Re: Audient iD22: follow-up
You don't need to connect the clock when using adat light pipe. The sync data is part of the data passed in the adat connection. So your devices will lock together, but your id22 is probably locking to your asp800.
Using the ASP800's inputs for recording is no problem. Neither is using the Aphex 141B DAC for exporting. Using them both together, without the ability to sync their respective DAC and ADC, is the problem. I get clicks in the audio when I do outboard processing, going out through the 141B and back in via the ASP800. The only way to avoid clicks is to bypass the 800's ADC.
By the way, it turned out that I was wrong about that. The correct thing to do is to set the clock source to Optical in the iD22 software. Sometimes it pays to re-read the manual.
Having fun at work lately
