1 Why I man!

Just joined as i have just spent a couple of hours ripping my studio apart and wanted some fresh approaches. The setup is:

3.6 ghz processor with M-Audio delta soundcard... hmmm.
Cubase SX.
Behringer desk 24/8.
Behringer Autocom
Behringer Virtualiser (no I didn't used to work for Behringer)
Zoom Studio 1204 Effects
Emu ESI 4000 sampler .... grandad
Roland M-BD1 bass modulator
Proteus 2000 synth and Korg X5DR.

Dynaudio BM6A Monitors.
Audio Technica Condensor Mic
Couple of SM58's.


I especially need some tips with the Autocom to get the best out of it....

I make mainly warm jazz fusion tracks with some vocals.

Any suggestions?
I'd probably use it as two separate compressors when I track.....

When I try to mix the final track through the Autocom I can only get a mono signal...

How can I avoid this.... or do I need another compressor?
You would take the left signal into one side of the compressor, the right signal into the other, press the "Couple" switch, and both sides will be controlled by the controls for Channel 1.

If you're mixing on a computer, I'd master and compress with software, though. I would only use the outboard compressor for tracking instruments or vocals, and then only sparingly.

Thanks for the advice....

After taking the compressor out of the equasion I managed to mix the track much better and got some great results from my software.
