it does take a while to figure out a workflow but go one step at a time
The simplest setup is Analog In/Out and doesn’t require the sample rates to match etc – just make sure you disconnect the USB
Use the Analog 2in 2out and use the Logic I/O plugin
Save yourself pain and match the Input numbers to output numbers and also go into Logic I/O Labels and label everything – this makes finding things in the I/O Plugin easier
The machine is powerful but with that comes complexity so you can configure it in many different ways – some FX are mono in or summed mono in and stereo out, etc..
Setup Emote – make sure that your ethernet is reliable and don’t skimp on adaptors; the frustration isn’t worth it
Then in your system prefs, network, make sure that ethernet is first in the list so that takes priority
I go as far as turning WIFI off.
If you get unreliability, then do the inverse, turn Ethernet off and run wifi, etc..
In Logic, the Emote plugin is purely a UI to control the H9000 and to automate parameters and it works reliably (in my experience)
It doesn’t pass audio.
For this reason, I run a single instance of Emote on the Stereo Bus(doesn’t affect sound) and do all my H9000 automation on that track…
Reason is cos if Emote does disconnect, you only need to open a single instance to reconnect and find all instances to do the same – depends on your workflow
Combine your (1)Atlas and (2)H9000 – I didn’t have to have clock drift activated but not needed cos I have ADAT connected (seems ok)
