asked May 4, 2016 in Capture for StudioLive by ronnietaylor (220 points)
New RM 32 user. I need to record 22 channels at a live show. Not all of these inputs (bass guitar, horns) need to be in the FOH mix, but I need them on my recording. How do I set up in UC and Capture to assure good strong levels that I can go back and mix later in Studio One? Is this an aux routing issue? Forgive me if this is basic stuff, I am a newbie.

Fortunately with the RM32, it will pass the signal on to Capture regardless of where the channel is pulled up for the live show.  You will still need to set the gain for the channel to ensure a healthy signal is being sent to Capture.

You would also want to ensure that each channel is set to "Pre" and not "Post" next to the gain control.  This will pass the unprocessed signal to Capture before any EQ or other processing that you might be using for the live show.

Hope this helps and good luck!
