Just wondering here, what is the Direct Routing rack useful for? I mean, its specific and exclusive applications?
What can you do with it that cannot be achieved via pre-fader sends?
I know Direct Routing is more akin to the standard-mix-console-structure that offers direct outputs instead of using sends, which is a kind of workaround in limited analog consoles. And yes, it makes my OCD levels go down when I see the Direct Routing assignments at the bottom of the racks instead of in the middle position of the sends rack. But… beyond that, they seem kind of redundant to me…
Please prove me wrong. I want to understand the usefulness they bring to the table.
Pardon the lack of insight here. I just haven’t had enough sleep lately.
