    It's just a line-level input really but it would normally be used for the signal from whatever medium you're mixing down to(2-track reel-to-reel , DAT etc)

    It would usually have it's own level control(fader/Pot) and can then be routed to aux/monitor outs/master etc but won't have all the features of a regular mixer-channel(eq/Dynamics/insert points /Routing options etc..).
    It's usually just used for monitoring
    a signal.
