Our pastor likes to have walk-in music playing. With a digital board, it works very nicely to setup ducking on that music. This allows the pianist to start playing 5-10 minutes before the service and the occasional pre -service announcement even if the media team is tied up doing last minute service prep.
That is, until the music does not get stopped/turned down. The ducking releases about the time pastor goes to make opening remarks.
I am using the ST1 inout on our QU-32-so that channel is on the 2nd layer. I could use a custom layer or move it-that would give a visual reminder that that input is still active. I think I would prefer something like an obnoxious light to remind us the music is not off (its too easy to think "he shut it off".)
I could design something from scratch-but rather than re-invent the wheel does anyone have a suggestion for an inline signal detector that I can place between the source and the mixer input?
