    Hi folks,

    I’m working most of my time with classical orchestras and big corporate Events (80+ Inputs). I’m very happy with my DLIVE S-Class :).
    In the workflow I hardly miss the ‘Multi Select Feature’ (i.e. LAWO, Stagetech). It’s a very helpful thing if you have to edit some or many channels with the same parameters (i.e. HPF, EQ, Gain…). In my opinion, it’s not the biggest challenge for the programmers to implement this top-class feature in the workflow.

    I’d like to have this feature by press and hold the SEL-Key from the first channel and then press the last channel SEL-Key for the channelblock. Now all parameter changes working for all these channels. By pressing another SEL-Key you can disable the multiselect and work on single channels.

    Agreed that would be a useful feature for orchestral work, sadly that is the exception not the rule so can’t see it happening anytime soon.☹️

    maybe something like a “Quick Gang”
    with an User Key to add channels to the Gang

    This is something I use on Yamaha PM10/PM7 all the time and its awesome. Yes I understand different cost point. But A&H already has the best, fastest work flow. This would just push the desk that much further. Maybe even an All button (like Digico does it would work) for editing banks of channel parameters. This in conjunction with DCA spills is a fast way of working.

    Yes, would be a good feature!

    I’d like to join you here, too.

    I think the idea of pressing two SEL buttons is good and easy. To recognize the function the SEL buttons of the selected channels could blink slowly. I think that would be important.

    Should select buttons on an IP8 be treating differently?

    They could basically just copy Soundcraft Vi on this. Vi has its faults, but this specific feature is pretty much implemented perfectly.

    but the Souncraft Vi has hardware to support that funktion. we don’t have hardware like this on the dLive
    so we have to find a workaround to handle these

    On Vi you just hold down the select buttons to select a range. This works for copy/pase, saving to/loading from library, and gang selection. There is a ‘gang’ button for ganging, but that could just be a user button. No biggie.

    I was referring to the blue gang button and the blue select…

    if we get a user button for multiple selects how do we handle the workflow?

    holding the user button and pressing select would add channels to the “GANG” and then?
    what to do to get out of the gang?
    something in the screen?

    no, a softkey with the function “gang” and the SEL buttons are sufficient to select the desired range.
    So first press the “gear” softkey, then two SEL keys to mark the channels.
    then the SEL buttons flash.
    To end the action, simply press the “gang” softkey again.

    to remember… we have no fixed layout
    so this is not possible on the dLive
