It has been emphasized many times here that the DM can route anything to anything and that there isn't one right way to setup your configuration. As a contribution to the discussions, here's my setup as an example. It works well for me and maybe there are elements in it that can work for others. I mix mainly OTB, though I do use some plugins in my DAW (Cubase version 4!).


- Studio inputs 1-24 are routed to ch 1-24, Buss 1-24 to FW output 1-24 (faders at 0 dB). That way I can route any studio input to any DAW track using the Assign buttons.
- Outputs from the DAW return on ch 25-48. The mix is fed back into the DAW on Output 25-26.
- On the mix track, plugins are applied for mastering purposes. The output is fed back into the DAW using Outputs 27-28 (input bypass), to create the master track in the DAW.
- Monitoring is done on the Stereo buss, except for the master track. This track returns on ch 63-64, which are not connencted to the Stereo buss (to prevent feedback), but are monitored on Aux 11-12.
- Studio monitoring through the Studio outputs. These outputs are also fed to ch 53-54, which are not connected to the Stereo buss, but via Aux 6 to an amplifier in the studio. This allows monitoring through speakers in the studio with a talkback option.
- Channel signals are fed back into ch 59-60 (loopback) through Aux 5, using a small delay and phase inversion. This emulates a mid/side effect on any channel by turning up the Aux 5 Pod.
