I have old ADAT tapes to transfer, but only one ADAT machine so I have to do each one separately. I would use 2 or 3 tapes (8 tracks each) for 16 or 24 tracks. I used to have a MOTU interface with the 9 pin sync, but now I use the MOTU 16A which has optical in/out. I can set the unit to CLOCK from the ADAT stream, but is there a way using the ADAT optical to get Nuendo to follow the “timecode” or is that even present in an ADAT stream?
I want to load one tape (8 tracks) and then using the same ADAT machine, load a second or third tape and have Nuendo “jump” to the proper timecode spot so all tracks will then play back in sync. Is this possible using just the optical ADAT stream?
