I want to be able to record my guitar into my OP-1F in 2 channels simultaneously: one via condenser mic and one direct/line input. is this possible with the CM-15 combined with the TX-6?
The OP-1F can only record one track at a time, but I think you could do this with a little bit of craftiness.
It depends on what you desire doing with the signal.
If you use the TX-6 (or any mixer) you can mix the 2 signals you want (DI and Mic), but you’ll only be able to record to the OP-1F as one stereo track. Fortunately, with the TX-6 you can control the mix of the two signals, add effects, eq, etc.
But if you don’t need any control, a work around without the TX-6 could be:
Record to an OP-1F Track using the line input with a L/R splitter cable.
this will record a hard left panned signal (ie. your DI) and a hard right panned signal (your mic’d guitar)
provided you’re ok with them both being mono.
Then in the OP-1F you can use the mixer to pan the track hard to one side to get that signal, and resample it to the center of another track, etc.
extremely helpful thank you for these awesome ideas. the wrinkle is my mic needs phantom power. so i currently have an Apogee One usb audio interface and an Ear Trumpet Edwina condenser mic, and was hoping that i could safely power the Apogee interface with the OP1F and have the Apogee provide phantom power to the mic, but i worry about that somehow damaging my Op1F.
the CM15 having a battery is very very alluring to me but the tx6 doesn’t appear to have any guitar 1/4in inputs. unless i can toggle the tx6 settings to accept mono (and use the appropriate adapter) it might not quite work.
lots of things i’m pondering atm
