    Manuals rock!

    Yes, they can be used as direct outs.

    If you have a Direct Out on the channels, why would you be wanting to use the Insert connector in the first place? Typically, the Direct Out has a bit more output level than an Insert...

    Moon, the Eurodesk in question does not have direct outs.

    Sorry, my bad. I misunderstood his/her 2nd statement. You know what happens when we "assume" :)

    James:

    The insert is pre-eq and fader, direct fed from the pre-amp.
    The quality is directly dependent on the board's pre, which, in the Eurodesk's case, isn't very good to begin with.
    Mackie's CFX is better, but still far from high quality.

    As far as signal interruption when utilizing the insert as a direct - if you use the correct cable there will not be an interruption (I believe you want to use a tip-sleeve 1/4" on the recorder's inputs and a trs on the board with tip and ring soldered together. If I remember correctly from the days I used to have a Mackie, I think you can get away with just plugging the 1/4" tip-sleeve half way in to the first click in the insert jack on the board).

    Edit> More info on using these boards to record:
    If you are going to record kick and snare, buy some in line switchable pads. I remember my old Mackie 24x4 would clip on those channels, with the gain all the way down.
    If you get a Eurodesk, treat it with the utmost care. The pots are not sturdy, they are not screwed into the chassis, it's real easy to break them and push them into the board underneath.

    Thx for reply. I have tried to read the manual of cfx.it said the insert can direct out with signal interruption with a mono plug when hearing the second click. Is is good if i using CFX to connect M-audio delta 1010? Will it better than i using Korg d1600 mkII to record? i am trying to record by the computer now
    and i want to find a more input channel PCI interface. except MOTU, any other suggestions?
    thanks
