R: Audio routing
Hi. One thing I found recently (it is used, but in almost mint condition)
an old(?) AKAI midi programmable audio patch bay. A friend of mine uses one
of them and he is really glad of this unit. I think it is called MP80, but
I'm not really sure of it. I think I'll buy it just to use with my mixer,
my Behringer has only two sends, and I already use both of them. I have
recently bought a Digitech Studio Twin (I think its name is tsr24), and I
found I didn't know where to patch it, as I already have an akai headrush
that goes into a Boss vf-1 on a send and an edp that goes into a Korg A1 on
the other one, but it was damn cheap, it has some great reverbs and delays,
so I had to get one. And I use all the four groups on my mixer for
multitrack recording, so a patch bay should be the only solution (without
changing the mixer, obviously).
P.S. I'm going to London in a week or two. Anyone knows of some good
concerts there (involving looping, obviously...)?
