Default Digi002: Optical I/O Question

Hey everyone,

I'm a new user to Digidesign products, and I have a question. Before using Pro Tools, I used (and still continue to use) Cubase SX3, with a Layla 24/96 Soundcard. This is where my question comes in... The Digi002 (rack) supports up to 8 Ins of ADAT Optical; can I link the Digi002 with my Layla 24/96 using Optical cables? If not, what exactly are the optical Ins for, and how can I use them? Thanks a lot!

The Layla MIGHT work IF it can operate without being hooked up to a computer or otherwise, you would need to open some program to control the Layla(PT won't see it). The extra software running to make the layla work, might drag your cpu down to a point where it hurts(try it and let us know). Assuming you can get signal to pass thru the Layla, it might work. In any case, I doubt you could hurt anything so give it a shot. The lightpipe in is a perfect place to patch in any of several 8 channel mic pre's(Presonus Digimax, Focusrite Octopre, M-audio Octane, etc.) which would give you 16 working inputs. If you do patch anything in there, you need to set PT to SYnc to ADAT or you will get clicks and pops. Also remember the DIGI lightpipe only handles 44.1 and 48K so you can't run 96K into it. Most of us LE users are perfectly happy with 44.1 and 48 anyway.
