Monitor mix with reverb, Saffire 56

Hi,

I recently got a Saffire 56 and love the sound of it so far. I know it does not have any onboard DSP, but is there a way I can setup a monitor mix with reverb on the vocals being recorded?

I'm guessing the mic in would have to go into my DAW (SonarX1), have the reverb added, and then monitor the output of the DAW? I'm afraid this will add too much latency to sound good to the talent?

Any tips / other techniques?

Thanks

You can lower the buffer on LS56 to 64 samples, which shouldnt be too noticeable for a singer or a player. But the best way is to buy some external cheap reverb unit. I have Lexicon MX200, around 300$, but you can find alot cheaper ones. Zero latency and you can route it the way you like with Mixcontrol software.

I just bought a small soundcraft mixer, with fx built in for monitoring in my booth. Works great and only $200

Mix the input to the wet reverb from your daw and think the small latency on the verb as predelay

Thanks - will try lowering the sample buffer (just got my saffire up and running yesterday). I do have an old external lexicon reverb unit I could use for some cheap monitoring reverb as well.

BTW - like your Amiga Kickstart image!
