Suppose you want to use parallel audio effects (i.e. typically reverb, delay or sometimes chorus: effects that just add some "dependent extra signal" rather than "destructively" modifying an input signal). There are two obvious ways to do this: use an insert loop like you would for a serial effect (compressor / eq ...), but with an FX unit that allows you ...

I have seen it used to provide an effects path (aux-send : effects : aux-return) From Wikipedia's Aux-Send article: The signal from the auxiliary send is often routed through outboard audio processing effects units (e.g., reverb) and then returned to the mixer using an auxiliary return input jack, thus creating an effects loop. This allows effect to be ...

What are you generating your metronome with? You can feed the metronome generator into an empty channel on the mixer. Turn the fader all the way down to -infinity for that channel and use the aux send (pre fader) to send the metronome signal to the Q that you are using to amplify the headphone signal. That way the signal is sent to the aux before it reaches ...

I've finally sorted this issue out. It turned out I don't need to have a headphone amp for this and all I really have to use is some cables and adapters. The connection I have now is this: TRS plug Y-adapter to dual TRS socket (duplicates the mono signal to two mono signals) 2xTS - TRS cable (TS plugged to TRS sockets, TRS plugged to CD/MP3 in of POD ...

You need to use the Aux sends in a pre-fader configuration. As you inferred, with pre-fader levels being used for Aux sends, you can leave the volume of a channel turned down in the mains, but still can route it to the two aux sends. If you don't use the pre-button on Aux 2 on that board however, it will operate as post-fader which would mean no signal ...

Using an aux track would require you to re-route the audio of each track involved into the aux, and recording automation on the aux track wouldn't affect the automation of the sub-tracks. The VCA is purely a control- and automation-based system, meaning 2 things: Assigning tracks to a VCA has no bering whatsoever on their audio input/output routing. In pro ...

Whatever you do, you'll definitely need some kind of headphone amp(s) to properly drive the headsets' low impedance. With such amplification, the aux sends should be just fine, they shouldn't feature more clipping than the master output. Of course, the aux sends will only me mono; IMHO that should always be ok for monitoring (or in fact better: I once ...

Yes, according to the manual, page 20, the FX output on the mixer is before the internal effects processing, so you may use that output as an AUX too. You could perhaps free up the other AUX send by using the 2TRK Out option for recording instead. Also, if you don't mind the mix being mono, there is a pretty neat trick: use L for the P.A. and R for the ...

I did a quick 'google' on the subject and found this, (I think this will be more use to you than my original answer)...... http://forums.jeskola.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1015

Never mind I solved it. The trick is to make sure that audition isn't re-routing the bus to the master track and that correct audio tracks are routing sends to the correct bus, located on top of the mixer. The Bus then routes to either another bus or the master track.

Some Behringer mixers have dedicated mon fx sends like the below (from the PMP1600): Other Behringer mixers (e.g. the XENYX X1204USB) don't have that option and here you have to patch back the FX send into an unused channel and from this channel send to the monitors in question (but DON'T send to the FX send - it will create a feedback loop!). Note that ...

According to the manual: The INDIVIDUAL channels sent to the computer send the signal after the preamp gain knob, the high-pass filter, the three-band EQ, and the channel fader. The effects of the AUX send knobs are NOT included in the outputs of the individual channels. The MAIN mix channels sent to the computer exactly mirror the MAIN ...

Aux sends (line outputs in general) aren't meant to drive low impedances such a headphones. Whatever you do, even if the stereo comes out right, the signal will be weak and possibly distorted/low-cut. Get a proper headphone amplifier. These can generally be set to operate in mono mode. No problem there. If you think the aux send is strong enough for what ...

Yes to @leftroundabout - mono is best for clarity and precision of monitors. Clipping is from impedance or gain structure issues. Buy multiple headphone amps, one for each aux, they don't each have to have 4 outputs, just look for something more or less portable and durable as these won't be confined to your desk (usually you plug the headphones straight ...

Looks like that console has 4 sub-mix busses. Which means you can create two stereo sub-mixes. On the individual channel strip, you'd click the 1-2 or 3-4 buttons (or both), and then use the strip's pan pot to place the track in the stereo space of that sub-mix. Over on the sub-mix output, you'd make sure you've got 1 and 2 hard panned left and right, ...

The send is (probably) the Tip and return (probably) the Ring on on TRS splitter cable, something like this: http://www.swamp.net.au/swamp-insert-cable-y-cable-trs-to-2x-ts-1m.html

If you were to route channels to external effects on the aux out you would have to return them to an unused stereo channel. On a big deck that may not be a problem but on a tiny mixer you may not have any input channels to spare. And you probably dont need channel EQ on the returned effects. So an aux return frees up your valuable channels. Not very many ...

an Aux Return is a level-control-only input that generally feeds directly into the Mix Bus (rather than using up a fully-featured channel), and has no aux send from it (automatically preventing feedback through the device).

VCA Master changes will affect to Volume-fader values for each track in the group, so Send Levels wich are in post-fader will be affected too. You cannot add inserts to a VCA since there is no signal routing happening, so if you need group processing I´d use Aux Tracks. Or you may use both: that is, just group tracks levels into a VCA Track and route their ...
