Topic: Question about a setup before purchase
I would be using ADI-2 Pro as my mastering chain converter with UAD Apollo 8P. I am using Genelec 8351 monitors which I connect digitally via UAD Apollo 8P. I have two questions:
1.) I am wondering whether I would be able to ADI-2 Pro in the following configuration. I would connect ADI-2 Pro digitally via Toslink SPDIF to UAD Apollo, then I would have Analog out 1/2 from ADI-2 PRO connected to my mastering analog chain which would return back to Analog in 1/2 on ADI-2 PRo. Would I be able then to monitor through AES output on ADI-2 Pro the final processed signal (then went through my analog chain) and not only the digital signal, that initially went in via SPDIF?
2.) When mixing and not using my analog mastering chain, will I be able to only use ADI-2 Pro as a bit-perfect digital through-pass for monitoring via AES on ADI-2Pro without the signal being sent throug analog out/analog in loop (without needing to disconnect HW)?
Thank you in advance, probably I would be able to find the answers to this by going through the manual thoroughly, but think it is the best to ask, to get a clear answer to these two questions. If the answer to both is yes, I will purchase it immediately.
Best regards, Tine
