View or Hide Channel Send Faders & Controls - Pro Tools

By TOM BOWSER

View Channel Send Faders & Controls:

To make the channel send faders visible within the Edit and Mix window of a session.

  • Left click on "View" on the Pro Tools menu bar.
  • Hover your mouse over Sends A-E or F-J depending on the sends you want to see.
  • Left click on the send you want to show. The available sends are listed under "Assignments" for example, "Send A".

The letter that identifies the send (the letter "a" in the image below) is listed to the left of the name used for the send.

Pro Tools Send Showing In The Mix Window

I've included 2 images below showing 4 channel/track sends in the Pro Tools Mix window. The top image has no send faders and controls showing. The second image has the send faders and controls visible.

Whether you want to show or hide the send controls within a channel strip is a matter of personal taste. It is convenient to have them available in the early stages of the mix process. In the later stages of the mix process you may find it less distracting with the sends NOT showing. This allows you to more easily focus on the audio (music and or sounds) of the mix.

Hide Channel Send Faders & Controls:

  • Left click on "View" on the Pro Tools menu bar.
  • Hover your mouse over Sends A-E or F-J depending on the send you no longer want to see.
  • Left click on the word "Assignments". You will no longer see the Send controls displayed on the Edit or Mix windows.
