The sends are eight auxiliary signal paths used to route signals to other destinations in addition to the channel output. Very often they are used to add effects to signals such as reverb and delay. For basic mixing, this section will review how to do this, but understand that sends can be used for a variety of complex signal routing.
The sends can be found in all the same places as the inserts: Channel Settings, Inspector, and the extended mixer view. There are eight sends total, and they take their signal source from either just before the channel fader or just after the channel fader, pre- or post-fader. (See Figure 13.19.)
