How can I sync my OctoPre MkII Dynamic, Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic or Clarett OctoPre?

Applies to: OctoPre MKII Dynamic, Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic, Clarett OctoPre

There are a number of synchronisation options available:

OctoPre as clock source master - ADAT:

Connect the OctoPre's optical output to the digital device's optical input and ensure that the receiving device is set to receive clock from the ADAT input (also ensuring the sample rates on both devices are matched).

The OctoPre's clock source should be set to "Internal" and the Locked LED will light up Green.

OctoPre as clock source master - Word clock:

Connect the OctoPre's optical output to the digital device's optical input. Then connect the OctoPre MkII Dynamic's word clock output to digital device's word clock input . Ensure that the receiving device is set to receive clock from the word clock input (also ensuring the sample rates on both devices are matched).

The OctoPre's clock source should be set to "Internal" and the Locked LED will light up Green.

PLEASE NOTE: The ADAT connection will transmit the digital audio. The word clock only provides a synchronisation signal and does not carry audio data.

OctoPre as clock source slave - ADAT:

Connect the OctoPre's optical output to the optical input of the digital device.

Connect the optical output of the digital device to the OctoPre's optical input (also ensuring the sample rates on both devices are matched).

OctoPre as Clock Source Slave - WordClock:

Connect the OctoPre to the digital device via ADAT and connect a BNC cable (from the receiving device or any other device in the digital chain) to the Word Clock input (also ensuring the sample rates on both devices are matched).
