^This. It’s like the processing on the input channels: you’ve got a peq on every channel (16 of them, more if we count st-ins and outputs) but you can only see one set of knobs (encoders) at a time. If you push the select button on ch1, what you’re seeing in the superstrip is ch1’s peq. It doesn’t mean that the peqs on ch2-16 stop working: they’re still processing audio in the background, with their own individual settings. Same deal with you compressors, FX etc.

When the main LR mix is accessed, the faders on the LHS of the desk indicate channel levels for that mix, and fader #17 is the master fader for the LR mix. When you access Mix1 using the buttons on the RHS, the faders on the LHS now represent the channel contributions to that Mix1 (like your green aux1 pots above every channel on your old soundcraft, but instead of being a pot they’re unwound to be a fader.) Fader #17 (what was your main LR fader,) now represents the Mix1 master fader (the equivalent of your green Aux1 master pot on the RHS of your old soundcraft.) Despite you only being able to “see” one mix represented on your faders at a time, the other mixes still process audio with whatever settings you’ve applied.

Given you’re using a snake, you’ll need to patch the mix output to the output sockets on the snake. P65 of the manual explains how to do this. Press the Setup button next to the screen, go to the “IO Patch,” then go to the “dSnake Out” tab and ensure the relevant mixes are patched to the relevant sockets on your AB168.
