Behringer ADA8000 outputs
I have recently bought the ADA8000 and have been a bit confused with regards to the outputs.
The reason i got the box was to use in conjunction with my Presonus 1818Vsl but not for inputs. I Have a Mackie 1604-VLZ pro 16 channel mixer. I was looking at DAW controllers and wasn't impressed. I much preferred the routing option as I already had a nice desk.
Everything is hooked up fine with the optical and I can get a sound out of the Behringer and presonus together into my desk.
I am using Reaper more recently and I can't understand why, when I want the 8 line outs on the Behringer to operate as Mono they send a mono signal through two of the outputs at the same time.
Kick drum: Route to ADAT 1 mono (output reaper) - (Input Mackie Desk) Channels 1+2 have that signal
Snare: Route to ADAT 2 mono (output reaper) - (input Desk channels) 3+4 have that signal.
I understand Stereo Bussing but it doesn't seem that reaper is going to let me pan channels or isolate a mono signal without it coming from the behringer in two channels.
I get that ADA8000 may operate on stereo pairs of outputs but I don't get the routing options.
do I have to make Behringer the Master or slave?
if anyone has a answer to this i'd be really grateful.
