Hi all,
I will be recording our first live show on a 24.4.2 and I am looking for Advice on the DigOut selection?
End result from the show is to then mix down in Studio One Pro.
It would seem that you would want to adjust final EQ, Effects, etc. when mastering and capture the initial tracks raw ( DigOut option would be left off).
Where I need some help is in confirming that to be true.
If the DigOut option is active, them all Fat settings are recorded as well?
I would love to hear the voice of experience
Thanks,
John

Correct on the Dig Out switch. "Off" and the mixer inputs are sent straight to the computer, and the returns from the computer (firewire button on) are sent to the mixer's channel eq&dynamics. "On" and the output from the mixer channel eq&dynamics are sent to the computer, and the returns from the computer (firewire button on) are sent straight to the mixer's channel faders.

Note: Dig Out on also means that any live changes to eq&dynamics will go to the recording too. Very difficult to anticipate in post-production.

Thank you!
Am I safe to assume then that you would record the show with the DigOut option Off?
(That way you woudn't be tryong to re-EQ your live EQ, for an exanple)
Thanks.... John

When the recording is intended for DAW processing then I can't think of any reason for turning DigOut on. Well maybe one: when your live sound guy is a genius and your DAW sound guy stinks

You can also document your FAT channel settings, and duplicate them after the fact on the FAT channel plug in S1 pro. I agree that its better to leave the processing for later. You set the board most times to sound good in the room, but that doesn't always mean that the mix is portable. Some live processing decisions are harder to overcome.
