    Cool ADAT Sync

    Hi,


    My Hammerfall and my DM-24 both have 9-Pin "D" connectors marked "ADAT Sync". What are these for?

    When the two are hooked up with a D Sub 9 pin connection, (sending digital signal from your mixer to your sound card), it will follow the same word clock lock and keep the signal the same.
    Some gear also uses a coax connection to do this.

    Most big audio studios, and post productions houses use one master sync unit for the whole studio (studio a, b, c, etc.). Or you can use a piece of gear in your studio as the master sync, like your mixer or sound card.

    Get a 9pin d sub connector from a computer/audio store and hook one to your mixer, and the other to your soundcard. This will keep the signal between the two better, and be a better representation of what is being sent from your mixer to the soundcard. I would set your Mixer as the master source.

    hope this helps...

    peace

    dj,


    In my case I've got the Aardsync II as the master sync, so I'm assuming that I don't need to worry about the ADAT Sync.

    As long as all your digital gear is locked up to it, don't worry it. Im not to fimilar with the Hammerfall sound cards, and don't know how they connect to the word clock, (coax etc)
    I was guessing that it was the 9pin D sub.


    peace
