    If only external inputs to a single stereo fader strip can be combined? See manual http://www.allen-heath.com/media/dLive-Firmware-Reference-Guide-V1.3.pdf site 41.
    I would also combine with pleasure the inputs in the surface to a single fader strip (not Gang group). There the stereo devices as for example CD player, media player etc. are mostly connected directly in the surface.

    Hi GerMan,

    If you’re looking to combine channels outside of stereos and gangs, would DCAs or Groups do the trick? (Manual page 32).

    This is not the desired option. As well as with MixRack there should also be for the Surface the option set two channels as single stereo fader strip.

    Hi GerMan,

    I’m not sure I understand your post. When configuring a stereo input channel in dLive, as described in the guide, you can indeed use a single fader strip to control that channel. For example the AES stereo inputs in Layer F of the template Shows use single fader strips.

    Was this request meant for GLD (I’ve noticed you posted in the GLD forum too)?

    Hi German,

    Any source can be patched to any input channel. Then, any pair of odd/even channels can be made stereo. (Please see page 26 of the manual for more on patching.) You could for example, patch the first two inputs of the surface to channel 1 & 2, and then pair them stereo. You could then place those two channels as a stereo single fader strip anywhere you like on the surface.

    You can absolutely set surface sockets to form a stereo pair, just as you can from the mixrack.

    Hello Nicola,
    singles stereo fader strip can be activated apparently only for input channals in the MixRack. In the Surface (input 1-8) this direct option is not possible. Only they AES/EBU input channals 9/10 an 11/12 are single stereo fader strip. Or have I overlooked what?
    The direct option in the dLive does not have the GLD also in the Expander. This was the reason for my question in the GLD forum.

    @michael: But which of 128 input channals (manual page 41) is the 8 xlr inputs of the Surface?

    Thanks for the help!

    Hi GerMan,

    dLive has a fully customisable patch system. The Surface inputs can be patched to ANY channel (1-128). Look at the I/O Screen / Inputs / Surface Input Sockets to see where they are patched. On a template Show, they are patched to channel 115-126 (127-128 is the USB playback).

    So for example if you make channel 119-120 Stereo in Mixrack / Config / Input Stereos, you can then use a single fader strip to control that stereo pair. The Mixrack / Config / Input Stereos menu deals with the DSP channel configuration (that’s why it says Mixrack). Where the inputs are sourced from is irrelevant.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Nicola,

    oh, I see, now I understand it (see screenshot). Many thanks for the help. 🙂
