i will be using the a/d on the hedd for tracking but how do i use d/a on the hedd at all times for monitoring?
can i track with the a/d and monitor with the d/a at the same time or can i only use them one at a time?
my 002r has spdif in and out and my central station has spdif in.
what about latency issues?
right now i am guessing that they would hook up like this;
mic pre left and right outs---hedd analog l/r input------hedd spdif out-----002r spdif in----
002r spdif out------hedd spdif input-----hedd spdif out (but this spdif out is being used for tracking so this is where i do not know what to do)---central station spdif input----monitors.
am i going to have to re patch everything every time i want to go from tracking to monitoring?
seems pointless to have d/a if i can not use it while i am tracking.
Hedd analogue out to cs analogue in.
If you go spdif into the cs, you're using the cheap conversion on that instead of the expensive conversion on your hedd.
The cs digital input is redundant for you.
