Hi all, I’ve got a question I hope the community can help me with. Previously, I’ve been recording/monitoring my drum setup running the mics into my Yamaha mixer, then using the mixer’s digital out into the digital in on the interface, then into Cubase. I have sixteen tracks in my daisychained Presonus interfaces and now want to run the mics directly into the mic ins on the interfaces and into Cubase. My question is: how do I do this and monitor my mix with effects and EQ out of Cubase and back to my headphones so I can hear all with FX and EQ while I’m playing? Do I need some sort of Direct monitoring sound card? (The Direct Monitoring option is grayed out in the devices setup in Cubase)
I have never run my mics through the interface as separate channels, choosing instead to run out of the board via it’s two-track digital out - doing all the EQ and FX via the board. I know this is inefficient and that I don’t have channel separation for mixing. Is there a way I can set it up so I can perform/monitor real time using Cubase’s EQ and FX?
