Behringer X32 mixer with the outputs routed into separate channels in Cubase.
The signal in the X32 is being taken directly after the gain adjust - the console’s channel strips and inserts do not affect the signal that’s routed to Cubase!
Mix (for the X32 Main outs) is done initially on the X32, but a separate mix is being created in Cubase (for demo tapes, etc.).
I want to create a setup that allows me to compare the Cubase mix with the mix I created on the Behringer X32. The output signal has to be routed to both the Cubase main out (containing the Cubase mix) and to each separate channel’s out (from there routed to each channel of the X32).
The easiest way would be to take the Cubase signal directly after the gain adjustment and route it back to the X32 (just like in the X32 allow me to). But as far as I know, no such possibility exists?! The earliest “pickup-point” for sends in Cubase is prefader - which is behind the channel strip.
Even direct routing or CR won’t solve my problem.
There are three (not very pro workarounds) that I figured out:
1.) create two different mixer setups (one with all faders at 0 and no channel strip, inserts, etc.), save them and switch between both. Not very practical and high chance of missing a save…
2.) Create the double amount of tracks and record the incoming signals from the X32 on two tracks instead of one, do the mixing on one, leave the second one untouched and use mute groups . No - not very pro…
3.) Use key commands to switch off channel strip, EQ and inserts and use prefader sends to the X32 channels. However, there is no possibility to switch off all pres with one keycommand…
Any ideas, how I can get the signal completely unprocessed (“pre-pre” so to say) back to the X32 but at the same time be able to create a Cubase Mix?
