Anyone here with suggestions?
« on: May 15, 2014, 11:35:51 AM »



As you can see, I have an insert-fx after the mixer but I need to split the signal after, so I can hear the effect (if itīs not bypassed) on my monitors and also record it at the same time (soundcard). Definitely prefer to have the in/outputs as XLR for the "?" gear. Any suggestions concerning the "?" gear?

Greetings,
Tomas

what other I/Os do you have from soundcard/monitor controller ?
What sound card do you use ?

As you can see in this setup (itīs my smaller 2nd studio) there is no monitor controller…also, all the other I/Oīs of the sound card canībe used for other purposes (so i have only 2x Input left).

I think we need to know what you are using. Normally I would send sounds to the FX via an aux send, then have the FX come back in again on an aux return or on other channels to the mixer. I would then send the sound out to your speakers. Most decent mixers would give you a second option, like a tape send to send to a recorder. 
Take care.

The "Insert" is a "Edison EX1" as final effect in the chain, so i canīt use it as a send…It need to be chained between the main out of the mixer and the "?" as it should process all signals coming from the mixer out (if not bypassed). From there i have to hear it but also need the option to record it at the same time (!!!)

- Add a little mixer that has the outs you need.

- I've not looked at signal splitters, but they do exist.

- A patch bay.

if you just need more I/Os RME BOB-32 probably more transparent then adding an additional  mixer.

I want to avoid another mixer just for space reasons…also i canīt think about a very small model for my purpose (at least 2 individual output channels controlled by fader)

Iīve thought about a signal splitters too, but havenīt found anything so far.

Patch Bay? Wonīt work...of course you can route a signal from x to y, but i need to split the stereo signal, going into 2 other devices.

sounds like an XLR snake cable could be a solution ?

there you go..there exist cheaper alternatives. Klotz is good for its price usually here in EU.

This cable have in and outs which is very good in general for doing different signal chains in the studio..

Tomas:  A patch bay in parallel or half-normalled setting does split the signal into two or more.

I think youīve made my day! Just checked the specs of my patch bay and it seems like the half-normalled mode is doing what i need!

Will report as soon as iīve tested it!

Thanks for now!
