I just want to press the scene 1 button and then, when I think the stage needs some scene 2, press the button to do it.  Somewhere there's a slider that controls how long it takes.  Never automatic.

NSI N1616

Dont know exactly what your needs are but you can set 16 scenes  on the 16 buttons. There is a fade time slider. All the way off lets you is instant scene switch, turn it up and it'll do a fade.

Not my prefered console by any means but first thing that came to my head with fade control.

The Behringer LC2412 looks like it has a crossfade fader as well. Have only run into one of those once though.

yeh the behringer console i hate...soooo cumbersome and a lot of unnecessary  button pressing juts to record...good luck remembering...lol i did not find it easy..

the chauvet stagedesigner50 is similar but less random button pressing, and 48 scenes with speed timing on a fader...and about $250 +/- $50...

Thanks for the advice.  After looking around, the practical outcome was:- not in my footprint and simplicity range. 

The perameters that I failed to specify were:- the phisical size of another box I need to carry alonside my audio gear and instruments, and also the number of buttons I can work while playing.  Yes, you can buy a foot controller but that's just an on/off device rather than a selector - so not a solution.
Also the computer software idea is a nonstarter.  I can't be running a lappy from the stage.  I need single button operation.  There is also the robustness/transport issue.
So, I guess unless I need to OWN and run a large mobile operation it will have to wait for technology to catch up.

computer based software with a simple midi controller sounds like it'd give you exactly what you want for a decent price point...sub $500 range provided you already own a laptop...

a midi controller WILL give you one button operation. you don't even need to open the laptop, and it will give you the most control of what you're trying to do...

and realistically it won't take any more space than a hardware controller, not to mention costing less for more features...

Here is an example of a foot controller with the ability to set a fade rate for each of the scenes: http://www.lightronics.com/pdfs/fc816m.pdf
Admittedly it operates on LMX protocol, but if you need DMX. converters are available from a number of sources.
Don't know if it is cost effective for you.
