Can the DCD-8 generate several WC frequencies simultaneously?
Yes. The DCD-8 includes two separate generators, A & B, capable of generating two different rates simultaneously (for ex. 44.1 & 48) locked to the same reference. A or B can be assigned to any output. In addition, outputs 7 & 8 feature a frequency multiplier: x2, x4, x64, x128, x256.
How can I see which frequency is sent to which output?
The DCD-8 front panel includes lots of indicators. The LCD display clearly indicates the A and the B frequencies; to the right of the LCD are LED’s indicating which of the 2 frequencies are assigned to each output. So there is no need to go through menus. It is always clearly visible on the front panel.
If I am distributing WC through the DCD-8, what happens if my WC source fails?
The DCD-8 can be programmed to switch automatically to an alternate source. If the alternate source was also to fail, or if no alternate source was set, the DCD-8 would switch automatically to internal crystal.
