    I have an SQ-7 and am using an i-Pad with a MixPad instance running on it. On the SQ-7, on Fader Position 32 (‘A’ page), I am grouped to control a Stereo Input on Faders 45/46 (Stereo ST-1). The Fader on the board in Position 32 is showing the name of the Stereo Pair, and is also displaying the signal LED on the Position as well. On the board, the ganged faders work as expected, including signal detected. On the MixPad, fader Position 32 is showing Ip32, and no signal, and cannot control the Position 32 Channel Strip on the board. It appears that the MixPad Source is directly tied to the input channel, not the Position 32 channel strip on the board itself. Is this true, and is there a way to switch the MixPad to follow the board positions, rather than the direct connection to the Ip-channel? This seems to be wasting Fader Real-Estate for un-used channels and is a disconnect between the board and the MixPad. The Manuals don’t show the connection source between the board and the MixPad either.

    The layers of the SQ are completety customizable. There is no direct relationship between a fader and an input/output.
    On the mixpad you have two different types of layers. The fixed one, grouped by categories, input, mix, fx and so one, and some custom layers, which can be configured by the user an which are not connected to the layers of the SQ itself. That means that changes you make on the SQ will not be shown on the mixpad. Both devices are independent in this case.

    Hello @soundguy,

    As pointed out by Mfk0815 and advised on the ticket, the main layer in MixPad follows the default layout, which is fixed. This does not follow the current lay out of your SQ console.
    You can then create a custom layer, and setup the layout for MixPad as it better suits your needs. This will also not affect the current layout of the surface.

    Cheers,
    Rafael
