MixConsole Window

You can open the MixConsole in a separate window.

To open the MixConsole, do one of the following:

  • Press F3.

  • Select Studio > MixConsole.

  • On the Project window toolbar, click Open MixConsole.


    This is only visible on the toolbar if the Media & MixConsole Windows section is activated.

The MixConsole is divided into the following sections:

  1. Toolbar

    The toolbar shows tools and shortcuts for settings and functions in the MixConsole.

  2. Left Zone

    The left zone features the following tabs:

    • The Visibility tab with the following tabs:

      • The Channel tab allows you to show/hide individual channels from the MixConsole.

      • The Zones tab allows you to determine and lock the position of certain MixConsole channels.

    • The History tab lists all MixConsole parameter changes and allows you to undo/redo specific changes.

    • The Snapshots tab lists all snapshots of MixConsole settings and allows you to recall them later.

  3. Fader section

    The fader section is always visible and shows all channels in the same order as in the track list.

Apart from the main sections, you can also access the following sections from within the MixConsole window:
