Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question

Are you trying to send multi tracks, or the mixdown? Which interface are you using?

These are mixes going into a Safire focus rite pro 40.

Ok, and where are you plugging into the Focusrite?

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Digital in

How are you going from RCA to optical?

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
RCA digital

Ok, the Focusrite I was looking at only had optical, that was a bit confusing. Which DAW program are you using on your computer?

Hi. Have left the studio. Any chance you can help us with the info you have? Otherwise we have to wait till next week for more info. Thanks.

Yes, they all work the same. As long as your recording software in your computer recognizes your interface, they all work the same way. Go to your I/O settings, and you'll see a bunch of different options for the Focusrite. You'll want to select the S/PDIF inputs 1 and 2. That will tell the program to listen to those inputs on the interface.

Then, create two tracks. Set the input of track 1 to input on S/PDIF 1, and the second track to input S/PDIF 2.

Now that the digital routing is in sync, it will record the two tracks simultaneously to your DAW, and it will preserve the digital quality.
