How does this sound to everyone?

I want to get a 24 track tape machine in the rig. I also want to keep my 32 channels of ad/da in the patch bay normalled.
Anyone done a line level y split on the 1-24 busses so the tape machine and the AD/DA are sharing the signal without any issues?

Thoughts?

You can feed from the console to the tape deck & convertor with no problems.   

Returning the signals to the console you need some sort of switching arrangement.    You can get old computer 25 way Dsub signal switches for next to nothing now, which is not a bad way to go for doing this.   This works out well if switching in 3 banks of 8 suits you workflow.

This sort of thing

This one is expensive but I have got them for 2 or 3 each.
