I was hoping to ask a question regarding master fader levels on Cubase and my mixer (which also has a speaker volume knob.)
My current setup of Cubase and the Yamaha n12 mixer allows me to have Cubase’s master fader, the master fader on my mixer, which also has a control room volume knob. Now even though I keep the master fader of Cubase and the mixer at unity most of the times, lets say I have three levels of control over the levels coming out of the monitors.
But recently I decided to purchase a sound card since the mixer’s kinda getting old and noisy. Although I just cant seem to figure out as to how does it work out with a sound card? It will just be Cubases’s master fader and the control room volume knob on the sound card. Which is basically 2 levels of control over the levels as opposed to three with the mixer. So I was just wondering about a couple if things -
Will I miss something? Are the “volume” knobs on sound cards control room knobs or are they like the master fader on the mixer?
Currently I can get great levels out of my Genelecs with the control room knob of the mixer at just 50% and master fader at unity. Will a soundcard give me such a huge output for speaker volume?
Just not able to wrap my head around it or find much with a Google search. So thought people here might have some advise and knowledge to share. Will be kinda awesome
Thanks! Great to be back on the forum after a break!
