Helix USB VS Audio Interface (Output/Input Routing)Hey Everyone, So I have a workflow/signal chain question for you all. To start, here's my setup AI: Apogee Quartet Speakers: Yamaha HS8's with Sub DAW: Logic Pro X My question to you, is how should I go about routing? For recording, Should I go directly from the Helix into my DAW via USB, or should I go XLRs out of my Helix, into my Apogee Quartet, and Apogee Quartet into my DAW via USB? Then for standard practicing, should I do one of the above, or go directly from my Helix into my Yamaha HS8s via XLR or 1/4 inch? The problem with using my Helix via USB is that I have multiple microphones going into my Quartet, and having to switch active audio interfaces back and fourth while recording is a hassle. I suppose I could always use Apple's "Aggregate Audio Device" function, but am not confident in its usability. I'd love to figure out a way to make this work as I'd like to be able to use Helix's ramping function. Also, in everything that I've mentioned, do you see a need for me to be using a word clock cable? Thanks,
