A question (some questions actually
monitor hook up and Mixer dB LEDs.
I currently have my Yamaha MW10c mixer
hooked up via a Delta 1010. I have the 2 inserts and channels 3&4 panned hard left and
right connected to the Delta 1010 to give four independent channels into my DAW.
have a stereo pair out from the 1010 back into the monitor of the mixer then monitor out
to my active monitors. So far so good...
But I have noticed that even that even with
a MONO output from the DAW, the left hand LED strip on the mixer is always quieter than
the right. This leads me to think something is wrong with the hardware. I checked the
signal level buttons on the rear of the 1010 more times than I care to remember so either
a DA in the 1010 is broke or the left channel in my mixer isn't right?
solution is to hook the monitors straight into the Delta 1010, so that means using the
Master fader in the DAW to control the speaker volume. But this means I no longer have a
volume control for the speakers (Formally used volume on the MX10c) Do I lose anything if
I am mixing with the master fader in the DAW down?
SO to sum up:
could be causing the LEDs in the MX10c to be unbalanced when mono signal is sent,
Is it sensible to have the mixer between the delta 1010 and active
If I use the master fader in the DAW do I lose anything?
