Re: [MoAccess] How to change the clocking settings in motif xs8

When you talk about how your DAW is set, I hope that you aren't talking
about your recording host software like Sonar. Your recording settings
in Sonar, regarding sample rate/bit depth, have absolutely nothing to do
with the configuration of your audio interface. Any changes that you're
making regarding the connection of the Motif should be going on in the
FW1884 control panel.

Also, there is no need to concern yourself with clock transmition.
Unlike other digital audio formats, S/PDIF transmits at a fixed clock.
There is no need or ability to transmit a clock signal for an S/PDIF
connection.

I've used the Motif XS's s/PDIF connection very rarely. I used it with
my MOTU Ultra lite and my Presonus Firebox. It worked fine in both
cases. I'm sure that it can work with the FW1884, given the right FW1884
settings. Those other interfaces are very cheap when compared to the
FW1884.

Of course, mLAN is quite superior as a digital connection, but XP
doesn't have sufficient audio resources to run mLAN with another audio
interface at the same time. Based on what I've read, I think that Vista
will allow mLAN and another audio interface to run at the same time, but
I haven't had enough courage yet to try Vista on my DAW.

Ok good because that's what I have my DAW set to.  
So now I know that its not the clock settings so I am back at step 1.
Any other ideas anyone?  Poor me jajaja.

I've got the Tascam US-144. Maybe you should set sample clock source on
"internal", not automatic. In my case, I can't switch between 44.1 khz
and higher, if the clock source on tascam is set on automatic.

How ever, the owner's manual says that the digital out of the XS is on
44.1 khz , 24 bits. I don't think, you can change that for the XS.

No, it means that the digital connection on the Tascam will probably
need to be set for 48kHz. I don't know if that means that the entire
Tascam system must be at 44kHz or not.

I'm not even 100% certain that the s/pdif out on the Motif XS runs at
48. You might try using the Tascame at 48 to see if that makes a
difference.

I wouldn't run your DAW at 48kHz. That is an odd-ball rate. Most people
run at 44 or 96. If you run at 48, it will make it difficult to exchange
projects with others.

Thanks Bryan,
So that means that if I want to use the Motif through the SPDIF I have
to set everything to record at 48KHZ?

It should be 48kHz.

Its set to FW 1884 native 44.1 KHZ

Well, the clock setting on the Tascam is probably wrong.

You should investigate on the Tascam, though, as there isn't anything
that you can change on the Motif.

It was a guess that that is what is causing my problem.  I have the
Motif plugged in to the in of the Tscam FW 1884 and when I hold a note I
get clicks sometimes on the write then the left channel.  I have no idea
what to try to solve this.

Why do you need to do that? SPDIF on the XS works at a fixed sampling
rate of 48kHz, and I think, 24-bit resolution. Anyhow, you can't change
it.

Hi guise It looks like I need to edit the clock settings on my xs so it
will work correctly through  SPDIF but I don't know how.  Can anyone
give me the steps on how to get this done.?

thanks
