Just like most other paths in the console, there is full signal processing on the Solo output channels. Note, however, that Solo channels cannot be part of Mute Groups or VCA Groups, and cannot be routed to Stems, Auxiliaries or Masters.
Note: The number of Solo Output channels is fixed, and is in addition to the main 'Paths' capacity of the console. There are no Dry Solo Channels. (see the Channels and Paths Tutorial)
This page describes the features available in the Solo Output channels. The operation of routing signal to the Solo Outputs from within the console are covered elsewhere in the Help system, however an overview of this procedure is described below:
- Configure each channel's sends to the Solo buses in the Fader page of the channel's Detail dialogue (see Channel Solos for details);
- Press the Solo buttons in the Fader Tile channel strips to activate each channel's feeds to the Solo buses;
- To change which Solo outputs are being fed from each Solo bus, press the relevant Solo Select A/B button in the Solo area of the Master Tile and switch the outputs on and off using the Output Select 1/2/3 buttons above them.
- Press the Solo A and Solo B encoders to switch the bus outputs on and off, and turn the encoders to adjust their levels; The Solo display near the bottom right corner of the Channel View screen indicates the level trim for each solo bus.
- Use the Solo Channel fader and path processing to configure each Solo output to its relevant application. Refer to the Channel Processing Reference section for further information on available processing options.
