Using FLX S 48 as a manual desk


Recommended Posts

From time to time, the excellent FLX S48 in our multi-user venue is likely to be used as a manual board to set up a few generics on faders, then to raise and lower levels, eg for a talk.  Is there a simple way that the Master Playback fader can be set up as a master fader to bring up and down whatever group of faders has been chosen - in channels 1-24 only - without the need for an untrained user to record any cues?

See Special Playback Functions in the manual.

Never tried it but the manual does say "there’s nothing special or different about the Master Playback compared to the other playbacks"

You should also be able to set it up as an inhibit master if there are channels (like your house lights) that you don't want it to control.

If you would like the Master Playback fader to control the total intensity output of the console, it can be configured as a Grand Master. For more information see the link below...

As @Davidmk mentions, you could create an Inhibit Master, to allow you to scale the intensities of particular fixtures. This can be done by setting all the fixtures that you wish to scale with the Master Playback fader to full. You can then tap RECORD, and tap the Master Playback's button to record the cue. Then, you can go into the playback settings. To do this press and hold SETUP and tap the Master Playback's button. Under the Intensity Mixing option, choose Inhibit and click OK. Now, to be able to output the fixtures you recorded onto the Master Playback, you will need the Master Playback to be raised. It can then be lowered to inhibit the levels. For more information on Inhibit please see the link below...

I hope this helps, if you have any questions let us know.
