    +1 :: the engineers in the room will properly say “but what does it meter” and I will say “I don’t know… ask Yamaha and Midas what they meter.”

    It would be so helpful visually for the workflow, especially with volunteers on our DLive many weeks.

    We’re right there with you on the group routing. It’s amazing how quick you eat up inputs when you do kicks, snares, toms, OHs, etc. to a DRUMS group, then the same with instruments. I do wish we could have more than 64 busses as well, but I assume that’s a pipe dream. When you mix IEMs and mix with groups, they go quickly.

    Have you tried using a DYN8 on insert A? It might work well for you in this application. We do this some when we don’t route a channel also through Waves Super Rack.

    Yep… make that Waves integration NICE.

    +1 again.

    Beginning to wonder if they just don’t want this feature, like Macros. It’s a years old, repetitive request. You can spill DCAs but you can’t process on them, it would make set up and fader use far cleaner and simpler if a group could also spill.

    @nicola is there any official thought on this feature?

    Macros would be amazing. Right now you have to use recall filters and then put those scenes on a soft key. It works, but seems like the long route.

    We currently do this with our Waves processing inserts just in case the server crashes; I have SK that unpatches vox, one for all inputs, and one that puts waves back in… although a normal scene recall would take care of that anyway.

    There is a library, you can create your own there.

    Think it is a glitch. It is not something that we’ve found a way to change option wise.

    However, a quick(er) fix is to patch the same two inputs to two mono channels somewhere else on the surface and correct the gain differences there, then unpatch.

    Great feature request. We have a FOH/MONITOR setup with multiple cards in use over 2 consoles and 2 mixracks. This would make things far simpler in the IO tabs for sure.

    Welcome to the DLive family!

    There are some great ideas in here. A lot of them are already suggested in the forums so it would be worth your time to search some of them out and add a comment/like to those posts so that the A&H teams see individual requests getting publicity rather than a long list.

    I am all about the MIDI functions getting added in and the RTA on PEQ is something that a lot of us have asked for, for instance.

    I agree here. It would be nice to reorder the PEQ, COMP, and INSA/B tabs. Individually would be great, but at least at an inputs & buss level.

    @summit

    This could be solved via a few options:
    1. A spill toggle like there is for DCAs
    2. Assign through the routing screen (already can)
    3. Global Option to turn group spills on/off

    This would certainly streamline my mixing. I use DCAs for mixing with quick access to spilled inputs and GROUPS for processing and sub mixing to a couple matrices.

    I agree this would be a nice add. We’re dealing with some of the same stuff and one of the only thing that kind of broke when we added a second console (and mix rack) for monitors was talkback from FOH to stage and backstage. We’ve done it with two mono busses but it’d be nice even if for just talkback groups to be able to pass down a tie line.

    What is your signal path?

    We’ve been using a Waves3 card and Tracks Live for Virtual Soundcheck for over 2 years now. It has been solid and very consistent with returning what we feel like we put into it.

    I’m not positive that direct outputs factor into this but I would definitely check that and see where the direct out insert point is in your path. It’s on the ROUTING screen.

    We work in this setup all the time too. The signal that hits the compressor is impacted by the fader position on that too. You may need to look at overall gain structure/signal path. Try turning the inputs down a bit and the group fader up. This may not be ideal for live use but at least try it to see if at a higher level the meters and compressor kick in.
