JamHub as a monitor mixer
My story is I got into this recording thing kinda by accident. Never expected to be recording full bands in my basement.... but here I am.... And the ONE thing, gear wise, that always eluded me was having individual mixes for all the players. When I say "eluded" I mean "HOLY CRAP THAT STUFF IS EXPENSIVE!!!!!"
After getting one of these to facilitate "quiet"rehearsals, it became obvious that I could just run a TRS Snake from the outs of my front end (Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56) to the ins on the JamHub. That was it!!!! Everyone had their own custom mix that they set THEMSELVES!!!! Mainly, it makes it way easier on me because I generally play bass as well as operate the DAW at the same time. Less time tweaking = more time recording. Gotta love it!
I was skeptical about the quality of the preamps at this price point. I figured if everyone could hear everyone else then that was enough. I've been extremely pleased at the quality of the pres in this thing. Clean, and plenty loud. And as a bass playing tone snob, I'm very happy with the signal quality either plugging in direct for rehearsal or monitoring the bass through my DAW. My only gripe, and it's a small one, is that sometimes the stacked knob config confuses me a little (insert bass player joke HERE). But for the price? Yeah, I can totally get used to it. At the end of the day, JamHub is far from being a one trick pony. I realize the company has been touting it as mainly a rehearsal system but man I'm telling you this is thee way to go for separate headphone mixes when recording. Go look at the prices of the other personal mixing solutions out there... then go buy a JamHub. I. FREAKIN. LOVE. THIS. THING. IMO JamHub is THEE solution for small studios. It works perfectly for my personal situation. Best bang for the buck that I've found, hands down!
