Path Name, Colour, and Eyeconix
Channel names, Eyeconix and colours all provide ways of distinguishing visually between individual channels, in addition to the channel number and type indication at the top of the on-screen channel strip.
Channel names are shown in the channel Label Screens above the Select buttons in the Fader Tile.
By default, channels are simply named according to their type and number.
Channel colours are shown in the Colour Bars above the channel Label Screens, as well as at the top and bottom of the on-screen channel in Channel View.
Channel Eyeconix are simply graphics displayed at the bottom of the on-screen channel in Channel View, symbolising the channel source.
These channel display elements can be configured in the Channel Detail dialogue, opened by double-tapping in the Eyeconix area at the base of the channel:
A dialogue similar to the below will appear:Note: The buttons down the left of the dialogue define which Detail page is displayed. If the Name, Eyeconix and Colour page isn't already selected, touch the channel Eyeconix area in the top left corner of the dialogue.
The Channel Scroller (near the top left corner) can be used to scroll the dialogue to a different channel. Note: Essential parameters in the page can be assigned to the Quick Controls beneath the screen. This requires the Follow Detail button (bottom right corner of the Main Screen) to be engaged. Touch the button to toggle between:
Follow Channel (button inactive): the Quick Controls below the screen follow the selected function, as per the Quick Controls on the other Fader Tiles.
Follow Detail (button active): When the detail dialogue is open the Quick Controls below the screen are assigned to different functions for the selected channel.
Changing the detail dialogue page when in Follow Detail mode will cause the Quick Controls beneath the screen to follow; the Quick Controls on the other Fader Tiles will remain unchanged.
The labels across the bottom of the Detail dialogue indicate the functions assigned to the Quick Controls directly beneath them. As a general rule only one function is assigned to each Channel's Quick Controls. Switch functions are assigned to the upper Quick Key (which will be lit if available) and continuous parameters are assigned to the Quick Encoder.
The Categories button in the right side of the dialogue allows you to filter the images and words shown according to subject – touch it and select a category from the list which appears.
The Preset button (bottom right corner) opens the Preset dialogue which can be used to load or save an entire channel strip of settings. This preset will include the following settings:
- Path Name
- Eyeconix Image
- Path Colour
- Fader level
- Filter settings
- EQ settings
- Compressor settings
- Gate settings
- All Pass Filter settings
Naming a Channel
By default, channels are named according to type (CH for input channel, AUX, STEM or MASTER) and number.
To rename the channel, double-tap the label area beneath the Channel Name title – a keyboard will appear; type the new name and touch OK (or touch the red X to close the keyboard and discard any changes).
The Next and Prev buttons on the keyboard popup (Tab and Shift+Tab respectively if using a USB keyboard) allow quick scrolling through contiguous channels without having to close and re-open the keyboard between each channel.
To reset the name back to the channel number and type, touch Reset (to the left of the Channel Name title);
To clear the label completely, touch Clear (to the right of the Channel Name title).
You can also quickly insert words from the list shown below the label area – simply touch a word to insert it at the end of the current label. The Categories button in the right side of the dialogue allows you to filter the words shown according to subject – touch it and select a category from the list which appears.
A list of images is shown in the centre of the Detail dialogue. Simply touch on the required image to select it – it will appear in the channel Eyeconix area.
To scroll the image display, touch the image area and swipe up or down.
The Categories button in the right side of the dialogue allows you to filter the images shown according to subject – touch it and select a category from the list which appears.
To clear the currently selected image and leave the channel Eyeconix area blank, touch the Clear button beside the Eyeconix title.
To select a different colour for the channel, touch on the required colour from the palette shown in the right of the Detail dialogue – the name area at the top and bottom of the on-screen channel will change to that colour, as will the colour bar above the channel's Label Screen.Note: The graphic across the top of this page of the Detail dialogue is used for altering the channel's processing order. See for more details.
