outboard efx to protools connection help please?

I've got a t.c. electronics M350 i used before i started working in a software DAW. Problem is when i tried hooking it up with protools i noticed an audible delay in each effect.

How do u hook this thing up with the least amount of delay issues?


I haven't tried in a while but i think my original setup was the stereo outs of the M350 went into my Motu 828mkii and i used the ADAT into my 003. Is the conversion from protools to the 828mkii to the analog outs on the M350 and all the way back into protools causing it. I'm not completely sure but i think i even tried spdif between the 828mkii and the M350 and got similar results. I got frustrated and gave up. So i never tried hooking up the spdif straight to 003 (mainly because i need the extra inputs from adat for my instruments).

Is there a work around or did i hook something up wrong?

It does sound like theres anything wrong with you setup and latency is inherit with any digital recording. I would say the easiest thing is to just offset the audio from the m350 after you record it back in, just so its in time. Isn't pro tools great heh

That's not happening anytime soon! Definitely not at the pro level yet, spending that type of cash ain't an option

Then you should reconsider your use of Pro Tools. It's just not gonna do what you want it to do, at your level.
