An easy way to select output for 8ch mixer (tip)

I have found an easy way to change the outputs channels on the 8ch mixer.
The 4 knobs all have the same step curve:

For this animated gif I have made the knobs large, but I prefer them small and without text.

This is how small I prefer the 4 mixer output channel knobs, compared to the border of a 1U panel:

Nice! Thanks for sharing. Maybe you could share the gig file as well?

And if someone would like buttons, here’s an example:

Thanks. Nice solution. I will share a gig with more than one solution in a few days :grinning:


Sounds good to me :slight_smile:

As far as I know the step curves are not necessary here.

Yes, if you use knobs, then just turning them will cycle through all the choices.

If you’re using buttons, you’ll need a set of buttons for each fader strip and sufficient buttons to be able to choose all the possible outputs. I think knobs are easier, just one per fader.

The step curves are not necessary but they are convenient. Add my step curve to one of the four knobs and feel the difference :wink:

4 knobs or 16 pads, that is the question :grinning:

I do the same thing as you with a 32-mixer, there’s no question, I use knobs. But if you want to be able to switch between a limited number of settings, then not only do curves make sense, as they avoid unnecessary intermediate settings, but radio buttons can also be very handy. :wink:
