What is the point of having the Red Input Channels? We set our preamps to the correct input level. So why have the ability to lower that with a Red Input Channel fader? If it is distorting at the preamp stage, bringing down the red fader won’t make it any less distorted. I believe ProTools doesn’t use separate mixer channels labeled “Input Channels” to monitor the input signal. So doesn’t it seem redundant to have them? Or am I drastically missing something here?
So how do you use the Red channel faders, and in what way? Please explain.
Also, which channels do you enable your CUE SENDS on, the Red Input channels…or the Record Enabled Audio channels? Which makes more sense to send a band member for their headphone mix?
