All your digital gear need to get a clock (sync) from your Big Ben.
Big Ben word clock
out 1 -> 003 (world clock in)
out 2 -> Apogee Rosetta (world clock in)
out 3 -> Api (world clock in) if you want to use this digital. You can use it as a analog pre as well. (then analog out 1,2 -> 003 line in 1,2)
out 4 -> M audio octane (word clock in)
Remember to set all digital units to slave. 003, you will find this in the digi software im sure (dont know the unit well)
And then the preamps.
M Audio Octane Analog out -> Agogee rosetta Analog in
Then Rosetta adat out - 003 adat in
- API spdif out -> 003 spdif in
2nd option : Api analog out -> 003 LIne in 1,2.
then the monitors.
- 003 main out (monitor main L,R) -> Yamaha 80s.
Then you will have 14 mic pres (003 = 4x, maudio =8x, api =2x)
I would use the Dangerous d-box as the monitor section. But its easier to use the 003 to start with. If you want to use the d-dox then you need to :
003 adat out -> Apogee rosette adat in -> Apogee rosette analog out -> d-box analog in. D-box monitor out -> yamaha 80s.
The converters in rosetta is alot better than in the 003. So it would be clever to use this unit to its max.
Hope ut helps. i dont know if this is the best way to do it but at least its a solution =)
003 is a fine interface, but with the rosetta,d-box and api you could maybe be better off with a smother interface. Like a RME raydat. (all digital-ADAT) so then you could use the converters in Rosetta,dbox and api to its max.
good luck mate. And where did steal all this nice gear?
