Title: Why can't one solo both an input and an output at the same time? DM2000
Post by: kristianjohnsen on August 04, 2011, 04:48:44 pm
Just discovered this is impossible.

Just curious, can anyone guess why this isn't possible?

Some consoles have a priority scheme.  A channel PFL may have priority over a Sub AFL.

Uh, why would you want to have both?

Hello Marty :)  Do you know why this prority scheme would be in place?  Could it be a latency issue on this specific mixer?

I discovered the need at a gig a week ago when I found myself asking "I wonder what this vocal group would sound like if I added reverb to it?".  And since I couldn't find out I soloed all the components of the group plus the reverb return which was kinda the same but not quite.

Thank you for your answer.

Best regards,

Kristian Johnsen

I am not aware of any mixer (but could be wrong)-analog or digital, that will allow you to solo both the inputs and the outputs at the same time.

Typically the outputs have the highest priority.
