Input VU Meters


Each 8 channel bucket has its own VU meters, which can read Mic/Line input, DAW input or Direct Output.

Global Meter Select (on the master section) switches
all input channel meters to read either the Mic/Line input, the DAW input or the Direct Out.

The meter sensitivity can be globally adjusted on the master section.
As standard, the meters read 0VU = +4dB
But to avoid the needle parking itself in the right-hand corner when working with “hot” signal levels, the meters can be switched to 0VU = +10dB

To avoid meter light bulbs blowing out, all VU meters are fitted with LED’s.
