How to use CUE ???

Post by SimonAbsent » Tue Feb 21, 2012 11:18 am

Hi Forum :-)

I make music mainly with headphones and using an APC40.
I have the main out of my audio-interface (Fireface400) connected to my headphone amp.
I would like to be able to change the volume of me headphones thru the CUE-LEVEL poti on the APC40.
Problem is that I can only do this by switching every channel on my set to CUE by hand.

Example: Initially I thought I could just send Master to 1&2 and Headphones to 3&4 - then ajust 3&4 with the CUE poti.

Doesnt seem to be that simple...

Does anyone know a sollution?

Thank You!

That would be correct.

The CUE output is for separate headphone monitoring to the main output. it isn't designed to be used as a main output. If it's just a case of wanting to use that spcific knob for adjusting the listning level can't you just map it to the main volume? Would seem strange to want to just have the main output thru the cue output because you would loose your main volume level meter.
