If Im trying to re create a real world situation, I would go through a mic or line input, through r2r, and then back through...im guessing CLC SNR send/buss/return? In the manual it states that the CLC SNR is for reverb and FX, but it would also be where tape returns would input the console wouldnt it? thanks.
@ the OP, remember that Nebula is a lot about forum reading... a lot ... It's a shame that the old forum is down now.There was a lot of good infos there too...
Check out what Mercado Negro,Ngarjuna, and other said about AlexB consoles and general virtual console workflow in this forum (or @ Gearslutz,etc).All your questions have already been answered...Use the "search button" (top left).
The real 4000E is pretty modular (to a certain extend)...you can switch the order of EQ/filters/dynamics.Dig papy! It's all here,you don't even have to move from your seat! Good luck
