(29) INSERTS Channels 1-4 (SRM-12X) and 1-6 (SRM-14X) are equipped with rear panel insert jacks to connect external signal proces- sors, such as compressors, noise reduction systems, or effects devices, to the individual input channels. Insert points are useful for adding dynamic processing or equalization to a channel or the mix.
Low Cut filter (3) is an integral part of the overall equalization of a mono channel. The chan- nel EQ is a valuable feature of the mixer as it allows the user to control the tonal characteris- tics of each instrument sepa- rately . For example, boosting the LOW can fatten the sound and add punch to the bass or drums; the MID control can be used to define the midrange or bring out the vocals; and adjusting the HIGH control can provide a crisp sounding high end.
