S/PDIF Out to jack on Focusrite 18i8?

Hi!

I want to use the Strymon Bigsky reverb as a send in my DAW for VST and hardwaresynths. To do this, I want to send the SPDIF output of my Focusrite 18i8 to my Strymon Bigskypedal so that I can send the bigsky signal back to one of my inputs in another channel to record it as an AUX. Im totally not familiar with S/PDIF and want to know if there is some kind of S/PDIF to stereojack solution? If yes, what kind of cable would I need?

Hi! Spdif carries a digital signal, the inputs on your reverb are analog. So you can't connect these directly, the signal will need to be converted to analog first. You could hook up one of the headphone outputs (not ideal) or get something like a behringer ada8200 for cheap extra analog inputs and outputs to connect hardware to use as inserts in your daw. You'll connect the ada8200 digitally to your Scarlet

tnx! I tried the headphone outputtrick, worked to some degree, but this causes feedback at a certain level and if lower, the audiosignal of the reverb is just too soft and guess mediocre digital quality. Now ordered a D/A converter and still waiting on it to be received which I assume will solve the problem!

Here for the gear
 

How did you work it out? I also have a Focusrite 6i6 and a bigsky and I am trying to do the same thing (use it as effect sent to my project through the S/PDIF ports).

Lives for gear
S/PDIF is digital, if you convert it to analog you can use it for analog divices.
