Mixer Details

This is just one of over 75 professional audio mixers covered in The Mixer Output Guide, which describes direct outs, inserts, hidden mods and more. To see the rest, and for definitions, visit The Guide.

Direct Out: 
1/4" TRS
separate 1/4" send and return. Switchable pre or post.

The following makes more sense knowing that the signal flow is Filter-->EQ-->Fader.

"DIR" button on makes Direct Output post-fader.
"DIR" off makes Direct Output pre-EQ.

Internal solder mod allows an additional configuration. After this mod, the switch behaves like this:
"DIR" button on makes Direct Output post-EQ
"DIR" off makes Direct Output pre-filter

From the manual:
"A direct output on balanced 1/4” jack is available from the channel, see the rear connector panel. The source is controlled by the DIR switch (19), which switches the direct output from pre-EQ to post-fade when the switch is pressed in. In addition, there are internal solder links to alter the signal feeds in both of the switch positions, as follows:
DIR switch not pressed - pre-EQ (default) OR pre-filter
DIR switch pressed - post-fade (default) OR post-EQ"
