Hi,

Here is the setup: Layla 24/96 (stereo out) ---->Manley Pultec ---->Manley Vari-MU ----->Apogee PSX-100 ----->Alesis Masterlink (for CD burning).

Any suggestion on the chain order or any advice. Thanks in advance !!

You can try using your apogee D/A going into your analog gear to see if you get better results.

I almost always compress after eq.

Hi again,

I might be stupid but what I wrote on my first topic, the compression is after the EQ isn't it ?

Thanks,
Richard

Michael,

If I go analog first with the Apogee, wouldn't the Masterlink do the Digital conversion at the end ?

Thanks !

does the psx 100 allow you to operate the A/D and D/A seperately? if not, you can see how it differs using different converts in different combinations and see if it works better. but first see if you can use it independently.

You are RIGHT !! It can work indepently (on paper anyway). I will give it a try. Thanks again Michael, it is appreciated.
