Any help would be much appreciated. I tried to follow the manual and use an external compressor (Alesis unit) with the INSERT input and a Y-cable as described on track 7/15. I don't have experience with this and after trying every which way, with a mic also running into the same 7/15 channel at the same time, without and so on, got nowhere. I ended up recording the vocal track minus the external compressor.
I'm now left with the question whether there is a way to run the recorded track (for example track 15) through the external compressor and dump the now-compressed track onto a new channel (for example track 7)?
Any advice would be much appreciated as I'm at a loss with this and right now the Alesis compressor unit is paper weight.
