I’ve got a question here for the more experienced users of the Mother, and now recently the DFAM. I should start by stating the obvious, that I have no idea what I’m doing - and I like it.
So here’s the issue:
Me and a friend of mine picked up a DFAM each yesterday. We went to town with those two and a Mother 32, routing the audio from the VCA to the External Audio in, from the DFAM to the Mother, from the Mother to the second DFAM.
Each time, the signal got a little weaker and at the end of the chain, it didn’t pass for much. The difference between the first DFAM into the Mother wasn’t all that much, but as it passed into the second DFAM, it was too weak to be useful.
I’m pretty sure this is not the way to do it, hence the obvious that I have no idea what I’m doing.
But how does one go about doing this? Is an external mixer for each and one of them the way to go here, or is the intention that you can route audio from one unit to the other, without a mixer to boost the signal? If so, what goes where? As I mentioned, VCA out into a Mother or DFAM works fine, but as you keep on doing this, the signal losses strength each time, so this doesn’t seem to be the intended way to play audio through multiple Moog semi-modulars at the same time.
Thanks for any help and shout-outs in advance.
