i’m going to record a band next week and although I could use a traditional setup with a DM2000 i wanna try to do it entirely in the box using Keyboard Shortcuts and Midi-Controllers. Since we’ve got a RME-Card, I can use zero latency (“direct-”) monitoring and still controll my Cue-Sends in Cubase via “ASIO Direct Monitoring”. It worked very well in my tests, but there are a few features I couldn’t find that would really improve the workflow:
- Controlling the Cue-Send levels with a generic midi controller - I had to use a workaround with the “Quick Controls” to achieve this (would that be easier with eucon?)
- There is a nice function that lets me copy the Main-Fader levels of the selected tracks to a specific Cue-Send level and the same for the pan position. Why can’t I use a keyboard shortcut or Midi-Controller for this? Unfortunately I have to use a dropdown menu for this…
- This is not as important as the other two points, but sometimes it would be awesome to be able to link the Main Panner and the Cue-Send Panners. Especially since the panning of the Direct-Monitoring doesn’t follow the Main-Panner, even if the Cue-Send is set to post-fader
Please let me know if there are possibilities that I just didn’t find to achieve those things. If those features are really missing, they would be huge improvements for recording without old-fashioned mix-consoles. In fact I would consider buying a UR824 if those features would be available.
And yes, I’m sure that the few milliseconds latency of non direct monitoring do make a difference!
Thanks in advance for any tipps or answers
