Sorry, that was sloppy writing on my part, I meant sample accurate sync,
not "Word Clock", though its important to distinguish between sync-able
spdif ports (as in the Hammerfall and korg1212) and non syncable (as in
the SB Live/Extigy etc.). Of course, only one of your cards has to be able
to sync to spdif.
I've heard reports of problems using SPDIF or ADAT as a sync sounce, but
I've never experienced them myself.
