4.2 Quick StartAfter connection of all cables and power-on of the device, the configuration of the ADI-8 QSbegins in the CLOCK section. Choose a clock source and a sample rate.Connect the TRS-jacks or the D-sub connector with the analog signal source. Change the inputsensitivity by pressing INPUT until the input level is sufficient to avoid noisy operation. Try toachieve an optimum input level by adjusting the source itself. Raise the source’s output leveluntil the red Over LED flashes at the loudest parts of the signal, then reduce the level a bit untilno more overs are detected.The analog line inputs of the ADI-8 QS can be accessed by using D-sub (for an optional XLRmulticore) and 1/4" TRS jacks. Both are internally connected, so not operational at the sametime. The electronic input stage is built in a servo balanced design which handles unbalanced(mono TS) and balanced (XLR, stereo TRS jacks) correctly, automatically adjusting the levelreference.When switched on for the first time the ADI-8 DS starts in a default mode which should be suitable for most applications: AD/DA conversion in master mode (CLOCK INTERNAL)Sample rate 48 kHzInput ADAT opticalLevel reference 19 dBuOn the DA-side just choose the desired digital input by pressing DIGITAL INPUT. A coarse correction of the analog output level can be done by pressing the OUTPUT button.The ADI-8 QS stores all current settings and automatically activates them when the device isturned on.User’s Guide ADI-8 QS RME9

User’s GuideADI-8 QSUsage and OperationUser’s Guide ADI-8 QS RME13

8. Front Panel Controls8.1 InputIn the INPUT area, the select key causes a change of the analog inputsensitivity, referenced to digital full scale level (0 dBFS) of the ADconverters. The choices are: 4.2 dBu (-10 dBV compatible), 13 dBu, 19 dBu and 24 dBu. As the adaptation is performed in the analog domain, the ADI-8 QS achieves the highest possible values for Signal toNoise ratio and distortion in any setting.After selecting DIG, the digital input signal is routed to the digital outputs, with the AD-conversionbeing deactivated. The level meters now show the level of the digital input signal.8.2 LimiterThe LIMITER is available as analog function (MODE ANA), digital function (MODE DIG), orcombined (both LEDs lit).Analog LimiterFor the ADI-8 QS, RME developed a new fully symmetrical circuit design withdigitally controlled release time. While the analog limiter is constantly within thesignal path, it operates fully transparent as long as there is no control signalgenerated, so does not cause noise or distortion. This special feature made itpossible to define a threshold of 3 dB in deactivated mode, preventing anoverload of more than 3 dB of the AD-converters. This avoids not only extremeoverload effects, but also prevents the AD-converters from being damaged.Both the fully symmetrical design and the digitally controlled release time contribute to the reduction of the unavoidable distortion of a peak limiter (linearity errors of the control elements, generation of the control voltage). The distortion value of about 0.3% stays the same at any leveland any frequency.Another exceptional feature is the ability to handle extremely high levels. At the level references 24 dBu, 19 dBu and 13 dBu up to 30 dBu can be fed, the signal is still limited correctly (-3dBFS), THD is still 0.3%. At the setting 4.2 dBu the maximum unclipped input level is 24 dBu.So there is more than 20 dB overload possible!Note: As with all such basic designs, increasing dynamic ratio and gain reduction causes audiblepumping effects.Digital LimiterThe digital limiter is a non linear compressor. The input signal is processed with a special amplitude function. The resulting third order harmonics are widely masked by the original signal.The digital limiter allows for additional headroom of up to 5 dB without audible clipping (clipping:brickwall limiting leading to high distortion). It also allows for an increase of the loudness withoutincreasing the maximum peak level, similar to the effect known as Maximizer. Unlike the analoglimiter there is no attack and release time and therefore no pumping effects.The strength of the limiter effect can be adjusted in the Setup menu in steps of 1.5, 3, 4 and 5dB, indicating the maximum level or loudness gain (chapter 9.14).14User’s Guide ADI-8 QS RME

