The Signal Flow Description of the Mixer

- Sep 14, 2018-

Mastering the signal flow of the mixer makes it possible to fundamentally understand the console. The process is divided into three parts: the signal input part, the bus part, and the signal output part.

The sound source signal is input from the microphone or input from the line, and the gain is adjusted to enter the equalization process for sound quality compensation, and the attenuator (fader) is used for the mixing ratio adjustment. Then through the sound image adjustment, enter the left and right channel bus and the group bus, and at the same time, the sound signal is led before and after the fader, respectively, into the auxiliary bus. The mixed acoustic signals coming out of the busbar are mixed and amplified, adjusted in size and amplitude, and placed in isolation to deliver corresponding outputs.

In addition, the sound signal sent from the auxiliary signal or the signal of the external device is processed by the effect machine or other aspects, and then enters the mixing console from the auxiliary return end, and the signals on the left and right channels are adjusted after the size adjustment and the sound image adjustment. Superimposed and sent together, this is the whole process of the acoustic signal.
