Title: Channel priority in deploying (WWB6)
Post by: Andrew Broughton on March 02, 2018, 11:38:41 am
Is there a way to permanently assign priority order when running assign and deploy?
I.e. if I want IEM #1 and 2 to always get the 3-star frequency at the top of the list, is there a way to lock the list so they deploy in the priority I want every time?
Now I drag them into place but it would be great if there were a setting that allows me to set deployment priority permanently.

Iím not certain, but I think that gets saved in the coordination workspace file. Iíll have to try it this weekend.

I haven't tried it but from what i read You can make priority in groups. So make a group in what order You want them coordinated. Put one mic in each group.

Hereís (http://blog.shure.com/shure-wireless-workbench-6-coordination-order/)Shureís video on Coordination Order.

Iíve got 50-some WX mics to start coordinating for next week; Iíll give it a try based on the semi-random inventory I get in.

That video looks to be only about specific product line priorities. I'm speaking of individual units within a same product. A different scenario.

i.e. I have 16 PSM1000 channels and no other wireless. I want unit #1 (the money channel) to be top priority. How do I enable that within WWB?

I can't find anything about Groups other than Monitor Groups. Do you mean Zones? That again looks like something more to do with different areas rather than devices.

Still haven't figured out if there's a way to set priority per channel.

Because WWB doesn't provide that functionality. You can sort of fake it however by creating your own equipment profile (duplicate make/model of your choice but with a new name), use one or two channels of that in your inventory, set its compatibility to the x orders you desire, essentially making it more robust, then set everything else less strict.

WWB has "Inclusion Groups". They're designed to do a couple of different things (and are slightly more complicated to setup than Zones), but once setup they do allow you to set different compatibility levels for devices of the same type.

Coordination software isn't the way to pick the best channel for your money wireless.  After doing your coord, look at each freq in your spectrum analyzer and pick the one with the lowest noise floor with no other freq (or intermod) closer than 400 kHz either side.

Tried that. Doesn't work.

Excellent advice.
I'm curious, though - how does WWB come up with the star rating?

I would like to know this as well. Itís weird that it comes up with this star rating, but doesnít seem to want to act on that rating by itself.
