For the novice sound engineer, it can be pretty intimidating to walk up to a large analog board or digital console and try to figure out the routing of audio signals. It wouldn’t be so bad if the only place the sound had to go was to the main speakers in the room. Occasionally that’s the case, but most of the time, we’re also sending different mixes to monitors for musicians; to lobby and cry room speakers; and to various recordings. Moreover, we have several options for how we can group and control our signals. In this series, we’ll start to define what Auxes, Groups, VCAs and Matrix mixes are, and later, we’ll talk about when you’d use each of them.
