The Level meter displays the signal level of the wave signal. You can see the level of each output to
compare them and adjust the level on the basics of these meters. If you wish to send out a wave file to an
external device, refer to the level meters to adjust the signal to the proper level.
3. Output Level Indicator
The Output Level Indicator shows the current level setting for each of the outputs. You can compare the
output levels based on this indicator in order to adjust the output level to a desired level. Move the output
level fader in order to set it to a proper level.
!!! Caution!!! – The Wave Out Level Fader can be misunderstood to control the outputs of the MAYA44
that comes from output ports 1~4. The MAYA44 Wave Output Level Fader is able to control the level of
the waves that are generated by the computer. It can NOT control all output levels.
42
4. ‘M’ – Analog 1,2 Master Output / Monitoring – This button is most important. The function is that
send wave output to Analog out 1,2 port and you can monitor it. So Analog Out 1,2 becomes Master
Output.
