Greetings! I'm trying to figure out what would be the best setup for the following gear. . There's probably several different ways one could go about doing this, and I've started but have a few questions.. I'm kind of new to all of this but recently had the opportunity to design a small studio for a non-profit. If anyone could help with a diagram or some advice I'd really appreciate it.. In the mean time, I'll be reading all these manuals. TIA Here's a list of everything: Digi 002 rack Command 8 Music PC MPC 1000 Fantom Rack Motif Rack Motu midi time piece Avalon mic pre (vt737) two 48 point patchbays Triton studio Mackie monitors 2 mics 1 pod <sigh> ....Lol so I have a few questions 1. Should 1 patch bay (probably more like half of one patchbay) be used for anything with an out, and the other for anything with an in, and all the signals just be routed accordingly? 2. How can this be hooked up so that the Triton, synth racks and motu talk to each other, and have the ability to be controlled from the MPC, and then be tracked out from MPC to Pro Tools. 3. Do pods typically go directly to 002 or to the patchbay? 4. Finally, the 002 rack doesn't appear to have a standalone mode (or at least, it's not as visible as the regular 002), do how can I listen to the triton/racks and do sampling with the MPC without having to fire up the PC and Pro Tools every time?
