The routing matrix includes two main sections.

'FROM' includes all physical and virtual INPUTS of your device.
'TO' includes all physical and virtual OUTPUTS of your device.
Drag and drop from the 'FROM' to the 'TO' section. Select multiple channels by holding the 'SHIFT' button and clicking with the mouse.


'COMP PLAY' is what comes out of the computer (YouTube, Spotify, DAW, etc.). 'COMP PLAY 1&2' is the MAIN OUT of the computer (YouTube, Spotify, DAW, etc.). 'COMP REC' is what goes to your computer. It's what is recorded in the DAW.
NOTE: 'COMP REC' will be called differently depending on your device. It could be also called 'TB REC' or 'USB REC'.

'AFX IN' is what is send to the 'EFFECTS' section in the control panel.
'AFX OUT' is what comes out of the 'EFFECTS' section of the control panel.NOTE: Everything sent to 'AFX IN' will automatically come out from the 'AFX OUT' section from the corresponding channels.


There are 4 'MIX CHANNELS' in the matrix. 'MIX CHANNELS' are great for managing a large number of channels. Everything that is sent to the 'MIX CHANNELS' is summed in the 'MIX L/R' section.


How To Record Without The AFX In The DAW (Monitor with AFX)

In order to record without the AFX (but only monitor the effected signal) please do the following routing :


I.      PREAMP —>  COMP/TB/USB RECORD   (This allows you to record inside your DAW)

II.     PREAMP —> AFX In —> AFX Out —> MIX CH 1 —> MIX 1 L/R —> MONITOR
                                   COMP PLAY 1, 2 —>  MIX CH 1 —> MIX 1 L/R —> MONITOR


This means that the 'PREAMP' will go into the 'EFFECTS' section, then it will automatically go out from 'AFX OUT'.

Then the effected signal from 'AFX OUT'  needs to be routed to one of the 4 MIX CHANNELS -

MIX CH 1, 2, 3 or 4. This is done in order to send the effected channels for playback straight away.
Everything that goes to the MIX CHANNELS is automatically summed at the corresponding
MIX L/R sections.

We need to route 'COMPUTER PLAY 1, 2' to 'MIX CH1' as well, since this is the MAIN OUT from the DAW. This way we will have both the effected channels + the MAIN OUT from the DAW going to 'MIX CH 1', which, as we already described is automatically summed in the 'MIX L/R' sections. This is done so that the MAIN OUT of the DAW is also monitored if necessary without further routing in the matrix to be required. 'MIX L/R'  is then routed to 'MONITOR' or 'HP1', 'HP2'.  All that is left to do is mute channels in the DAW when recording and unmute when listening back.

How To Record With The AFX In The DAW With Zero Latency Monitoring


In order to record the AFX inside your DAW:

                                                         

I.  PREAMP  —> AFX IN —> AFX OUT  —>  COMP/TB/USB RECORD

II.  AFX OUT  —>  MIX CH 1,2,3,4 —> MIX L/R, 1,2,3,4 —>  MONITOR

III.  COMP PLAY 1, 2 —>  MIX CH 1,2,3,4 —> MIX L/R, 1,2,3,4 —>  MONITOR


This means that the 'PREAMP' will go into the 'EFFECTS' section, then it will automatically go out from 'AFX OUT'. Then the effected signal from 'AFX OUT'  needs to be routed to 'COMP/TB/USB RECORD' in order to be send to the DAW. 'AFX OUT' is also send to 1 of the 4 MIX CHANNELS in order to be monitored with zero latency from the Antelope device and not the DAW. Everything that goes to the 'MIX CHANNELS' is automatically summed at the corresponding 'MIX L/R' sections. Then this signal is routed to the 'MONITOR' section. 'COMP PLAY 1, 2' is routed to 'MIX CH1 as well, since this is the MAIN OUT from the DAW and this would allow to monitor it as well without further routing to be required. All that is left to do is mute the channels in the DAW when recording (so that we monitor with zero latency from the device) and unmute when listening back.
