adc~ also for digital input?


    May 18 2006 | 9:18 am
    I'm a bit new to Max/MSP. I want to use the spdif input from my MOTU 828 but the only audio input object I know is adc~ that stands for "analog to digital converter", right?
    So my question is if I need to use adc~ with a spdif input even when no analog to digital conversion is actually needed. Is there any other object to handle digital signal inputs?
    Thanks

      Right, but it's just a historical name. [adc~] can feed audio from any of the 828's inputs, be they analogue line, mic, S/PDIF or lightpipe. Similarly, [dac~] can address any of the outputs.
      Look at the DSP Status window - you'll see a twenty or so ins and outs for your device.
