Are there any limitations when connecting multiple Element interfaces?

  • Since Element Series interfaces have only one Thunderbolt port, the Mac to which interfaces are connected must have two Thunderbolt ports;

  • With multiple Elements interfaces, sample rate is limited to 96kHz and below;

  • ADAT I/O is not available, as it is used for inter-device clocking and bussing (see next point);

  • Both ADAT I/O must be interconnected between the two Element interfaces. This 1) provides a clock from the Master device to the second device 2) provides low latency mixer bussing, so analog inputs and outputs from both devices are accessible from all low latency mixers.
