You are right, Sm58.
Its exact the same my tech said when he saw the schematics and the Channelstrip/ PCB.
Strange..., some Orions seem to have the Insert PreEQ, some have it PostEQ???
Anyway! Here is my solution to use my outboard gear PreEq:
- Daw output to MonInput/ console
- insert-y-cable (send) from MonInsert/ console to input/ outboard gear
- output/ outboard gear to LineIn/ console
to use Insert PreEQ:
LineButton in down position; MixButton in up position; TapeButton in down position
to use Insert PostEQ:
LineButton up; MixButton down; TapeButton down
- insert-y-cable from ChanInsert to outboard gear (send and return)
To change between PreInsert/ PostInsert Eq I only have to switch/ patch one cable and press two buttons on my Orion.
What do you think?
Have a nice day
