I want to connect a 2 channel (mono) mic preamp (ART TPS II) to my 16.4.2ai mixer through the Aux In A/B channels. I have set Aux Routing so that Aux 19/20 is aux in a left/right and Aux 20/21 is aux in b left/right. Channel 1 from mic preamp (mono) is connected to left of aux in a and Channel 2 from mic preamp (mono) is connected to left of aux in b. My thought was I get 18 channels of input, without the need of a patch panel or the external mic preamp going through channel 1-16 pre amp. I use the board to record only, no live shows. My monitor mix for artists is AUX outputs 1/2 (stereo linked in pre2 mode) to inputs (L/R) of head phone amp. I use the CR outputs for control room speakers (solo mode CR) and Mains Out L/R for live room monitoring. The problem I have is a "latency" or "delay" in headphones, only on the Aux In A/B channels. The digital returns from computer on for channels 1-16 are fine when a mic is used to record vocals on channels 1-16.
I use the board as an interface at 48khz/24bit, monitor mix for headphones during recording, UC 2.0 to control monitor mix on PC screens and fat channel for gates and HPF. Even with all fat channel features off the problem exists. I have pro tools 12.7 and have used the pro tools template (PT-SL16.ptt) from Presonus with no luck. The 16.4.2ai firmware is 1.0.9194.
Curious to know if there are others out there using this mixer for recording and what sources they have used for setup info.
