ES8 Standalone direct monitoring option request

Post by bmoussay » Fri Apr 26, 2019 7:08 am

Hello Wigglers, hello Sleepers,

I eventually received my ES-8 recently and I'm so happy with it. Works like a charm, bravo!!

I have a simple request about the standalone mode:
Would it be possible to setup a direct monitoring option (from the mac audio/midi setup screen) to send inputs any input to any output directly (like 8 faders below each input to set send levels or a small 4x8 matrix RME-like), and that the ES-8 "remembers" this setting while in standalone mode? (like the "direct monitoring" function of most audio cards)

It would allow to:
- mult a signal from one in to x outs
- mix several signals
- make flexible audio routing (sends, auxes, etc...)
- send for example 4 sources to ES8 4ins for computer recording, listen to those sources with for example ES8 out 1-2 (patched to modular stereo out/headphones). This is already possible via software monitoring of course, but with the option requested above, it would still work without computer (no need of repatching, using mults or stackcables), and without latency.
- etc...

Best,

Benjamin

Thanks for your reply os.
Do you think it's doable?
Is there any update plans for the ES-8?
Best,

B.

Hello os,

Just wanted to know if anything was planned about this « direct monitoring and routing » option discussed above.

Thanx in advance,
Best

B
