I have looked high and low for a defined answer on this topic and hope someone here has been down my path and found the answer.
I have the ADA 8200 sync setting to "Slave ADAT" in.
Optical cables in and out to the UMC 1820. I am using the internal clock from the UMC since the ADA is the slave. I have access to all 8 UMC inputs and the 8 ADAT channels from the ADA. They arm and record just fine.
Driver mode is set to ASIO in Cakewalk. Playback and record master is set to UMC ASIO Driver 1 out and in respectively. Sync in Cakewalk is set to trigger & freewheel.
Problem is with monitoring the ADA Channels.
I have good headphone monitoring for the 8 UMC inputs but have to use "Input Echo" on the 8 ADAT channels to get headphone monitoring. I have tried running everything on both the 44100 and 4800 sampling rates with no difference.
I have a heavy workload on most projects so I cannot drop my buffer size lower than 512. This causes waaaay too much latency in the monitoring to effectively record.
Surely these units were made to play nice with each other, no?
