    You have the two options I explained previously. You have to do the one or the other. It is not required to do both.

    It can be a benefit to adjust the gain of the two sockets independently. Not always both signals of a stereo source have the same level. But if you want to bring both gains to the same level you have two choices. 1) make the stereo channel to two mono channels, adjust the gains of both sockets and make them again to a stereo channel (but that means you will have two short periods of time when all audio is muted) or 2) assign one of the to sockets as the input socket of an unused mono channel and adjust the gain of the socket on this channel.

    Hmm, maybe its time to free yourself from the narrow mind that what A&H has implemented and you voted for the best solution ever, is also the best for others. Imagine that some of us, me too, will use scenes like a document, as you will use on your PC at home. You can load that document/scene into the processor/mixing console and manipulate that document. Then you want to simply save that changes with the same name on the same place in the storage. Thats why applications on your PC knows where the document is loaded from an also present that information to the user. If the document is modified in the application this might be shown too. You can delete or rewrite the whole content of the document, then name remains the same. So, why do you ever think that the same behaviour is not handy or needed on a mixing device? What are the great benefits to loose that information right after loading the scene? Why should it be not ok that A user can load a scene, modify some few parameters and is able to save it to the same place of the storage without the need to „remember“ that scene name and location outside of the console? And why you always think your way of thinking is the only right one?

    Since the effects are also available on the flagship model (dLive) you can find a brief description of the effects DEEP or RackFX in the reference manual of the dLive at https://www.allen-heath.com/dlive-home/dlive-documents/

    You know that that competitor, if I think about the same as you do, comes with 6 mono matrices? If someone will run stere main, subs, delays, stream, tv, broadcast, …. in stereo you will for sure run quickly into the limitations their too. But maybe you think about a newer product which was released years after the SQ was designed.

    While most of the studio requirements can be fixed with an external studio controller, the SIP mode of the PAFL system have to be implemented in the console itself, with the possibility to define busses and channels from being muted while some other channel is soloed.
    For me I do not see any problems when the console will be more versatile and covers more use cases in future. I do nit think that live engineers will be completely confused and will make a lot of mistakes when there is a SIP mode possible with the PAFL system. Also switchable MONO and DIM on the listen bus, via soft buttons, is not a big deal when the operator do not expose that functions via soft buttons to the surface.

    Just if it is not meaningful for you, it could be helpful for others. And do you think a company like yamaha is doing this just because some developers have too much time?
    For me that information would be at least helpful when storing data permanently as scenes and also when saving the show. Especially after some power cycle.

    But this is an open forum and everyone can post some feature suggestions, regardless whether others can see the benefit or not. So be so kind and open your mind and do not use such hard phrases like „makes no sense anyway“. Say further more something like „I can see not benefit for me“ or „makes no sense for me“.

    Hmm, sometimes it would be helpful to look over the border of the dish and/or use you fantasy.
    For instance all yamaha mixers, at least the one I know, display the name of the scene, last recalled or last saved, together with an indicator, whether the scene is changed or not. After starting the console you also will see the scene and status of it. Even the inexpensive X32 can show us the „current scene“. For some users this information is really helpful.
    IO status? What about a display which io slot is in use and which stageboxes are connected and stuff like that. Also very helpful.

    the experiences in the last 25years show the opposite… there are always people that complain about not realized features

    Hmm, my expierience is that the „behind closed door“ policy will raise the expectation of the customer far more than a list of possible features. And that higher expectations will result infar more disappointment than the other way around.

    I am part of a software development team, which is working on a product since almost twenty years. Some years ago we started to communicate our development plans open minded with our customer and that was a huge success for us. Our relationship with our customers is better than before because they are now somehow team members. So, believe me, I know what I am talking about.

    There is a huge difference between in house testing and what happens out there in the wild. Tester of the manufacturer do a certain set of tests but users do complete different things, combine the device with others the the in house tester and so on. The real truth of the quality of a software version is only revealed when customer will use it.
    And I think the time window for a safe release of 1.9 is closed now. Because when now the customer will use their devices for the upcoming events, nobody will risk to work with the new feature release. In the time between the last feature release and the next one they will include a lot of more or less complex features, I guess, and that will lead to bigger changes of the software. So it would be a good idea when customer reserve a lot of time to test the next feature version very intensive.

    And I personally see no real reason why not to publish the planned features from the very beginning of the development of the next version. That will allow customers to somehow vote for the one or the other and will help the manufacturer to control that list. And I think nobody will be disappointed when not all feature will be part of the next version. That is for me just an excuse not to publish such a list. It is just a question of how to organize your customer relationship and your software development process.

    The groups just disappear from the layer. You can add the remaining auxes to the desired layer using the strip assign screen.

    you cannot define which FX parameters, from FX1 to FX8, should be recalled and which not. either all parameters are recalled or none. But it is not possible to recall the parameters of FX1 to FX4 and FX5 to FX8 remains untouched. It is always all or nothing.

    I vote for a solo safe function for the SQ.

    just a few will use the desk as a real studio console for mixing

    Maybe this can be changed if some features will be implemented which are very handy in studios.
    Nowadays we should forget the distinction between live and studio devices at all. I am used to use the mixing console for live events and also at home when I do some recordings. And I do not want to mix my recordings “in the box” because I like real mixing consoles. If I need to listen a channel with the effects, I need to mute all other channels now. But that is not an elegant solution.
    And even such discussion were done several times it makes it not less important to talk about such features.

    the Clavia Nord I mentioned as an example that keyboards can produce high level output and that you run into problems if you use active DI boxes. Nothing more and nothing less.

    I had several problems with active DI boxes and keyboards/synthesizers in the past. Especially Clavia Nord can produce high output gain which can cause distortion in active DI boxes. (I mainly used the AR133. So I am used to use passive DI boxes for keys. Only for those, which needs a impedance correction, I use active DI boxes.
