System Settings

Press & hold System in the Setup menu to access these system functions. These are not saved in the user showfile:

Operating Level

Double-tap the value to alter the analogue line operating level between +12 to +24 dBu. +24 dBu is the default setting.

Sample Rate

The system can operate at 96 kHz (recommended) or 48 kHz sample rates. Press & hold the relevant button to change the sample rate of the console.

Important Note: Changing the sample rate of the console will cause changes to the I/O configuration and any existing routing may therefore be lost. The sample rate should therefore be set before configuring other elements of the console.

Each stagebox must be configured to run at the same sample rate as the console. Please refer to the Setup: Clocking section for further information.

The console MUST be power cycled following a change in Sample Rate.

Console Name

The Console Name can be edited here. This is the name referenced when connecting to the console from a remote surface (SOLSA, TaCo or another console in remote mode).

The Control ID (visible in MENU > Setup > Options > NETWORK tab) is used to determine the name of the consle when owning Net I/O device parameters. But the Control ID is also taken from the Console Name.

Double tap on the name field to edit the console name, then press and hold Apply.

Please Note:
Changing the console name will cause the console to power off and all Ownership of Net I/O device parameters will be lost. This means any previously owned inputs (or other settings) will need to be manually re-owned before control will be re-established. For instructions on owning inputs and stagebox settings please see Controlling Net I/O Stageboxes and Ownership.

Fader Calibration

If the fader position falls out of alignment from the values displayed, holding Calibrate Faders in Surface will recalibrate the faders. Audio will continue to pass but faders will be disconnected from audio control during this process.

System Logs

Should you encounter a technical problem, SSL may request the console log files for analysis. If logs are requested, insert a USB drive (formatted at FAT32 or NTFS) into the console and press the Data Backup button to save the log files and backup showfile to a timestamped folder under a 'SSL\Live\DataBackup' subfolder on the USB drive.

Note: We strongly recommend you do not operate the rest of the buttons in the System page without specific instructions from SSL.
