Ramsa converters w/ 002 clock troubles

I've been using the Ramsa WZ AD96 for a few years with a Digi 002...using the adat clocking option in Pro Tools LE. I had been using the Alesis AI-3 for my D/A converters. Never a problem.
I just picked the Ramsa WZ DA96...but I haven't been able to figure out how to have the Ramsa's clock the 002... w/o clicking and jitter....

I made the AD96 the master and connected the AD and DA together with BRC cable via the Word Clock out/in. It should be working but I'm still getting a little snap, crackle and pop...unless i use the Pro Tools LE internal clock, which i dont want to use.

Hope this makes sense....
If anyone has any thoughts or experience....please help.

Thanks so much

Pin change in the Ramsa

I don't know if you know this but in order to have the Ramsa send clock, you have to open it up and do a pin change so that it works as a master clock or from the internal crystal.

You can find detailed information about this on the DA7.com forum. Do a search there and you'll find it.

I did the pin change and my Ramsa works perfectly well with my RME Fireface, with the Ramsa as Master clock.

Good Luck,
Peace

Thanks for the reply Marco.
I have switched the jumpers on the master WZ AD96...and it worked great before i added the WZ DA, but when i run both the WZ AD and the WZ DA, I still can't clock the 002 without clicking/jitter....
I'll check the out DA7 forum...
Thanks again

DA7 board

Maybe the WZ-DA96 has to be set to slave in order to clock from the WZAD96.

Anyway there are some users on the DA7 board who have/had both units and know how to get them working.

I only the have the WZAD96 and soon will be trying the WZAD96M.

Good Luck,

Peace
