IDCA Setup

This view allows you to assign channels to an IDCA. Select the mix you want to control with this IDCA by pressing the button on the right side of the Target Mix label. By default Main LR is selected. Now you can select the channels you want to control with this IDCA.

How it works

The IDCA stores the ratios of the levels of the assigned channels. When a channel level gets changed, the ratio will be recalculated. By changing the IDCA fader, all assigned channel levels will be adjusted accordingly to the stored ratios.

The red line behind the fader knob of an IDCA shows the minimum/maximum levels of the assigned channels.
