First, a little background:
I’ve been using an RME Fireface UFX together with an ADI-8 DS MKIII and the delay compensation for external effects never worked for me (see other posts about this issue…). I always hoped Steinberg would add negative delay compensation someday, and with only a handful of outboard gear it was inconvenient, but I could live with the workarounds. Since I now have 16 channels of hardware compressors, equalizers and so on and it looks like Steinberg will NEVER solve this issue, I need to change something in my setup.
Instead of ditching Cubase and using another DAW (like every human being with common sense would be doing in this situation), I figured I’d give it one more chance and get an RME RayDAT and hook up three ADI-8 DS MKIII to it.
But before I do this, I want to know:
Is there anybody who is using an RME RayDAT (I guess the exact converter used is not crucial) with external hardware effects? Does the delay compensation for external effects (Ping) work for you?
