    The automixer insert should be POST-MUTE like on Yamaha consoles. Right now, rather insanely, muted channels still contribute to the automix pool. This means you have to be constantly in the automixer window turn the channels on and off if say, you are doing 16 lavaliers in sequential panels of 4. This process is made worse by the fact that the fader inexplicably flies to zero when you turn a channel on in auto mixer.

    Yamaha made their inserts available as POST-MUTE (post-on) many years ago to accomate dugan cards.

    Please please do this! This makes the GLD much, much worse for automixer applications than a Yamaha QL/CL despite the fact that it will do more channels than either one. I can’t even think of a scenerio where you would want the automixer to be pre-mute, as it is.

    +100. Makes no sense that AMM was implemented in the way it is currently. Basically defeats the purpose.

    Hi All,

    You’ll be pleased to know this has been taken on board and will be implemented in a firmware release before the end of the year.

    Nicola, Thank you for the info. I do hope this update is significant. Any other hints as to what is being implemented?

    Brilliant. Thanks for this. While you’re at it, please work on the automixer parameters so it’s faster and drops less words. Rent a Yamaha QL/CL for an afternoon and put lavs on 4 people. GLD will fail to give full gain to the person talking, wiggling then around a few db down even when the other inputs are as quiet as possible. This results in inconsistent volume of the ‘hot’ channel. Yamaha is super fast, but also manages to nearly never accidentally reduce the level of the ‘hot’ channel.
