I also use my set up on parallel processing, I have found a solution using the Advance Mus. Tech. "Missing Link". It allows you to send the "mother signal" out from 2 couples of stereo sends and receive from 2 couples of stereo returns. Consider that the master out passes through a couple of tubes (there are several combinations), so that the digital processing gains warmness and harmonics lost during the digital conversion. I found it really useful. I also know of something like that (with no tubes) from Digital Music Co. but I have been told of quality losses in the signal. Luca.
