My Behringer X2442USB has a feature called Insert I/O. I understand what Behringer has to say about this feature but now how to use it.
From the manual,
- Insert points enable the processing of a signal with dynamic processors or equalizers. They are sourced pre-fader, pre-EQ and pre-aux send. Detailed information on using insert points can be found in chapter 5.3.
- Unlike the X2442USB, the X1622USB, X1832USB and X2222USB have their insert points located on the rear of the console.
The manual also says this about Main Insert,
- These are the insert points for the main mix. In the signal path, they are post-main mix amp, but pre-main fader(s). Use them to insert, for example, a dynamics processor or graphic equalizer. Please also note the information on insert points in chapter 5.3.
But, why how do they work. I'd like to use an Alessi 3632 Vocal Compressor? Is this an ideal application of a Insert? What sends out to the compressor, what returns from from the compressor (ports on the X2442)?
