summing

Trying to make my DAW my consle and process the summing though my allen and heath analog mixer.

I recently read this thread this guy is explaining how he uses his daw as a console and his analog mixer for summing:

Sound card to summing mixer mixup????

Hey guys,

my friend has an 8x8 soundcard (8 ins / 8 outs) apogee symphony.

I plan to buy a NEV-8816 summing mixer.

The summing mixer has more 8 more inputs than the soundcard.

Is it possible to use all 16 channels when doing analog processing even if my friends sound card only has 8 inputs ins/outs?

Or would i have to upgrade the symphony to 16 in/out to use up all channel on the summing mixer?

A&H Zed 14 for summing mixer.

Hey all,

After tons of planning and meetings I've got my new setup pretty well defined both for the immediate and long term.

I'm interested in an economical way to experiment w summing. The setup will be RME babyface pro for main tracking/monitoring adda, and capture ad, and the focusrite Scarlett 18i20 as the multi channel playback to feed the summing mixer , and any sort of surround speakers.

ITB vs. passive summing OTB

pluses and minuses?

i pretty much get what's good about itb, .... but what are the drawbacks of passive summing networks ... ? why is passive summing not a good thing?

and while i'm asking, when doing itb are you printing back into the same machine or are you doing a d/a - a/d to another recorder. if it's the second choice then what are you recording to? CDR? a second daw? how about a hi def stand alone thingie?

Analog Summing Boxes ?

There's obviously a lot to talk about I don't have one currently I've used the inward connections and what I found was the same mix had more dimension and what seemed to be fatter tracks

Is it the box itself ?

Is it the fact that there all summed together ?

What I heard and I'm not sure if someone can shed some light on this that a computer can't decide what to mix first second etc so by summing your controlling the flow of how it's mixed
