Mixer tabs

Parent chapter  Previous page  Next page


The Mixer tabs control the low-latency foldback mixers which are available for every output pair, including the analogue, digital, headphone and ADAT/SMUX outputs. Note that the ADAT/SMUX mixer tabs only appear for ADAT/SMUX channel pairs which exist in the current ADAT mode. Although the mixer tabs are always available for every output pair, it should be noted that the mixers may be 'defeated' for each output by setting that output to follow  its dedicated DAW feed, or by setting it to be routed from the output of another mixer.  This is under the control of drop-list controls on the Outputs tab, which are duplicated in the output strip of each respective mixer.



Each input channel has a fader, a high-resolution peak meter, with overload indication 0.05dB below clipping, plus mute and solo buttons and a pan-pot.  By engaging the 'Stereo' button beneath an input pair, the pair is controlled by a single stereo fader, mute button and solo button, and the pan-pots are replaced by a single balance control.  The DAW contribution and output strip are always in stereo mode.


Note that if the mixer tab is not active (because the output pair is in 'DAW' mode or is routed from the output of another mixer), the mixer controls are still available but the output mode control in the output strip is highlighted in red.
