I have a Tascam MX2424, Soundcraft Ghost and various hardware effects etc. I will eventually be purchasing a decent computer and using something like Reaper for in the box mixing aswell. The cpu soundcard (RME HDSPe AIO) will have 2 analog ins and outs, 1 midi in out, 1 adat in out, 1 spdif and 1 aes/ebu. My MX2424 has the analog and adat cards. I will want to use my outboard effects sometimes when mixing ITB so will need sends and returns to and from the cpu. I know the MX2424 analog and adat outputs are available simultaneously, so I'm thinking this might work. At 44.1 or 48khz, cpu soundcard adat out to MX adat in 1-8, MX analog out 1-8 to Ghost (mixer) as sends, Ghost returns to MX analog ins 9-16, MX adat out 9-16 to cpu adat in. Can anyone confirm that will work.....Alan?. Assuming that works, now what about 96k. I know some adat connections allow 96khz but you get half the track count, ie - 4in 4out. Do the MX2424 adat connections allow 88.2 or 96k 4in 4out. If the adat connections wont do 96k I'm thinking there should be a way to get a few sends and returns at 96k using the spdif and aes/ebu, cheers.
