UMC404HD: How to use the Inserts?

1. Do the inserts for the UMC404HD act as returns & sends all in one?

2. Do I need a special 1/4" cable? (Mono/Stereo?)

3. How would I use a compressor with theUMC404HD?

Hi Moses,

Welcome to the forums. Yes, an insert is both a send and a return in one.

What you need is an "insert cable" that is a TRS on one end and splits to 2x TS on the other end.

Something like this: http://hosatech.com/product/stp-200/

Here's a link to a tutorial on using a compressor: https://music.tutsplus.com/tutorials/the-beginners-guide-to-compression--audio-953
