Avid’s Jeff Kormar hosts a round of ‘Coffee & Consoles’, focusing on how to make the most of MTRX and MTRX Studio in this video.
Naturally, DADman is a paramount and very central part of achieving that, and apart from the Pro Tools-specific mentions, you can more or less apply most of the session to DAD AX32 and Penta 720 / 721s Series as well.
This session examines the concepts of signal flow and I/O patching and monitoring with the MTRX and MTRX Studio products.
Understanding and managing the PRO | MON monitoring environment in DADman, whether for stereo or Dolby Atmos workflows, is a critical part of working with the MTRX devices.
Some creative and unconventional uses for Fold Downs, Talkback, and Monitor paths are also explored.
