I’ve seen the 15 minute video on youtube regarding control room and it has been useful. However I’m not entirely sure how to go about the physical connections at the back on my interface, and then on toward the performers headphone.
Example setup: I want to record together
- Drummer (playing E-Drum kit triggering VST superior drummer kit).
The available inputs/outputs on my MR816 CSX are all 8 inputs and outputs 3-8.
So, I obviously plug in a mic into channel 1, line guitar pickup into 2, line lead into 3. The drummer is triggering Superior Drummer via the Roland E-Drums.
So my big question is, how do I assign the outputs in the control room setup? I ask because ideally I want each performer to have a stereo headphone mix. So to use the vocalists headphone mix as an example, do I take the outputs 3 & 4 and into a single stereo jack (female for the headphone connection to plug into), i.e. a ‘Y’ cable? Or am I way off?
I think I will be able to work out the routing of cue sends but the physical outs to headphones is the bit I’m not getting.
Can anyone help please?
