    Could someone enlighten me on the uses for these mode switches on the master section of a Trident TSM console?: Mix/Tape/Overdub

    These switches concern the monitor part of the board but it seems they also affect how signals get sent to tape.

    Many thanks

    Have you tried the manual?

    When switching from Mix/Tape mode the inputs to the faders will switch from mic/line to tape return.
    The large and small faders will switch duties....IE: Channel fader and Monitor fader

    Some other things will switch but it's console dependant and not knowing the specifics of that console I can't go into it.

    Might wanna try gearslutz.com.......there's some trident owners ther.

    The only manual that came with the desk is a flow diagram type thing which is only partially helpful. I'll give your suggestion a try.
