Default Re: HUI and D-command?

My full tracking setup has 3 talkback mics(#1 in CR, #2 over the drums and #3 in the main tracking room) all feeding separate AUX tracks in my session. All feed all 6 headphone mixes and 2/3 feed the main outs(so I hear them in the CR). You might also insert compression and EQ(for hi-pass). Check it out as you might prefer, this even if the old method still works
I used muteomatic before, it's cool, but it doesn't have the ability open the listenback mic only on mutes rather in play, or record. With the punchlight setup I can still hear whoever is in the recording room during play, and the listenback mic only mutes when I hit record. Also full communication continues with no daw loaded.

Additionally I have a number of people working in my room and if talkback/listenback just works automatically it really saves me a lot of hassle of making sure they implement those tracks correctly in their templates. Plus it works with any other daw...
