    Only guessing: The mics are sent pre fader to the aux mix?
    They may have to be configured as post fader send to be affected by the AMM. Would that be an option for you?

    (If you want to change it you can select the aux mix on the right side, hold “Pre Fade” on the left side and deselect the channels you want to be post fader.)

    If however, you use a ME system (which you would want to use direct outputs for) you would definitely want to use tie lines.

    Since we actually use a ME system this is a very helpful advice and totally makes sense. Thank you for taking the time to describe pros and cons of USB recording via Tie Lines in greater detail!

    Hi Keith,

    ok, we already compensated for the difference in the DAW. Thanks for the affirmation.
    But I don’t quite get what you suggested the Tie Lines for. Did you mean to path input sockets to USB output sockets? In which way does this effect the use of patch libraries? We already use patch libraries without using tie lines for switching between local/slink and usb.

    @volunteer Thanks for the hint to the actual cause.

    @sinakunkel We use recording via USB-B together with RTA on PEQ without any problems.

    Hi Steffen,

    although I wasn’t quite shure I expected the headroom to be sufficient. Nonetheless I don’t want the peak light to flash because then I will always ignore it, even if it might be clipping after the limiter (because someone increased the output gain or what so ever). We are mixing with several engineers on the same board, so things must be as intuitive as possible.
    Good to know anyway, thank you!

    Hey Keith,

    thanks for your super fast response!
    If I get you correctly the problem could be that the signal is peaking pre limiter (which indeed is quite likely – I’m not used to this problem from mixing in a DAW where I normally set the threshold just below 0dbFS an increase input gain until hitting the threshold). So would the solution be to mix lower (adjust threshold accordingly) and to increase the output level after the limiter(/compressor) using the output gain?

    Thanks,
    Pascal

    Hi, if I remember correctly they decided to save the mono/stereo channel configuration only in the show file (not the scene file) because changing the mono/stereo configuration results inevitable in an interruption of the audio. In some situations/environments you need to be able to load a scene while there is still audio going through the console.
    That’s why some people already asked for a linking/ganging feature so that you can use two linked mono channels for a stereo signal.

    +1 for LPF in channel EQ (very useful when mixing synth pads)

    I would definitly use Mixing Station for SQ. Exactly as you sad: the operation of the official app on smaller devices isn’t very convenient.

    I think in many situations it may be sufficient to use the side chain without a second channel, since the side chain feature of the compressor allows

    1. the channel itself to be the side chain source (“self keyed”) and
    2. to apply a HPF to the side chain signal.

    Therefore, if you enable the side chain filter with HPF at lets say 6kHz, you can let the compressor only react to frequencies over 6kHz. Everything below won’t trigger the compressor. I used this approach lately and it worked out great. The only downside I see is that you are limited to a HPF and can’t choose a specific frequency to trigger the compressor. But in exchange for this drawback you have a much simpler setup. And if you need another compressor for “normal” compression you could then again route the signal to a group and compress there.

    especially with adjustable hold time

    +1 for HPF/LPF on mix busses and matrix outputs. As long as this is missing in SQ-Series, it’s clearly a strong argument against it. Would appreciate to see this implemented soon.
