Xone:S2 - Mics and the Record output - not a cleanfeed?

Q:
Why is it that the Line level input on the Mic 1 and 2 sends still goes to a record out. I thought the record was a cleanfeed and did not include the Microphone channels?


A:
On the Xone:62 and Xone:92 models, the mic feed to the booth is a cleanfeed to stop the booth mic coming out of the booth speakers and creating a feedback loop.
The Record out is fed from the same signal source as the Booth, therefore is a clean-feed by default.


The Xone:S2 deals with the booth mic / booth output in a different way, not by using a cleanfeed, but by ducking the Monitor output when the mics are active.
The Xone:S2's Record output is not sourced from the Monitor output circuit feed, and therefore is not a cleanfeed (there is no clean-feed circuit on this mixer).
