what's the best way to hook up joe meek twin q into mbox2?

Hi guys,

bought the twin q with the idea of just having both channels always connected to my mbox2 and using channel 1 on both for recording bass (direct into the twinq) and channel two for vocals.

Line outs or +4db mic outs on the twinq?

then into line/mic/di input on mbox2?

any opinions welcomed fellas.

Doesn't the Twin Q have digital outs? if so run from the Twin Q into the Mbox through the SPDIF connections.

Otherwise run the line outs of the Twin Q into the Line inputs of the Mbox.

Do not run into the Mbox mic inputs from the Twin Q....

I would also run the joemeek in via s/pdif. I don't know what those converters are like, but I would hope they sound better than the mbox itself.

The biggest advantage i see in this for you is that it gets you 4 channels in, so you don't have to repatch/rewire anything if you need to do a small drum setup or something like that... like you could go o/h's to the joemeek and kick and snare straight to the mbox... or just use the joemeek-s/pdif for your go-to tracks.

remember to select the joemeek as the converter source in pro tools for the A to D.
