I could and may well. But I'm partly drawn to trying because I have some kit and don't just want it sitting around when I'm not working. Good to stay in practice etc.
Experimented further with Voicemeeteer today and am sure I don't want to go down software route. Too much restarting required and still can't get what I want exactly. Probably end user idiocy but I don't have the time to figure it out.
I've seen a fairly promising video of the GoXLR Mini in use which seems like it'll be spot on - a very idiot proof approach to routing which means I may even be able to use it for jobs from time to time.
