    In the first incarnations of the OS the hardware Q control in the EQ section was able to switch the High or Low band into shelf mode

    I have no idea why this was changed. That is silly…
    it breaks the workflow

    and btw: to use the low band on outputs as high pass would be very nice as well

    This is still accessible from the PEQ screen itself using the screen rotary. Presumably, this is to make sure you don’t change the type accidentally while on another screen.

    I know that two clicks more than needed
    maybe we could have it as a setting

    I miss this feature as well – was really handy in earlier firmware! There might be a few user that didn’t like it, so a setting to switch it on or off would be the solution!
    This switch could be located on the FN-page (function key) in the EQ section or in the user settings at the setup screen.

    My guess is that it would be harder to use the width knobs on the SuperStrip without the help of the touch screen since you wouldn’t see when it “kicks” to shelving mode. That way you can have other information displayed while doing your EQ. I would find it confusing if I’m only relying on my ears to do the EQ when the shelving would kick in.

    From a UI perspective I can see why it doesn’t. It’s a completely different operation to the previous n clicks on the same control.

    Something displaying on screen and allowing you to twiddle down to it might be possible, but I guess the UI guys want a fair gap between widest and shelving…

    (Hence the request for it as a setting I suppose)

    hmmm, the 01V had this feature 15 years ago

    what about the highpass filter in the outputs?

    I also think, that the bandwidth setting in the SuperStrip section should behave similar to the screen rotary knob. The behavior that is implemented now is from my point of view inconsistent and confusing …

    I agree with steffenromeiss
    This is the second post about this.
    And I got the similar remark

    “This is still accessible from the PEQ screen itself using the screen rotary. Presumably, this is to make sure you don’t change the type accidentally while on another screen.”

    Well that’s fine for some, however it ALLWAYS broke my work flow
    To stop and think whilst mixing on the fly “now how do I get that to shelf” just is a pain in the …..
    Slows the work flow down!

    Maybe a soft key shelf toggle?

    The advantage the rotary has is that you can see the shelf kick in.

    bump again

    maybe we can connect these setting to the switching to the processing screen if a handle is used, I always have it on, I like it
    and in this case you can see if you change to shelf

    QSC Touchmix has a decent implementation I’d like to see adopted by A&H.
    The normal 4-band PEQ plus a separate shelving buttons (High and Low) and a separate variable High-Pass/Variable Low Pass Low Pass w/button all right there on the PEQ screen. No looking around, no twisting an encoder or slider (iPad app) to get to shelving or filters.
