I am using outboard mic pres, and I want to be able to split the signal so that one lead goes to the A/D and one to my console for monitoring. I have things wired through a half-normalled patch bay, and I can easily just split the signal that way, but I am concerned about the quality of the signal being degraded that way. I definitely want the best possible quality signal going to the A/D's, but also want to be able to monitor directly. Any suggestions or comments on the multing technique I describe? Thanks!
