  2. Next, raise the Fader of the desired Input-channel to pass dry signal from that channel into the Aux.
  3. Then press the 'Next' button below the Fat Channel section until you see the FX Return faders.Next_button.JPG
  4. Raise the corresponding FX Return Fader (A, B, C, D, depending on which effect you selected) to add your desired amount of Wet/FX Signal into the Aux mix.


You should now have FX Signal in your Aux output.
