    Hello! Is there a way not to mute Pre-Fader Aux Sends when MUTE button is being pressed?
    We use Pre-Fader Aux for talent and production crew to communicate.

    This is not possible in SQ.
    You would probably have to use (an) additional channel(s) for this.

    Route your channels to a group and mute the group.

    Thank you for your replies!
    Muting the group is the same thing as muting individually. Unassigning the input seems to be working, but apparently you can’t unassign DCA. Am i missing something?
    Unassigning inputs one by one is kinda non-intuitive

    I really don’t think that muting a group is regarding the auxes the same as individual muting.

    Best Regards,

    Muting a group will not mute the individual Aux sends from the individual channel mixed to that group.

    Just to be sure: We are Talking Groups here not DCA!

    Maybe we don’t understand exactly what you want to do yet.
    As I said already, I would use two channels with the same input instead of one.
    These could be “ganged” to do the same thing – except for mute and routing of course.
    So the first channel is the one you can mute, while the second (for your Pre-Fader stuff) is not muted.
    If you have to do the same thing with multiple channels, using a group would actually be the better choice – like nottooloud and Tobi already said.
    This group sends the signal only to where it should be muted, while the individual channels in the group would be not muted.

    Muting the group is the same thing as muting individually.

    I’d guess you’re talking about mute groups, where you see the mute buttons flashing. I’m suggesting routing to a group, which has a master you can mute. Those are very different things.

    Thank you for all the input!
    Yes I was thinking you were talking about Mute Groups, sorry.
    To clarify: I need to be able to mute inputs on main mix and post fader auxes, but not pre fader aux.
    According to block diagram of SQ-7 mute button stand before PFL sends, so i think there is no way to achieve what i want here.
    So i came to the conclusion that the best way to work around that is to unassign the input from the mix. \

    I ended up doubling the inputs i need to other small mixer we had around
    Again, thank you for all the help!

    This is exactly what can be achieved by using the 2 channels.
    Like the keyboarder who always wants to hear his keyboard in his Inear, even if it’s muted in the mix.

    If you only want to mute the post-fade sends and not pre-fade, assign the channels to a DCA. When that DCA is muted, all the post-fade sends will be too. If there are a lot of channels that need to be muted individually, you will burn a lot of DCAs, but it will do what you want.

    But in my experience also all pre-fade sends.
    I think, the muting of a DCA is the same as using a mute group.
    In both cases you mute all channels of the group – also including their pre-fade paths.

    Assign the channels in question to a DCA. Instead of MUTING the DCA, just bring down the fader all the way when you want the Main and Post-Fader channels to go silent. The Pre-Fader mixes will still receive the signal.
    Don’t forget folks, faders go up and down.
