Cool I Could use some help

I'm using a Behringer 1622FX, BBE 362 and Compressor on the front end of my recording gear. But running the BBE in line with the mixer and compressor makes some noise. I was thinking that I could simply patch the BBE into the send receive plugs on the mixer and still have that great sound. But when I read the manual on setting it up it covers about 4 to 6 different mixers all in one. It only touches on the auxilary send receive so was of no help. Anybody here familiar with that particular model and know how to patch it in?

Minimal signal path is generally the rule to follow, so you wouldn't want either unit in the chain unless you're actually using it.... in which case, you'd most likely want to connect the compressor and/or the BBE via the channel inserts.

Also, I'm not sure why you consider the BBE to have a "great sound." Units such as this are most often abused by novices as an excuse to proper recording technique.... I'd use it sparingly if I were you - great sound comes from recording chops, not gear.

Hey Bruce. Thanks for the heads up on that. So you're saying I ought to ditch the compressor and the BBE for initial recording? But how do you control the sudden bursts from a vox that would cause it to go off the board? Record at low volume and goose it up in the mix? Remember mine is a simple system. When I cut a song it's ... Press Play and run like mad to the sound booth heh Mine's a one man operation. Thanks again.
