help - how to integrate compressors with mixer?

Hi -

Running a Midas Venice 240 and have been using the inserts on my channels and groups for adding outboard compression.

My setup has 16 D/A so those 16 go directly to the mixer...

I have 4 stereo only comps (8 Channels) and 5 single channels of compression, plus a stereo bus compressor.

How would you connect all this?

Currently I run all 16 D/A to the mixer and then use inserts - I might want to try running the 16 D/A to the patchbay and "inserting" the comps before the signals get to the mixer...this way they can be run balanced all the way.

Has anyone done it both ways and seen a clear winner?





Thanks

Exactly the way you're contemplating: with a patchbay.

Just do it, go TT and 96 points. It'll change your life and accommodate your setup as it grows; win-win!

Good advice! And if you're going 96pt TT, get a DB25 bay. You'll thank yourself later.
