      hello, and thank you for your effort in this forum.

      i thought i understood, and it is working now, but i do not completely understand why, i had a different routing in my head which did not seem to work.

      i want to use the H8000FW as two separate units, each getting stereo in and sending stereo out on there own dedicated channels using ADAT.

      this is the routing i use now:

      MAIN INPUTS

      ADAT in 1 -> IN1 ADAT in 5 -> IN5
      ADAT in 2 -> IN2 ADAT in 6 -> IN6
      ADAT in 3 -> IN3 ADAT in 7 -> IN7
      ADAT in 4 -> IN4 ADAT in 8 -> IN8



      DSP A i/p routing

      ADAT in 1 -> IN1


        -> IN5
      ADAT in 2 -> IN2


        -> IN6
      ADAT in 3 -> IN3


      Show More...
        -> IN7
      ADAT in 4 -> IN4


         -> IN8



      DSP B i/p routing

      ADAT in 5 -> IN1


        -> IN5

      ADAT in 6 -> IN2


        -> IN6

      ADAT in 7 -> IN3


        -> IN7

      ADAT in 8 -> IN4


         -> IN8



      MAIN OUTPUTS (Analog)

      dsp A out 1 (+) 


        -> ANA1
      dsp A out 2 (+)  


      -> ANA2


           (+) 


        -> ANA3


          (+)  


      -> ANA4



      MAIN OUTPUTS (Digital)

      dsp B out 1 (+)


      -> DIG1
      dsp B out 2 (+)


      -> DIG2


      (+)


      -> DIG3


      (+)


        -> DIG4



      ADAT Outputs

      MAIN out 1 -> OUT1 MAIN out 5 -> OUT5
      MAIN out 2 -> OUT2 MAIN out 6 -> OUT6
      MAIN out 3 -> OUT3 MAIN out 7 -> OUT7
      MAIN out 4 -> OUT4 MAIN out 8 -> OUT8



      AES Outputs


      -> OUT1 


        -> OUT5


      -> OUT2 


        -> OUT6


      -> OUT3  


      > OUT7


      -> OUT4 


      -> OUT8



      FIREWIRE1 Outputs


      -> OUT1 


        -> OUT5


      -> OUT2 


        -> OUT6


      -> OUT3  


      > OUT7


      -> OUT4 


      -> OUT8



      FIREWIRE2 Outputs


      -> OUT1 


        -> OUT5


      -> OUT2 


        -> OUT6


      -> OUT3  


      > OUT7


      -> OUT4 


      -> OUT8


      question 1

      why do i have to connect the ADATin to the Main in AND the INs of the DSPs ? isn't it enought to connect the ADATin straight and only to the INs of the DSPs ?

      question 2

      how come that there is in the ADAT outputs menu not the possibility to  go from DSPout to the ADAT output ? wouldn't it be logical to have the DSPout as a possibility ?

      question 3

      did i connect it right?

      thank you

      Looks like it should work, although you may have to shuffle the ADAT channels.

      To understand the routing you need to study the User Manual. In particular, use of the Factory Routings would have saved you a lot of time. Look at "ADAT 8 Track A,B" on  page 30 of the latest manual – this is essentially what you are trying to do.

      To answer your specific questions:

      question 1

      why do i have to connect the ADATin to the Main in AND the INs of
      the DSPs ? isn't it enought to connect the ADATin straight and only to
      the INs of the DSPs ?

      Basically the unit has a main input block "MAIN INPUTS" to which you have connected the ADAT inputs. The you have to connect the DSP inputs to the main input block. This is similar to the use of what used to be called "binding posts."

      question 2

      how come that there is in the ADAT outputs menu not the possibility
      to  go from DSPout to the ADAT output ? wouldn't it be logical to have

      the DSPout as a possibility ?

      Again you have a main output block "MAIN OUTPUTS" which is fed by the DSPouts. You then connect this to the other outputs.

      question 3

      did i connect it right?

      I think so – does it work ?
