XR12 RTA screen PRE button

What is the PRE button function on the RTA screen? If it should connect the RTA post or pre fader, I can not obtain this.
Please advise. Thanks.

Since the RTA display is part of the EQ section of the mixer the pre setting applies to where the RTA is sourced from. Normally it shows the audio after EQ. Therefore the Pre setting shows the un-EQ'd audio.

Thanks. As I read your statement the pre button position is self explaining.

Has anyone else noticed change in sound between “pre” &  “post” on the RTA for mains?

There will not be any change in sound, since the pre and post taps are to the RTA display only. Adjusting the EQ will change the sound if that EQ is enabled, irregardless of the pre/post RTA setting. But the display will change.
