Why Am I Puzzled ?

Hi guys,

I was running a simple alignment check and discovered that a Steinberg Tools signal generator inserted on a stereo output bus reads exactly as it is supposed to ( same for mono )
However, when I create a 5.1 output bus the same generator ( or the mixer meter reading ) is off, and uneven across the output channels..

I'm new to to 5.1 setups, ( 2.0 work for over 20 years ..) just wanted to calibrate my whole system.
What is going on ?

thanx for stepping in

Cheers,
Andrew

I tested on my system and the meters show equally. The most likely issue would be your 5.1 routing. Attached is the screen shot from mine.

Thanx Chris,

Yea..Inserting the generator on the 5.1 output bus shows it fine, just like you demonstrated.
I was on an audio channel , feeding the 5.1 out.
I'll need to figure out how to set up the busing/panning correctly, as I'm just getting into the surround mixing..
I know.. :shock:

The top of the channels in your screenshot seem to show one signal generator on each.
