How do I connect my Compounder to my Digi 002 so that I can process tracks with it and monitor the processed signal?
Connect a pair of the 002 outputs to the inputs of the compounder and then connect the outputs of the compounder into two of the 002 inputs.
It is always best to use balanced connectors to minimize cable interference so use balanced TRS jacks connected from the 002 outputs to the XLR inputs of the Compounder and connect the +4dBu XLR outputs of the compounder to the inputs of the 002. If using any of inputs 5-8 on the 002 make sure the nominal input level switches are set to +4.
Now in Pro Tools you can route all of the tracks you want processed by the Compounder to the outputs feeding it, then make two new mono tracks (or one stereo) for the inputs from the Compounder and route these to the monitor outputs. This will allow you to record and monitor tracks that have been processed byt he Compounder.
Connecting ISA 428 to a Digi 002.
If you have the ADC card installed then you can connect via ADAT optical - connect from either of the ADAT outs on the 428 ADC to the ADAT IN on the 002. This format supports 8 channels of digital...
Connecting an Octopre to a Digi 002.
If the optional A/D converter card is fitted then you can use a single ADAT cable to connect from either of the Octopre ADAT outputs to the ADAT in of the 002. Make sure that the bit depth and...
My compounder gets very hot. Is this a problem?
This is not a problem - the Compounder is a class A device and so will generate heat. With any class A equipment it is important not to cover any of the air vents and it is always advisable to...
