Neve 1073 DPD to Babyfacepro? Converters

hello,

i already connected my 1073 mic preamps to my babyface pro input 3 but i also want to use the converters of the dpd version...

i heard that it can be difficult to connect the dpd to babyface pro, is that true?

how do i connect the dpd converters to my babyface pro?
i uploaded 2 screenshots... do i need to connect "AES SYNC" to my babyface pro SPDIF with the following cable XLR to SPDIF?


or how do i do that?

your Unit does NOT have an AES output (so you cannot convert to SPDIF) .. it has DSD outputs .. the AES is a SYNC INPUT .. not an OUTPUT ..

sorry man ...

see page 3 of the manual .. https://ams-neve.com/wp-content/uplo...manual-1_0.pdf

It absolutely DOES have AES outputs, what do you think those two XLRs on the left of the picture above are? The DSD outputs are on BNC, the AES on XLR, from the same page on the manual you linked to "OUT 1/L and 2/R - Male XLRs outputting standard AES 110ohm digital audio.". The reason there's two XLRs is for higher sample rates.

It should work with that cable, AES>SPDIF is easier than SPDIF>AES.

well, happy to stand corrected .. i read past that too fast this morning ..

then AES to SPDIF converter or can you use a properly wired AES to SPDIF Cable ???

so on the left side the 2 (OUT 1/L and OUT 2/R) are AES Outputs?
and on the left the 2 (DSD L and R) are DSD Outputs with BNC? (look at the picture)


but which cable is AES > SPDIF? 2x AES Output to SPDIF?

rtfm!

you need an external format converter to convert aes to spdif optical.

Looking at the ports on the BFP would have worked also.

right .. Single for 96k .. not Double for 192k ...

not too many folks are working at 192k .. but since this Unit has DSD i could see that might be a chance ..

not sure if you could use two of them for that purpose .. there are probably better solution at that point ..

I think from what’s being posted you need optical in this instance, but to go aes to coax spdif you just need a cable wired correctly. AES and SPDIF are identical formats, aes being balanced and SPDIF carrying various metadata, but you can go between them.
