The stereo output is routed to a 2-track recorder (this can be your DAW if you don’t have a specific device), and then the outputs of the 2-track recorder are returned to the Ext Monitor Source Select so you can monitor the final master buss signal. You may also wish to hook up things like ipod docks or turntables to the other Ext Inputs to be able to listen to reference material.
There are three pairs of speaker outputs which are selected by the monitor select, and controlled by the monitor level rotary stepped attenuator. The switches are inter-locked so that only one pair of speakers may be on at a time. The Mon 3 switch however can be made to “latch” by holding the button for 2 seconds such that you may use Mon 3 at the same time as either Mon 1 or 2. This is useful for setting up a mono or stereo subwoofer system, or as a way to pipe monitor signal into the cutting room or a separate listening area.
5059s Mixing into 5060
|In the “5059’s Mixing into a 5060” configuration, 32 separate mono channels can be fed into two 5059’s for level, pan, and insert control (16 ch. for one 5059). You can create four stem mixes with the two 5059s, which can each have their own silk / texture settings and level of mix buss drive. These stems can then be processed further using the inserts on channels 1-8, which can be returned to the return, or in parallel to Ch. 9-24. They can also be run through processing via a patchbay between the 5059 line outs and the 5060 inputs. You may still send an additional eight stems from the DAW through the DAC and into the 5060 for the final analogue mix.|
5059’s Creating Auxes and Mixing into a 5060
|In the “5059’s Creating Auxes and Mixing into a 5069” configuration, 5059’s are configured to add aux functionality to a 5059 / 5060 mix system by daisy chaining the insert sends to the line inputs on another 5059 or 5060 and using the stereo 1 & 2 outs as the aux masters. For configurations with more than 16 channels, you will need to use 2-4 channels for each additional 5059 (every 16ch) to link the aux busses between units. If you would like the same processing on both the aux path and the mix path it needs to be inserted before the line ins on the “aux” 5059. For the 5059s creating the stereo stems into the 5060, the configuration is identical to the “5059s Mixing into a 5060” example.|
