Antelope Orion 32 and MCI console Digital Converters

Antelope Orion 32 and MCI console

Hi,

I've switched converters going from Steinberg MR816 to antelope audio Orion32.

I'm running an MCI jh500 console. The problem I'm having is that any of the unbalanced gear I have in the patchbay (old dbl comps etc) works when using the Steinberg MR816 converters but the same gear does not work when using the Orion32 converters.

I get the same level to the console from either converter. Also, all of my balanced gear patched in works fine.

Any thoughts? Thank you!

Make sure you have the correctly wired DB25s coming off the the back of the Orion. I believe they use the Tascam wiring config.

Hi, I lifted the shield on all unbalance gear to the patchbay of the MCI jh500 (had jumper from pins 1-3). All gear is passing audio now.

Thanks

I would guess you should have lifted the minus and kept the shield attached, [depending on your ground scheme], usually balanced to unbalanced issues involve either tying the minus and ground, or lifting the minus. Check with Antelope and maybe Mara Machines about the right approach.
