I have just purchased a UR44 and am attempting to interface it with outboard analog synthesizers, a mackie 1202vlz mixer, and Logic Pro X.
I’m having a heck of a time getting my levels correct consistently and am wondering if someone can help?
The outboard gear runs into the inputs on the Mackie. The control room outs on the Mackie connect to my studio monitors. My control room submix has Main Mix and Alt 3/4 engaged.
My Alt 3/4 outputs go to input 3/4 line inputs on the UR44, and the main stereo outputs from the UR44 go back into stereo channel 11/12 on the Mackie. This means for any channel input with outboard synthesizer connected, I can simply press mut/alt 3/4 channel routing to reroute the synth from control room monitors to the UR44 for recording in Logic.
My end goal is to play synthesizers at some sufficient volume, be able to press mute for that channel and record them at that same volume while still listening to them on the monitors, then have the Logic recording play back at that same level after recording. I just can’t seem to get it all to balance.
Any tips? Anyone been through this process?
