Where is the master fader (main) located in Fairlight?

Any ideas how to get a main fader (master fader) on my Fairlight project? Watched a Blackmagic tutorial and the teacher had one but I don't seem to have one in Resolve 18?

New Projects created in Resolve 17 and later use Flexi Bus mode and Busses are named Bus 1, Bus 2, etc.

Fixed Bus Projects behave like Resolve 16 and prior and will feature Main Busses, Sub Busses, and Auxes in the Bus Format window.

Prior to creating a new Timeline in a new Project, the following preference may be enabled:
Project Preferences > Fairlight > Audio Busing Mode > Use Fixed Bus Mapping
⟦ Mac Pro 7,1 Rack ⊕ 16-core 3.2GHz ⊕ 32GB RAM ⊕ Radeon 580X • Resolve Studio 18.1.4 • macOS 12.6.2 ⟧
⟦ Fairlight Studio Console (DAE-3 Bay) • Fairlight Audio Accelerator • Intensity Pro 4K ⊕ Desktop Video 12.4.2 ⟧

As Reynaud says, instead of being called Main and a number, output busses are now called Bus with their number.
