I record my Midi performances on my Yamaha Motif ES into a Sweetwater Creation Station DAW. I record with Sonar using an Edirol FA-66 soundcard (audio interface), and running Receptor with the Komplete libraries (which utilize Kontakt as a plug-in soft synth within Sonar). I'm lucky enough to have an Avalon Equalizer, an Avalon compressor and four Avalon preamps, but I need help in wiring these into my studio. I had a tech-wise friend wire my studio 4 years ago, but have since moved and changed PC's, and keyboard and Midi setup, now thqt Firewire rids me of all the wires I used to have. But I can't remember how he wired the EQ, compressor and preamps which improved my sounds so nicely. The Avalon equipment is real clear and fairly easy to adjust. I don't want to get into software, especially when I have such nice gear just sitting here. Please, HELP. Where in the signal path should these cool pieces be placed and how do I cable up?
