This is very very basic stuff, but it’s been a pain for years. Can you maybe help me figure out a better solution?
I simply don’t need the control room feature. I have a beautiful Dangerous Music ST monitor controller that does everything I need with my speakers. I have a 16 channel headphone system that only needs normal buss outputs. Everything about control room is redundant for me.
So I turn it off…but… for some reason I lose monitoring during real time export. I use analog hardware in mixing so I have to do realtime and monitoring during the export is crucial. I always hear things I didn’t hear before during export. My clients want to be able to hear it.
With the Control Room on I can’t hear playback of offline DSP previews. What’s the story with that? It has to be through cues or something? It’s all such a needless complicated pain.
Please… can someone make sense of this? I simply want to use the my output 1/2 for my main output and then actually HEAR everything I should be hearing. I can’t believe this mess has survived as many versions of the software as it has.
Timo? Any ops? Please suggest a configuration that will meet my needs. My very simple needs. Thank you.
