Subject:J-station, 1010LT, and Acid 6

Can anybody help me?
I am using the spdif out on my J-station to record tracks into Acid. Every time I go to setup, the pitch of all my loops changes.
I have set the 1010lt software to sync up with the spdif and I have tried selecting different sampling rate (44.1, 48, etc.)

Should I just give up and go with analog ins, or can somebody work their voodoo magic and give me something to try?

Something doesn't know the correct sample rate.

What is that doesn't know is the problem. ACID assumes that the sample rate you tell it is the sample rate of the hardware, so it just sends everything to the hardware at this rate.

It sounds like you have it set up correct. However, it may be that the 1010 does not permit to be slaved to an external clock source and have ACID set its clock rate.

Are you using the ASIO drivers with the 1010? If so, you may want to switch to the Wave Classic drivers.

Does the J-Station permit you to set its sample rate or is it fixed?
What is the 1010 control pannel telling you the sample rate is?

The J-Station digital out is fixed at 48k.

If the J-Station's S/PDIF out is 48 KHz, then everything must be at that sample rate for an accurate digital transfer.

Set ACID and the 1010LT at that sample rate. Also be sure to slave the 1010LT to the J-Station via the "Hardware Settings" page under the Delta Control Panel. (You want, "S/PDIF In," under, "Master Clock.")

ON EDIT: Oh, and one more thing: Make sure you use a S/PDIF cable that's rated at 75 Ohms impedance. Otherwise, some funky things can happen. You can use a standard composite video cable (the ones with the yellow plugs) in a pinch if you have to as they're also rated at 75 Ohms.
