Help me get my Burl Mothership up and running! DAW Software

Help me get my Burl Mothership up and running!


I am having an issue getting my Burl Mothership to track using the Burl A/D converters.

- Pro Tools HD IO 8x8x8
- Pro Tools HD 12.5 Software
- HD Native Thunderbolt box - The Burl Mothership is connected to this box via a Digilink cable.
- Burl Mothership with Digilink and 8 A/D converters. No D/A as of yet.

I am using a patch bay to patch:

Mic -> Mic pre -> Burl A/D.

Through this I can get a signal going into the Burl Mothership A/D converters (the LED's light up correctly) but I cannot get that signal into Pro Tools.

The Burl is connected via Digilink to the HD Native Thunderbolt but I am unsure how to get the signal from the Burl A/D into Pro Tools to record.

Am I correct in thinking that I could use A-1 in pro tools as my track input when recording and patching in the 1st Burl A/D channel? A-2 for the 2nd Burl A/D channel and so on?

Do I need a D/A converter in the Burl Mothership for the A/D to work? I would assume not.

I am also trying to use the DAW clock setting on the BURL. Everytime I try to use the Burl INT clock I get an error in pro tools.

Attached are some screens of my setup. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
