I’m using Cubase 6.5 with a Creative X-Fi Elite Pro as my primary audio-interface with a pair of HS80M connected. In order to improve my mixes I just ordered a pair of grot-boxes for secondary monitoring. What is the best practice to connect both pairs of monitors to my Windows 7 PC? My Asus mainboard has onboard-sound. Is it possible to connect the grot-boxes to the onboard soundcard and route the main-out of cubase to that output, too? Or are there any windows tools available to establish this kind of routing? If so, are there any drawbacks to be expected regarding latency?
I know that there are monitor-controllers available. But for now I am searching for a low-budget solution:-) Later I will invest in a firewire-interface with 8 outputs or so.
Thanks for your advice in advance!
