image:console_mixer_channel_expanded.png

Console Mixer Channels are part of the Console Mixer Agent - please read the main article first before continuing.

The Console Mixer Agent creates 24 stereo input channels when the Agent is created. The user also has the option to create 'effect channels', which can then act as an effect send/return bus within the Console Mixer Agent.

A Console Mixer Channel has the following Ports:

Ports

Left Audio input

  • Name:
    118 1118 116
    left audio input
  • Input
  • Type: Number
  • Range: -1 to 1

The left audio input is normally used to receive left channel audio data from upstream Agents (e.g. Summer)

Right Audio input

  • Name:
    121 1118 116
    right audio input
  • Input
  • Type: Number
  • Range: -1 to 1

The right audio input is normally used to receive right channel audio data from upstream Agents (e.g. Summer)

    212
    volume
  • Input, Set
  • Type: Number
  • Range: -70 to 14

The Volume port determines the mixer channel's volume in dB.

Pan

  • Name:
    1134
    pan
