Stereo Return Master Gains

A stereo return allows you to bring in audio from external sources, such as effects processors or other audio sources, and mix them into the main stereo mix.

Monitor Section

Control the level and source of the audio signal being sent to the headphone output, which is used for monitoring the mix or individual channels.

LED Meters

Visualize the level of subgroup outputs (mono). The main mix is seen at the stereo meters.


Group together multiple channels and control their level and processing as a single unit. Assign any of the fader to either or both of the left & right signals of the main mix bus.

Main Mix (Master Fader)

Adjusts the overall level or volume of all the audio signals that are being send to the main mix. It is the final stage in the mixing process before the audio is sent to the main output of the mixer.
