I am using my MOTU 828 as my audio input and output for MainStage. When using a mike in channel 1 in on the MOTU, the signal comes directly into my output 1-2 channel strip in MS. This is a problem when using the vocoder and channel 1 as a sidechain input as I don't want any of the "dry" signal in the mix at all.


I used to have an older version of MS but I just got the latest version of MS. I can remember doing a couple of live shows with the old version and this very same concert/song/setup and not having this problem. Am I missing something here?

    Hi there,


    I don´t seem to understand your question? Is it only a problem of choosing the right output? Or u need you voice with some effect (like reverb ou delay)? Or something else?

    At the bottom of the channel strip, you can click on "Output 1/2" (or whichever output is selected), and select No Output.


    The channel should go into your EVOC side chain, but nowhere else. The clean signal shouldn't be coming through at all.


    RSVP if this answers your question.
