Separate Audio for Live use
I'm getting ready to perform live (using the Deluge) and I just wanted to throw out a kind of question to those who also use the Deluge live. I'm using both the drum kit and synth engine simultaneously, and want to really separate these sounds for better clarity live (sometimes things get "muddy" if there's a lot going through 1 audio channel). I'm going to be going DI with the drum kit, and into an amp for the synth engine. What I've done is a hard pan left to all the drum tracks and used the Left output to go DI with the drums, and a hard pan right for all the synth tracks and used the Right output to go into my amp. With stereo style effects applied to different tracks, sometimes this means effects will come in and out of the opposite channels (it's not extreme - pretty manageable). I'm just curious to hear how others treat their live setup and if anyone else has tried to separate sound in this manner. I've seen the 1010Music Blackbox coming out in May has 4 audio outputs (which is nice!), but not nearly as capable or intuitive to me as the Deluge. Are there are some other workarounds I'm not aware of to achieve better separation, fidelity and clarity? How does everyone treat their signals live?
Peacefully and Curiously,
