I am hoping that someone here with a but more knowledge than me can help with my setup...
I currently have 3 hardware synths connected to my EPM8 with their sends connected to a Zoom R24 for recording using the radioshack stereo to mono plug converters.
I am currently considering getting a budget effects unit which I was planning to connect using the Aux out, returning it to one of the spare stereo input channels.
My problem is that I thought I would do a test using my RE-20 Space Echo pedal (which is currently just being used direct on one of the synth outputs). I connected it to the Aux 1 send (using one of the Radioshack adapters) to the mono input on the RE-20, connected the outputs of the RE-20 to one of the spare stereo inputs (I've tried stereo and mono), flicked the direct swich to off so that the output was purely the effect but I'm not getting anything when I raise the Aux 1 pots on any of the channels.
I don't have a Y cable at present to connect the Aux send to the RE-20 so I don't know if that is maybe the issue?
I have tried switching the Aux master buttons to pre and post and also the PFL buttons on each track on and off but not getting any effect applied to the sounds.
I don't want to invest in a new piece of kit if I can't get it work with what I have so if anyone can tell me what (if anything) I'm doing wrong it would be a great help.
I've come from using purely software for a few years to enjoying the luxury of harware but I'm not quite there with my cabling knowledge and button pressing yet
