My previous post titled "VST Connect 3 - Remote Cue Mix Playback Clipping " was based on tests I was running with a MOTU 2408 MkIII as the “Connect Perfomer” side hardware. Since that time, I have purchased a UR12 interface as ultimately this is right sized for the single guitarist, bass player, etc. What came to mind is that this would might fix the clipping issue, though I wasn’t sure I could tell because it doesn’t have hardware metering-nevertheless, I was going to rely on my ears. However, a new issue cropped up. (I mention clipping as I have heard nothing about and perhaps it is related to the new problem)
My understand is that the “Mastr” fader is the overall volume control for the headphone mix, however as far I can tell it is NOT really in the final output path. It appears to be being summed with the “Studio” fader output’
The manual says:
The “MASTR” (Master) channel, which controls the overall listening level for the artist. On top of this channel, select which outputs of the Performer audio interface should provide the entire monitor (headphone) mix.
I have checked this several times. Again, this might be related to the clipping problem I have been having. Anyone else see notice this–easy to check, just turn your Mastr all the way down and see if you still have sound…
Finally, I’ll mention, I have intermittent sync problems. This is a LAN based connection using 300mbps wireless (for the Connect side and a 1Gbps connect DAW. Most of the time its ok, but I am forced to stop and restart playback to regain sync. I will make a new posting about this, but I thought I’d mention it to see if anyone experience the same issue.
