I have been reading in the internet that, in general, connecting AES50 to spdif is possible and even such cable exist. My point is that I don’t want to purchase a card and maybe special cable, spend 2 months trying this out to finally find out that it does not work properly, thus my question to ‘real world’ Cubase users with experience.
Else, does anyone have connected 2 PC with X32 ? Which card/device is used in with the other PC ?
I see, kind of risky. On the other side, the only viable alternative I have found is the Klark Teknik KT-AES50 card that costs =~ 400 euros.
Do you personnally use VST system link and which hardware in between?
Steve, I am keen on learning from you what are those cheaper ways to achieve the same goal. I am not stuck on using this way if I can use cheaper (and simpler) ways to drive my vst instruments on the second PC.
Technology evolves, not always the best way, but if it does, let’s use it
AES/EBU is a very different protocol to AES50. AES/EBU is 2 channel digital audio and is compatible with SPDIF. AES is pretty much a balanced version of SPDI F and also at +4db ( I think) - you can usually plug an AES output into an SPDIF input if you ground Pin 3 on the XLR. May not work the other way around as the level may be too high.
AES50 is Behringer and others multi channel digital audio - completely different protocol
