Plans to allow Helix floor unit to act as Word Clock slave?Are there any current plans to introduce the ability to set the Helix floor processor as a word clock slave? I currently use only the SPDIF connections to attach to an audio interface (and would like to keep it that way), but have to set the interface clock as the slave when recording with the Helix else it won't stay in sync. This means I'm having to constantly change my audio interface's clock when I'm not using the Helix. I believe the rack unit has this capability already, but I far prefer the portability of the floor unit and would rather not switch, if possible.
Helix USB VS Audio Interface (Output/Input Routing)Hey Everyone, So I have a workflow/signal chain question for you all. To start, here's my setup AI: Apogee Quartet Speakers: Yamaha HS8's with Sub DAW: Logic Pro X My question to you, is how should I go about routing? For recording, Should I go directly from the Helix into my DAW via USB, or should I go XLRs out of my Helix, into my Apogee Quartet, and Apogee Quartet into my DAW via USB? Then for standard practicing, should I do one of the above, or go directly from my Helix into my Yamaha HS8s via XLR or 1/4 inch? The problem with using my Helix via USB is that I have multiple microphones going into my Quartet, and having to switch active audio interfaces back and fourth while recording is a hassle. I suppose I could always use Apple's "Aggregate Audio Device" function, but am not confident in its usability. I'd love to figure out a way to make this work as I'd like to be able to use Helix's ramping function. Also, in everything that I've mentioned, do you see a need for me to be using a word clock cable? Thanks,
