I generally monitor using just my sound card software, so all monitoring is done prior to Cubase. I’m comfortable with that, it works and doesn’t force me to run my buffer too low.
However, from time to time I do a session where the system is pretty much set up to use the DAW for monitoring. There is a headphone distribution system for the band, so I just have to get the appropriate signals to each spot. In the past I’ve just created additional outputs used aux sends for the mono more me outs and the stereo mix was going out the main stereo pair.
What I hate about that is I can’t change what I am hearing or the band will hear the change, overdubbing becomes a messy process, and you have to keep clicking the monitor button on many tracks to switch to playback then back to tracking.
I suspect using the control room could solve some of these problems, but I don’t have a lot of time prior to the session to figure this out - it’s next week. I’ve tried reading the manual, but my brain rebels for some reason…
Any help would be appreciated!
