I was wondering if someone had more insight to a problem Ive had most times when recording, even in the past but just continue to deal with it and get the recording done.

So the problem is if I'm recording many tracks and have a few xlr inputs,say for my drums, and use the trim to get a good level and the input mixer faders are set to zero, which is what it wants.

How can i make a good monitor mix for just the headphones while playing and recording, if i can only adjust the headphones level since the input mixer is what i would have to use to control the levels for monitoring, but they have to be at 0 ?

I hope this makes sense lol
thank's Chris.

I'd try routing the input channels to the recording track channels, arm them for recording, and adjust the track channel volume faders.

Ok thanks for your help, just wondering how i would do that? would i use ez routing to do that in, like dragging the virtual patch cables somewhere ?

By default the routing is set up so that input 1 goes to track 1, input 2 to track 2 and so on. So unless you need to change that just arm the track for record and you should be able to hear whatever is on that input.

If you want input 1 to go to track 4 then yes, you will need to change the routing. Do this on the track section of the routing view, not the input section.

I always clear all tracks and then manually put the routing where i want it to go by dragging the lines with the mouse.

Hi thanks for the help, i realize how to connect the patch cables in the Ez routing i know that part.

But like i said it seems that to get a good mix in the monitoring part headphones etc ,you need more control over it but that's hard to do if you don't have anything recorded yet since you adjust the trim for the mic, then the input mixer has to be set to 0db so you can't really control the sound at this point.

I was thinking of getting another mixer and then run direct outs to the vs-2480 but this is a huge cost since not all mixers have individual direct outs.

So this is why i was asking if there is some way to do this without me spending more money on a new mixer.

this is why keeppracticing is telling you to use the track mixer section to control you headphone mix. Re-read what he's suggesting and try that.

KP has suggested the easiest route...another way (perhaps only slightly more complex) would be routing the inputs in use to their own AUX send and use that for an independent headphone mix, separate from the mix you're building on the track faders...will come in handy if say the drummer want's to hear a click track, but not everyone in the group wants it in their HP mix.

Sorry if I just muddied up the effort even more. Get out the manual and put'er in 4-LOW!
