Using Stereo Sound System

Hardware

Turn on equipment:

  • Audio work station (Enigma)
  • Audiointerfaces (RME Fireface UFX and 800)
  • Power supply (488 back room, next to the video wall)
  • Check if the USB cable connected (Work station to Fireface UFX)
p.s.Make sure following the ordering of first turn on power supplier then audio interface, but turn off audio interface at first then power supplier. If you break this rule, the electrical peak will harm the audio system. We believe that this definitely is a bad news for all users.

Software

For signal manage and post-mix. Stereo playing is Channel 1/2

Using Stereo Sound System from laptop

For those who only want to play stereo sound, they don’t need to download the drivers and control panel. In case if giving a try:

Trouble shooting

Situation 1: You've already plug in sound cable but nothing happened?

Answer:

  • Check if you have turned both power supplier for speaker system and sound workstation(Mac pro)on.
  • Check if you have already turned on the Fireface UFX and Fireface 800.

Situation 2: All are truned on but still no sound?

Answer:

  • Check the Mac Pro and go to RME setting application(within the deck of desktop)to see if the sound card is selected to "Fireface 800" correctly.
  • Open up the totalmix control panel, sending sound signal from your playing device, then check it there has signal in the stereo channal(Default is 1/2).
  • Check if you have already chose the "Main out" as output mode correctly, and of course, volume up until you could listen somthing.
