Aux Sends & Returns

Post  Neil B on Tue Mar 10, 2009 2:18 am

Now I know that this isn't a bug, but I'm wondering how you folks handle the Aux in Omni.
It also applies to Stylus RMX and I expect it'll be the same for Trilian too.

If I have a selection of patches in the Omni mixer, I usually set them to Out A, Out B, Out C and so on.
Now the manual states that the Out A is the main out for these synths.

Let's say that I have an arp patch routed to Out D and apply a bit of reverb to it on Aux B, then the return of the reverb comes through Out A.

So, if you have a patch assigned to Out A, it is mixed with all the Aux return signals.
For me I find it a bit awkward when it comes to mixing a song, setting the levels by soloing individual tracks first, and then finding the returns are unbalancing the mix.

How do you guys work?
Do you assign your patches from B, C etc and simply leave Out A as the return?

I'm sure Hans has a lot of experience in this area...........

Just wondering folks

Taking this a stage further, if a song is at the final mixing stage, say in Cubase
Each track is on it's own mixer channel strip.
If I want to apply a bit of eq for instance to the patch on OUT A, then I'll be adding eq to all the aux returns won't I?

Add another Omnisphere. It chocs up your Cubase Mixer but at least this would sort out the problem.
