Hi everyone, and Happy 4th. I have a Mackie 1604 I use as a monitoring setup, and a glorified patchbay with my Digi003 & Presonus Digi FS, since latency is introduced I have the players through the Mackie for monitoring, and I also will route recorded tracks back to the Mackie for external effects and a tube Pre Amp. I can record at 32 samples latency without the Mackie, which is fine and just eliminate the Mackie and use a patch bay for routing. It doesn't seem to introduce noise since I have all the trim knobs to the left, but it just seems practical for a routing mixer too me. Should I take the Mackie out of the chain and get a patchbay instead?
