Delay Quick Controls
The signal on each Full Processing channel in Live can be delayed by up to 2 seconds, with basic delay control available in each channel strip. Double-tapping in the Delay Quick Display opens the Detail dialogue for advanced configuration.
To access the basic in-channel Delay controls:
The channel Quick Controls cycle between Delay and All Pass filter controls – press the Fader Tile Encoder (or double-tap the on-screen Encoder) to switch to the correct display.
In the Delay display, switch the delay into circuit by pressing the In button.
Turn (drag) the Encoder to adjust the delay.
The delay amount is shown above the Quick Key display. The lower Quick Keys switch between Time and Distance measurements, with each button cycling through relevant units (samples/milliseconds/seconds, and centimetres/metres).
Delay Detail Display
Double-tap in the channel Context display to open the Delay All Pass Detail dialogue, where you can edit delay parameters with a more detailed display.Notes:
The buttons down the left of the dialogue define which Detail page is displayed. Touch Delay All Pass if it isn't already selected.
The Channel Scroller (near the top left corner) can be used to scroll the dialogue to a different channel.
To switch the Delay in or out, touch the Delay IN button (in the top-right of the dialogue) – the button goes blue when it is switched in.
You can drag the Del node within the graph using a finger.
There is a scrollbar below the graph. The display will scroll if you attempt to drag the node beyond the left or right border.
You can also change the delay by dragging the scroller. This will leave the node in its position in the display and scroll the graph behind it.
To zoom in and out, use two fingers and draw them together or apart.
The delay amount is shown in the top left of the graph. The Time and Distance buttons to the right of the graph define the units, with each button cycling through relevant units (samples/milliseconds/seconds, and centimetres/metres).
To set a precise delay amounts you can use the Delay Time – and + buttons below the unit buttons to increment the delay by a sample at a time. Alternatively, select the Del node, double-tap the value box in the bottom right corner and use the keyboard which appears.Tip: You may find the following to be the most efficient way to operate the graph:
- Zoom in quite close on the graph and leave the Del node in the centre;
- Use the Scroller to set the rough delay value;
- Now move the Del node to perform fine adjustments to the value.
Hardware Button Assignments
The Quick Controls beneath the screen can also be assigned to the Detail dialogue parameters. This requires the Follow Detail button (bottom right corner of the Main Screen) to be activated. 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); the Quick Controls below the screen are assigned to different functions for the selected channel. Only applicable when the Detail page is open. The Quick Controls on other Fader Tiles are unaffected.
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 Encoder.
To reset the delay unit to 0, press & hold the Delay IN button (in the Detail dialogue) and select the Reset option from the drop-down list that appears.
To close the Detail dialogue, touch the Close button in the top right-hand corner.Note: The in-channel delay function is used for delaying the entire channel signal, not for creating delay effects. Delay effects can be routed to the channel inserts from the console's effects racks. See for more details.
