Allows an external source to open and close the gate
INV= ? (Neve)

On the Neve, dynamics is WHAT in either mode? (Neve)
What are the EQ specs on the Neve?
4 band semiparametric EQ, BELL by default, switchable to shelving.+ or - 18db for each freq.

Describe a Bounce on the Neve
Works in Rec mode only, same as float on the SSL. LRG FDR on that channel is taken off the stereo buss and redirected to the routing matrix. PRE PAN POT, must do panning at odd/even in RM, shuts down SML FDR
In REC mode, whats the monitor fader?
How would I utilize a group on the Neve? (neve)
hit group master button, hit select on faders to be grouped. in software groups are labled by fader #s. Subgroups LEDs also flash.
Whats the diff btw linking and grouping faders? (neve)

[SSL 6k]
Fader status switches, They are assignment switches for softgrps.
How would I utilize a softgrp and fader status switch?

[SSL 6k]
