    Got in a ilive demo unit today and started setting stuff up (it has 1.54 btw). I was wanting to send a few playback channels through a stereo matrix back to our stage mixer. I found the only way I could do it is run the channels through a group and then run the group to the matrix channel and not assign the group to the mains which works but is there a way to run a channel straight to a stereo matrix buss without going through a group?

    The only bummer has been that I created shows with 1.6 on my pc and can’t load them on 1.54 all that work for nothing lol…still creating the shows I did from scratch with just the console was a good learning experience.

    Nope – you have to use a group as matrix channels get their signals from busses – not from input channels. If it’s a simple stereo mix you could have just used a stereo group and sent that to a couple of outputs directly.
    Demo unit? – Just buy it! You won’t look back!

    My understanding is that a matrix is a ‘mix’ of outputs, so you wouldn’t be able to send an input direct to a matrix – i believe that this is also the same in the analogue world too.

    There are several inputs routed to the same output. I guess it is not a big deal I find myself hardly using groups for anything on this board now that I have VCAs.

    If I was the only one making the decision and it was my money an outright purchase might have been made but, since this is our first foray into digital everyone wants to make sure we are taking the right steps we are walking a little slower.

    Thank you,
