    Would be nice only having to press the select button a second time to go back to the last selected or back by default to master LR sel button channel just like it does with the mix buttons. My main reason for asking this is since we can’t use the Fader Flip while without selecting a mix master first, I think it would be faster for me.

    Oh and while I’m at it, pressing two or more Sel buttons to link the faders temporaly just for level control.

    That is a very good idea!

    Sort of a temporary DCA (only with actual motorised movement rather than a digital delta?)
    An interesting concept, one I’m not quite sure what the value is over a DCA – I suppose I could group the band and pull them all down as I raised the master fader???

    Hitting select should always select that channel, I can see the value of “return to last channel” but the “return to last mix” isn’t that, it’s “return to LR” (at least I *think* it is). So which channel get’s “priority”?

    In another thread I pointed out that Fader Flip has no role in a channel, so it should just apply to whichever mix is selected at a given time – thus negating the “double button” aspect.

    This is what I actually want. It would return you to the Sel of the master LR (like the mix buttons return you to the mix LR). Return to the last used channel was just an extra :). I just want a faster way to go back to the GEQ. So your idea of using the Fader Flip at anytime would be great and preferable over the “tap Sel” twice.

    Exactly that; a temp DCA. For the DCAs, you need to set them up. Don’t want to have to do that just for a quick use once in a while but I think I’d be quite happy if the DCA actually had motorized movement. I like to keep my master on unity so yes if I need to lower the whole band, I`d prefer to do it on the channel strips.

    DCA’s explicitly don’t move the faders – I can tend to grab enough faders (and or have “likely” DCAs set up).
    I’m still struggling to see where/when I’d actually use such a grouping.

    Having slept on it I can see the value, but can also see myself really screwing up – by leaving the channels grouped when I shouldn’t or accidentally ungrouping them.

    The idea was to have them grouped just for that use (You’d see the Sel buttons lighted up for the chosen channels). They would ungroup when pressing another Sel.

    Yep, that’s how I saw it working, I can just see myself making a right pigs ear of using it…
    Then again I can make a pigs ear of pretty much anything…
