it is letting you choose between a vanilla "SP-DIF" and an "AES-EBU" digital signal.
Tell me you're joking feline.
Dude wouldn't know the difference if he chose between the two without giving him the inside scoop...right?
Telling him the the two formats & not letting him know what goes on with them is like giving half the answer.
I know after 20 years of owning a Tascam DA30 which was the first digital recorder I had that has SPDIF coax & AESEBU xlr connections that I got a glimps of what happens when you try to use either of the two digital formats.
Plus I run into this if my digital settings for my s/c aren't set properly...consumer/professional.
Even my apogee big ben has all of the digital formats for consumer & professional.
Try sending digital out on the professional setting and not have the gear that will recieve this...nadda...nothing happens.
