I am about to plug up my studio.
I got some great info about the inputs I have .
So step one is to run my instruments through a patchbay, normalled to mixer channels on my Yamaha 32/10.
I am hoping to use an 8 channel snake from the patchbay's outputs to the mixer's inputs.
Its getting complicated quick, because of the various outputs of my instruments. Here is the list.
I'm trying to put my surround and surround back speakers as well as surround and back surround speaker out's from a 7.1 amp on a TRS patchbay.
I have cheap speakers hard wired to the ceiling and I just got some real nice JBL movie theater speakers for the back surround.
Netflix is mostly 5.1 so I'd rather have my back surrounds wired to the surrounds but a lot of HD tv/blue ray is 7.1 so I'd like to have the JBL's as back surround still using the cheap speakers as surrounds.
I've purchased a 96 point TT patchbay. I've ordered a couple of the db25 sub cables. Before I get too far along, I'd sure appreciate any thoughts/additions/deletions anyone would be willing to add.
Thanks in advance.
WZ3 is the Allen & Heath 16:2 WZ3 that I am considering using for OTB summing (bad idea?)
My preamp is an old mesa boogie studio pre.
It has mono send and stereo return.
I tried connecting the send out to the top row (1) and the stereo returns on the bottom row ( 1 and 2 )
The connection is half normalled. When i patch the signal into an effect unit and return a stereo signal everything is fine. But if i only wanna use the preamp without any effects (just the normalized connection)
it will only be on the left input, obviously because input 2 isn't normalled to anything. I found out that removing
Ive been working on a layout for my first patchbay. Its gonna be a switchcraft or redco with dsub connectors.
Main interfaces is the Zed R16 mixer and the RME UFX. My "studio" is one room only, in my livingroom so its basically just me messing around playing, recording and mixing. Im sharing my layout here in case anyone wants to take a look at it and share some feedback. It would be nice to have other peoples opinion and advice as i have not much experience with patchbays.
I bought one and then bought another. These are excellent for controlling analog gear in a hybrid mixing system
I have three related questions for you.
I was uncertain whether ask for your help or not and eventually decided for this second option, I hope you'll help me focus on relevant facts.
The centre of my production system, with which i used to do soundtrack's songwriting and mixing with a friend/collegue of mine and other audio related
tasks, is based upon a personal computer (windows) and a Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 (8 analog inputs/10 analog outs; 16 ADAT i/o, w.c. i/o etc).
