The Insert Send Assistant

The New Bus Options
section is unavailable when Send to Existing Bus
This option lets you assign a new send to a new stereo or surround bus. When selected, you can use the New Bus Options
section to specify stereo or surround, the bus name and other settings (see New bus options
When Pre Fader
is selected, the send signal is before
the channel volume fader. As a result, the send level going to the bus does not change when the channel fader changes. Pre Fader
is preferred when you want to create separate mixes, such as unique headphone mixes for different performers. By default, the send signal is post fader and comes after
the channel volume fader. As a result, the send level going to the bus changes when the channel fader changes. Use post fader if you want to create an effect bus. Doing so allows you to maintain a consistent balance between the “wet” and “dry” signals as you adjust the channel fader.
Match Track’s Gain and Pan.
When Match Track’s Pan and Gain
is selected, the newly created send will have Gain and Pan settings that match those of the strip's Main Gain and Pan. As a result, the headphone mix matches the main mix, and from there you can adjust the headphone mix as desired.
When you select New Bus
, the following settings can be configured:
This option lets you assign a new send to a new stereo bus.
