The first two channels will always be dedicated to the Master out (L) or Aux bus (L), and the remaining six channels can record the direct ("dry") or processed ("wet") audio from the six audio inputs. With discrete channels of audio, you have much more precise control of audio mixing (or correction) in postproduction.

A further (and related) consequence relates to the demand--in firms differing in managerial human capital--of "information-type" inputs. It is advanced here that an increase in the V/T ratio will go hand-in-hand with increasing costs of input misallocation.
