    Is it possible to run an output out through an input socket on the GLD? I had the wrong adapter, a male xlr-rca instead of a female xlr-rca, so I attempted to patch a matrix output to one of the input sockets on the console surface. I can do it in the IO, but I could not get sound of it. When I used the tab at the bottom of the touchscreen to check the source, it identified the port as a “mono matrix ext in”, instead of a matrix out. Eventually I just solved my problem with different adapters, but is it possible to do this?

    Hi Steve

    No I’m afraid you cannot send an output to an input socket on the GLD.

    In the I/O page the input socket window allows you to choose where the physical socket is routed to within the desk.

    For example if you selected input socket 1 on the AR2412 by default it will normally be routed to input DSP channel 1, though you can also send it to mono matrix External input. this means that input socket 1 on the AR2412 will be routed to the external input of mono matrix 1 you will be able to check this by selecting mono matrix 1 and viewing the external input page.

    So you are choosing where the physical socket is being routed to in the DSP.

    Hope that helps

    Regards
