I just bought a ramsa 820 & have an old CM automation 16i/o insert type midi controlled automation rack.
I'm gonna try it out to see if I like it, but here my question.
I'm relocating the internal PS of mixer freeing up space. I could remove the pcb from the CM auto rack, remove the 1/4 jacks, and hard wire this to the inserts...I think... Where the automation insert will work AND I can patch in my TRS patch point. I'll use a Frontier USB midi fader & protools midi tracks to control & store automation.
The 820 being an unbalanced console, I figured less cabling the better.
Would this work or should I just patch it and use as normal & if I wanna patch in a piece of outboard just it in line "pre" automation box.
**I'm recapping this thing & making the PS external, sooo...while I'm in it!
