Problem: Akai DPS24 ADAT expansion card. Recognised by system, accepts ADAT optical sync, but no audio in or out.
I've had the DPS24 for over 10 years and still enjoy using it. It's primary function is now as a mixing desk using the onboard ADAT for essentially 8-channel "passthrough" to an RME <Digiface USB> ADAT interface to my MacBook and Logic.
I now want to go to 24-channel passthrough, as the RME has 4 ADAT ports.
I've added the Akai IB-24ADT 16-channel ADAT I/O card, which is detected by the DPS24 as I now have 24 channels displaying in the various patching / routing screens.
The problem is I get no audio - either in or out. I have spent the last year (I know) trying to get this to work. Items covered:
- Various tests concerning optical sync. It can sync to an input on either ADAT 9-16 or 17-24 in setup.
I have cleaned the connector using expansive Deoxit.
I have performed basic functional tests on the expansion card, including the onboard 3v3 and 2v5 regulators, and capacitor and resistor short / open circuit.
I have even looked for a second ADAT expansion, including a "Wanted" advert in SOS readers ads.
Time then to ask if anyone has had experience with the DPS24 ADAT expansion card?
- Anything similar?
ADAT IB-24ADT card to sell?
Do you have a DPS24 and are happy to plugin my expansion card to test?
Any help very much appreciated!
