Ive recently picked up a new preamp and compressor for my studio. Since i’ve never really used outboard gear, im just wondering how I would hook it all up for both tracking and mixing. Ive just bought an Art MPA II Preamp and an Art VLA II compressor.
My audio interface is a Presonus firestudio tube(link to pic of connections below)
The main questions I have are how I would hook up my compressor so that I can:
a) Use it for light compression on tracking etc
b) Send recorded tracks to the compressor and back into DAW for mixing.
The way I have it setup at the moment is Art MPA > Art VLA > Presonus Firestudio Line input but this will only work for tracking right?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
