Word clock via USB

I'm trying to understand how sample clocking (word clock) via a USB connection would work. Where would the clock signal come from, and how would it be delivered and interpreted? My own setup is Linux based, but I'd be interested in hearing a detailed explanation for any platform. -- and please don't spare me the technical details.



  • All digital audio signals must contain a sample clock otherwise all you would hear is crackling. Where the sample clock originates depends on how you set up your system. It's usually your computer or audio interface.
