Hello, please, help me…
for a new composition with a lot of fx, I just wanted to try using the 5.1 output of the UR-824 (drone sounds moving around the room would be quite cool, right?). I am an absolute newbie but before asking here, I have tried everything and I have even read the f* manual, but probably I did not understand everything. As much as I know, I have to use the ADAT mode of the optical outputs, because this mode provides up to 8 channels (or whatsoever depending on the bit rate), and SPDIF provides only 1 stereo channel (L/R).
The Steinberg UR824 is connected with the Logitech Z906 with an optical cable (output A from UR-824 to input 4 in Z906). This works correctly when I use the SPDIF mode of the UR824.
I created the 5.1 output bus (deleted the old stereo one and reassigned all outputs of the plugins to the new bus), assigned the Mix 1 L/R to ADAT Out 1/2, Mix 2 L/R to ADAT Out 3/4, etc. The problem is that when I set the UR-824 in ADAT mode, I get absolutely no sound from the Logitech Z906, while in SPDIF I hear the sound without problems (of course only Mix 1 L/R).
In SPDIF mode, I can position the sound everywhere in the 5.1 field, but of course, when I move it to the rear part I get no sound at all, because I only have 2 channels…
Any ideas? All help would be appreciated!
