Default Connecting C 24 to a Hearback headphone system

I'm trying to connect the C 24 to a Hearback system and can't figure out the hardware and software connections.

I ran a snake from the C24 line out 1-8 (DB25 port) to a patchbay and then split off 1/2 that signal to the Hearback. Then I added a SEND to channel one in my mix, which has a kick recorded on it. The SEND goes to Analog 1, which I assumed would go out the LINE OUT DB25 cable into the patchbay and into the HearBack.

Anyone know what I did wrong?

Thanks

Default Re: Connecting C 24 to a Hearback headphone system

Hello Paul ...

I use the Hearback system but, in my configuration, it has no connection to the C24. I run optical out from one of my 96io units directly to the Hearback unit.

The 8 optical outputs of the 96io are identified as Phones 1, Phones 2, ... Phones 8 and I use these as Sends for those tracks that go to the Hearback unit.

Depending upon which I/O unit you have, the Hearback could connect directly to it via either analog or optical. There may be no need to connect the Hearback to the C24.

Hope this helps.

Never assume.........anyway, what interface are you using? Since the C24 is a controller, then there really is no reason to connect it to the Hearback system at all. As SpongeBob describes, I would simply feed the Hearback from outputs of the interface(002/003 for an LE setup or 96IO/192IO for HD).

for sure use the out from your interface. I use the adat out of my 96io and it works great. Using the C24 would be a little more difficult to use.

2x 192 here. (24 x 24 analog)
1-6 out for 5.1 monitoring
7-8 out main cue A (PF send F)
9-10 Cue FX-B (PF send G)
11 MM-Cue C (More me mono)(PF send H)
12 MM-Cue D (More me mono)(PF send I)
13-14 MM-Cue E(More me Stereo)(PF send J)
13-14 or 14 only sometimes get used for live foldback situations.

Main Cue Monitoring via monitor ST-1
More me and FX cue monitored from C/24 Line mixer returning ST-2 (Also PFL/AFL)
Note: I'm looking at a Mute or solo mod here or a simple sum - solo outboard.

All the above I'm revisiting on my patchbay for a bit more elegance in the way I CR-Monitor.

My Tracking template is 24 Aux (Bank 1) for recording level rides post remote pre-amps.
24 audio tracks (Bank 2) CR. mix, headphone-cue etc.
Master bank for mu master outputs (CR and Cue).

PS the 1-8 outputs on the c/24 are for the mic/line 1-8 outputs. Likewise for 9-16

You would be absolutely correct IF you didn't want to use the talkback feature on the C/24. I use the Hearback system, but I need the talkback functionality. I am fortunate enough to have 2 - 192s so I route analog 1-8 out to the PT in on the C/24 via DB25 to DB25 snake. Then I use another DB25 to 1/4" female snake coming out of analog 9-16 on the 2nd 192, but since the Hearback hub can only accept 8 ins, I only use 11-16 and use them as "more me" (individual track) sends. I use the cue outputs 1-2 from the C/24 (via DB25 to 1/4" male) as my stereo mix feed (1-2) into the Hearback hub (via DB25 to 1/4" male connected to cue 1-2 out of the C/24 via 1/4" coupler). That gives me talkback, a stereo mix feed in channels 1-2 on the Hearback hub, and six mono "more me" channels that can be adjusted by the artist at the Hearback mixer in the booth.

Now if you only have 1 192io.............well, then I would just do what albee said and get yourself a separate talkback unit. It's just nice to use the features on the C/24 if you can, cuz it is loaded with them. Too bad you have to be a signal path wizardry engineer to make the stuff route properly. What the hell were they thinking making LR 1-3?!?

Just trying to cover all the bases, but make sure that the switch on the front of the Hearback Hub is slid to ADAT and that your session is at 48 or 44.1kHz.
