FaderGlow illuminates the fader track in different colors to provide at-a-glance status information on precisely what the fader is controlling “ aux sends, FX sends or even the graphic EQ that’ available on every bus.
Each fader channel also features a clear multi-color LCD display – giving ˜at a glance™ information on levels and offering a fully customizable ˜scribble strip™ to name your channels.
