Hi all - can anyone tell me how to insert ARC2 into a control room monitor mix? I searched the forums and this was the most recent thread. I can't figure it out. I just upgraded from 5.5 (never used the control room) to 7.5 and the learning curve is pretty steep I'm certain it's an easy solution. I may have overlooked it in the manual too.
Like others I would like to hear the mix in headphones without ARC2 and export the mixdown without including the ARC2. Currently I'm not using the control room and to exclude the ARC2 when exporting, I create a group called "Submix" and route all tracks to it and ONLY export that group channel so I avoid mixing down the main stereo bus which includes the ARC2 inserted.

I wish someone made a "set up control room for dummies video" is there one on YouTube that someone could point the mentally challenged, such as myself, to?
As much as I want to use the Track Version feature when tracking (especially drums w/ full band in the studio), I can't. The new Control Room drives me crazy (it's supposed to be fun )

YES it is extremely useful and easy once you understand it!!! It's really necessary once you start recording 2 or more musicians simultaneously like myself. My Tascam console is able to send multiple monitor cues but not as easily (at least for me). Learn this! It will only take one night and the benefits are awesome. I can't believe I waited so long to use this function.

Actually what is no longer useful is the Master Buss!
I don't record anyone, no studio sends, etc. I am using it for monitoring and analysis only. Oh, and listen feature. CR is amazing, guys, use it, other DAWs wish they had it like us.
