Routing to the Outboard Equipment

This crib will guide you through using the outboard gear in Greenrooms 1 with the Audi­ent ASP8024-​HE while track­ing and also dur­ing mixdown.

Whilst Track­ing:

1. On the ban­tam patch­bay, locate the chan­nel you are want­ing to send to the outboard unit.

2. Con­nect the ‘Chan­nel Path’ send to the ‘(outboard unit) In’.

3. Con­nect the ‘(outboard unit) Out’ to the ‘Chan­nel Path return'.

4. Finally press the insert active but­ton in the mic pre sec­tion of the chan­nel you’re on. This will send the sig­nal out through the send and receive what's on the return.

By doing this you are com­mit­ting to the set­tings on the com­pres­sor when you record.


Whilst Mixing:

1. On the ban­tam patch­bay, locate the chan­nel you are want­ing to send to the outboard unit.

2. Con­nect the ‘Tape Return Path’ send to the ‘(outboard unit) In’.

3. Con­nect the ‘(outboard unit) Out’ to the ‘Chan­nel Path line in' of a new channel.

In this exam­ple, WA2A out is con­nected to Chan­nel 2 Tape Path-​Line In.

4. This means you have your orig­i­nal sig­nal on one chan­nel and the processed sig­nal on another.

5. Cre­ate a chan­nel on Pro Tools for the processed sig­nal and set the input to the chan­nel you patched to on the desk.

6. Press Record enable and input mon­i­tor­ing to see the sig­nal on the pro tools metres.

7. Press record on the trans­port bar in Pro Tools. When you press play the processed sig­nal will be recorded into Pro Tools in real time.
