NewTek's 2-Minute Tutorial: Setting up a Mix-Minus in TriCaster Advanced Edition

A common production need is for various mixes of the audio minus one or more items. This is called a mix-minus. Some example cases, for new producers:
  • On-air talent has an earpiece to hear directions from the control room as well as all other show audio except the talent’s own audio, to avoid them hearing themselves as a delayed echo, which can be disconcerting for the talent as they try to speak
  • When conducting a Skype video interview using a TalkShow, you will want to send the show audio back to the caller without the caller’s own audio, same reason as previous
  • In a live venue such as a house of worship, you might want to isolate one aspect of your production’s audio and send that to the house audio mixing board.

To do this, he goes to the Audio Mixer in the UI, and mouses over the DDR2 level meter column. This makes the Settings gear become visible. Clicking on the gear opens the Configuration panel for DDR2 Audio....-read more
