But when I use the RCA output to the input of my interface, the timecode 'slips' every few seconds.
I have a DM24 also which I have tried as both Master and Slave for the clock.
I have tried Word CLock(using BNC connectors), ADAT, etc to try and fix the 'slip' which causes a little pop.
The Roland has neither word clock not any other visible means of setting as master/slave as regards clock source. SO I have tried it as slave both to the DM24 and the interface in my PC.
The interface has always seemed quite happy with the ADAT for the sync. But when I try the SPDIF optical out of the Roland to the input of my interface I get no signal, though I can if I use the RCA connections between the same two devices.
Now the burning question - will a stereo optical signal be passed to an 8 channel i/o ADAT, which is what my PC interface (soundcard) uses. Or even though the both share the same connectors one cannot be recognised be the other.
I had this notion that the Stereo SPDIF output will be picked up by channels 1+2 of the ADAT?
ANother quick question - do the BNC connectors have to be terminated using one of the T-shaped connectors with the resistor on both devices. I have a single cable running between the DM24 and soundcard.
Can anyone tell me why I bothered going digital - hardest question of the lot!
