    We are a new user of a GLD-80 and some ME1’s. We used a Soundcraft LX7 before, so we have a huge amount to learn. I have a number of questions as we learn how to drive this setup.

    One question is; how do I assign one button on the ME1 to choose a L&R keyboard input. On the GLD I have assigned the L & R direct input to a stereo group. Then I assign this stereo group to a fader on the GLD and it works great as a FOH.

    However, if I add this stereo group to the ME1 Monitor patching, it seems to work ok on the ME1, but it works as a post-fade, which is not what I want. Is there a way to change it to pre-fade, or should I be doing this a different way?

    I know I could create a group on the ME1 itself for the keyboard, but I want to do this setup on the GLD as we have a few ME1’s and I don’t want to have to repeat this setup multiple times.

    Please help?

    Hi Sean

    If I understand your issue correctly, you can get this to work by routing the keyboard channels ‘input direct out’ to an odd-even pair in the Monitors tab of the outputs page. For example, ‘Keys Left’ to Monitor channel 3, and ‘Keys Right’ to channel 4. You can then set these as a stereo pair by touching either of the monitor output channels (3 or 4), and switching on ‘stereo link’ in the bottom left corner.

    Now if you set up a key on the ME-1, it will only allow you to use the first of these two channels; when selected, this will be a stereo channel on the ME-1.

    Hope this helps

    – Jeff, A&H

    Hi Jeff

    Thanks for the post. I’ll try it out and let you know how it goes, but it sounds like it will do what we want.

    Cheers, Sean

    Hi Jeff

    I gave this a whirl, and this opens up anther question. If I assign these to Monitor channels 25/26 (say), how do I access these from the ME-1? The ME-1 only has 16 buttons, and these access monitor channels 1-16.

    Sorry, this seems a low-level question, but this is where we are at! I’m clearly missing something in my understanding.

    Thanks, Sean
