ES-6/ADAT connection problem

Post by iahimlop » Wed Sep 18, 2019 4:02 pm

I bought an ES6 from Expert Sleepers and i am tried to connect it to my Motu 8A interface, so I plugged the ADAT cable from es6 to motu optical in and patched a saw waveform from dixie2+ which turned ch1 purple. I guess the sounds should come from intput 9 from interface but nothing is happening, anything i do, i get no sound...

The reason why i bought this interface is because it's dc coupled, i had an apollo quad firewire with thunderbolt extension that have AC coupled.

Am i doing something wrong?

You also need the ES-3 for it to operate. I will say that the ES-3 is an incredible module to have - I dont know what I would do without it.

Thank you so much for info, that makes perfect sens. I want to buy that also, I order it 1 month ago but it still say that it will be available in 8-9 weeks, which is a lot of time. Do you know any store where it’s avalilable? On all that i’ve seen it say comming soon, so i guess all stores will get them at the same time

Your best bet would probably be to keep your eyes out for a used one if you can find one until they are back in stock.
