Hello,

My name is David.

Yes, it is possible for the 888 to operate in stand alone mode. To do this:

First, switch off any digital devices that can send a word clock signal to 888/24 I/O channel 1 and 2 digital input ports.
Next switch on the 888/24 I/O which will make the 888/24 I/O search for a word clock signal on digital input ports 1 and 2.
When a word clock signal is not detected it switch to using its own internal clock signal.
Note that when in stand alone mode it will use analog inputs and AES/EBU outputs 1 through 8.

Please let me know if you need further assistance. Also, please provide a positive rating (3, 4, or 5 star) as that is how I receive credit for my work.

Thanks,

David.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
