The first tab in the Edit Audio Patch window is the Cue Outputs tab. Here you can do some really useful things that correspond to the outputs available for the Audio Matrix found in audio, video, and mic cues.
First, I love to re-name the outputs. If you have just a left and a right output, those are pretty easy to remember, but create a full 5.1 surround sound system with outputs to special speakers as well like, streaming, and lobby, and booth, and more … it can be difficult to remember. Naming helps immensely.
Next to the output name then, you can also add effects. These effects can have very creative or very functional purposes.
You might want to add distortion to a special speaker hidden inside a set piece; a creative purpose.
Or perhaps you might want to add a bit of EQ to a speaker so that it sounds better or maybe a delay to the booth speaker output so that its timing matches the sound from the front of house speakers.

Why should you consider re-naming your outputs?
It can be difficult to remember which output goes where, especially as you add more outputs.
