Within properties dialog you can link lines either in single channel or in bulk mode, add effects and adjust audio-channels/pads.
The output tab lets you mainly perform linking lines and adding effects to them. For each line there's a combo box listing available linking engines, on the right of it there is a spin button let you choose the input line to be linked. As you have added a plugin by clicking add and selected appropriate effect by using plugin browser dialog. You may remove it by clicking checkbox of the listed plugin and finally click remove. Note you can have a effect only once per channel.
The input tab does the mainly same as output tab in view of input lines. If supported you might assign files, too. In general you connect output to input.
Do linking in batch mode. This means you're able to assign multiple lines at once. Thus you have to decide what start channel on each side to use and the count of lines to be linked.
Adjust audio channels or input/output pads. If supported the GUI may provide more lines and pads as increasing the amount.
