Chapter 11. Mixing Audio > About FX Channels

About FX Channels

All previous versions of Cubase (both SX and VST) used a special-effects rack called the Sends rack for send effects. Thankfully, SX 2 dispenses with that convention and replaces it with FX channels in the Cubase mixer. FX channels are a huge improvement over the Sends rack, giving you more routing flexibility and processing options than the Sends rack ever did.

The easiest way to understand a send effect is to contrast it with an insert effect. Insert effects are serial: the sound from the audio track goes into each insert effect, one after the other, and then out to the channel fader. Send effects are parallel, meaning that part of the audio from a channel is split off and routed to the send effect for processing and then is sent to the master output, where it's combined with the original signal, so you hear both the dry and effected signals.
