I’m trying to use the SSL Alphamix AX and the Madiextreme 64 to get tracks in and out of Nuendo.
The unit works fine at 48 Khz but the converters over load at 96 Khz. There is a crackling noise present in each track the severity of which increases depending on the level the track was recorded at. Just speaking in a normal voice causes the converter to break up if you whisper into the mic you get an almost clean track.
I’ve been doing a merry go round with SSL support, they are convinced this is a clock issue although the track.exe software program they provide to set up the alphalink and the madi card is showing that the clock is locked ( the card is providing the clock through Madi).
Surely if this was a clocking issue the noise would not be level dependent and the units work fine when set up in 48 khz. Has anyone seen this type of behaviour before? I’ve tried virtual every combination I can and nothing works.
Personally I believe the unit is defective but thought I’d ask on a few forums before I returned it.
I’m using Nuendo 5 32and 64 bit and Cubase 6 32 and 64 bit . The Daw is an I7 340 second gen, on an Asus P8P67le, with 32 meg of Crucial DDR3 ram a UAD2 Quad and the Madiextreme64. Win7 Pro 64. Take care,Logan
