In the Digital Lab you could find two kind of sound playing system: 『Stereo Sound System』and 『Multi-Channels Sound System』. In this case, I will introduce how to set up and playing your sound with Stereo sound system and some about trouble-shooting.
There are totally four workstations in Digital Lab, and the right most one is used for dealing with sound playback. Location is shown below:
- Enigma (Mac-Pro on the left side of the right table)
- Power supplier for 8 Surround-Speakers
- Power supplier for 2 Stereo Speakers and 2 Bass-Speakers
- 8 ... Speakers
- 2 ... Speakers - 2 ... Bass-Speakers
Step 1- Connect the 3.5 phone jack wire(already connected with workstation) to your sound player
Step 2- Turn on 『Power supplier for multiple speakers』
The power supplier is located behind the right sight of video wall.
Step 3- Turn on 『RME Fireface UFX, FireFace 800 Audio Interface and the right side MacPro 』.
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.
Step 4- Setting up on RME Fireface UFX (For those who only want to play stereo sound, they don’t need to download the drivers and control panel. In the other word, you will need to install them if you want to play multiple sound tracks.)
Example of control panel: TotalMix(For signal manage and post-mix. Stereo playing is Channel 1/2)
- There are there main playback modes:
- You could press the Volume knob to switch between the above three modes, and spin it to adjust the volume as you wish.
Situation 1: You've already plug in sound cable but nothing happened?
Situation 2: All are truned on but still no sound?
