a note on combining multiple echo 24bit devices
Esync cables come with Gina24, and can be used to daisy chain several 24-bit Echo cards together. Esync is a
proprietary form of super clock that allows you to sync together multiple 24-bit
Echo products. Simply attach the Esync cable to the two-prong “Esync Out”
connector on the Layla24/Mona/Gina24 PCI card, and attach the other end to
the “Esync In” connector on your Gina24 PCI card.
