I always ask for clarification as it is a bit difficult to understand how to best configure everything.
As @Mike says I could bypass the DBX 286 with the appropriate button, so at this point the dbx would only use it as a microphone phantom power interface.
Mike also says that he DOESN’T BYPASS the dbx so he uses it by recording an audio already with hi-pass, compressor, gate, limiter (this audio will then be reprocessed with the same effects in the audition, so a double hi-pass, compressor etc? ?)
Let’s say we have a configuration like MIKE’s,
Condenser MIC, Signature 12mtk, dbx286 —> PC
if i have to bypass the dbx using it only as a phantom amplifier, at this point i could not connect the microphone directly to the phantom of the signature 12mtk mixer?
If I have to use the dbx with its “filters” in a light way since then everything will be processed by audition, at this point I would not be able to use the compressor, the hi-pass and the phantom of the mixer so as to completely exclude the purchase of the dbx286 ??
Basically from what I understand and do not understand, from the things said by MIKE and the ever-present @markdenholm if I don’t have LIVE needs, the DBX286 processor what would I need ??
(It is certainly qualitatively better than the Signature 12’s internal compression processors etc., but if I have to bypass it, what do I need the dbx for?)
