I have a feeling the idea that "there is no such thing as a stupid question" will be put to the test here. I’m in the middle of learning Max, and developing a simple looper, too. I thought it would be nice to introduce an analogue mixer into the equation, but want to confirm that this would be possible. I have a Saffire Pro 24, which has plenty of outputs for what I need.
hm. sure audio out(saffire)-> mixer in.
Mixer sum out/aux out/group out whatever -> audio in (saffire)..
You might want to use inserts also.
I don’t know. plenty of options here. I don’t understand the question or you should just start playing around with audio engineering/do some online course or whatever.
Berklee just recently offered a free online course on music production that also covered some audio engineering.
