I am considering moving up from my average preamps to some more professionally acceptible models (starting with Solo 610 maybe). The problem is All of the good preamps I am looking at only have 1 xlr out per channel. How do I hook this up so that I can send a signal to my monitor mixer and to the recording interface at the same time? You kind of need to hear what you are doing, don't you? I was considering using a mic splitter, but have serious reservations as to what this would do to the sound. I know you can monitor through Protools (I am using 002) But even the shortest delay is still annoying. I have been accustomed to using the Twintrack pro (biggest disappointment in my recording career!) which has separate monitor sends. Please be nice even though I know this question is exposing me as a complete rank amatuer!
