Rack Panel

A Rack contains any number of patches.It has a rack-input and a rack-output where you decide what is coming in and where it goes.

It provides the most massive routing you can imagine without dealing with complex auxiliary Buses.

Example with an audio Rack,
a mono input, 2 FX's and
a stereo output.
