BAB414 Posted November 6, 2013 Report Share Posted November 6, 2013 Hey guys, I've yet to try this out as I like to wait a little while before updating my machine with any new firmware but I wanted to see if there was any reason not to do the following: Already owning both devices, I was thinking it would be great to use inputs 1-5 in the 552 to send to channels/tracks 7-11 in the 664 instead of going out and buying the Cl-6. Go line level prefade out on each channel and use the link port to send postfader sources to the mix tracks on the 664. Although you can only do this with five instead of six additional channels, and it would be somewhat bulky and more power hungry, is there any reason not to do this/something I'm missing? What seems great about this is that each channel gets independent hard trim, fader, pan and low cut filters, you can send mic level to the 552 inputs, with phantom, and create a sub-mix without using one of your X tracks. Are the 552 preamps the same as those in the 664, or at least similar-sounding? I've yet to do an A/B test. What level does the link port send/receive? Line level? Am I adding any noise to the signal path? Anything else you can think of that would need to be resolved? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
