    I need a few answers.

    What are inserts for? Master inserts? Sub inserts? Insert what?

    Inserts typicaly send the signal present at the trimpot (First knob at the top of the chanel)out to a device of your choice...compressor, eq effects etc.

    NOTE: The whole signal will be routed through the insert jack, and the returning signal must also come back through it , or you will not have anything!

    Inserts use a (Stereo) Tip, ring, sleeve 1/4"
    jack.

    The inserts differ from the effects/aux sends in this way.... You can send a partial signal out these, while still having the original sound present at the faders, EQ and pan etc.

    Ask more specific questions, and tell us what you are trying to do....

    Sincerely;

    Dom Franco

    That can either be a good or bad thing.

    You're telling me. I just finished doing a balance rear-solder 432 point TT patchbay for my studio not too long ago. Not only that, I soldered on all my connectors myself. I had 100s of connectors and about 2k' of cable layed out in my living room for months. Talk about overwhelming. I got it done though.

    RE, I am in the middle of the very thing now, but with fewer patch points.

    What a pain!

    I know it will be worth it in the end.

    Greetings from the ignorant.

    I'm using my mixer as a preamp for multi-track computer recording, basically. The only adjustment I make is the trim for each channel - that's what sets the level. I do everything else in the software.

    Am I right in thinking that the other settings (High, Low, Pre, Post, Pan) are only necessary if:

    * you're recording to tape

    * or if you're using outboard effects?

    If it's really that simple, I will be a very happy person.
