Overall master fader

Recommended Posts

Guest Nick

Hello, I am interested in buying a Zero88 FLX 24 but I heard that there is no overall master fader, only a playback master, will that be assignable as a master fader in the future?

Hi Nick,

The 24 faders on the left hand side of the console can either be channels, or what we call "Playbacks". You can assign any of these Playbacks, plus the Master Playback fader under the touchscreen to be what we call a "Grand Master" fader, which allows you to control the overall output of the console.

Hope that helps, any queries let me know

How do you assign the master play back fader  to act as grand master? i cannot seem to figure that out. also i cannot figure out how to go to blackout.

Hi Steve,

If you haven't recorded anything onto the Master Playback, hold SETUP and tap the Master Playback's GO button. You will then be able to choose "Grand Master". The fader will then act as the Grand Master, and the Master Playback's button will act as a Blackout.

Hope that helps, any queries let me know.

I have another question about the FLX but I'm not sure how to formulate it so opening a new topic with a very confusing title wouldn't be the best idea.
We still would like to buy a FLX 24 and we also want to invest in some more led fixtures but that might be a problem for technicians that bring their own console.
Is it possible to keep the FLX in the chain, using a DMX merger, for choosing the colors and zoom etc for the fixtures and to patch it, so the guest technician can patch as if he's patching conventional lights, so he only controls the intensity.

I hope the above makes some sense and someone can answer the question.

Hi Nick,

Yes that is possible, depending on your fixtures and the merge that you use.

Is there any reason the Guest Technician wouldn't use the FLX S? 

Keeping one control console always makes things easier, and if the guest technician wants to use the console and just control intensities you could always use the Remote App to control the colour and zoom remotely, whilst they stick to controlling intensities.

Well, I'm talking about a small theatre setting so sometimes people take their own console with the show already programmed, all they have to do is patch the fixtures and check the intensities, but most shows are still made on conventional lights so it would be handy to tell them patching won't be too much of a hassle because of the led fixtures in our theatre
