    Hello all,

    I apologize if this has already been answered before. I did a search and read the manual but didn’t really find an answer to my question, unless I skimmed over it. My church has the QU-24 mixer that we bought a few months ago and I am one of two people on the admin user account. Is there a way to lock a scene from being saved over? For instance, Scene 1 is our regular Sunday morning setting, which is recalled every Sunday. Is there a way to prevent someone from saving over that scene if they change the settings for that day? I have told our volunteers if they have to save the settings to save them to a different scene, but in case someone forgets and tries to save it over Scene 1, I would like to block it from being saved, but can still recall Scene 1 as it is now. Thank you for your help!

    When you set up access for non admin users, you can restrict which scenes they can access, but also have a default scene outside that range that the desk starts up with when the log in.
    I’d also keep a copy of any important scenes on a pen drive for backup.

    Also keep a backup at the other end of the list…

    Thank you for your quick replies! I have already saved a copy of the scene onto a flash drive, and whenever I as the admin make changes to Scene 1 and save it, I always save another copy on Scene 50, just in case. I was just wondering if there was a way to prevent them from saving over that scene. They need access to that scene, as that is our regular Sunday morning setting scene, I just want to prevent them from saving something over top of that. Also, I have a non-related question, but it would keep from starting another thread. When recording to the QU-Drive in multitrack, can I play the tracks straight back from the hard drive that the tracks recorded to? Or do I have to connect the hard drive to my computer, drag the files to the play folder, and then connect the hard drive back to the Qu Drive? Just seems like a lot of unnecessary steps if I couldn’t play them straight back from the drive without doing anything else.

    You can play the files straight back – I don’t much like the QU playback mechanics (not particularly easybtransport controls) but for straight play through it works fine.

    Don’t know if a way to lock the scene.
    Best way is possibly to routinely overwrite scene 2 when you load scene 1?

    Why not just limit other user’s access to scene 50 only, and if they edit anything, then simply copy scene 1 back into 50 after the event, restoring to default.
