going from 14:2 from previous versions to SSL
So I'm new to the SSL Mixer concept, with the 14:2 already used for subbing and such, how does this big mixing desk fit in? I'm confused, does the SSL connect with the whole reason paradigm of patching, or was it grafted on from record, and can be thought of as a separate metaphor for the tracks? In short, how does the 14:2, and everything else for that matter route to the SSL? I don't get how inserts are used with the ssl, when they can already be used with the 14:2 mixer. Is it just an extra place to put inserts?
Thanks for any replies.
