Console Mixer Effect Channels

image:console_mixer_effect_channel_expanded.png

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

The user has the option to create 'effect channels' in the Console Mixer, which can then act as an effect send/return bus within the Console Mixer Agent. You can create them by either clicking on the little '+' button on the effects channel port in Workbench or by using Belcanto as described on the Console Mixer page. Once created they can be deleted by using the little '-' button or by using Belcanto, also as described on the Console Mixer page.
