This PDF appears to be an exact copy of the paper manual that comes with the unit. No new answers here.

Exactly, anyone who wants to chip in, knowing other mixers, will have a chance to se how this mixer is rigged.
If this manual was provided in the first post, the solution could be even closer. :wink:
Anyway, I just passed on the manual for others who don't own the original paper manual, to read.

I suspect this has long since been sorted - however:

Generally there are two methods of adding an effect to a channel.

The first is an AUX SEND and RETURN. You should be able to do this the way you always did. Go from the aux send into you FX unit - then return to an Aux return. The Aux send and/or return normally has controls so you can blend the amount of FX.

The second is an INSERT. You can either insert a signal directly into the insert point - bypassing the pre amp/EQ sections of the channel strip OR you can use the Y patch cable to create a send/return loop (the signal goes out of the left side of the stereo cable and comes back in on the right. The upside is you can add send/returns if you run out - the down side is you dont normally get any control of the signal. Its 100% out, 100% in. You need to control the blend in the outboard FX unit itself if using the insert as a psudo send/return.

Having looked at the PDF above, you have 4 Aux sends on each channel - and 4 aux returns to the main bus. So if you use these you will have control of the amount of reverb BUT you will have 2 channels to mix - the original un affect channel, and the wet aux return. Alternatively you can use the Insert and control the blend in your FX unit - meaning you channel strip will have reverb on it at all times (ie no dry signal).

Both are valid methods, and will depend on your circumstances. ie what you are using the Aux send/returns for on other channels (for instance signals to monitors etc) - you might run out of Aux busses just for a single effect on a single channel, and if you have access to the blend on the outboard FX unit in real time (ie is it tucked away in a rack, or freely accessible).
