This is how all digital consoles should be..... IMO. Give me a group of faders with scribble strips and let me put whatever I want on each layer.
Yeah, I know what you mean.On Digicos, which I use a lot and also have a completely free console layout, My default is to assign all the inputs and outputs, in order, to the banks on layer A, and then setup my own stuff on the layer B banks.This way I can have my custom layouts, but can also get to everything on the console in only a couple of button presses in a hurry if I need to!
I see both sides of this. I've had significant time on a iLive T80 as well as the CL5 and M7CL.One thing that's bit me several times on the iLive is that you can have channels, DCA's, group's, ... that are active but not on the surface which makes it very hard to find and fix mid program.I think the CL series has a good implementation for this. There are fixed layers where every channel occurs so you can always get to any channel but they also several custom fader layer in each bank of faders so you can lay out how ever you like. I think the CL3 may actually have a bit better setup for Custom layers than the CL5. The reason I say this is the CL3 has 3 custom layers in the "A" bank vs only 2 for the CL5 which gives you more flexibility.Philip

Another feature on the CLs I'd like to see is the ability to set a User Defined Key to recall ALL fader banks as custom pages/faders setup. (this may already exist; I'll hit the Yamaha rep up this afternoon when he's here to find out if I've overlooked it.)In a roundabout way I may be able to do this using scenes but it would be messy, and not work if I'm using scenes during a musical.an example:Fader Bank 'Set 1' - (UDK list chooses from Sets, at least 4 would be great, but as many sets as are possible)Set fader bank A to channels 1-16, set Fader bank B to channels 17-24, set fader bank C to channels 25-32Fader Bank 'Set 2'Set fader bank A to custom A1, set Fader bank B to channels 1-8, set fader bank C to Custom C6etc.
Hi Ric,That was the first "wish" in this thread!"Heard Yamaha is announcing a V2 for CL consoles in May. I would love to see a new UDK function that recalls fader combinations ( ie: channels 1 through 32 or 33 through 64 ) instead of having to push multiple custom keys."« Last Edit: March 12, 2014, 08:21:50 am by Ivan Feder » Report to moderator 188.8.131.52
More flexibility with scene recall - spreadsheet style like DigiCo would be great (musicals)!
