    Thanks for the previous assistance.

    Can a channel be un muted when part of a active mute group. Example, you have the band members muted and need one mic turned on for an anoucement ad hoc. On our analog board we could just hit the mute button and it would unmute even if in an active mute group.

    Thanks,

    Dan –

    No, but it would be nice…

    What I do is “select” the involved DCA group, then tap the assigned vocal channel on the touch screen, which unmutes it. That’s 2 taps, which makes this a pretty quick procedure.

    actually the answer is it depends……on how you attribute your mute groups….for example if you made a mute scene instead and assigned this to a softkey then you could…..

    I would post this also in the “suggestions” thread. It would be a nice feature.

    FWIW you can’t even do that on a midas XL4! and that was/is some serious console…..

    I am not sure what you are saying Ray. I have the mute group on a soft key so I can drop the whole mute but some of the the band members like to noodle so there is a risk of extraneous noise. I also have a softkey for anothger mute group with just the worship leader so that is what I would normally swap to. Our previous Ramsa WRSX1 would unmute an individual channel if needed leaving the rest of the members muted. I am not sure that is a good idea on a board with layers anyway.

    Thanks again,

    Dan – Just temporarily unassign the channel from the mute group – but don’t forget to reassign it again. You can do that from either the surface assign button by selecting the DCA (Mute group)hold assign / (de)select channel or from the routing window (DCA assignments)

    that is also how I do it with softkeys……..if i need to unmute anything i just hit the mute button on the strip….that unmutes that channel…..,.hit the mute softkey again or the channel mute key and it’s all muted….the difference is I mute the individual channels and not the Groups or DCAs associated with these…….
