    You can use the USB port on the front of the desk to record straight to a hard drive. You can record up to 32 channels at 48KHz or up to 16 at 96KHz.

    I’m sure that those of us who need control of everything would be happy with sysex messages. I’m working in a relatively simple radio broadcast environment and I keep finding ‘just one more thing’ I need to have midi control of. I’m sure that those having to integrate with control systems in other areas such as video or live sound, will be finding even more reasons to need midi control than I do. The only sensible solution is, ‘if it can be controlled, let us control it’. For my own use case, I don’t really care whether we do this over midi or via the MixPad API as I’m writing the code for doing the control, however I suspect that the best solution for commercial purposes is to implement midi control so that the SQ can be used with the plethora of midi control systems already out there.

    Native MIDI support is needed for my use case – Raspberry Pi computers running linux and making the SQs more broadcast friendly.

    Just switch to Aux 1 with the buttons down the right hand side, and hit the pafl button above the main fader.

    Sorry for the delayed reply Chris. I thought I’d typed a reply not long after you sent your message, but it hasn’t shown up. I think the Scene Change approach could be made to work, but I suspect it would cramp my style using scenes in day to day use. I’ve gone with the ‘waste an extra channel’ approach for now.

    MarkPAman – used your suggestion today. Works a treat, and that’s 4 mics and cables off my desk 🙂

    Thanks. MarkPAman’s solution does have the advantage of one button press to talk to an individual source, and retains the ‘press talk to talk to everyone’ I currently have. I’ll give it a whirl. The ‘turn the red light off to talk to this source’ element will be counter intuitive when someone else needs to operate the desk, but that won’t be happening for a while!

    Mike C, thanks – I had been mulling using midi and writing some software to implement some of the radio studio functionality I need. As well as the talkback routing, I also need to be able to turn the studio loudspeakers off when a mike channel is faded up, and add some more sophisticated monitoring controls – optional M&S on the meters, loudspeaker dim, loudspeaker cut L, cut R, mono to loudspeakers, polarity reverse one loudspeaker. All radio studio essentials which I implement with the Glensound monitoring unit in the picture. I suspect that at least the majority of these could be implemented by some cute routing, muting and soft key tricks.

    Thanks for the input. Although this might be considered a special situation, say in the live sound arena, it’s absolutely bog standard in radio (and TV), so the feature would make SQ much more appealing in those areas.
    I can certainly choose which mixes to send talkback to, even on the talkback config screen, without running mix-app, but this and the scene suggestion are just too slow for live radio. Everything is happening so quickly, if you can’t dive straight on a button then you’re too late. My pile of switched mics is solving my problem for now, if a little inelegantly 🙂
