    I having a tough time figuring out the Aux Ins on the Omni:

    The manual says," Aux to Line In switches are only providewd for Aux Ins 1 and 2. Aux Ins 3 and 4 cannot be routed to the Omni Line Ins in this Fashion". Is there another way to route it??? When they say "fasion" it seems that there could be another way.
    So can I get aux Ins 3&4 into Cubase SX???

    Thanks

    PS. Yes Opus, I'm back!!!

    Here's exactly what the manual says:

    "Remember that the Aux Ins are stereo inputs. They carry the left and right
    signals from a stereo device (such as your MIDI sound modules). Therefore, Aux
    In 1 feeds Line Ins 1 & 2 of the Omni (left and right respectively), which in turn
    feed the Delta H/W Ins 1 & 2. Aux In 2 feeds Line Ins 3 & 4 of the Omni (left and
    right respectively), which in turn feed the Delta H/W Ins 3 & 4.
    Also, since the Omni mixer channels for the Aux Ins gives a boost in level, you
    will experience a drop in listening level when you engage the “To Ins 1, 2”
    switch. What is important at this point is to establish an optimal level for
    recording the MIDI tracks, and then to set the playback levels once the track is
    recorded.
    NOTE: “Aux to Line In” switches are only provided for Aux Ins 1 & 2.
    Aux Ins 3 & 4 can not be routed to the Omni Line Ins in this fashion."


    Am I screwed???

    Yup. (in a nutshell)

    Aux in 1 is a stereo input, when you push the button in, it gets routed to (DAW) inputs 1 and 2, which kills the preamps on the front of the Omni.

    Aux 2, same concept, except it goes to (DAW) inputs 3 and 4.

    Aux 3 and Aux 4 go straight to the Monitors without going into the computer, and cannot be routed into the computer. They (soundcard manuf.'s that is) made this limitation into a feature, they call it zero latency monitoring!

    You would need to repatch Aux 3 and Aux 4 to be able to record them.
