    Yeah thanks Toby – I had also worked that out as an option however the DCA assignments are still stored with the input mixer – fader levels etc will still all get recalled so you may as well just use the channel mute switches! Back to square one with no separate mutes! Hey – saw your iDR32 rack set up pic’s on your other post. Looks good but your rack must be very deep? I need to get a shock mount case for my IDR48 rack – where do you get yours from/made in NZ? Cheers

    Thanks for the link Lieven. I have also found an interesting multi cable here:
    http://www.linkusa-inc.com/Products/tabid/80/CategoryID/1/List/1/Level/a/ProductID/8064/Language/en-US/Default.aspx?SortField=ProductNumber%2cUnitCost

    This cable has 2 x CAT5, 2 x Audio pair, and mains power. The signal possibilities down this could be the iLive ACE digital, Intercom, DMX, Video etc or redundant CAT5 (or both CAT5’s used if you have the big Daddy iLive desk)

    Good to know that there is a MIDI bug – I’ve been trying to get fader levels controlled by midi but they just jump all over the place! Mutes, Scene recalls work fine over midi. My objective is to have a custom midi controller that I can use with a Laptop to control the mix rack without a surface from FOH for smaller gigs/ corporate work etc. My wish is that A&H offer a “Mackie Control” MIDI mode as a MC would make an excellent controller. Oh – but then why would you need those PL remote things? A MC could offer moving faders, select, mute, solo, mix buttons, encoders, display, fader banks etc.

    On the Theatre front I to believe that there needs to be far greater flexibility for the scene save/edit/recall system. The biggest problem I see is that in scene edit mode with just the input mixer selected the scene stores ALL input mixer settings and so mutes, all channel assignments (including DCA assignments) and aux levels cannot be stored independently of each other. You also can’t currently store information just for some selected channels. For theatre I would like to only recall say the Radio mic channels/mutes, without recalling Orchestra channel settings (I Know you could Scene safe those channels). Other parts of the show may need different things stored/recalled. More options please A&H? If these save options do become available in future upgrades then a user save library setting would be good so that you can have your “User” scene save settings – with a User defined key or even better a key combination such as hold the ALT View key and press the scene GO button to store your default “User” scene or to update an existing one. I’ve got lots more ideas but …work to do .. so L8r. Stix

    Aren’t you already using the A port to connect the surface to the mix rack? My understanding is that the ACE A network is handling mainly control data and the local audio, pafl etc that goes to/from the surface. Thats only 16 channels from surface inputs, 12 channels to the surface outputs, plus PAFL mix. I think you need the port B expansion card to add the iDR32 for a totally independent monitor mix. Correct me if I’m wrong someone.

    Do you have a contact web address for pinnason spain? That cable sounds just what I’m after and I can’t find any info online. Cheers Stix

    Graham,

    I ordered a cable from pinnason in spain. they have a new cable with 2CAT5+1audio+1power. price is verry reasonable. Ref 5057. It is so new that it is not yet in the catalog. so you have a spare CAT5 , 1 pair for talkback or intercom and power 3*1,5mm² in one cable.

    I also want to be able to do that – but I don’t think it can be done with current firmware – yet. See my old post about this and A&H’s reply here: http://srforums.prosoundweb.com/index.php/m/395413/22964/?srch=ilive#msg_395413.

    I’m hoping this will be a feature that is added as currently you can’t store just the mute states from the automation save options. In the scene save manager if you hit “edit” and and remove everything except “input channel mixer” (select it and update the scene) then when you next save that scene it will store mutes – but will also store all other input mix settings – fader levels, pan, gain, assignments, Aux sends etc. I consider this a major pain in the A!
    Come on A&H – give us some more options here! I would like to be able to store just mutes, or just fader settings, or just aux changes between scenes without a total input mixer recall. Other digital consoles can do this so come on iLive! Perhaps I have missed something and there is a way to do this? Anyone? At the moment I think we are limited to the 16 DCA groups which can be used as mute groups.

    Toby – I also wanted to find out about the ability to save only certain console settings to a scene. At this stage some things can’t be saved individually. See my post and A&H’s responce here: http://srforums.prosoundweb.com/index.php/m/395413/22964/?srch=ilive#msg_395413

    If you save the input channel settings it saves channel levels, Aux levels, mutes etc and you can’t save these things independantly of each other. Would be good to see more save options added – even a save library for preferred save states?
    And scene fade times would be good – think this is already on the suggestion list.
