bnc terminator question

hi Im going too hook up a pro tools mix system with 3 converters (apogee & 888/24) I`m going to connect them together with superclock. do I need terminator plugs for the last and the first(master) converter?

you only terminate the last device in the chain, usually. Also, I don't think those non-digi devices accept "superclock", although it is possible that it would still work for some reason.

If the digi has a regular w/c output, I would use that instead. Read the manuals for these slave devices, different manufacturers recommend different clocking configurations. Apogee, for example, recommends using a BNC T-connector instead of looping though the In and Out ports...
