    Hello,

    I’m using a stereo matrix to record my shows. I feed the matrix with the main L/R signal. The only disadvantage is, that I always record the EQed main mix. Is there a possibility to select the “matrix out point”? Or is the only way to use Main as the recording feed and use a matrix out for the PA system an do all the EQing here?

    Best regards
    Manuel

    Current firmware does not support selection of the matrix send point. This is being considered for a future release.

    Yes, using the matrix out for the PA is a good solution. My typical mix setup is to work with an LRSub main mix (separate feed to the sub bass speakers), then route the main LR via stereo matrix 1 to L and R of the PA, and the main Sub mix via stereo matrix 2 to Sub of the PA. Of course I only need one feed from the Sub stereo matrix but the advantage that gives me is the ability to gang GEQ on those two matrix so that I have instant access to one graphic EQ that affects the whole PA. Stereo matrix 3 and 4 pick up the main mix for a couple recording feeds which are not affected by the main PA EQ. On the surface you can bury the main L, R and Sub masters on a layer you don’t use and then control your main mix from just two strips assigned from stereo matrix 1 and 2.

    But that is just one way of working to achieve what you want…

    Halo Carey,
    that’s exactly what I wanted to know. Nice to read that i wasn’t too far away. The idea of ganging the two matrix for using one EQ is great.

    Also, I think that If you put your Main LR in PRE for your Matrix should bypass the EQ altogether. I used this function to send audio to a TV station without affecting my PA mix…

    Just to clarify… In the current version of firmware, both the pre and post fade sends to the matrix are post-EQ so the main mix EQ will affect the matrix even if you set it pre fader.

    Could you not mix the house from the matrix outs (using matrix eqs) and record from the L-R outs (eq bypassed)?

    I mentioned using the matrix for the main PA in my original post. I still think that this is the easiest way…
