Hello fellow forum users. I’m a little confused when it comes to sends on a channel versus the output routing of the same channel. I have 6 channels I’ve panned and mixed. I created a group channel so I can adjust the volume mix of all 6 channels at the same time, keeping them relative to each other. I noticed on each channel, I can set the output routing to the group channel I created, and I can turn on the Send for each channel and point it to the group channel as well. When using the Send option, I also get another level to adjust for the send output for that specific channel. If the software allows you to do this both ways, which is the correct/better way to route the output, and what would the other routing method be used for?
I hope I explained this well enough. I’m no pro at recording/mixing. I appreciate all help provided. Thanks in advance!
