Default Talkback MTRX DADman direct output?

I'm currently setting up a MTRX, S1 and Dock to work with Talkback.

I've set up DADman as per Jeff's video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7Mj3tSEfXc


This routes the TB mic to a track in Pro tools with the Input Monitor activated (then out to Headphones via a send).

Can a talkback mic be routed directly to a headphone output without going through Pro tools?

Yes. You do it in DADman mon profile setup. You can assign to outputs for what they get in regards to talkback (and dimming when talkback is activated.) It's on a right-click menu.

Hi BScout. Thanks for confirming this should be possible. I've been trying to figure this out for a few days.

I think the issue is that I'm currently using a HD I/O for the line outputs. I'm waiting for a new DA expansion card for the MTRX so the HD I/O is a workaround for now.

The HD I/O is connected to the second port of the HD Native Thunderbolt device. So I'm thinking that's why I can only get TB when I route through Pro Tools.

Do you think it would help if I connected the HD I/O to the secondary port of the MTRX?

No.

The Pro Mon section only works with components directly part of the MTRX (the second digilink port is an extension/pass through; it doesn't interact with DADman.)

If you used an AES to a DA converter, you could use the Pro Mon section to make this work.
If you used the MADI coax to a DA converter, you could use the Pro Mon section to make this work.
Other than those options, you need an expansion card (like a DA card) -- assuming your speakers are fed analogue -- slot into one of the option slots on the MTRX.

Then you can assign those as outputs and also chose how talkback is handled.

OK thanks for explaining. Should be getting an 8 channel DA expansion card for the MTRX soon so that will do the job.
