Insert Effects

Insert effects can be inserted in the signal chain of an audio channel. This way, the whole channel signal passes through the effect.

You can add up to 8 different insert effects independently for each audio-related channel (audio track, group channel track, FX channel track, instrument channel or ReWire channel) or output bus.


You can process mono audio tracks through stereo insert effects.

The signal passes through the insert effects from the top downwards:

The last 2 insert slots for any channel are post-EQ and post-fader.


To show the post-fader slots 7 and 8 in the MixConsole, open the Rack Settings and activate Fixed Number of Slots.

Use post-fader slots for insert effects where you do not want the level to be changed after the effect. Dithering and maximizers are typically used as post-fader insert effects for output busses, for example.


If you want to use the same effect with the same settings on several channels, set up a group channel and apply your effect as a single insert for this group.
