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

Turn the Rotary Selector to PAN/AUX
