Line channels 13/14 - 15/16 are dedicated stereo channels, making them ideal for stereo instruments, such as keyboards – and can also be used for mono signals thanks to a convenient balance control on each 2-channel grouping. These channels can also be used as return inputs for signals sent external effects processing equipment.

Those legendary mixing desks soon became the envy of engineers and producers all over the world.
