Surface Options

These settings relate to control surface-specific options such as Query configuration and Follow Modes.

Surface Options are found in MENU > Setup > Options > SURFACE tab.

Tile Setup

Fader Tiles

Enabling Screen Follow Select causes the Fader Tile on which the last Select button was pressed to be automatically called to the main screen.

Focus Fader Lock

The Focus Fader in the Master Tile may be locked to a specific channel path, as described in the Channel Control Tile Tutorial section. The Channel Control Tile may also be locked to that channel if the Link Channel Control Tile button is enabled in the Focus Fader Lock section of the User Options page.


The Lock To User Keys button prevents the keypad on the Master Tile from becoming a numeric keypad when the on-screen keyboard is enabled. This allows any user-defined functions assigned to the keypad to be available at all times.

Path Label LCD

The bottom line of text on the path label LCD can display either information about the path assigned to that channel strip (path type, number and format) or solo bus routing information. Use the Show Info and Show Solo buttons to toggle between the two displays.

Query Setup

Query Mode options determine whether the result of the Query is Compressed to show only the paths turned on to/from the Queried path on the other Fader Tiles, or Expanded to keep the user-defined layers and banks on the Fader Tiles. In Expanded mode, the Q button of any contributing path is lit green if it's an input to the Queried path or red if it's an output from the Queried path.

The Q button of the Queried path flashes green if in Compressed mode or purple if in Expanded mode.

The Control Mode determines how the result of the Query is displayed on the Fader Tiles. Showing the Query in Routes mode displays the channel strips of the paths in the Query, with the faders remaining as the main fader for each of the paths and the Quick Controls assigned to the last selected path processing parameter.

Showing the Query on Quick Controls provides access to the contributing level of the Queried path to/from the other paths on the Quick Control encoders. Querying an Aux will assign the send levels from each channel to that Aux onto the Quick Control encoders. Querying an Input Channel will assign the send levels from that channel to any Stems or Auxes it is assigned to.

Showing the Query on Faders is similar to the Quick Controls mode, but instead provides access to the send levels to/from the Queried path on the faders of each source/destination. In this mode the Quick Control encoders default to the Pan control for each send (if applicable).

The Query to Focus Fader option temporarily replaces the path on the Focus Fader with the Queried path. This means all of the console's Fader Tiles can be used to display the Queried path's contributions.

The concept of Query is explained in further detail in the Channel Query section.

Select/Solo/Query Follow Options

The Follow Setup section allows linking, or Following, of various button combinations on the Fader Tiles. This allows, for example, paths to be Soloed automatically whenever their Select button is pressed (or vice versa).

To configure Follow modes, first enable the Edit button.

Three rows correspond to the hardware Select, Solo and Q (Query) buttons on the Fader Tiles. The columns refer to which button should follow, on press of the hardware button. Columns are arranged by path type (Channels, Stems, Auxes etc.), allowing different Follow modes for different path types.

Enable the buttons in the grid corresponding to which function (column) you would like to follow on press of a hardware button (row). For example, to enable Solo Follow Select for Auxes, locate the Solo column in the Aux / *Aux section and press the button in the intersection between that column and the Select row.

Use the buttons in the Edit row and column of the grid to select entire rows and columns, then use the Set All, Clear All or Toggle buttons to alter the state of the selection.
