     26== Dice Mixer & Router == 
     28(written by Arnold Krille in an [ email], licence unknown) 
     30The main part of the dice-based devices (if they implement the EAP, the 
     31extended application protocol) is a big router. This can route any source to 
     32any sink. Sources are for example the analog, spdif and adat inputs but also 
     33the computers output (named 1394). All these can be routed to sink like 
     34analog, spdif and adat out but also to the computers input. The router is only 
     35a router, not a mixer. So only one source can be connected to each sink at a 
     36time. Sidenote: One source can of course be connected to several sinks. 
     38The matrix-mixer is a real mixer. To make use of it, the mixers inputs are 
     39sinks in the router, while the mixers outputs are sources in the router. To 
     40actually mix something, you have to connect them accordingly. 
     42The gui of the mixer is a bit different then normal mixers as it doesn't have 
     43sliders or knobs. This would blow up the gui far beyond todays screen sizes... 
     44The black or colored boxes are the actual sliders. Either click and drag the 
     45mouse up and down to change the value of use the context-menu to select from 
     46pre-defined values or use the text-input. 
     48The Saffire Pro24 and Pro40 contain an extension where you can mute and dim the 
     49outputs. While dim is global for the channels selected, the volume can be 
     50controlled for all (not working correctly) or individually.
