I'm using a TC Electronic Impact Twin with ADAT out. I have the Live template provided by Expert Sleepers, and I've also followed the VST tutorial closely and reproduced the template in Live. Still no results. I'm running Mac OS X (10.6.7) on a recent MacBook Pro with Ableton 8.1.4.
I haven't used ADAT before. I'm pretty sure I have the right cable (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004LT2C5W (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004LT2C5W)). However, none of the LEDs on the ES-3 illuminate when I send signals - they only illuminate when I turn the ES-3 on/off by plugging in the Euro PSU (so at least I know the ES-3 is getting power).
For troubleshooting purposes, I tried sending arbitrary audio signals to the ES-3 to see if the LEDs illuminate. I set up a loop in Live, and cycled through all available outputs, but the ES-3 never seems to be getting a signal. I'm not sure if this is a valid way to test things out, but since SW works on audio signals I thought it was worth a try.
All of the possible outputs from the Impact Twin are enabled. See http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/9346/tccp.png (http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/9346/tccp.png) - channels 7-8 in Live are channels 1-2 in ADAT. As I mentioned, I cycled through all available outputs and never see any signals on the ES-3.
Before I get into potential issues with my Live settings or the Silent Way plugins, I want to make sure my system is actually sending audio signals to the ES-3 and that the ES-3 is working properly. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
