I am a little confused when it comes to use headphone mixes.
My plan was to create a FX track in cubase, and assign that to 2 outputs on my audio interface (saffire pro 26 i/o), in which I have a headphone amp connected. I could then send all the tracks I wanted the musician to hear to the FX track, so he in that way could get his own mix. This is the “conventional” way to do it if I have understood it right.
Thats fine when it comes to sending tracks that are already recorded and are playing back in cubase. But it doesn’t work the way I want when it comes to the instruments that are being recorded at the moment. The tracks that are being recorded are sent to the headphone-amp from the audiointerface software (zero latenzy monitoring). And the problem is that it seems to be no possibiliy to create more than one mix in the saffire pro 26 i/o software. So my problem is:
If I record a bass player and a guitar player, I create two FX track, as described above. But if lets say the guitar player want to hear more of himself, I turn the level of his input signal up in the audio interface software. But then, the bass player will also hear more of the guitarist, since there seems to be no possibity to create more than one mix!!
The solution maybe is to enable the yellow button on the instrument tracks that are being recorded in cubase. (the monitor button) But it sounds kind of like there is a chorus effect when I enable that. Why does it sound that way?
Do you got any ideas how I could set up this the best way?
