    I’m just experimenting and trying to familiarize myself with everything but have run into what seems like bug. I changed one of the DCA masters in the default setup to a mono wedge and then tried to rename it. It says “Wedge” on the channel LCD but when I push the channel select button and then the “Name and Colour” button, the touch screen will not let me access the renaming page. I can select a different channel and get to the renaming screen and then hit the wedge channel select button and get in. However, when I do that the name field shows only one space (blank) character. I can punch in characters but hitting “Apply” doesn’t update anything, and when I leave that screen it still says “Wedge” on the channel.

    I have not yet installed the 1.80 firmware update and am running 1.71 that the unit shipped with.

    One last question: What is the difference between “Strip Select” and “Channel Select” in Channel Selection Mode?

    Thanks.

    I think this is a channel that is designed for the engineer to listen to a mix. You can’t make it go away either. This also confused me when I started playing with the editor. And I could be entirely wrong. Just my guess. Maybe someone else can chime in.

    Looking at a T112/48. :-)

    There are dedicated wedge & iem sends for the engineer, while I’ve never tried to remove them as I understand they are a fixed part of the setup (you can however choose whether or not to have processing on those channels as far as I’m aware).
    Baytonemus, I’m only running editor to my iDR, but ‘strip’ mode for my setup is where you can configure the positions and layers of whatever channel strips you want on your surface (i.e. choosing to put groups and DCAs on the left hand layer 1 etc) – is this what you mean?

    I think this is what’s going here. I assumed “Wedge” was just their nomenclature for a non-IEM monitor “send.” It appears that the name of this specific engineer’s wedge/monitor mix is not editable.

    I think what I’m really trying to learn is how the terms “channel” and “strip” are being used. Are channels what exist on the mix rack and strips the positions into which they are loaded on the surface?

    Yes Channel is the actual DSP channel in the mixrack where audio is routed.

    the channel strip is how you layout your channels on the surface a channel strip can be configured to be whaterver channel type you wish e.g. input, aux, group, main, etc

    Hope this helps
