Question on RME ADI-2 Pro

Hi,

As per the subject listing, I have a question regarding digitizing line level input (from a phono pre-amp) to USB out to a PC?

Note: the used RME model is not the "FS" version.

Question: Can RME ADI-2 Pro digitize into 32B-768kHz PCM and DSD256?
(Using Vinyl Studio Pro software)

Thanks in advance.

For digitizing of vinyl with its whopping S/N ratio, crosstalk and generally amount of usable frequency content >200k in audio, I'd probably wait.
Maybe something with native 64 bit float and MHz passband would appear.. Until then I'd be still probably bit nervous .

To your question, yes ADI-2 Pro supports both quad DSD and 768k PCM formats, when you switch it to 2 channel mode. There are several limitations for direct DSD playback (where certain processing normally done at DAC isn't possible), it's all described in the manual.

But of course, modes has to be supported by the software you'd use, I have never tried VinylStudio you've mention, but it seems to support those ASIO or CoreAudio modes.

What do you mean by that?
You've bought the ADI-2 Pro and connected it to your PC, right?
Is it visible in as an entry in Windows Device manager (win+x shortcut, context menu)?
Do you installed the right driver for it?
http://www.rme-audio.de/en/downloads...%2Band%2B3%3D4
It's the second driver type for USB devices (the first is for UCX, UFX etc.) and the current version for Windows is named: driver_madiface_win_09685.zip

If that won't work, I'd definitely try
- reset device to factory default settings (Push volume encoder and small encoder 1 during powering of unit).

- check there is right device mode (ADI-2 can have several operational modes, by default it's the auto, which means, it will automatically switch to USB audio interface mode, when it's connected to computer, that should work out of box). Check manual about modes, if you inadvertently switch it to say preamp mode, USB interface won't be working.

- there can be some issue with particular computer. I'd test different USB ports there. Possibly also at some other Windows or Mac computer, just to be sure, the unit is fine.

If I won't succeed with neither of attempts, I'd contact RME support. They have regional contacts at their website, plus international email and phone support.

Good luck!

Thanks Michal,

Did installed the correct driver stated above.

Tomorrow will try the reset to factory default. Hopefully it will work.

Audio interface should appear in Device manager, as mentioned.
Either as unknown device with yellow exclamation mark symbol or in sound video and game controllers category, when driver gets installed. Possibly you can see it also in some erroneous state, if you double click on that, there should be some note about the reason.
If you can't find it there at all, then USB device wasn't successfully enumerated in system and further attempts with driver are worthless, because there is some kind of hardware issue. In that case, you should further focus on hardware setup (mentioned operational mode or ADI-2), test different USB port, different cable etc.

By changing from USB 3.0 to 2.0 port, problem resolved. Thanks.

Did a trial yesterday.

Set the unit to "DAC" mode and managed to record through USB into DSD256.
