Make sure you understand the difference between pan and balance. (Input → Gain → EQ → Inserts → Sends → Panning) → Faders The fader allows you to control the amplitude of the whole signal after it has gone through all the steps above. Its visual representation (in the case of a software mixer) or its physical placement (in the case of a hardware mixer) helps you see the level of the signal in comparison to other input channels in your mix. 11 (Input → Gain → EQ → Inserts → Sends → Panning → Faders) → Groups/Outputs Finally you will want to decide where your main signal goes.
