QL 1/5 monitor mix questions
« on: October 09, 2018, 10:39:04 am »

Two questions for QL1 / QL5 console drivers:

1. Is there a fast and easy way to 'zero out' a specific mix (e.g., set all channel send levels to that mix to zero)?

2. Is there a fast and easy way to copy a monitor mix (e.g., set the specific channel send levels for one mix to be the same as another mix)?

These would be particularly helpful in working with mixes built from channels spread across two layers.  Thanks in advance.

1. I think Channel Job/Default would work, just set the parameters you want to zero. i.e. the Mix Sends.
2. For Mix to Mix, probably Channel Job/Copy from one mix to another, with "With Mix Send" selected.

Thanks very much.  The copy solution works a treat, but I've not found any selectable parameters for the default function.

The easiest way I've found for resetting mixes to zero is just to go into Sends on Fader and push all the faders down. It's quick enough that I never bothered to learn the official way to do it.

Otherwise known as the "oh shit, I fucked something up" method.

To clear many aux sends quickly, I go to mixer setup, turn them all into fixed mixes, then turn them back to variable mixes.

Doesn't that also change them to post-fade?

Question is, is it zero (0 db) or dead silent zero (∞ db).....

Had a guy [way back in the analog days] that used to "zero out" the desk by placing every knob at unity since "that means it's having zero effect, so that's zero".  Seriously.  On a 56 input desk with 18 Aux Sends.  Very Bright Guy, but after a few gigs out in the field he was sent back into the Lab where he belonged.
