This allows effects to be added to an audio source or channel within the mixing console.

How many aux sends do I need?

You need as many aux as you own foldback monitors, plus as many more as you have fx, unless you’ve got dedicated fx channels… It really depends on the act, and how much of a diva they are going to be. I have worked regularly with a few 4-5 piece bands that are happy sharing 2 mixes.

What is the most common use for a post-fader aux send?

effects sends

What is AUX output used for?

An aux-in (or auxiliary-in) socket in your car is a 3.5mm jack into which you can plug anything that has a standard headphone connection. It sends sound to the multimedia system, enabling you to ‘stream’ music from a device through the car’s speakers.

Is aux send mono or stereo?

Each aux output is a mono send. If you want to process a stereo input channel, the aux sends are both derived mono sums, so that won’t work in stereo either. And, if you want to process the input channels individually in mono, plugging up both sides of both processors is pointless.
