To access the fader set-up screen, tap the settings cog, then ‘Faders’ (or tap the fader icon on the bottom left corner of the channel set-up screen). Here you can assign channels to the physical and virtual faders by dragging and dropping their icons to the desired location using the touchscreen. This is a quick and easy way to change the configuration of the mixer. You can also tap a fader icon to access the channel assignment screen.

Pro Tip

‘Unity gain’ for each fader is indicated by the white markers on the physical mixer and the small arrows on the virtual mixer (in default level meters mode only). This is helpful for balancing the input level with the output level and is a good starting point when setting your levels. If a fader is at unity gain and the signal is still too low, boost the preamp gain level in the channel set-up screen rather than pushing the fader up further. This will help you achieve a healthy signal with minimal noise.

Pro Tip

When a channel is muted, audio will still be coming though at the preamp stage but will not be sent to the output, meaning you can still adjust the gain level in the channel setup screen while a channel is muted, though you will not be able to hear it.

Pro Tip

You do not need to select the green listen buttons for all of the channels you are using when recording. They are for “listening” to a particular channel without hearing the rest of the audio. Selecting the listen buttons for all of your channels may result in audio being recorded that you do not expect (for example, if you have all of your active channels solo'd using the listen buttons, you may not notice audio coming through another channel because it will be muted in your headphones, though it will still be recorded).
