i don´t see the benefit of converting the signal so many times, does not should degrade the signal with all this conversion ?? + why? has the two buss summing mixer a special color that is rereally revelant or important for the mix, i don´t believe you really gonna get an analogue sounding this way cause you still reconverting the signal to digital, just come to listen an old 45 RPM rockabilly vinyl through an old tunrtable with crappy speakers and really Fab, the sounds is complete different on the todays recordings lot more warm, outstanding reverbs + ¨EMOTION¨ can´t be replicate today

Hi Fab. Thank you for another great video. Like "android" above, I'd love to know if 16 channels gives the instruments more breathing space and sounds better.

FAB! What a cool diagram and the way that you explain this. It goes from "OH MY GOD, I will NEVER understand this!"~~to~~"Oh, okay, now I get it!" because of your step by step explanation. Thank you so much for helping me understand how to set this up, especially the 'input monitoring' because my track does not have that 'I' button next to the record button and I must rely on the track menu K button deally. (deally is a technical term) Thanks for being there for us, FAB! Becky Jo Benson

@jochen1968: there is a 95 minute mixing indie pop in Cubase video coming right up. @Android: the first 8 channels give you the best impact and then every 8 after that is incrementally better. Id say an 8 channel interface and a D-Box is the perfect way to get into it. When your ears and skill set outgrow that, you an add a 2Buss LT + more converters to the system.

Is there a significant difference in summing 8 channels vs 16? Is it a "more is better" typed thing or will the benefits of analog summing still be applicable when summing only 8 channels? I ask because I've recently purchased an interface with 8 outs and I'm debating if I should get the D-Box and benefit from it's other facilities or the 2-Bus LT so that I could expand the interface to 8 more channels of DA into it later. If 8 is perceptible then the D-Box it is but if "more is better" I'll opt for the 2-Bus or 2-Bus LT.
