The Mixing Desk
Basic Functions
The mixing desk is the hub for controlling all the sound of  your live show.It is important to understand at least the basic functions of the desk, so that you can give yourself the best soundingshow possible and in case you run into any technical oraudio difficulties.
The Signal Path
Most desks have a similar signal path: the input signal from amicrophone or line source passes through the microphoneamplifier or line buffer stage, where the signal level is optimisedfor headroom and noise performance, then passes on to theequaliser, before reaching the channel fader. Auxiliary outputs will usually be immediately before or after the fader, and theremay also be insert points where the signal can be extracted fromthe desk, processed externally (perhaps with a compressor ornoise gate), and then returned to continue through the desk.Next, the signal is routed to the available outputs or groups asappropriate. In the case of the groups, the signal may passthrough an additional equaliser stage in the groups beforereaching the fader, and further routing to the main desk outputs.Groups are provided to make it easier to control a large numberof signals, or to allow a single signal processor to affect acollection of channel signals simultaneously.
