The monitor section of SiX gives the user full control over which signals are feeding their monitors. You can monitor all signal sources through SiX, independently from the Main Mix output. Dedicated controls for Volume, Dim & Cut controls are also included in the Monitor section. This first video demonstrates the Monitor section in use.
SiX features 2 stereo cue sends, meaning you can create separate monitor mixes for 2 musicians when tracking. These are fed from the ST Cue knobs on each channel. You can also switch in the Ext inputs and Talkback input. This video explains how to create artist mixes on Six, and how to check them yourself using the monitor section.
Looking closely at SiX, you may have noticed that channel mutes are also marked 'Bus B'. When a channel is muted, the audio is simultaneously routed to the Bus B output on the back. This audio can then be routed wherever you like. In this example, Bus B is used to record selected channels whilst audio still passes through the main mix.
The SiX has more inputs than it's name initially suggests. In fact, up to 12 channels of audio can be summed through this mixer. This includes the 2 SuperAnalogue inputs, 2 stereo channels, 2 stereo external inputs and Alt inputs on channels 1 & 2. The resulting summed mix can then be processed through the bus compressor. This video explains in full how to set this all up.
