Problem Detected with Audio Clock
Hi guys,
I am running Pro Tools 10.3.1 on my new Windows 10 computer. I am using a Digirack 002.

A few weeks ago, I worked on a short film with this exact same setup and everything worked swimmingly and I got it done, no problems.

So today, I got a documentary project that will be due at the end of August and, of course, now my setup is having issues and I and pulling my hair out trying to figure out what the problem is.

The session appears to be in 48K sample rate and, at first, when I opened the project up, the light indicating the sample rate wouldn't change over to that from 44.1 and when I tried to play it I got the error message "Problem Detected With Audio Clock. Check that your clock source and sample rate are correct."

After some sleuthing, I determined that my computer was trying to use the digirack for system sounds and that was the reason why it wouldn't switch over.

So I went to preferences and changed the default audio player *from* the digirack *to* my internal sound card.

Now I open pro tools up and the light switches over to the 48K light. Problem solved, I thought!

Except it wasn't. Although the light switches, when I go into pro tools and try to play the project, I still get the error message "Problem Detected with Audio Clock. Check that your clock source and sample rate are correct."

So now I'm thinking, "Hey, maybe it's just this project. Maybe I need to get new OMF files or something."

Now I open up the short film project that *was working not two weeks ago with zero problems* and now IT won't work either.

What am I doing wrong, guys?

Thanks for your help!

Re: Problem Detected with Audio Clock
Is the clock source set to something besides what it should be (internal) (in hardware control panel)? That's the most obvious thing that would cause this.

Make sure you do no have any other audio apps using the interface.

Failing that, normal troubleshooting stuff...

Trash prefs (and do so again as you try other things), try starting with a new empty session (not a copy, not from a template), create a new admin account and test from there. Still having problems, it sounds like an interface issue... test using the local sound card (with ASIO4LL if needed) as the playback engine.

Thank you for your response. The clock source is greyed out in the hardware setup. This may be the issue, but I don't know how to fix it.

I don't think the Digi002 Rack (or console) is supported with Windows 10. The latest drivers were released on March 11, 2011, long before Windows 10 was released:


You might try downloading the Digi003 Rack drivers and installing them, but that seems like a long shot to me.

I don't know how you got it to work a couple of weeks ago, but not being able to select a clock source seems like a big problem, probably a driver compatibility issue with Windows 10.

Perhaps someone else out there has gotten the Digi002 to work with Windows 10 and could tell you how they went about it.

Edit: Here is a link to a post about Windows 10 and the Digi002. They got it to work on 1 Digi002 but not the other one they have. Different firmware versions was given as a possible reason:

Re: Problem Detected with Audio Clock
So the digirack 003 driver didn't work with the 002, but you gave me an idea. I have a focusrite scarlett 18i8 that I use for my other DAW. I tried it and it seems to be working for now.

Eventually I'll need the digirack 002 to start working (because it has 8 outputs and I occasionally mix 5.1) but for this project I'm just doing a 2 channel, so we should be good.

Re: Problem Detected with Audio Clock
If the suggestion in the other thread I linked to above is correct and the reason one of his Digi002's worked with Windows 10 and the other one didn't was due to firmware versions, you could try updating the firmware in your Digi002. But, as you probably know, if anything goes wrong during a firmware update, it will brick the 002.

Let us know if you ever do get it to work. You could always install Windows 7 if you can find a copy.

The 002 Rack works on Windows 10. Use the 003 drivers 9_0_8 for it. I test a lot of systems with it.

What I will say, I have had 2 002's die in the last year. They act like everything should be fine, it will just not lock up and FW will click as it tries to lock up to the system and the lock light on the rear will not light up.

Thanks for the info! I will give that a shot.
