The second tab in the Edit Audio Patch window is Device Routing. You might find that the order of hardware outputs don’t match up how you would like them in the cue outputs. For example, a typical 5.1 surround sound system is ordered as Left, Right, Center, Sub, Rear Left, and Rear Right. Maybe it makes more sense for your purpose to order them. Left, Center, Right, Rear Left, Rear Right, and Sub.
Here, using an Audio Matrix, you can re-route the Cue Outputs to the actual device outputs. For the example I just mentioned, I’ll re-route as such …
– Left should still be 1
– Center should be 3
– Right should be 2
– Rear Left is normally number 5
– Rear Right is normally number 6
– Sub is then the last one remaining, number 4
We can then use this order of outputs in our Audio Cues, but the actual hardware system can remain wired up how it wants to be connected.
