Yes, DCA mutes mute pre and post sends, but they do not mute direct outs. So for example if you are feeding aviom or me from a direct out the DCA doesn’t mute that.

And you can’t use a DCA to ‘feed’ anything. The only feed comes from the original channels routing assignments. The DCA just allows you to fade or mute a set of channels together.

While using the editor to set up the mixer before you get your hands on the physical hardware is quite helpful, there is no substitute for seeing what happens when you actually pass sound through the mixer. Be prepared to to revise some of your decisions when you find out how it really works. I speak from personal experience:-)
