icon_exorbite.gif Ok, I have a computer based studio that I had the bright idea of adding some analog rack equipment to. 
I am running the alesis master control, with a firepod (for addional pres) with cubase le4.  I just added a
yamaha rack eq , alesis compressor limiter, and a bbe sonic max.  Also i have a 48 patch bay
.  Soooo   how to hook all this new sh$*# up?  I just want a straight throughput nomally, with the ability to patch in the eq, bbe and compressor when and where i need.  HELP!   anyone?
