Default Add MTRX to Omni for 24 Outs?

My studio presently has an Omni HD and an 8.1 speaker system. I am exploring entering the world of Dolby Atmos and want to add an MTRX Studio. Although it is non-standard, I would like to develop toward an 8.1.8 speaker system. The 16 analogue outs of the MTRX leaves me 1 short of the 17 analogue outs needed.

My question is, is it possible to incorporate the 8 analogue outs on the Omni with the MTRX for a total of 24 analogue outs? Is there any extra hardware needed?

Greetings,

Don't forget that MTRX Studio also has a set of TRS outputs which could be used along side the 16 DB25 line outs.


best,


Jeff

You could get 2 channels if you run the Omni as standalone (don't hook the digilink) after setting up the mixer part. Connect HD Omni ADAT to MTRX Studio, route Omni Mixer tab to monitor outputs.

But the better solution (and more direct) is Jeff's. Use the monitor outputs (1/4" TRS) on the MTRX Studio along with the 16 line-outs on the DB-25. And if you needed 2 more channels, use the headphone outs. They are all independent converters (as you can see in DADman under DA)
