I’ve been using a desk for years. Even with my Artist Series Controller/Transport units, all the audio still passes through my DA-7 desk.
I am in the process of transitioning to an ITB rigg. Since my desk is doing little more than monitoring the stems that come out of Nuendo and the fact that it tops out at 48K, I’m finding it harder and harder to justify it’s continued use. So now, I’m reading the manuals and specs on the audio interfaces I’ll purchase that will replace the desk. But I’m having difficulty understanding how this is going to connect together to make the Artists Series Gear become the new desk.
I assumed that Nuendo’s Control room would allow some sort of connection with the Artist Series Control. But I’m not finding it. Here’s what came ujp in the frop down menu for the N7 Control Room.
All it’s showing is plug-ins (???) How do I get it to see my RME RayDat Card and my monitors? The Nuage Tutorials made it look like the connections would be a snap. But alas, I will be trying to achieve the same thing with an Artist Control, Transport and 2 Mix units (20 fader total).
I’m planning on a system using a Focusrite 8 Ch. Mic Pre, Audient 8 Ch. Mic Pre and a couple of 4 Ch. API Pres feeding an Orion 32 Ch. ADDA into my PC via the 32 Ch, RayDat card. I wanted the basic set up to work with 1 Mix and the MC to act as the faders of the desk and the 2nd Mix to act as the 8 Bus/VCA/Aux Master section of the desk. I’ve got to connect 2 pairs of stereo monitors and a 5.1 set of monitors, that theoretically should be able to be controlled from the Artist Series Units, right?
Can someone talk me through this process, there is literally only one line of information on the Control/Monitor knob on the MC Control. The Mix Units don’t arrive until next week, so I don’t have any other info on them other than how to connect them.
Anybody here using the setup I just described? Can you help? Right now, I may have just found the reason to keep the desk, just for simplification purposes!
