If the subject heading wasn't long enough, I try to explain further :roll:

I have a small mixing desk that I'm using to record into a DAW.

However, it would be nice to have a bit of reverb on the vocals - a compressor/limiter would also be useful. I mean LIVE (as you hear it) and not after the event in the DAW. I've looked into external box solutions, but this sort of gear is becoming stupid expensive.

So, I'm thinking that because the MODX has the A/D input, whether I could use it, for example, to output a vocal from my mixer AUX, (let's say to a simple reverb) and then return to my mixer?

Just thinking....?

Hi Steve

So If I got this right you wan to run your mic into the mixer and then out to the A/D input of the MODX and use it's effects on your vocal?

You are using the Mackie Onyx 820i mixer I think so that does not have on-board effects hence why you are wanting to go through the MODX?

As you know you can apply effects to anything that comes in through the A/D input so I think yes that would work. Also you could just go out of your mixer into a reverb/multi-effects unit and return into the mixer. Either way would do the job.
