The Insert Send Assistant makes it fast and easy to create headphone mixes, effect buses and insert sends to new or existing buses.Figure 369. The Insert Send Assistant dialog box.The Insert Send Assistant dialog box has the following options:Send to Existing Bus. This option lets you assign a new send to an existing bus in the current project. Select the desired bus from the drop-down list.The New Bus Options section is unavailable when Send to Existing Bus is selected.New 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).
Pre Fader. 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.
Note: The Match Track’s Pan and Gain setting does not affect sends that are assigned to surround buses.When you select New Bus, the following settings can be configured:
Stereo. This option lets you assign a new send to a new stereo bus.
Surround. This option lets you assign a new send to a new surround bus.
