I figured that would be the case...ah well! The remote switches idea sounds good though. I'll try it out.
The reasoning behind running looped cuestacks from the SX buttons is simplicity, just hit the button and the thing goes without you having to mess with manually loading the cues in the Playback X. We'd just prefer that all the 'operator' needs to worry about touching is the SX buttons and the subs. Many times I have found that someone 'accidentally' did something causing the lights to stop working (not to mention a 'what have I done?' phone call at 3am).
It would be nice to have this 'idiot proof' ability when needed. I have seen many club managers/owners/non-tech people's eyes glaze over when they see the console, it all just goes way over their heads and they can never remember the simplest instructions on how to properly get around the desk.
How hard would this be to implement? Also I've been thinking macros would be nice to have for utilities like home fixture, douse lamp, etc.
