Signal Mute Switch

Pressing the mute switch instantly reduces the output level to zero. While in this state, instruments can easily be changed on the DI, cables can be swapped, mics can be replaced by others – without blowing ears or speakers.

In addition, the mute function comes in really handy for canceling source signals from the recording room when silence is needed for listening to playbacks.

Apart from the dedicated switch, the elysia skulpter 500 automatically soft starts with the mute function enabled for a short moment, which avoids nasty surprises when powering up.
