Inline Channel 5MT Series D
There a 10 static sends in total. In addition, the entire routing matrix can be used to build additional aux sends in mono or stereo. It is possible to assign up to 12 busses at a time. There are 6 mono Aux Sends, a stereo Cue Send and an Extension Send that can either be used stereo or dual mono. The Extension Send and the record chain fader can be used as mono or stereo in combination with the routing matrix for floating sends.
The Series D consoles have 6 mono aux sends in total. By default, the aux sends are tapped post tape chain fader. A REC switch per aux send makes possible to assign each aus send to the record fader individually. A PRE switch is assigned to each pair of sends. It changes from post fader to pre fader in tape and record mode as well. In PRE mode, all the aux sends are muted by CUT and Solo. This function makes it possible to use solo also with some sends pre fader. It is possible to disable the pre fader cut by jumper setting.
The cue send is a stereo send with level and pan controls that is assigned PRE tape chain fader. It has a REC switch and a POST switch. The default setting pre tape chain fader allows the use of the CUE send for playback while recording without additional settings. The Cue send is not muted by CUT or Solo in pre fader mode but it has its own CUT switch.
Extension is a multi purpose send system, which operates as a stereo send or as two mono sends. In stereo mode, the two pots are used as level and pan. The DUAL switch selects dual mono mode; both controls operate as independent level pots with DUAL. By default, the extension send is post tape chain fader. There are 2 REC switches that can select the record chain fader in Dual Mono mode independently and a common PRE switch. The function set of the extension send is identical with all the input channels of the Series D console. Only the stereo channel has a slightly different system.
Unless the TO RTG switch is pressed, the extention send drives its own stereo bus. TO RTG assigns the output of the extention send to the input of the routing matrix and switches the extention busses off. The extension send overrides the default input of the routing matrix from the record chain fader, however, the TO-RTG switch next to the mix pan has the highest priority and overrides the Extention send. If the mix pan is assigned to the routing matrix, the extension send can not be used to arrange additional aux sends with the routing matrix in the particular channel.
If TO-RTG is active, the extension send drives the routing switches in stereo mode. The left pan setting assinges the odd numbered busses while the even numbered busses are assigned to the right pan pot output. If DUAL is selected, the lower pot drives the odd numbered busses and the upper pot drives the even numbered busses.
The details about the use of the record fader for additional aux sends are described here.
