Re: yamaha n12 vs n8 vs rme fireface...plus more..
if you look on the rear of the n8/12, you see only the last 2 channels (actually 2 dual-channels) are stereo channels, the rest are all mono...say if i have several synths, and i need all the 12 inputs on the mixer, and i am using L and R outputs from 1 synth to input B and insert I/O on channel 1, does that act like a stereo channel? i doubt it, because it is a mono channel....what is the differrence between ‘input B’ and ‘insert I/O’...they are both 1/4” jacks!
You can plug Left channel of a Synth to, say Channel 1 of n12. Pan it hard left. Then plug in Right channel of the synth to Channel 2, and pan it hard right.
In Cubase “ VST Connections “ you can setup a stereo channel using Channel 1 as L and Channel 2 as R “
last question, if i want to use channel 1 and 2 as two separate inputs from the same synth (L for 1 and R for 2), how can i ‘lock’ the faders of the 2 channels (like i can on my m-audio firewire interface), so i can adjust the volume equally as one could on a stereo channel?
For that to happen, you need Motorized faders. Unfortunately thats not on offer with the n series. If you can live without Automation on the console, n series will work really good for you.
As the name suggests, n - series is for i N tegration, while O series ( O1x ) is for Aut O mation.
