This might sound like a dumb question, but after using Cubase for years it still confuses me. Plugins loaded as Sends can be either Pre- or Post-Fader, indicated by an icon that looks like a half-moon with a dot next to it flipped either left or right.
The trouble is, the icon doesn’t “look” like anything I recognize as part of a signal path, so how do I tell which is Pre- and which is Post-? Maybe someone can explain what the icon is supposed to look like?
Fortunately I don’t often change it from the template, but if ever I do, I get confused, and literally have to do A-B comparisons while sliding the fader up and down to figure out which is enabled. Which of course I forget by the next time. Any mnemonic tips or explanation of the iconography welcome, thanks.
