User Options

These settings relate to user-specific options such as Solo modes.

User Options are found in MENU > Setup > Options > USER tab.


Solo Setup

Solo In Place

Solo In Place (or SIP) mode can be used to listen to channels 'in place' of the main mix, by muting all other channels from the Master mix outputs. Certain channels can be excluded from this (e.g. effects channels) by using the SIP Isolate button found in each channel's Fader section.
Turn SIP mode on and off using the Solo In Place button in the Solo Setup section. This will also add a flashing yellow 'S' icon to the status bar at the top of the Main screen when SIP mode is active.

Additive Solo Mode

By default, Solo buttons are inter-cancelling (also known as auto-cancelling or single solo mode) - pressing one will cancel all other Solo buttons. This can be turned on and off using the Additive Solo Mode buttons for Solo Bus A and Solo Bus B independently. When switched on, the Solo buttons will then become additive (when you press a second one, the first one stays active, and so on).

Notes:
It is possible to Solo two or more channels even in inter-cancelling solo mode; simply press their Solo buttons simultaneously.

Single solo mode will override Additive solo mode, so if channels are set to go to both Solo buses but only one Solo bus is set to Additive Solo mode, the solo operation will remain inter-cancelling.

Input Solo Priority

Input Solo Priority allows Channel Solos to temporarily override Stem and Aux solos.

When the user solos a Stem or Aux, followed by one or more channels, the bus Solo is temporarily overridden. When the channel Solos are cleared, the bus will be soloed again.

To turn on Input Solo Priority go to MENU > Setup > Options > USER tab. In the SOLO SETUP section to the left, tap Input Solo Priority to engage it.

Now press the SOLO button on a Stem or an Aux. The Stem/Aux's signal will be sent to the solo buses. The bus' SOLO button will turn yellow to indicate this.

Now press SOLO on a Channel. Only the Channel's signal will be sent to the solo buses. The Channel's SOLO button will turn yellow to indicate this. The Stem/Aux's SOLO button will turn orange to indicate that it was the most recently soloed bus.

Press the Channel's SOLO button again to un-solo it, and the Stem/Aux will be soloed again. The Stem/Aux's signal will go to the SOLO buses again and the Stem/Aux's SOLO button has turned yellow to indicate this.

Press the Stem Aux's SOLO button again to clear the Solo.

The Solo CLEAR button on the Master Tile can be used to clear solos in Input Solo Priority. When Input Solo Priority is engaged the CLEAR button will clear the most recent solo. So if a bus is soloed, then a Channel is soloed, the CLEAR button will need to be pressed twice to clear both solos.

Notes:
To use Input Solo Priority with Solo in Place , first solo the bus using the SOLO button on the Fader Tile. Now solo the channel using the SOLO buttons on the Main Screen in the Fader section of the Channel View or Detail View.

To turn off Input Solo Priority return to MENU > Setup > Options > USER tab and tap Input Solo Priority again to disengage it.

Follow Pan Options for Solo Sends

The Follow Pan Solo option controls whether signal that feeds the Solo Buses follows the pan of the path.

Notes:
Panning from SSL Live console paths can be configured for each send individually. For this reason, the panner is not part of the fader in the signal chain, and therefore sending to a Bus Post Fader does not also mean Post Pan.

To adjust the Follow Pan settings go to MENU > Setup > Options > USER tab.

In the SOLO SETUP section to the left are two buttons: Follow Pan: Pre Fader Sends and Follow Pan: Post Fader Sends.

Follow Pan: Pre Fader Sends affects all Pre Fader sends to the Solo Buses. Engaging Follow Pan: Pre Fader Sends means for Pre Fader sends to the Solo Buses, the path's main Pan will be followed. Disengaging Follow Pan: Pre Fader Sends means for Pre Fader sends to the Solo Buses, the path's main Pan will be ignored. The signal will be sent to the Solo Bus using the default Folddown settings. These are adjustable in MENU > Setup > Options > SYSTEM tab.

For example, Channel 1 is mono, and is feeding to Solo Bus A Pre Fader. Solo Bus A is sending to Solo Channel 1, which is stereo. Channel 1 is panned hard left. Engaging Follow Pan: Pre Fader Sends will mean the signal is sent to Solo Channel 1 hard left. Disengaging Follow Pan: Pre Fader Sends will mean the signal is sent to Solo Channel 1 centre.

Follow Pan: Post Fader Sends works in the same way as its Pre Fader equivalent. Engaging Follow Pan: Post Fader Sends means for Post Fader sends to the Solo Buses, the path's main Pan will be followed. Disengaging Follow Pan: Post Fader Sends means for Post Fader sends to the Solo Buses, the path's main Pan will be ignored. The signal will be sent to the Solo Bus using the default Folddown settings.

Broadcast Solo Mode

When active, the functions of the Solo channels are reconfigured so that the outputs can be used as traditional monitor outputs feeding a mono, stereo, or 5.1 speaker setup according to the Solo Channel format.

The Solo Channel output level is controlled directly from the Solo Channel Fader, which becomes the main Monitor level control. The Solo A and Solo B controls on the Master Tile continue to trim the level of their respective Solo Buses when routed to a Solo Channel and a path Solo is active. However, the Solo A and B controls no longer affect the level of the default monitor source assigned to a Solo Channel and there is no requirement to route a Solo Bus to a Solo Channel in order to hear the default or external inputs.

A Solo Channel DIM function has been added, controlled by the Solo Channel Solo button. Dim level can be set from 0 to -40dB, from the Solo Channel Fader section, either from the touch screen or the Channel Control Tile via the Fader TB button.

If a separate solo speaker is in use, the main monitor feed can be dimmed when a path Solo is active using the Auto Dim function. This is also enabled from the Solo Channel Fader section.

Default Feed Point

Solo Buses A and B default feed points can be customised here.

The options are Pre Fader, Post All, or None.

New paths will be created with both Solo Bus feed points set to the Bus Default.

Notes:
None does not turn the Solo Bus off. Paths can still be sent to the Solo Bus individually from the path's Fader section of the Detail View.

Rehearse Mode (consoles only)

Setting up the Live Recorder and Rehearse Mode is described in detail in the Setup: I/O Configuration section.
Rehearse Mode can be switched on and off globally (press & hold the Global Rehearse Mode button) or for each individual Live Recorder module from the Rehearse Mode section of the User Options page.
Each individual Live Recorder button lists the I/O port it is connected to.

Keypad and Mute/User Buttons

The ten numeric keypad buttons and the ten Mute/User buttons on the Master Tile can be assigned to user-defined functions for quick access. Use the button to the right of each user key field to select a function from the the list available (listed below).
