    Is it just me

    You can get the RE20 in black now, so maybe it'll come back in fashion :)

    Tonight, the Iozotope mastering assistance suggested no EQ changes

    What are you mastering? Looks like a fair amount of LF content. iZotope's assistant always puts a low shelf boost on my mixes, which I remove :). And, do you just let it "learn" over the entire track, or choose a couple different spots and see what it does? I like the Dynamic EQ (which you...

    USB Livestream

    https://www.allen-heath.com/media/Qu-Mixer-Reference-Guide-AP9372_10.pdf You can create a separate mix to send to USB (for your FB stream) vs. main, if all you are doing is changing balances (e.g., to account for a live amp in house but needing more of that in the FB stream). It's certainly...

    No output to headphones

    You haven't shown any screenshots of a Logic project with the input assignments and the control app with mix routing. You know, keep it simple... I'm not convinced you're doing everything correctly. All I'm asking for is just a mic plugged directly into the back, i.e., XLR to XLR into any input...

    No output to headphones

    I did not say "scrap" but to get it working with just the Focusrite. And, you do need to use the 1/4" jacks on the front or the back *once you figure out the routing* with what should be a balanced connector that goes to the ART, but carry on... p.s. i assume you can listen to all your audio...

    Maybe dumb question about Beyerdynamic DT770s

    You can send me a link to a raw (24-bit, unprocessed or normalized) track (short-ish, and something not involving bras, please), and some instructions what you want cleaned up, and I can do a video with RX 8 showing how I'd do it. Then you can decide if it's an improvement or something you'd...

    No output to headphones

    You do change the input assigned to the track in Logic when you plug the mic into a different input in the back, right? Again, skip the ART until you have the right cables, or some adapters so you can plug into the 1/4" inputs. Just work with the mic going direct into the Focusrite. Attach...

    No output to headphones

    P.S. The 8Pre is, like most interfaces, designed so that the combo XLR-1/4" jacks auto-select between a microphone or line level (optionally line/INST if a switchable input), depending on the type of plug used. If you are taking a LINE signal from the ART (which model??) to the Focusrite on a...

    No output to headphones

    You usually wouldn't want sound going to the speakers during recording, but the level controls on the [Clarett 8Pre???] interface are both at least turned off the zero mark I assume? Do you hear something when playing back the recording? Your post seems to imply that is working. (Another reason...

    No output to headphones

    Just guessing... Check that you do not have the Mute button selected for an input channel in the Focusrite Mix Control app (whatever it's called for your interface). Mix control only affects the mix that is sent to the output, and typically this would be used to create specific mixes for...

    Maybe dumb question about Beyerdynamic DT770s

    I generally only use the de-clip plugin on guitar tracks to reduce pick noise, and then I have to listen carefully. The Standard version, with the standalone product, gives you more powerful tools, like the "spectral de-noise" that I have found works pretty well if given a bit of "blank"...

    Maybe dumb question about Beyerdynamic DT770s

    You've maybe missed that OP is new at the craft (both voiceover and recording) is working in a very small, semi-untreated, small space and probably working closer to the mic to try and work against outside noises. A bit of apples and oranges here.

    Maybe dumb question about Beyerdynamic DT770s

    Headphones are designed for certain markets, purposes, price points, etc. I see the DT770s used primarily in recording and streaming, where a comfortable, sealed, closed back set of headphones is most important. And, personally, I think they are very nice for listening to some types of music...

    Splitter Cable, splitting 1 condenser microphone output to two inputs for Apollo solo usb

    They make a thing called a microphone splitter which creates a transformer isolated copy of the signal. The direct path is used to provide phantom power if needed. That is what should be used. I had a stack of them but sold them because I use an 8x splitter from Behringer. I would not use a...

    Maybe dumb question about Beyerdynamic DT770s

    I would never characterize my 250ohm set as thin, but I don’t listen to any modern stuff either.

    Maybe dumb question about Beyerdynamic DT770s

    I like my DT770s for tracking and listening, but I don’t mix with them. For that, there’s the HS5 monitors or a pair of (lower priced 5xx) Sennheiser open back cans. While I like what I hear in the 770s, I don’t hear the kind of midrange openness and clarity that gets me to something that always...

    Is there any way to connect wireless headphones to Zoom H6 for monitoring?

    You don't say what the reason for this is, i.e., what you're doing, so just guessing... Unless you're moving around a lot, I'd stick with wired. If it's for video and you don't want the headphones look then get some decent IEMs and an extension cable, with the wires going down your back for a...

    Maybe dumb question about Beyerdynamic DT770s

    Just guessing but probably 32 ohms is about as low as you can go and still get "good enough" quality when driven by a miniscule headphone amp in a smartphone, ipod/mp3 player, Sony Walkman, transistor radio, et al, over a coupla/few feet of tiny wires. I.e., it's a consumer grade standard due to...

    Maybe dumb question about Beyerdynamic DT770s

    I think Amazon is using other returns for exchanges. So it’s kind of an “open box” item vs. “used” - not quite the same, and you still could return it or use the manufacturer’s warranty. I’m not an Amazon fanboy and avoid them if I can find another vendor I like, but it’s probably a reasonable...

    Thunderbolt or usb

    Edit: I skipped right over the fact that your computer is not Thunderbolt equipped! So, mostly what @TalismanRich said. But in the TMI category... Pretty sure the Clarett is Thunderbolt 2. If it is, you need a physical adapter as the 3 is a different plug (USB-C form factor). Very few T-bolt 3...
