MixerDelay allows you to adjust and manipulate each individual channel in a surround track, group, or bus.


Allows you to mute individual channels.


Allows you to solo individual channels.


Lets you invert the phase or polarity for individual channels.

Above the individual channel controls, you find global buttons for turning off M, S and Inv for all channels.


Allows you to delay individual speaker channels. The delay times are shown in milliseconds and centimeters, making this feature very useful for distance compensation when playing back surround mixes on different speaker setups, for example.


Allows you to fine-tune the volume balance between the surround channels.


Shows the level of the input signal.


Lets you select/switch the outputs for the channels quickly. You can assign the same output to several channels by holding down Alt/Opt while selecting. Note that there are also several channel routing presets available.


It is common for the center channel in a 5.1 speaker configuration to be closer to the mix position in order to accommodate large video monitors or projection screens. MixerDelay can be used to compensate for the center channel being too close. Simply adjust the delay for the center channel by the difference in distance (in cm) between it and the other speakers to the mix position. You must delay the closer speaker so that its sound arrives at the same time as the sound from the more distant speakers. Note that MixerDelay has a wide range (up to 1000 ms), and fine adjustments are best made by numerically entering the delay time in centimeters for speaker alignment.


The MixerDelay is not a mixer – the number of outputs is the same as the number of inputs. If you need to mix down a surround signal to stereo, use the Mix6to2, Mix8to2, or MixConvert V6 plug-ins.
