MOTU Track 16 Outboard Gear Help

I spent over an hour on the phone with Sweetwater tech support, and they literally gave up on me.

I'm trying to patch in a stereo set of compressors, and I cannot get it to work.

It produces a really thin sound, and I know it's not the compressors because they were working fine with my Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6, just a few weeks back.

It's patched correctly in Logic, but CueMix must have something wrongly patched.

So, please, help me.

It almost sounds like a phase issue, if that matters.

It'll patch through the compressors on bypass just fine and the outputs fed into the inputs, too.

However, the compressor not in bypass does that.

There's nothing wrong with the compressor. It's recently been serviced, and I was using it fine with another interface.

The Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6 works fine with it. Recording the compressor on the way in does fine. But patching it is doesn't really work. Like it sounds unusable, harsh, and then.


I thought you have to so something with Cuemix. Can you share your settings preset?

It looks like your inputs are muted. Do you have the channels muted you have your inputs coming in on?

Not the channels in my DAW, no.

So in mute everything?

I think I tried unmuting a few, but it didn't do anything.

I'll try, this afternoon. Any other suggestions would be great.

Unmuting everything only caused everything to be doubled or trippled. It was still the same, harsh, unusable sound.

Yeah, I think it is. The buses differ, though, I believe.

But unmuting definitely didn't help. On one of the bus options, it caused feedback in conjunction with the thin sound.

Oh, and be sure to check the MOTU Audio setup. That may affect it, as well. Thanks for the help, by the way, guys.
