Master Bus Strip

The Master strip in the mixer

The Master strip in Ardour is very similar to the other busses mixer strips. The list of differences is (from top to bottom):

  • There is no color affected to the master strip
  • The master strip cannot be hidden, so there is not X in the top right
  • It is by definition always solo, so no Solo, Iso or Lock buttons. It is replaced by a button to show the Monitoring section if the session has one
  • It cannot belong to a mix group, so the button is removed.

The Master bus strip is allways fixed, at the right end of the mixer, regardless of the scrolling position.
