Alright... Unfortunately, I was born into an era where mixing 'in the box' was commonplace, and mixing out of the box was for the old guys, or the young dudes with the odd vinyl collections... I understand how to mix using a combination of a DAW and a console, but what I'm unsure of is the signal chain for mixing with a lunchbox/rackmount set of Pre's, EQ's, and Compressors... Does someone care to enlighten me on this subject? Perhaps point me to existing threads, etc. So for recording, I've got the pre's, eq's, and comps in racks and boxes...Little to no basic EQ'ing is done going in, as well as compression. I'd like to bring the recorded mix from the 'box' back out to these pre's, EQ, and compressors for mixing levels, eq, and compression, then back into the box again as individual channels... I know about passive summing boxes for a final master mix, but for the individual mixes, I'm stumped. Thanks!
