A demonstration of channel routing, multi-track bus out faders, and AUX/FX sends
1. Press the ROUTING switch in the PROC (processing) bank of the left switch block, to enter the CHANNEL
2. Press the channel 1 SELECT switch so that it lights up.
3. Master controller 2 (the second knob from the left, under the display) determines the level that is sent to the multi-track busses, and controls the pre/post-fader assignment. Turn the knob to set the level at '0dB', and press the knob until 'post' (for post-fader) is selected.
4. Use master controller 3 to control the pan of the signal when routed to the multi-track busses. If the FOLLOW CHANNEL function is on, the bus pan is the same as the channel pan. Set the PAN knob to read '0', and press the controller knob so that the 'FOLLOW CHAN' on the display is not highlighted (it should not be darkened).
5. Master controllers 4 and 5, bellow the DESTINATION BUS list on the display, are used as switches to route the signal to the 16 multi-track busses. You can select more than one pair of multi-track busses. Use the controllers to select '1-2' and '9-10' (the display will show dotted lines around the busses that were selected). If you had wanted to complete the routing to the destination bus at this time, you would press master controllers 4 and 5 to highlight (darken) your selections.
6. Use master controller 6 to route the signal to the stereo MAIN bus. The 'MAIN' button on the display should be selected (darkened). This signal is always post-fader as well as post-mute/pan.
7. The mult-track bus outputs are available via the digital I/O modules, but can also be assigned in the I/O menu to any of the multi outputs. The multi-track busses can be grouped or paired using the PAIR and GROUP switches, and can be muted. The faders for the multi-track busses are activated by pressing the BUS OUT 1-16 switch in the FADER bank of the left switch block until you see the multi-track bus faders page. By default, this will assign the level meters to the multi-track faders.
8. Next we will pair busses 1 and 2 together. Press PAIR in the GENERAL bank, and all 16 of the SELECT switches in the channel strips will begin to flash.
9. Press the channel 1 and 2 SELECT switches, and you will see them stop flashing, but they will remain lit. The SELECT switches in the other channels will be unlit.
10. Press the ENTER switch (to the right of the display) to designate busses 1 and 2 as a pair. In the BUS FADERS menu you will now see a ?diamond? shape between faders 1 and 2 on the display, indicating that busses 1 and 2 are now a pair.
11. The BUS FADERS can be paired or grouped, but not at the same time. You will need to unpair BUS FADERS 1 and 2 before moving on to the grouping process. Press the PAIR switch in the GENERAL bank, and then press channel strip 1 SELECT switch, so that channel strip 1 and 2 SELECT switches are lit but not flashing. Press the ENTER switch (next to the display) to 'UNPAIR' BUS FADERS 1 and 2, and the 'diamond' shape that was between BUS FADERS 1 and 2 on the display will be removed; indicating that they are no longer paired.
12. The grouping and muting of busses follows a similar process to pairing. To begin, press the GROUP switch in the GENERAL bank, and all 16 of the SELECT and MUTE switches on the channel strips will begin to flash.
13. To group busses 1 to 3 together, press the SELECT switches on those channel strips. The SELECT switches for channel strips 1-3 will remain lit, but will stop flashing.
14. To mute busses 1 and 2, press the MUTE switch on channel strip 1 and 2. The MUTE switches will remain lit, but will stop flashing.
15. To finalize the process of grouping busses 1-3 and muting busses 1 and 2, press the ENTER switch next to the display. The BUS FADER menu will show you an alpha value (like A or B) to indicate which busses have been grouped together and muted. Any 2 or more busses can be grouped together, and a multiple of bus groups can be created at the same time.
16. While in the BUS FADER menu you can use the channel strip faders 1-16 to adjust the bus output levels for busses 1-16. As you move a channel strip fader, you will see the corresponding bus level fader on the display move, and it will indicate the bus output level below the fader. You will notice that if you adjust one fader from the group, the others in that group will also move.
