This is my habit when mixing ITB (from years of mixing on my 32x8 Mackie):
I assign sub groups in Cubase, 4 stereo ie: Drums, Vocals, Guitar, Bass.
I've heard alot of talk about ITB summing being horrible. I have a Firepod that can now output 8 channels from Cubase w/new drivers.
My questions are: what would you do? Stay with the automation and extreme control?
Should I send my subs from Cubase to the subs on the Mackie and LR out to (options: old DAT, back into Firepod to stereo track in same project in Cubase, if I can even do that?)
Sorry if this sounds dis-jointed, I'm thinking on the fly right now. Oh, another LR out of the Mack could go into my HD24XR.
After a year of recording my band, it's down to the final stage. I have crappy monitors, a bad mixing environment, anyway.....
