DR680 digital input and channel assignment questions
« on: June 21, 2022, 04:06:03 PM »

I have a Tascam DR680 that I've been using mostly for it's digital input to transfer DATs from my Fostex D5. Works great.

I picked up a Warm Mod UA5 for really cheap with an eye towards using the SPDIF output to feed the MIX channel for a pair of mics and use the 1-6 inputs for direct outs from the SBD getting me a total of 8 channels on the same clock.

I'm kinda stuck about which menu settings can get me where I want to be - how do I set the SPDIF input to the mix channels so I can free up the other 6 inputs for analog in?

Make sure all the I/O for channels 1-6 are set to analog. Go into Menu then REC -> ST REC. Select DIN. Go into Function and select DIN MON. You have to do the DIN MON every time to get the DIN Lock message. Also, make sure the UA-5 is set to COAX in the back little switch. Won't work if it is set to optical. Also make sure the Stereo (Mix) channels are set to record.

Thanks this is what I was missing. Some of the control functions aren't named in such a way to make them easy to sort out.
