Default Re: 96 i/o crackling and goes quiet??

I tried connecting the 96 i/o to the expansion port of the aurora 16. was told this should also work
For me it's not. the 96 i/o doesn't show up in the i/o page or the hardware.
before I replace the 96 i/o I really want to trouble shoot some more. Could someone verify if the 96 i/o should be recognized in this configuration?

Default 96 i/o crackling and goes quiet??

I was experiencing the same exact problem with my 96i/o +96i + sync i/o. 96i/o set as primary, 96i as expansion & loop sync master set to the 96i/o. In my case, I only experienced this only when I used my master dynamics controller & reverb rack gear routed through separate aux tracks. I seemed to fixing my issue by setting my channels I/O dB’s to -8dB as the interface run on 1.5v, routed master output through 96i/o through outputs 1-2 & set output levels to +4dB. Since I own a ProControl + fader pack, I routed my stereo mix outputs 1-2 through the ProControl inputs, rack gear through Pro Control sources inputs 3-4 & 5-6. My rackgear inputs are fed from corresponding 96i/o output channels & the now crackle is gone.. as a result, I now have minor latency on my PTHD3 rig.

Which leads me to this notion: crackling seem to be attributed to wrong dB levels, wrong signal routing & or the lack of optional control surfaces. I may be wrong but I seem to have corrected my issue as I have indicated above.

Try the 96 i/o on its own without the Aurora and see if the problem persists.

I would get round the back and re-do all the clock cables! try a new cable. or start with just the Aurora and the 96 with one clock cable from the Aurora to the 96. set the aurora to master clock and the 96 to internal.