8.3 Input StateThe 8 level meter of the INPUT STATE show the digital value (dBFS) of the input level perchannel. The level data incorporate Input Trim and Digital Limiter. The red LED OVR is lit 0.2 dBbefore full scale level (-0.2 dBFS).With activated METER GR AUTO the amount of Gain Reduction is shown in dB as bar from topto bottom, as soon as the Limiter becomes active. In case of overload a display is even performed when the Limiter has not been activated, because the Limiter is indeed always active,operating at a threshold of 3 dB.When the Setup menu is active, the according parameter values are displayed in this level meterwindow.8.4 MeterMETER PH provides a Peak Hold function for all level meters, eitherpermanently (ON) or switched off by Auto Reset (AR) after 3 seconds.In mode ON, a reset (erasing the current peak values) is issued by a single push of the PH button. The function itself is not changed.8.5 RemoteREMOTE defines the source of MIDI remote control commands. Choices are theMIDI DIN jack, AES1 and the MADI input of the I64 MADI Card (Option Slot).Note: Via MIDI remote control, all front panel controls can be locked (Lock Keys).An exception is the REMOTE key. In the Off state (no LED lit) Lock Keys isdeactivated. Therefore a locking of all the controls can be revoked directly at theunit at any time.8.6 Clock SectionThe source and frequency of the unit's clock is configured in the CLOCK SECTION. The buttonCLOCK lets you step through the options external clock (Word, ADAT, AES, Option MADI)and internal clock, and sets the sample rate for both an external and the internal clock.WCK, AES, OPTN (Slave Mode)Defines the corresponding input as clock reference. A missing or invalid clock source signal isindicated by flashing of the corresponding LED.INT (Master Mode)Activates the internal clock.With a setting of INT (internal clock) it is mandatory that the clock rate of the sources is synchronous to the ADI-8 QS. Therefore the external device has to be synchronized to the ADI8 QS word clock output or AES/ADAT/MADI output.The ADI-8 QS thus has to be master, all devices connected to it must be slave. In order to avoidclicks and drop outs due to faulty or missing synchronicity, a special process called SyncCheckcompares the incoming data and the ADI-8 QS internal clock. The SYNC state is indicated by aflashing (error) or turned off (OK) LED.User’s Guide ADI-8 QS RME15

44.1, 48Activates the internal clock at 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz.DS, QSWith the DS LED additionally lit, the sample rate will be 88.2 or 96 kHz, with QS lit it will be 176.4or 192 kHz.A selection of DS and QS is also possible when usingexternal clock (Slave). If the ADI-8 QS should operateat 192 kHz, but receives a synchronous word clock of48 kHz, the button STATE allows to activate DS or QSmode. This way, AD-conversion and digital outputs areconfigured to operate in the frequency ranges SingleSpeed, Double Speed or Quad Speed.Single SpeedAll outputs carry a signal in the range of 32 kHz up to 48 kHz.DS (Double Speed)The AES outputs 1-8 carry a signal in the range of 64 kHz up to 96 kHz. ADAT and MADI stay atno higher than 48 kHz, with the data transmitted in the S/MUX format.QS (Quad Speed)The AES outputs 1-8 carry a signal in the range of 176.4 kHz up to 192 kHz. ADAT and MADIstay at no higher than 48 kHz, with the data transmitted in the S/MUX4 format. Therefore ADATis limited to 4 channels (2 per optical output) in this mode.8.7 Digital InputThe key DIGITAL INPUT defines the signal source of the DAconverters. This is also true for the mode Digital to Digital, where thechosen digital input signal is sent directly to the digital outputs.Each input has its own SYNC LED. If a valid input signal is applied,SyncCheck is active automatically. SyncCheck takes the chosen clock(internal, external, etc.) as reference and compares it with the inputclocks. Inputs which are not synchronous will be signalled by flashing ofthe corresponding SYNC LED.8.8 Output StateThe 8 level meter of the OUTPUT STATE show the digital input level per channel as digital value (dBFS). The display incorporates the settings of Global Output Level and Output Trim. Therefore overloads of the DA-converters will always be displayed.When the Setup menu is active, all available options are displayed in this level meter window.8.9 Set (Rotary Encoder)The rotary encoder is a highly intuitive multifunctional device. It is used to setthe trim values, the volume, and various options in the Setup menu.Pushing the knob SET activates the Setup menu. Within the Setup menu apush on SET changes between left and right window.16User’s Guide ADI-8 QS RME

8.10 OutputIn the OUTPUT area, the select key causes a change of the analog outputlevel, referenced to digital full scale level (0 dBFS) of the DA-converters.The choices are: 4.2 dBu (-10 dBV compatible), 13 dBu, 19 dBu and 24 dBu. As the adaptation is performed in the analog domain, the ADI-8QS achieves the highest possible values for Signal to Noise ratio and distortion ratio in any setting.9. The Setup MenuSome options and settings are seldom accessed and changed. These have been collected inthe Setup menu. The Setup menu is entered by pushing the rotary encoder (SET) in both levelmeter windows. The right window shows all the options, the left window is used to configurethem. In the currently active window all red LEDs are lit, similar to a cursor function.The setup procedure is run as follows: Push SET one time. The level display vanishes, the cursor marks the right window. Turn SET left or right until the desired option shows up, for example Digital to Digital, shownas the letters d d. Push SET one time. The cursor jumps to the left window. Turn SET left or right until the desired parameter value shows up. In this example, d d can beactivated (check symbol) or deactivated (no check symbol). Push SET one time to return to the options in the right window, or simply wait for 6 seconds.The last setting stays valid, the setup menu is left, and the

When switched on for the first time the ADI-8 DS starts in a default mode which should be suita-ble for most applications: AD/DA conversion in master mode (CLOCK INTERNAL) Sample rate 48 kHz Input ADAT optical Level reference 19 dBu On the DA-side just choose the desir
