I have the "advanced" driver installed, but I've still switched the ADV to "off" and recorded 16bit a few times without problems on an XP machine.

The ADV on/off controlls the a/d converter, so if you have it set to "on", it will send 24bit to all digital outputs.  This means if you have a digi-mod UA5, you'll be sending 24bit to the USB, coax & optical.  I'm not sure what it means if you have a stock UA5 - I would think any software monitoring would be at the same bitrate you are recording at.  If you connect a 16bit device (JB3, MD, DAT) to the 24bit output, they will truncate to 16bit.  I've done this with a DAT as a safety net in case my USB recording to the laptop had issues.

  Thank you for explaining that. +T

I might be too late to chime in on this , BUT, once you gat a moded UA5 warm or presence, all the out puts are active. So if your running coax out, Toslink and RCA are ACTIVE. Atleast they are on mine. I have had Coax, Tos, and RCA's all going at once.....Not to sure about the digi mod though. Hope this helps...


peace, jess

not to bring up old shit... :o  but if I am NOT using a laptop, and only using a JB3, i should turn the ADV switch to off?  so it is only sending 16 bit to my jb3?  I am so confused here...I thought the switch ONLY affected the input, not the out.  

if i am recording to BOTH the laptop(via usb) and the JB3(via optical), and the adv switch is on, i am recording 24 bit on laptop, the JB3 is truncating to 16 bit?

Correct.  (It's the coax/optical switch which only effects input.)

if i am recording to BOTH the laptop(via usb) and the JB3(via optical), and the adv switch is on, i am recording 24 bit on laptop, the JB3 is truncating to 16 bit?

Correct.

This would only work if you digi-modded your UA5.
