AMP by NLE offers a host of mixing and routing capabilities with a maximum of 255 channels to accommodate a large amount of I/O hardware expansion.
Customizing Your Mixer
By default, the Host will set you up with a mixer (with as many input channels as it sees you have hardware inputs), 4 Aux sends, 4 Output busses, and 4 DCAs. You can customize AMP to be exactly what you want using the Mixer Design Wizard.
- The best way to do this is to CLICK File > New Show. A warning will pop up that you are about to erase all current data. CLICK “Yes.” This will start your new show with fresh parameters.
- The Mixer Design Wizard can also be accessed by CLICKING Configuration > Mixer Design Wizard.
Inside the Design Wizard box, enter the number of Inputs you want for this show, Mono Auxes, Stereo Auxes, Mono Busses, Stereo Busses, and DCAs.
- NOTE Add a few more inputs and perhaps auxes than you think you might use, so that you do not have to re-do everything later when you need that extra input or aux!
- CLICK Apply > OK. The mixer will display your new configuration.
By default, all inputs are assigned sequentially. This can be changed by using the
Input Source on a channel strip window. The order of channels can also be changed by HOLDING the “Shift” button while clicking on a channel in a mixer window. Then, drag the channel to your desired place.
If you wish to place empty “spacers” in the mixer view, RIGHT-CLICK on the channel and select “Insert Spacer”. Go to an unused channel (which is why we recommend adding some extra channels!) RIGHT-CLICK on it and change Type to “Spacer”.
Accessing Mixes and Aux Sends
AMP allows up to 32 Auxiliary Sends to be used. The GUI provides many ways of accessing these:
- Channel Strip – Most of the Channel Strip windows have “Aux Bars”, which provide a visual indication of the level of the various sends all in one place. You can hover over them with the mouse cursor to see their level, and use the scroll wheel to adjust.
- Sends On Faders – By using this mode, your main mixer window turns into the mixer of the desired Aux. There are a few ways of initiating this mode:
- CLICK on “Mix” then the desired Aux.
- Use a Mix Select WDL window
- Use a Mixer Window that allows mix access via tabs
- Select the desired mix using buttons on a hardware controller.
