I've asked this question in a different way a while back, didn't get my issue resolved, and now I really need to figure something out. When our band has practice, I have been using my recording interface into Cubase and then out L/R to my live mixer. This works ok, I get pretty good recordings, but have no controls working with my live mixer. I'd like to be able to split all the XLR signals with something like this http://cgi.ebay.com/4-PACK-5-Feet-S...217?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20b44cb819 I've tried to use the inserts on my mixer to feed my interface, with suprising results. The signal to the live board is reduced, but not cut completly, so this might work, but once I stop using the inserts, gains would have set again, dont' really want to mess with that. I'd like to set the mixer & interface & be done. A split snake was discussed in a previous thread, but I can't spend $200-$300 for this. What do you think?
