How do you guys deal with Talk Back duties in a PT situation?
Setup an SM57 somewhere in your vicinity, don't aim it directly at speakers, bring it up on a PT aux input.
Create new audio track. Write a small section (couple of sec) of white noise onto that track using Audio Suite Signalgenerator and loop that section, something like 999 times. Assign output of this track to bus 64.
Insert a side-chainable gate on your SM57 Aux input track and use bus (buss? whatever...) 64 as your Key in. set medium attack and release.
Now, everytime you hit playback the mic will get muted, when you stop playback the mic will open - all automatically
remind everybody present in the control room that the artist(s) will be able to hear all the comments...
