Automation Filters

Functions can be excluded when scenes are stored and/or recalled. These function filters can be different for store vs. recall - if you want to store a setting but not recall it for now, you can filter it out in the Recall page, but leave it 'unfiltered' in the Store page. filters can be programmed on a global basis, or scene by scene.

Important Note: If the same stagebox/local analogue input is routed into multiple Input Channels and/or Talkback Channels, then each of those channels may have control of the same set of parameters associated with that analogue input (gain, pad etc.) and will therefore remain synchronised with one another. Control of those parameters may be automated per-channel under the 'Input' column, but differences in the automated states of those shared analogue input parameters may inadvertently be introduced if the channels are not dropped in or out of Store and Recall scope together. Firing a scene with such differences in it may result in undesired behaviour of the analogue input's parameters.

Data generated during the initialisation of routing analogue inputs to channels is specific to each channel, not per analogue input. Care must therefore be taken to ensure this data is explicitly stored for each channel.

To access the filters for a particular scene, touch the scene in the scene list and touch the Store Filter or Recall Filter button at the top of the Automation screen and select Scene Mode to the right of the Filter buttons.

To access the global filters, touch the Global button in the relevant filters page.

A filter grid will appear:

Note: The colour of the screen's indicators are purple for Recall filters (as above) and blue for Store filters.

Elements must be set to store or recall in both the global and per-scene filter pages for that parameter to be stored/recalled. Edit mode must first be enabled to make any changes to the filters (see below).

Path types (Channels, Auxes, Masters etc.) are listed as rows in the grid, while individual elements (EQ, Fader, Mute etc.) are listed as columns.

Each path type row can be expanded to display each individual path of that type, by selecting the required row and touching the Show Details button at the top of the screen.

Each coloured indicator represents a specific element in a specific path or path type. Grid cells that are grey indicate that a particular element doesn't exist or is disabled.

The indicators appear 'lit' when they are included in that store or recall function, and appear 'unlit' if they are filtered out (excluded from store or recall).

Store Filters

Global filter: global store enabled*. Scene filter: store enabled in both global and scene filters
Store disabled
Scene filter only. Store enabled in scene but not in global
Store enabled for some items (use the Show Details button to expand selected row)
Scene filter only. Store enabled for some items in both global and scene filters

Recall Filters

Global filter: global recall enabled*. Scene filter: recall enabled in both global and scene filters
Recall disabled
Scene filter only. Recall enabled in scene but not in global
Recall enabled for some items (use the Show Details button to expand selected row)
Scene filter only. Recall enabled for some items in both global and scene filters

*Data must be set to store/recall in both Global and per-scene filter pages, so this state does not necessarily mean the data will be stored/recall; the per-scene filter must also be enabled.

Important Note: Adjusting filters can result in loss of data so great care should be taken when using them.
If a parameter does not have a stored value (i.e. if it has been filtered out in the Store filters page), but it has been set to recall in the Recall filters page, then the default setting for that parameter will be recalled.
Tip: Keep the global filters all enabled for use later as Store and Recall 'Safes'. For example, to completely isolate a channel from recall during a show, simply turn off its global filter settings.
Any new scenes will be created using the filter settings of the current scene.
Use the per-scene filters and the All Scenes edit button (described below) to easily propagate filter settings to all scenes (some of which may then be individually modified as needed).

You can change the filter settings by first enabling edit mode; Touch the Edit button (near the top right corner of the screen) to enable.

Per-scene filter changes can be made to just the selected scene, all scenes within the same Group (see Scene Groups) or all scenes by changing the edit range mode; Press & hold the button located just above the Edit button and choose Edit Single (default), Edit Group or Edit All. Subsequent filter changes will now be applied to the defined range of scenes.

Touch an individual indicator in the grid to toggle its state.

It is also possible to change entire rows and columns using the round Edit indicators at the end of each row and column:

Touch any round Edit indicator to select it. It will go red to indicate that its row or column is being edited.

Multiple rows and columns can be selected. You can also select the complete set of rows and columns by touching the Edit label itself.

The three edit functions listed below the Edit button will now be available:

Touch the Set All to include all selected indicators in the store or recall.

Touch Toggle to invert the states of all selected indicators.

Touch Reset All to exclude all selected indicators from the store or recall.

Touch Edit again to disable edit mode, and touch the Scene View button at the top of the screen to return to the scene list.

Tip: The edit functions above will be applied to all rows with their red Edit indicator set, even ones above or below the currently visible set of path types.

Automation Recall Protect

Automation Recall Protect is used to completely exclude any path from automation recall (also called Recall Safe).

With the Detail View open, open the config section by tapping on the path's Eyeconix image in the top left of the window. Press and hold Automation Recall Protect to engage.

The path ID at the top of the Channel View is highlighted purple to indicate paths with Automation Recall Protect engaged. The path will also be highlighted purple in the Overview page.

Automation Recall Protect is also available as a hardware button on the quick controls. Using the Quick Control scroll buttons, scroll to the bottom of the options or open the Detail View to the config section with Follow Detail off. Automation Recall Protect is presented on the uppermost button and is a press and hold function.

Automation Recall Protect operates above the Global Recall Filter. This means all Recall scope parameter settings are saved for when Automation Recall Protect is disengaged.
Engaging Automation Recall Protect only removes that path from the Recall Filter. Changes made to this path will still be stored if parameters are on in the Store Filter.
Automation Recall Protect is not stored in showfiles.
