Graphics- Insert or in series.
« on: February 11, 2011, 07:41:41 PM »

When using a graphic such as the BSS opal, which has a relay in it if the power cuts out, is there any disadvantages to running it in series i.e. desk main outs into graph input -> graph output to amps ?

The reason I ask is because I'm just about to get a graphic for my own setup and trying to decide on what wiring I'll need. Obviously, running it in series would be the easiest as it just involves XLR, whereas if I'm using it as an insert, I'll need to make up TRS.

Any suggestions would greatly appreciated.

The only thing I can think of is dependant on the inserts on the desk... If it use the single jack TRS combined send and receive then you dealing with unbalanced connections. If it has separate i/o then your back in balanced land. So if its a combined TRS then I'd definitely opt for the series option.

Another consideration is whether you want to hear EQ changes through cans or a cue wedge, which will work with an inserted EQ, depending on the console's insert point.

Also weather or not you want your consoles metering to reflect the change in level brought on by the EQ...
