Topic: 7.1 Surround Monitor Control
New to RME interfaces - I am shortly to take delivery of a FireFace802 and ARC.
I run 5.1 monitoring out of ProTools, through a BlueSky BM1 monitor controller. I wish to take it out of the signal chain, as it is pretty noisy (adding a fair amount of hiss and hum to the signal chain).
On my current setup (Motu Ultralite Hybrid + CueMixFX) you can control the level of the 8 main outputs in a variety of configurations (stereo, quad, 5.1, 7.1), from one "pot" on CueMix.
Reading through the manual for TotalMix, I noticed with interest the new "Monitor section".
Using the ARC, is it possible to control the level of the main 8 analogue outputs, and program calibrated settings, for TV, DVD or Cinema mixing?
Many thanks for any suggestions. The reason I am asking before I even take delivery is that I need to make the changeover as seamless and quick as possible!
