The 4-band EQ utilised in the LIVE1 is derived from the EQ used on all the larger Cadac analogue consoles. Giving up to 18 dB of cut/ boost to all frequencies, with two swept mid sections on the mono channels and 4 fixed bands on the stereo channels. All channels feature and EQ-in switch to enable bypassing of the EQ section if required.
Each channel features 6 auxiliary sends, configurable either pre or post fader in pairs from the Pre/Post selections in the LIVE1 master section.
Pan and routing control is fully selectable to all subgroups and / or the master output. Channel monitoring is available using the PFL button which is configurable either PFL or AFL using the mode selections in the LIVE1 master section.
Every channel comes complete with channel mutes, signal level LEDs including overload and high quality 100mm long throw faders.
There are 4 fully featured sub groups each with its 100mm fader, pan control, PFL and mute switching. Control and monitoring of the Master Output on the LIVE1 is provided via a high quality 100mm stereo fader, and features a mono summing selection, PFL and mute switching and dedicated 10 segment bar graph metering.
The Master Section features additional comprehensive 10 segment bar graphs metering, which is switchable to monitor either the group outputs / Stereo returns or the 6 auxiliary send levels. PFL / AFL monitoring is achieved with dedicated 10 segment bar graph meters. Master selection for PFL / AFL mode and AFL level is also available
