Hi everyone, soon i will have to connect my Organelle M to a pair of speakers that only has optical/Toslink and ethernet/RJ45 inputs : one of each on both units.
i admit this is a first to me (i’m a bit lost), this would be for live performances so i’m looking for minimum latency., also i don’t want to buy a complete audio interface as i just need to use either 2 Toslink or RJ45 digital outputs
thanks because i would prefer not to add DA+AD conversions to the signal (since the Organelle is digital and can work with external soundcards), also because that would add latency… (i don’t know how much but i guess a little bit)
i bought the first box i linked in the first post (i didn’t try it on the Organelle but it should work after editing the Pure Data audio preferences) and i can say it’s pretty good, made of metal (or something like), feels like it’s solid (i tried 44.1 and 48khz only) ; the second one is not so good (surprisingly, as it’s the same brand), made of plastic, feels very cheap… (also, the second one isn’t usually required for running a pair of speakers, i connect the TosLink source to one speaker then i connect the speakers together using RJ45, so the second box is only useful for connecting 2 different pairs of speakers)
the way to do this is to get a usb class compliant audio interface that has digital outputs.
Ive previously posted how to use alternative audio interfaces with the Organelle, see below (applicable to both 1 & M) - Ive used this quite a lot to interface with eurorack via an Expert System ES-8, and also occasionally to record digitally to a Zoom H5.
note: as my post mentions, this will likely increase latency slightly - because of the usb overhead. … but its still very useable.
