Topic: Loopback pre- or post-fader, what's your favourite?
For my personal taste the pre-fader implementation has the highest benefit, because by this you can still use the mute buttons on the outputs without impacting/canceling loopback operation.
I think it would be cool if the loopback operation in TM FX would default to pre-fader for all interfaces and on top of that be switchable between pre- and post fader if this would be possible from technical perspective.
I assume the implementation is not trivial, most likely the firmware and TM FX would need to be changed for the switching part if this would/could ever be implemented.
But, what's your opinion? In which "mode" do you see most advantages for your work / your use cases?
Here a diagram to make the two different implementations more clear:
Not that you wonder, I copy/pasted the mute button from TM FX and placed it into the block diagram over the symbol for the output fader to make clear, that mute operation is also behind the fader symbol.
Currently pre/post fader is implemented on the following interfaces (some examples):
pre-fader: UFX, UC, UCX, UCX II
post-fader: BBF *, Digiface USB, MADIface Pro/XT, UFX II/+
