So I've got a few home studio questions. I just learned about this device called "a snake" (I'm a newb, so what). It sounds like an incredible device and I found one on ebay for $30: http://cgi.ebay.com/12x4-25ft-ProCo-Roadmaster-Fan-Box-snake_W0QQitemZ220171316298QQihZ012QQcategoryZ41461QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem Now about the device. If I understand, that has 12 xlr sends and 4 returns. Here's what I'm thinking. 12 sends to the 8 firepod inputs. I don't have a need for the last 6, but if I ever get another chainable firepod I'll have the inputs already to go. This part would just make my life easier not needing to run up and down the stairs. Then the 4 returns. Presonus just came out with a new device, the HP60. Its a headphone mixer that allows for upto 6 personally customizable mixes from 3 inputs, like click, instrument your playing and control room room mix. http://cgi.ebay.com/PRESONUS-HP60-HP-60-HEADPHONE-AMPLIFIER-NEW_W0QQitemZ220168095721QQihZ012QQcategoryZ41477QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem I'm thinking if things can be wired right then those returns on the snake could serve as the headphone returns. I'm not sure if this would be able to work out, but it sounds theoretically possible. Maybe I'm misunderstanding things, I just wanted to get a second opinion on all this. Any advice?
