I'm very happy with what I have going but over the weekend I was searching around for ideas on how users might utilize the Direct Outs of a MixDream to further expand its abilities.
I got wondering if I could add a Folcrom to the Direct Outs, do some mojo there with a nice pre and return back to either the MD or (AD) to a new 2 track to the DAW > then DA back to the MixDream like usual.
I'm also thinking a small tape machine for summing a group of drums would be cool trick but I do loose the simplicity and I am not to keen on multiple ADDA. .
I have no idea what I'm getting at other than shooting for some idea's I've not thought about before.
MixDream Direct Outs ( no mix toggle) > Folcrom mojo > back to the MixDream ??
Here's the skinny on the no mix option:
Each channel insert toggle switch has three positions: Off (no insert), On (insert path active) and No Mix, where the channel is lifted from the stereo summing bus and routed to its own direct out. In addition to muting that channel to the mix, No Mix allows for routing channel audio to a processor and back into your DAW for re-recording/mixing. The No Mix position is also good for routing click tracks, SMPTE and production sound (such as dialog) to separate destinations. When fully integrated into your studio's patchbay, MixDream acts as a clean DAW analog buffer amp and I/O router, saving time and patching when specialized session needs arise.
Any ideas or suggestions on what you might try?
