Re: Audio path tweakage

Nope, I dont have any eq OR possiblility to add Noisegates into my mixer. Its just a 1U line mixer, noisy as fuck. Thats part of the reason why I want to miss out using its Aux Send to the loopers. I eq all my noise sources in their specific boxes. 2 of them are synth devices only, not too noisy, another is the GR55, noisy dependant on patch, so usually has a volume pedal, mute switch OR the patch Isnt noisy...

But I must admit, that Im looking at a less than ideal situation, The ideal being a 1U mixer with 2 sends.
I just dont have one... simple as that!

Doing so would mean that you will lose the  capability to cut out bad frequecies in all you signals before summing or sending to looprrs. To me that sounds like a big sacrifice. 

Have you applied noise gates at strategic places? Cleaning out noise floor shit transforms the noise into becomimg part of the music, making ot all sound punchier

Once a year I have a bash at trying to clean up my rig, change some cables, work on better audio path, and try to get rid of some more hiss, hum and filth.

So, Question:

Using the maxim "less is more" (a maxim that I abhor and can see no value in whatsoever) I am wondering the following thing.

My rig (simplified) is thus. 

Various Audio Sources >> mixer >> send out >> daisy chain cable to various loopers >> loopers >> mixer.

Therefore, I have the possibility, risking feedback, of looping a looper.

However I NEVER use this function, and was wondering. 
If I simply SPLIT the signal from my various audio devices BEFORE the mixer (passively, just on a patch bay, and go direct into the daisy chain cable to the loopers, NOT via the send, THEN there is one less audio stage the signal must go thru. I will have less level control (currently I have the channel send level controls AND an overall send level control) but I can still set input levels individually on the loopers...

Is this sound Audiowise? Or should this splitting be done with some kinda amp? (Bare in mind that I have no money left (after the Gordius purchase, expected any day) or Rack space, for any other products!
