Because I want to record everything at 48khz/24-bit for film and audio. Plus the fact that I also use two MR816’s linked via Adat to the UFX and they are not capable of auto-detecting the sample rate (they have to be manual changed using a firewire cable), so it is easier to standardize at a single sample rate.
Quite odd that. I would not expect the FF which is set to be clock master at 48k (I presume) to be able to handle incoming 44.1k without glitching. Steadyclock is very clever, but RME don’t claim it can do on-the-fly SRC (unless I’m missing it)
What does the Fireface utility say?
I wonder if the FF is in fact clocking to the incoming 44.1, which would mean Nuendo is running at 44.1, which would probably cause at least an error message or possibly the whole system running 10% slow…
