I wonder if someone in the team would be able to let us know whether or not this will be possible one day.
Is it simply a matter of coding or is there a hardware impediment that prevents this possibility?
Optional reading ~ My reason for needing to know:
I've a long-term lay-buy for a MOTU AVB system that's near the point at which I'll be expected to make the purchase. Just last week I realised that one of the interfaces (the 16A) could be changed (I'd be sacrificing a number of analogue inputs, hence the question that follows' importance to me) for the 1248, which has RCA S/PDIF I/O with SRC. The 16A that I've had ordered all along doesn't have this and I'd decided long ago to just use its analogue I/O for recording and reamping. The SRC in the 1248 would allow me to record the Kemper's S/PDIF output 'though without having to slave the AVB system to it, which would be wonderful, but there's a problem: In order to send a recorded DI track back to the KPA, I'd have to set the MOTU gear to slave to it 'cause the Kemper won't interpret an incoming clock signal. All well-and-good, but unfortunately there's no setting or ability of the MOTU to automatically revert back to internal clocking when I power the KPA down.
Someone here told me a month ago that most interfaces allow you to set, say, S/PDIF as the source, and then whenever it's absent, they'll automatically switch to "internal" and then back again any time the S/PDIF source becomes active again. Not so with the MOTU AVB system, unfortunately, and I don't want to have to mess with the web app before and after every time I choose to reamp, which with any luck will happen a lot.
If the KPA could slave to clock it'd be a case of "problem solved".
Thank you in advance for any insight shared; this is ultra-important to me 'cause returns and swaps won't be possible once I plunk down the dough, so to speak.
