Just was wondering if anyone could help out. I'm putting together a gigastudio rig and wanted to use a rme adat card to connect with my 896hd using the optical port. If I have the 869hd as the master to the rme card is the sync in optical good enough? (setting the rme as a slave) Or do I need to sync them using word clock? The pc/giga rig will just be there to play samples and maybe process some tracks in real time, not using it a daw.

Thanks in advance,
