T4S/T8SThis information is applicable to the T4S/T8S ToneMatch® mixer

This is an overview of using the Aux Outputs on the T4S and T8S ToneMatch® mixers. You can use the Aux outputs for monitors, remote speakers, or recording.

The steps are the same for the T4S and T8S.

Notes about the PAN/AUX display

The default view for PAN/AUX on the rotary selector is PAN. As a result:

  • When you turn the rotary selector away from PAN/AUX, when you turn back, the display will show PAN. But the Aux settings haven't changed.
  • When you change channels with the CH Edit buttons, the display will show PAN. But the Aux settings haven't changed.
  • For both cases above, to return to the AUX display, press the MENU button (left most button under the display) and rotate to AUX. Your previous settings for PAN are preserved.
Setting up monitors example

Connect your monitors to the T4S Aux Outputs. On the T4S you have two Aux Outputs. You can direct any channel to one of the Aux Outputs to create a monitor mix. As you assign a channel to an Aux Output, you can set the level and make the Aux send from the channel:

Dry : After Preamp
The only control that has an effect on the signal is the channel trim.
Pre : With EQ and FX
All settings for Preset, zEQ, ParaEQ, effects are sent through to the Aux output. The volume is controlled by the Level setting in this menu. Volume is not affected by the channel volume control. Reverb available for Aux 1 output only.
Post : After Fader
The volume is controlled by the channel volume control.

Select a Channel you want to direct to one of the Aux outputs. Note: You can send up more than one Channel to each Aux output

In the image below the Channel 1 CH Edit button is selected.

Example - Create a Monitor Mix using Aux1
How do I send the performance mix to the Master Outputs and a different mix (different levels) to a monitor (Aux1).

In this example, we will send:

  • Channel 1 (Microphone) to Aux 1
  • Channel 2 (Guitar) to Aux 1
  • Initially the mix will be the same for Aux1 as to the Master Output (ToneMatch port or Master Output(s)
  • Then we will change the relative levels of the Channel 1 and Channel 2
