Down Mixer

You can use the Down Mixer to adjust the input format of the surround master channel strip. This allows you to quickly check a surround mix in stereo, for example.

Figure. Down Mixer window.

Important: The desired surround format is chosen from the Insert menu when you insert the plug-in. Choices include:  To Stereo, To Quad, To LCRS.

Channel mapping, panning, and downmixing are automatically handled behind the scenes. You do, however, have some control over the mix. Use the Level sliders to control the respective channel levels. The number (and names) of sliders is dependent on the chosen plug-in format.
