Isn’t a matrix a mix of outputs? i.e. its a way of getting a different mix combining existing outputs such as auxes, groups or mains without using any additional buses? Therefore you can’t send inputs to a matrix as that would require another bus (works the same on analogue desks too).

We know that. On some Yamaha consoles you can route inputs directly to matrix outs. That makes some things possible.
Like routing an Output mix to a matrix and add some ambience microphones to it,
just with routing and without using an additional bus.
So one can create a stereo mix with ambience.

It is no killer feature we must have, it’s a nice to have…I think.
