How many of you use the Control room mixer?
- 1. I use it and really enjoy this feature.
- 2. I have tried it but with my project studio, I don’t need it.
- 3. Never tried it, seemed a little complicated.
I have to admit that I have not been using the Control Room mixer in my project studio. I have the Presonus Central Station which allows me to mute, mono/or stereo my mixes, and with everything recorded in my one room, I did not think I really needed it.
With that being said, I have seen many new hardware hybrid devices out there, and there was always talk about the auxilary’s and the ability to have separate mixes for the singer, etc. I typicially just used the mix on my screen and made changes for customers, and then I would mix it again later on. I realized how much more work I am giving myself by this workflow. So I started to use the Control Room mixer, and have really enjoyed using the separate mix, being able to add reverb to the singer, or give a bass player hotter drum mixes in his cans. While on the Control Room mixer page, even though I have some of the features on the Presonus, it’s nice to have it on the mixer as well, and sometimes it’s faster to just click some of the nice function. I have not got into all the capabilties yet, but I am enjoying it. I am currently not aware of any other DAW that has a Control Room function like Nuendo/Cubase. Very nice feature indeed.
