    Hi,
    I just receive my sq5 and on the Ipad the custom layer are empty while not on the desk…

    @Hugo,

    Every instance of SQ-MixPad has fixed channel-type access plus 6 custom strips, which are independent from the console fader layers.
    This is so you can have two engineers running the same console or fixed access to certain channels for example.
    However, if you want to copy layers from the desk (or just some of them) to the custom strips, just use the ‘Copy Desk Layer’ button at the top right of the ‘Setup > Custom Strip’ screen in MixPad.

    Cheers,
    Keith.

    @keithjah

    does the mixpad mirror the strip layout from the desk?
    I remember it that way…

    When I bring my own custom layout in place on a MixPad instance
    is this layout stored without the console connected?
    Is there a way to restore MixPad Custom layer layout to the console?

    Hi Steffen

    the desk layer can be copied to mixpad. There is a dedicated button in mixpad-> setup in the upper right corner. It will ask, which layer you which to copy from the desk to mixpad.
    Other than that you can have completely different custom layers. I don´t think there is the option to push mixpads custom layer to SQ.

    If I remember correctly: that last show, that is pulled to mixpad is available in the offline mode..but maybe I´m wrong about that

    Cheers

    Hey @steffen R,

    So all the different strip layouts available are:

    SQ Surface A-F – Main 6 layers on the console itself.
    SQ-MixPad ‘Custom’ (online) – 6 independent layouts, can be copied from desk layers.
    SQ-MixPad ‘Layers’ (offline) – These are the layers you would see on the console itself if the show was recalled there.
    SQ-MixPad ‘Standard’ (online/offline) – fixed layers for quick access to any Inputs, Mix, FX, DCAs, Mute Groups, SoftKeys.

    So I think the confusion is that when offline in SQ-MixPad you see the layers as you would on the console (so you can set them up correctly when away from the desk), but then online you see the 6 custom layouts (that allow for the separate control on each instance of MixPad mentioned above).

    Cheers!
    Keith.
