    Looking for a way to have vocals and fxs only routed to an out put separate from LR. Have vocal channels assigned to DCA which is routed to a separate output to a pair of speakers that is working but no FX. Assigned FX to same DCA as well but not getting fxs thru that output.

    @markwarila ,

    Input channels and FX channels are two different types of channels with separate (direct) outputs, though the levels of both can be controlled at the same time using a DCA.
    To combine multiple channels to one output, you need to mix them. So you need to send the vocals and FX to a mix bus (probably a group, so you could route this to other mixes if required) and then route that to an output.

    Hope this helps.

    Yes that solved it. Thank You!

    Mark, DCAs do not carry any audio, so you cannot route them anywhere. They function as a remote control for the channel faders they are assigned to, so adjusting a DCA by X DB has the same effect as adjusting all the assigned channels by X dB.

    If you want an audio bus you can route signals to, and which can itself be routed somewhere, you’d want to use a group.
