Chapter 11. Mixing Audio > Bypassing EQ and Effects for a Channel

Bypassing EQ and Effects for a Channel

As a mix progresses, you'll often want to check to see if your changes are working. For instance, EQ on a bass track might sound great when it's soloed, but not so good in the context of a mix. It's also easy to add so many effects to a sound that the sound gets lost. Cubase offers a quick and easy way to keep track of the effects in use in a channel and to bypass groups of effects. Huddled together next to the channel fader are three buttons with particularly obscure-looking hieroglyphics (Figure 11.33). These buttons can bypass all of the EQ settings, insert effects, or send effects for that channel. These three buttons also do more than just bypass EQ effects; they indicate whether any EQ bands, insert effects, or send effects are active on that channel, and they provide important information about the channel no matter what their active status.
