Modx audio over usb

Postby jami.m » Tue Jul 07, 2020 1:04 pm

Im using a yamaha modx for recording in cubase.
When i record audio using the modx usb out, does this mean that the audio is transferred digitally without any dac involved directly to cubase, or does it go through the (probably shitty) modx build in dac?

Pure digital, at least until you hear it on your analogue speakers. Also, the DAC in the MODX is of perfectly high enough quality for recording via the analogue audio outputs :)

Yes.

There aren't many 'shitty' DACs around these days, and rest assured that Yamaha doesn't use them in the Modx anyway! ;-)
