View Full Version : Using an outboard FX unit with MOTU 2408 mkII

I was wondering how I can use my Digitech Studioquad effects unit with my MOTU system? I want to try and use the reverbs on some of my drum samples instead of using the stock DP reverb as it doesn't sound very good on drums. Can I do this? I'm using the 2408 mk II. I would also like to know this in the future in case I decided to buy a nice Lexicon reverb rack. Thanks, Dave

Here's what I've done.
After tracks are recorded, assign each track to an aux, or bus, which is assigned to an analog output on the 2408. 3-8 would work best as you're monitoring 1-2. Send the signal through your EFX unit, back to an input on your 2408.
Set a track or 2 to record the EFX into your DAW.
I wouldn't recommend monitoring the EFX that way, but if you've got a project board, that would help with the monitoring.
Hope you got all that.
