PowerMac output to Digi 96's input via lightpipe?


I have a question here about using the lightpipe.

I have a PowerMac G5 which has the lightpipe output at the back panel.
Can i just patch a lightpipe from the mac output to the DIGI 96 lightpipe input?
and then can i record the audio which is playing on the itune to the protools with stereo?

what's the setting? HOW?

please help, many thanks

"lightpipe" is an Alesis term for their 8 channel spec over optical cables. This is not supported by your mac.

What you could do is make sure your device is set to sp/dif mode, and hook it up to your computer. Make sure your clocking is correct (i.e., one device master and one slave) and this should work.
