Channel inputs, inserts, and outputs are set using routing dialogues. These are opened by touching the Route Input A, Route Input B and Route Output buttons in the Input/Routing detail dialogue, and the Route Send and Route Return buttons in the Insert detail dialogue. A similar display is also used for routing Matrix inputs and outputs and the external side chain dynamics.
Sends are assigned by touching the appropriate Stem, Aux, or Master assign button, followed by the appropriate selector button to assign the send to the Quick Controls, as described in the .
The Route Input A and Route Input B buttons allow you to route main (A) and alt (B) inputs to the channel.
Outputs can be routed to any number of destinations and are post all processing (including fader).
For example, to select a source for a channel's main input (Input A), touch Route Input A in the input/routing detail dialogue :
The routing dialogue will appear:
Touching a group in the left column will open the contents in the next column, and again for the third and fourth columns if necessary.
Swipe to scroll the column list if necessary.
For stagebox or generic MADI connections, the physical device will appear in the first column, its I/O types in the second column, then the individual I/O in the next column.
The console internal I/O is available by touching the console group (listed as LIVE and ID number), then by selecting the source type and source number. If selecting channel or bus signals, you can then select the possible source points from the channel.
Press Make to complete the route.
Note: If routing multichannel inputs or outputs (Stereo, LCR etc.), press & hold the Make button and press Make All to make all 'legs' of the path to consecutive physical connectors where possible. XY Routing (explained below) can also be used to route to consecutive connections.
Alternatively select the channel strip on the Main screen and press the Spill button on the right hand side to route each leg in turn.
The colours of the routing boxes indicate the following:
|Green: Device or device element which is active (detected and locked) and contains routes to/from this channel;|
|Cyan: Device or device sub-category which is active and available for routing but is not a routable element;|
|Blue: Device element that can be routed, is active and available for routing to/from this channel;|
|Grey: Device or device element is inactive (not detected or not locked) and does not contain routes to/from this channel.|
|Brown: Device or device element is active but is already in use and is therefore unavailable to be routed.|
|Yellow: Device or device element is inactive and already in use. Audio will not be present on this device.|
|Red: Device or device element is inactive and contains routes to/from this channel. Audio will not be present on this device.|
There are three levels of 'unmaking' routes:
For Route In:
- Clear List unmakes all routes from the selected device element/physical connector (as shown in the scrollable current routes display to the left of the Clear List button), including existing routes to other channels;
- Unmake unmakes only the selected channel's input route from the device element that is highlighted (selected). Other channels routed to the same source are unaffected;
- Clear All unmakes all of the channel's input routes, even if they are not currently selected. This includes all components of a stereo/LCR channel but not the channel's other (A or B) input.
For Route Out:
- Clear List unmakes all routes to the selected device element/physical connector;
- Unmake unmakes the channel's output route from the device element that is highlighted;
- Clear All unmakes all of the channel's output routes, even if not currently selected. This includes all components of a stereo/LCR channel.
To close the display, select another detail page, deselect Route or touch the Close button.
Note: The Close button above the routing columns closes the routing but leaves the detail dialogue open. Touching Close above the route button will close the whole detail dialogue.
