Best answer

In the Studio One mixer, a small “Z” at the bottom of the output channel fader indicates the availability and type of monitoring. Blue stands for low-latency hardware monitoring, Green for low-latency software monitoring. The mode is set in the Audio>Processing preferences panel (“Use native low latency monitoring instead of onboard DSP”). Low-latency monitoring still needs to be activated by clicking the “Z” button on the respective output channel(s).
