Had a bit of a disagreement with a bandmate this weekend over the Aux out control for monitors.
After setting gain for all the mics,I typically set the Aux pre dial at 12 O'clock and then bring up each channel aux send to taste in the monitors.
My bandmate (who also has a mixwiz) says that the aux out unity setting is actually at 3 o'clock. There is a mark at 3 o'clock on all the aux knobs, but all the other dials center at 12 o'clock.
Couldn't find specifics in the manual, but as a habit on all the boards I've owned, 12 is usually unity.
What am I missing here? Thanks!

Note that unity is just a term... after only 1 input's worth of signal, unity has a completely different meaning. I think a better way to describe it as the "nominal" position though if you understand what the concept of unity is, then "niminal unity" might be ok.

Andy, how did I know you would call me out on my use of "unity"? LOL! Just figured it was the most common term everyone would relate to.

Andy, what are the implications for MixWiz users of this ? Should we default to having the aux send master at 3 o'clock ?
As I am sure it depends, on what would it depend ?

the 3:00 position is likely fine under most conditions, BUT if you have all inputs in operation and being sent to the aux bus at higher levels, you may want to back this down a bit.
