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.
The SSL is the 'final mixer' in the studio, and the others like the 14:2 are 'sub-mixers' off to the side (if you will). Everything eventually makes it's way through the big mixer (SSL), unless you really prefer the 14:2 (you can always patch the 14:2 direct to the hardware interface if you don't like the SSL for some reason).

The SSL has patching like other devices, even has CV inputs like the 14:2 and it's dynamics section has side-chain inputs and a CV gain reduction output. Also there are inserts and direct outputs, so yes the SSL DOES connect with the whole Reason paradigm of patching. ;-)

There are no inserts on the 14:2 mixer, btw. They are not the same thing as patching an instrument before the input of the mixer channel. In the SSL, the insert can be moved before or after the EQ/Dynamics, and can be bypassed for A/B (handy for longer insert chains with multiple devices). :-)
