Topic: Creating in-ear monitor mixes in TotalMix
I wanted to ask what might turn out to be a dumb question, my apologies if so!
In my band rehearsal studio, we are using UFXII, Octamic and TMFX for monitoring and occasional DAW recording using Studio One, on a powerful Win10 PC. We are a 5 piece rock band, medium loud.
We recently switched to wireless in-ears and are able to create 4 stereo headphones mixes using the 4 phones outputs on UFXII and Octamic. It`s great the detail we are now hearing using stereo ear buds and full control over 4 separate submixes, almost one for each player. Much better than the active floor wedges we have been using til now.
But here`s the problem:
We don't have a sound engineer (!) at our rehearsal studio, so we are all too busy playing instruments or singing to properly create a decent headphone mix. So I want to somehow tweak eq and compress each input in TM FX in order to create really polished headphone mixes. Ideally I want to do this alone, not at rehearsal, to really get the mix right in my own time.
But I can`t do that easily in TM FX, right? Because the inputs are only active when they are being used, i.e. when the band are playing. Of course I could record the band into Studio One and play this back in the DAW, but then my TMFX "inputs" are on the 2nd "software" row, so I can`t make a TM template that would be usable at our next rehearsal.
Have I overlooked a simple answer to this one?
Thanks for your inputs!
