    HI,

    I’ve just upgraded from a QU-16 to an SQ-5. I’ve used DCA’s in Studio One DAW. In the DAW the faders that are assigned to the DCA move when the DCA moves. On the SQ it seems that the faders controlled by the DCA do not move. Is this normal or did I do something wrong?

    This is normal. I think the reason is to give you the full distance of the channel faders to control the relative volumn of the channels within the group even if the DCA master is on a lower setting.

    Hi Jline,

    Yes this is normal – and comes from the analog Consoles.

    It’s called VCA (Voltage controlles Amplifier) -> see the Block Diagramm.
    There was no need for Motorfaders so the Channelfader could not move… 😉
