    Hi guys, hope you can help me with this one. I am posting this same psot on different forums so bare with me.

    I just bought an Apogee AD-16X from and Im planning on buying the Mini DAC so I can monitor with a high quality DA. My question...Is it possible to run a recorded track into and external (outboard) compressor or EQ using this setup or would need something else ?? How would I monitor thru this ??

    Let say I recorded a clean, un proceesed bass track into my DAW using my preamp into my AD-16X. Can I then use the digital outs on the AD-16X into the Mini DAC and then run the analog out into the outboard equipment, and then the outputs of the analog equipment into my monitoring system ?? Doews this make any sense ?? Please help in any way that you guys can and thanks alot!!
