A matrix is not fed by the busses, it is fed by the post fader signal after the bus is summed. You can’t route channels directly to matrixes, hence they don’t require a normal mixbus.(it’s on the other side of the masters if you will)

Basicly a matrix is an “extra” built in mixer that has the group,aux and L/R/M masters as input channels, with a single M/ST output.


“fed by the busses” and “fed by the post fader signal after the bus is summed” seem to be saying the same thing the way I read it, that the matrixes get their source signals from the output of the buses.

My understanding was that anywhere where audio signals are summed is a bus, so a subgroup summing signals from input channels would be a bus, but so would a matrix summing signals from subgroups. This now appears to be wrong…

Why does being on the other side of the masters mean than it doesn’t need a bus to sum those signals?

Thanks,
