    One guitar output..to two lines, one through a droptune, the other normal..combined to one input

    If you choose a pedal that is meant to do harmonies, it would have a mix control built in. As it is, you should be able to use a y cable before the drop to split the signal, then an ABY switch after the drop to select just guitar, just drop or both.

    Stereo or double with virtual guitars

    Better is whatever works for you. If using the stereo knob does the job, you're good to go. If you want the sound of a dou led guitar part, you will need two performances. That means you need to play it twice and not quantize the midi. It will be the minor timing and dynamic variations that...

    When your DAW doesn't have an aux channel capability...

    Having been a cubase/nuendo user since the early 2000s, coming current would be just like starting over anyway. There were some major changes along the way. I get what you are saying and I did give the work around. I'm just grouchy because I've spent every day for the last two weeks being...

    When your DAW doesn't have an aux channel capability...

    I get it, and I'm not trying to be elitist, but the problem is directly related to the fact that he is using software that is old enough to graduate high school. The best answer to the problem is to update, especially now that there are so many low cost and free alternatives that have all the...

    When your DAW doesn't have an aux channel capability...

    Why are you using a 20 year old daw when you can just download reaper? Anyway, what you can do is set up an effects send on the channel. The effects buss that you have to set up is really the same thing as an aux buss. Assign the output of the effects buss to the same place that the original...

    Question about using an Ebow with electric guitar.

    There is nothing you can do that will hurt either the e-bow or the guitar. Try it with all the pickups and anywhere on the string you want. You will learn more about what it can do by just experimenting. You will not hurt anything.

    Studio Monitors

    If they sound good now, but didn't before, the room was your problem. Having speakers that can properly reproduce the sound you are sending it is essential to being able to mix something that will translate to other systems. Speakers that always sound great are lying to you. You need...

    External switching

    Mesa Boogie Midi matrix will control the amp switching through midi. (without having to mess with those external switching jacks) The Voodoo Lab PX-8 has a bunch of effects loops that can be turned on and off and configured by midi. Those two will do what you want to do however, you will need a...

    External switching

    Those are not inputs. They simply turn on and off different channels by shorting the tip and sleeve. For example, the FX jack only turns the effects loop on and off. To do what you want to do, you need something like a Bradshaw system. It will have a midi board and a bunch of effects loops...

    External switching

    The jacks allow (usually midi programmed) operation of your amps functions from an external switching source. Unless you have a big midi setup, you would ignore these and just use the footswitch.

    Clipping/peaking out

    I went from having a hardware based studio to a DAW based studio in baby steps, like you are suggesting. I would record to digital tape, then transfer to the DAW for editing, then mix on an analog console through my racks of outboard gear. I did this because I mistakenly thought there was...

    Clipping/peaking out

    A preamp is used to bring the mic level signal up to line level, which is higher. You were taking the mic level signal, raising it to line level, then plugging it into a mic input that was expecting the lower mic level signal. That's why you were clipping easily. The art, the t1 and the mic...

    Clipping/peaking out

    The gain control on the dp008ex is a mic preamp, as is the art and the t-1. Using the t1 with the dp should give you more than enough gain. At the level you are working at, the preamp won't make any useful difference. Even with thousand dollar preamps, the difference is still pretty subtle and...

    Clipping/peaking out

    Your main problem is you are essentially going through too many preamps. Take the ART preamp out of the chain, it's unnecessary or go in the 1/4 " line input and not the xlr mic input.

    Phase issue in mono

    This depends on how something was recorded and how you are listening in mono. Sometimes old mono devices were just the left channel, so anything that was panned right disappeared. There was a low wattage independent radio station that was set up like this, so every time they played early Van...

    Remote direction of session via Zoom

    Use a separate computer for the zoom call. Send an aux out of the board into the interface for the zoom computer to feed the performer to the director. The output of the zoom computer goes into a channel on the mixer that is only sent to the performers headphones and whatever you are listening...

    i got a TLM 103. what use do i have from my old Rode NTR?

    You could use the two mics together to get a stereo recording of those instruments. For example, on acoustic guitar, point one mic behind the bridge and the other mic at the 12th fret. Pan the two tracks wide. You could also look up MS recording, since the NTR has a figure 8 polar pattern...

    This snare sound

    That sounds like something I used to be able to get out of a 5" Ludwig Supraphonic. You are looking for a sample with loose snare wires and maybe a bit of ring. Tune it to the right note, then use eq to add the low end and the sizzle of the wires. If there is too much ring, eq that frequency...

    Phase issue in mono

    Hard panned is all the way one side and the other. On a knob, that would be 5 and 7. 3 and 9 is more like 60% each way.

    This snare sound

    Does superior drummer let you tune the samples? (Change the pitch) You could also try adding some 150-200hz and some 8k shelf and run that into a compressor to smooth it out.
