Routing Xite Effects to external mixing board

Post by dubcotics » Wed May 15, 2019 1:43 am

Hi,

I'm trying to route any Xite effects to an old analogue mixing desk. I've managed to route my semi modular analogue synthesizer's reverb to one of the Aux of the mixing desk so far . I'm sure it possible with Xite, I have the Ferrofish A 16. What I did as an example is to route Xite Effect > ADAT output > Aux of the mixing desk but it results in nothing, please correct me if I'm doing anything wrong here,


Regards,

Didier

what is sent to the effect? where does the signal come from?

usually, an aux is a SEND. of course there are aux RETURNS, but those are usually used when there are no channels left to return the fx to. routing a Scope effect to hardware is exactly like routing a Scope effect to the Scope mixer...

Does the mixer use ADAT?
If not I’m assuming you’re using analog.

ASIO Source into Scope FX. Scope FX output into ASIO Destination.
Ferrofish Analog Outs to hardware mixers Return FX or Aux ins or channels in, etc.

Hello,

A picture is worth more than a thousand word. With that routing I can only assign the signal path to the returns of the analogue desk not to the AUX therefore cannot apply effect to the desired track/channel , the signal affects all channels unless I turn down the return knob.

where are you mixing? on the Scope mixer or the Analog board?
i don't get what channel you are trying to add fx to, or where it is. i think you are just flailing and not taking the time to follow the signal. what is connect to the ADAT i/o? if you are using an AD/DA, you can route the signal ANYWHERE. why are you trying to return to an AUX? returns go to a return channel or an channel on the mixer that you are mixing on. an AUX comes from any individual channel that you wish to apply fx, using the AUX knob on that channel. there is ZERO reason to go to an AUX. you should have signal coming FROM an AUX, either on the Scope mixer or on the hardware mixer, depending on what you are doing.
