    +1 on the Q option for the shelves! I also feel what you mean by the harshness of the high shelve. I have a hard time coming up with downsides to this console, but the EQ does feel a bit cold to me for some reason.

    Ok, besides that you are right about more urgent stuff waiting, what is your point in arguing here wether my suggestion has priority or not? I think the folks at A&H are capable of deciding themselves which suggestion has to be on top of the list and which one has to be below. But if I don’t suggest it, it might never even be on that list.

    So, nobody said it is urgent or super important, that’s what you made of it.
    If you want an on/off toggle for the EQ bands, then if you didn’t already, make a topic for it :-).

    Let’s say you are a house engineer at a festival on a C3500 (in my case). You have quite some layers but not as much as an S7000. A guest engineer comes in, but he doesn’t have his own file.

    He asks if he can have a custom channel layout, but time is running out and you need to be fast. Do you really want to go removing each-single-channel from the bank by hand? Takes up some time. So, if there was a button on the screen saying ’empty bank’, within a split second you can start from a clean bank.

    Yes, you can drag and drop channels onto other channels and yes, they’ll be replaced exactly the same, but those channel labels on the config screen aren’t super easy to read and you might start making mistakes easily, taking up more time than just ’empty bank’ and start from a clean bank.

    Also, when making custom fader banks, you usually need individual faders and not blocks…

    Besides, yes, cosmetics matter a lot to me to be honest. I don’t want to be looking at channels that have no function. They distract me from what I have to be doing, which is making music.
    You like to do your taxes on a clean desk too, right? Or do you prefer to have 200 other papers laying around while trying to concentrate? 🙂

    I find this much more useful than wether an EQ freq reaches from 20-20k or has to stay between certain frequencies… 🙂

    DC,

    By combined I mean, as Rainer just said, the calculated total signal of all the assigned faders. Not the actual signal, but a series of 1s and 0s that -would- be passing through the ‘group’. Which isn’t, since it’s a DCA. Again, X/M32 style. I don’t think calculating this will take the computer too much effort since the console has an insanely powerful computer.

    Also a group doesn’t have the Spill function. That’s the whole idea. I want to have the spill without losing overview of metering. (Metering screen does this but not as easy to see as the LEDs above the faders)

    Rainer;
    That’s actually a good idea. But then there won’t be a DCA spill function available. I like the idea of pressing the ‘master fader’ (aka dca) mix and seeing the assigned faders immediately. In this case I prefer the spill without metering over ganging with metering. 🙂

    Hey DC,

    Sure, I know that. 🙂

    That’s why I wrote ‘metering of the combined channels assigned to the DCA’.

    By that I mean have the DCA metering act like a group, but drop the processing. Just like for example X32 DCA. I think it’s a great feature.

    Why not use audio groups is also mentioned above. My main goal here is to reduce the numbers of faders used to control the most important elements of my mix. 2 kick faders become 1, 2 (sometimes 3!) snare faders become one, 3-4-5 tom faders become 1,… get the point?

    If I want all those individual channels to be controlled by 1 fader per mic pair ánd have them with metering I’d need audio groups. But then I won’t be able to send my drums to a drumgroup, since they’re already sent to groups. That’s why DCA with metering would solve my problem here.
