Hi! I just got a new Hardware compressor and I have couple questions on how to get it into the External FX Send & Return. I have a Presonus Firepod and they say in the manual that I have to connect the Preamp Output jack, balanced or unbalanced to the input of the external processor. Then connect the FirePod’s Line Input jack to the output of the external processor but is there anyway to have External FX without using my firepod preamp inputs cause I find it a bit useless to have my preamps connected with the inserts FX and always have to unplug when I want to record. Is a patchbay is want I need? Thanks for your help!
