I am considering getting a mixer for band practice. The model I'm looking at (Zoom L-12) has 5 individual submixes meant to be used as headphone monitoring outputs.
What has struck me when I looked at it, was the possibility to reroute the submix back into the mixer again. An example connection could look like this:
The path could work like this:
- Blue: dry guitar signal using High-Z input
- Orange: dry guitar signal again, from the A submix to e.g. amp modeler
- Green: wet guitar signal
- Red: actual main mix
What this gives me is e.g. ability to mix dry/wet guitar signal in main mix, record the dry signal for reamping etc.
Is there anything that would prevent this from working? I know that master outputs can't be used that way because they could form an infinite loop that amplifies the signal, but in this case I could mix that so that the A submix doesn't receive the track 2 at all (to avoid the feedback loop specifically).
