This crib will guide you through how to use the mix busses to route to the eight available sub groups and also how to independently record those sub groups into Pro Tools.
1. Locate the bus routing section of the channel you wish to send to a sub group.
2. Decide if you want to send audio from the long fader or short fader and press the LF button depending on your choice.
3. Ensure the mix buttons for the SF and LF are up. You only want to hear audio from the sub group, not the source as well.
4. With audio playing through either the LF or SF, bring up the fader.
5. Press the mix button for the sub group you have sent audio to. In this case it is Sub Group 1.
6. Slowly bring up the fader to a desired level. If the VU meter for the sub group is too high, lower the faders that are bussed to it.
7. Locate the Sub Group outputs on the patchbay and connect into the Motu 16A inputs.
1. Within Pro Tools create a stereo channel for the sub group and set the inputs to 25 – 26, if connected to Motu 16A 1–2. In GR1 the Motu 24ai does the first 1–24 inputs in Pro Tools, with the 16A doing 25 – 40.
Make sure the outputs of these channels are to available channels. Outputting onto used channels could cause a feedback loop.
2. Click record enable and input monitoring to see the sub group signal on the pro tools VU meters.
3. Press record and play. Monitor the recording via the subgroup using the mix button or via a return from Pro Tools, outputted to two available channels.
1. If the signal is too hot into pro tools, lower the sub group fader on the Audient.
2. Ensure there are no connections into the send and return patching of the sub groups.
