I have a small home-studio that shares space with our bands practice space. When we practice, we are plugged into the mixer for the PA. When we want to record, we have to take time to unplug from the mixer and plug in to the pre-amps in the studio (Seventh Circle, ART Digital MPA). My question is this: Is it possible to make a split cable to plug into the output of the pre-amps, then run one output into the recording console and one output into the PA mixer? Would this have any negative effect on sound quality for recording? (it is a cheap Alesis 12R mixer...) Could it damage equipment? Are there any other issues with doing this? I'm pretty sure I know how to actually make the split cable (handy with a sodering iron), but I just wanted to ask if this idea is electronically and sonically sound.
