Assigning Inputs to Faders

There are multiple ways to change the mixer configuration. This can either be done during the Setup Wizard process, or via the fader set-up screen or the channel set-up screen.

To access the channel set-up screen for a fader, simply tap the button above the fader or the icon below the level meter, then tap the settings cog to access the channel assignment screen. Here you can select what input is assigned to that channel, unassign inputs, link stereo inputs and change the colour-coding of the channel. Once you have configured the channel, tap the green tick icon to save the settings. Repeat the process for the other faders you want to assign inputs to.

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).

By default, the levels that you set using the physical and virtual faders on the main mixer will dictate the audio mix that is sent to all of these outputs. However, you can also create custom sub-mixes for these outputs (see below). This is particularly useful for streaming applications where you want full control over what audio sources and audio levels are sent to your stream, chat, headphones and other audio destinations. For channels that are used for two-way communications, you can also set the output configuration as mix-minus to mitigate unwanted echo or delay (see below for more information).
