    I’m recording all my channels as insert sends so they are completely dry. What if I wanted to also record one of the channels with some compression on it? If I send that channel to one of the mixes, patch one of the channels to be the mix, and add compression will the channel recording have the compression applied?

    For example I have vocals on channel 1.
    Send Channel 1 to Mix 1.
    In the Qu-Drive multitrack patch screen patch channel 12 to be Mix 1.
    Then add my compression on the mix.

    Thanks,

    Jones

    Also see the manual for “Direct out” points – you can select how dry you want the signal. Remember you can always apply eq/compression etc later if you record dry, but you can’t take it out afterwards if you record wet.

    Thanks everyone. What I want to do is record both the dry and processed vocal. This looks like the way to do it.

    Yes, to record both you need to (ab)use mixes etc.
