BEWARE! Digital Moron Question!

Okay...I now have a bunch of digital stuff that needs to get all run together clockwise...I would like to use my soon-to-arrive Aardvard Aark24 as the master clock...but most of my digital toys don't have BNC connectors-only S/PDIF...

So the questions really are: 1) How do we sync everything using s/pdif, and; 2) How do I get audio converted to digital through the same s/pdif connections...

FWIW: I have 2 Aardvarks...the 24 and a 24/96, both with s/pdif I/O...also thrown in there are a couple of processors (TC M300, et al)

Thanks in advance for any good/bad/indiffernt news...

Lucid has a clock box that has all SPDIF outs for clocking schemes such as that.....
I forget the box names but they came out with 4 small clock boxes that have different options and functionality to them..I think they go for a bout 700 a pop

list your digital gear, how it is connected and we will try to tell you the answer.

WC can travel down SPDIF & AES - with the audio.....

thats the key here I imagine

lessee here...listing only the digital stuff...

Interfaces: Aardvark Aark24 (spdif, ADAT, TOSlink, BNC WC)
Aardvark 24/96 (spdif only)

Effects: TC M300
(Externals) Lexicon 150

Preamps: Focusrite Octopre (if this works out with digital I/O

All mixing is done in Samplitude, and I use the 2 external effects in aux busses very late in the process...

That's 4 confirmed and a definite maybe...future additions are along the lines of Sony CDR (33 I think); possibly a higher end Focusrite pre with digital out....

Guess this is the one and ONLY situation I've ever encounter in which sheer brute force nor duct tape could not resolve the issue...guess that's why I never had kids of my own...
