Chapter 12. Mixing Basics > Understanding Audio Signal Flow

Understanding Audio Signal Flow

Audio signal flow refers to the path that audio takes through the Pro Tools mixer. Generally, this path is fixed, moving from top to bottom through audio track, auxiliary input, and master fader channel strips.

Don’t confuse audio signal flow with I/O Setup—they’re related but not identical. Audio signal flow refers to the path audio takes within channel strips, while I/O Setup determines the specific channel assignments for inputs, outputs, inserts, and buses. For more information on I/O Setup, see Chapter 2: Software Basics, and Chapter 4: Starting a New Session.
