    I need to clear up a patching question. When deploying tie lines from my SQ5 that is delivering thru S-Link DX32 I/Os to a Waves card: do the inputs on the left of the screen correspond to the SQ’s channels 17 thru 24 (It’s “B” layer) or the Dx’s 1 thru 8? The manual and Keith’s U-Tube video did not make it clear to me so maybe he will be able to explain the difference.

    Tie lines are direct connections without channels.

    If you do not understand the question, please do not offer input definitions. Perhaps Keith will be able to provide the appropriate answer.

    If you are patching tie lines, this isn’t related to the input strip patching.
    You can patch your inputs independent of the tie lines.

    In the tie lines tab, you can select the possible input connections to appear on the left.
    DX32 inputs will appear under SLink 1-32. The numbers will correspond with the slot the module is mounted too.

    Slot 1 is 1-8, slot 2 is 9-16 and so on… If there is an output module or no module connected, this is unavailable for patching.

    A tie line input needs no channel representation on the surface.
    But it would help to control the preamp quicker than selecting the I/O page and finding the socket.
    Keep in mind, preamp control is possible on the input page only, not on the tie lines page.

    That is good timely Information, thank you SteffenR. jerimiah Cleaver with Waves set up my Waves card several years ago and established the Digigrid/Waves LV1 protocol to use my DX32 primes and SQ5 for all of my front end Waves studio capture. I recently bought two M-AIN D-Live pre amp banks and when configuring all of the patching required for both Live SR and the Waves card I reviewed Keith’s 1 min U-Tube Video.
    The reason I posted the Waves vs SQ patching clarification request is to ask Keith to consider a more detailed video that delineates the difference between basic SQ patching (that is certainly “Layer specific”) in that the A layer is dedicated to the SQ5’s 16 internal inputs so all ancillary S-Link inputs will not have a sequential relationship: like they do with the patching with a waves card.
    Thank you again for your helpful post SteffenR.

    Nothing is layer specific, you can configure every strip in every layer to every possible channel.
    And it is very easy to double patch inputs.
