I have made gmjhowe a moderator of the chat room. He has agreed to act very professionally, and to remind people of the be nice policy, if necessary. Please return the favor by keeping the dialog constructive, productive, and pleasant.

Thanks!

Dear 'instructables' people,


I need a specific device for my audio recording project. I can not find it in the market place as my device (LEXICON MX400) is about 8 years old... so becoming unsupported in the HIDef audiofile arena.

What do I want? I want an S/Pdif to USB interface specifically : two s/pdif in & two s/pdif out going through a converter to a USB high-speed input on my laptop.

I can find numerous examples of 'USB to s/pdif'... ergo USB (out of a computer) to single S/Pdif ins (hi def audio systems)... but I need to go the other way around: from my hi quality mixing device (the Lexicon MX400) using it's s/pdif outs (2 of for quadraphonic sound) through a converter (of hi quality with low jitter) to a hi speed USB (usb2 or 3) input of a laptop.

I have found I can buy external sound cards like the 'old' MBOX (with it's s/pdif in & outs) that would suffice, but these are only SINGLE s/pdif ins & outs meaning I can only make stereo recordings & can not utilise the full power of my unit to make full quadrophonic recordings; which is what I want to do... get all Pink Floyd about my sound.

Any help will be graciously enjoyed. Thank you for reading my note. Regards D.O.

Hello Danny,

You'll probably get more viewers and maybe even good responses if you start your own topic. Good luck!

I believe the IRC channel have blocked the Mibbit web client because too many spammers were using it, or something like that. I found an alternative web client a while back but that also got blocked (for "racism"). I suspect the web client channels the traffic to the IRC channel through a particular IP or IP range, which was blocked for someone being racist on it so now the whole web client doesn't work. The easiest solution is to install a client on your computer, like mIRC or Pidgin or something.

tried to get to the chatroom through mirc but kept getting diconnected. Said a software disconnect but I've been on two other servers tonight with no problems. Does the channel not like mirc either. I think it was attempting to join through port 7000. Could that be the problem? Mirc listed the freenode server in its server list

It's a bug which needs to be fixed. Try http://webchat.freenode.net as a web workaround.

After a bit of research, I found out that Freenode closed connections to Mibbit due to abuse. The alternate URL is timing out as well, so that makes the IRC useless.
