I know this has probably been addressed before, but I can't seem to find it...
I have an old BRC that I've never been able to use with the HD24 - didn't know there was a way to make them compatible.
Now I'm told there's some kind of chip update that will make it work.
Any info much appreciated!!

EMPLOYEE0If you are running the latest Alesis firmware, you should be all set.
There has not been updates in quite sometime as we are not supporting either hardware anymore.
When connected to a BRC, the input sync source is automatically selected so that the BRC is the master. Where one or more machines in a system is an ADAT tape machine, the tape machine should be made the master due to longer locate and lock times. Most of the BRC functions work normally, though the HD24 can provide both negative and positive track delays (±170mS) which the tape version obviously couldn't, so negative delays have to be dialed in from the HD24 front panel.
The BRC can't be used to set up pre- or post-roll times that fall outside the Song boundaries. It's also important to note that the BRC is designed to provide a 48kHz clock rate — it can just about manage 44.1kHz if you use the pitch control function, but it can't be used if you're working at the higher 88.2 or 96kHz sample rates.
