Hi.. I've had my DP-24 Portastudio a couple of months now and am pretty pleased with it, but I am interested to know how other owners manage the use of external effects. I chose hardware like this over Pro-Tools and plug ins etc. because I like that approach better: you know, sliders, faders, rotary controls and physical buttons. I am second guessing that now though... here's why. I expected to have some effect sends and returns on the back panel so I could use the cool reverbs on my Lexicon reverb unit, then apply them as I wished at the mixing stage through use of a rotary "effects" control. I never even stopped to check if this facility was there... I thought this was recording 101. Right now, my objective is to record the signals flat to the machine, then add effects as I see fit (in varying degrees) to each track. Is this even possible on this machine and if so, how do you guys do it?
