converters gave up the ghost. Couple questions

So my lucid 8824 just wouldn't turn on today. I normally have it hooked up to my dig192. Obviously lucid isnt open today and gear orphanage was closed as well. Work to be done.

I managed to grab a 192 dac card off ebay from someone local and I can pick it up. When I calibrated the outputs on my lucid 8824 I kinda winged it a bit I just sent a -20db [email protected] out and adjusted the pots on my monitor controller until a durroughs meter read -20db and repeated that for each output.

Well now that I have a variable trim I may as well set it up proper.

Now I know to set protools internals to -20 and i need to have the outputs read 1.223v on a multimeter but I'm hazy on if I am correct in using a sine at [email protected] for this operation. Can someone clarify this for me?

der I just read you can't put analogs in the digi 192 boxes hurr de durr. Do you guys think if I remove a digital card I can use the dac card?

That limitation kinda blind sided me.

I got a response on the duc that this is possible but the 192 has to be the clock source after doing this.

If you are talking about putting an analog card into a 192Digital IO, I am pretty sure it won't work at all. The power supply of a 192Digital IO does not include everything required by the analog output circuits. Sorry. I have no idea what the DUC poster was trying to say.

yeah everything I found about this shows that you cant do it but he seems to know what hes talking about. Maybe I should inquire more.
