In this video you will learn how to personalize meter display and channel selection, and how to create shortcut keys in the eMotion LV1 live mixing console.
The User Interface Settings page is where you can set meter display behavior, channel selection, and to create personalized shortcut keys, determining how the LV1 will behave during a session or performance.
Meter preferences are divided into several sections:
The Mixer Window section is used to set whether the channel strip meters are displaying channel input or output.
Usually, you’ll want to select a channel when you touch its fader.
When Channel Select Follow Fader is selected, that’s exactly what happens.
When Channel Select Follow Fader is not checked, touching and moving a fader will not select its channel. This lets you adjust the fader of a channel in the Mixer window, while adjusting the parameters of another channel in the Channel window. Or, move a fader of a channel that’s not selected.
To select the channel, touch anywhere around the fader, or at the top of the channel strip. Or, use the channel navigation menu on the top bar.
Use the Delay Units section to choose the way that delay values are entered and displayed.
You can choose either milliseconds, feet, meters or samples. This choice is provided for convenience only and does not affect delay processing. Use the speed of sound value box to enter a measured or calculated current speed of sound. This affects the relationship between distance measurements and time value.
Many mixer functions can be assigned to user-assignable keys. Assignments are made from the drop-down menu on the right side of the window. Choose one of the eight buttons and then select its assignment.
User-Assignable keys are triggered with the buttons on the left side of the Mixer window. An abbreviation of the of the assignment name appears on the button.
User Assignable Keys can also be assigned to dedicated buttons on external control surfaces.
For a complete list of actions that can be assigned to user-assignable keys, refer to the eMotion LV1 User Guide, or better yet, just open the menus and discover what’s there.
The mixer is now configured.
