My setup currently is using the Eclipse v4 analog INPUT (stereo) from an analog Mackie mixer Aux Send (stereo) with the analog OUT of the Eclipse (stereo) back into (2) channels of the Mackie..All is well and good with that part.
However, I’d like to use the Eclipse as an external effects with my DAW (Cubase 9.5 Pro) and a Universal Audio Apollo 8 Thunderbolt. Question is… can I use the Apollo SPDIF OUT into the Eclispe SPDIF IN and the Eclipse SPDIF OUT back into the Apollo SPDIF IN? Given the correct cables and internal settings (clock I/O etc.) are taken into account. Would this be the correct way to patch the Eclipse into the external effects of my DAW? Would the ADAT option work better?
