    Inspired by the work by ThatComplicatedMidiGuy, I thought it might be useful to provide a more generic example, so I created a Config with 8 Layouts, each assigned to a dLive User Profile (with default user names) and controlling a St Aux. Each Layout has tabs to access channels 1-64, with controls for send level and pan, assign on/off (can be inverted for ‘mute’), chromatic channel meters, master level and mute. It also displays the dLive channel names using dynamic labels.
    Hopefully a good starting point that can be customised to suit different device sizes or strip layouts.

    @ Nicola – I dig what you did with the chromatic meters instead of the full standard meters, it’s a nice touch. I presume you’re using the row of send-assign buttons to effectively mute/unmute sends to that mix? I was hesitant to add that in my layouts, because turning the fader all the way down effectively does the same thing, and I was worried band folk would accidentally hit those. (…and then I’d have whiny band folk wondering why they couldn’t hear something.)

    @ThatComplicatedMidiGuy

    When you say 10 user logins per console, is that a combination of Custom Control/Director/MixPad or is that 10 instances of each?

    #85757

    It’s 10 user logins, period. Users are stored on the console, so however you dole that out, you get 10.

    So in my case, I have: admin, band, non-redzone volunteer, Pack 1-5 (5x IEM user logins for Custom Control,) and two spares.

    I’ve setup a user for each of our techs which recalls their scene.
    I have setup another user called Onemix, which my band log onto with the Onemix app. Within their app I have setup their designated IEM mix. I’ve successfully had 4 band members using the app and all logged into the same user profile. No issues so far.
    I’m not sure if this the correct way to manage multiple onemix connections, but otherwise I would need 30+ user accounts
    minimum, to cover band and techs.

    Does anyone have any thoughts about this method ?

    There is no issue whatsoever with multiple users sharing the same user profile. The only limitation is the total number of TCP connections to the MixRack (40).
    The reason multiple user profiles are required for the Custom Control ‘personal monitor’ example discussed here, is only because the design choice was to have a specific UI per user profile (each assigned to a different Aux).

    Hi Nicola,
    I haven’t tried Custom control yet.
    In my earlier reply, I’m using a single user login for my OneMix users, and assigning an iem mix in the their app.
    Is this correct way?
    It’s working with no issues so far.

    I have 8 techs so need to have 8 user profiles.

    Hi Ash,
    Yes that’s correct. The use of user profiles with OneMix is simply to distinguish between Admin and user access. All users can share the same user profile.

    Nicola, thanks so much for that config file. Very helpful! Now I just need to configure something similar for the iPhone. My users would make best use out of it if it was an iPhone app. But this is great for me to see how everything should ideally be laid out and configured. Thanks!!
