Can i use the 002 rack as a standalone mixer without pro tools running

Unlike some RME products, the 002 rack has no ability to run as a standalone mixer. All routing/mixing is controlled via the pro tools software.

DAE error -1115

You haven't stated your problem, aside from the error code. Please include the hardware setup, computer and Pro Tools version and plugins you are using. Also include your experience with the setup; was it working at some point? etc.

I run PC and Mac versions of this system, and I have had to go as far as to enter the computer CMOS setup to sort out problems. Pro Tools issues can be caused by many aspects of your hardware and software setup.

I know it can be tedious and time consuming, but have you tried to access the Avid (Digidesign) site's Q & A locations? You may have to do this if the solution to your problem is not immediately apparent.

Most of all, if you are not running properly registered software, with a user account on Avid, you are asking for problems here. Cracked versions of the program and plugins can cause unresolve-able problems.

Try these Pro Tools related sites to see if they offer some help. RE: error code 1115

Hi i have digi design rack 002 with pro tools le

Try the other port on the 002. If that doesnt work, I recommend trying the 002 on a computer that does have 400 to see if it will connect then.

If it doesnt, then you may have a couple blown firewire chips inside your 002. It happens, and can be fixed.

Digi 002 rack firewire

Hey -

Unplugging the harness and reconnecting only worked for a couple days. It turned out that I had to call digidesign and they sent me a new power harness for free. That fixed it for me.

Installing Pro tools LE 6.7 on G5

If this was already solved, well, this will help someone else. My guess is your new G5 came with 10.4 or 10.5 and you possibly tried to install LE 6.7 or earlier. This will not work on these OSs. If you have 6.7 you can upgrade to LE 6.9.1 for free and this will solve you problem. If you have LE 6.4 you are screwed and will have fork over $75 to Digidesign to upgrade to 6.9.1...or upgrade to 7.4, which is actually kind of worth it.

Unable to locate the unit on my G5

It's the power supply / DC Harness issue. A well known fault with the Digi 002.

Two things you can do:

Call Digidesign. They'll overnight you a new power supply and DC wiring harness free of charge, as well as installation instructions. They might also still be willing to do the repair for you (also free of charge), but that means you'll have to ship the unit to them, which will take considerably longer than the DIY approach.

Or, if you're REALLY stuck and you need to get back up and running RIGHT NOW (okay, within 30 minutes or so), you can disassemble the 002, pull the DC harness and clean the contacts with some Caig DeOxit, then apply a bit of ProGold, then put it back together... chances are that will clear up your problems and allow you to finish the session. :)

There are some good instructions on how to open up the 002 and what to treat over on the Digidesign User's Conference ( , but I can't locate them at the moment. But if you ask over there, I'm sure someone can refer you to the correct post. :)

I got one of the very first 002's in N America three years ago... and it worked fine for the first couple of months, then had the wiring harness issue... and Digidesign replaced it (via overnight delivery) and paid for the return of the defective unit. About a week ago, it went out again, This time, I got the replacement parts (including a small amount of the Caig chemicals :thu: - although I already had those on hand) overnighted to me. The install isn't all that difficult, but the placement of some of the locking tabs on the connectors is a bit difficult to deal with. Just go slow and don't force anything... a small screwdriver will help in "unlocking" some of those tabs. :)
