Sending Firefly 808 Universal Digital Inputs to Analog Outputs
Posted by Rick Shao on 16 November 2015 06:25 AM

While in stand-alone mode, the Firefly 808 Universal's inputs will be sent immediately to their corresponding outputs. For example, the eight analog input connectors will have their signal forwarded to the weight analog outputs; if you connect an 8 channel ADAT connector, this will be send directly out the ADAT output. This is always the case in stand alone.

However it is possible to get your analog inputs out through the digital outputs (and vise-versa, if you so wish). It requires you to be connected to the computer and for you to use a DAW program, however.

First, set your operation mode to ADAT by selecting ADAT in both the Sync Source and ADAT sections of the Phonic mixer panel.

 

Next, push F4 (in Cubase) to set your output channels. In the case below, we're sending the signals out of the 808's eight line outputs.

 

You can also set your input sources. In the case below, these are the eight ADAT channels.

 

This is all there really is to it. You then add tracks to your project and monitor the tracks. Assign your input and output buses to these tracks as required. This will allow the audio from the ADAT inputs to be sent out the analog outputs. Naturally, users are able to select the ADAT outputs and analog inputs if they wish to do the reverse of what's displayed here.
