Thread: "HOW" are you using Assignable controls during a service?

  1. #1

    "HOW" are you using Assignable controls during a service?

    Hi,

    We are about to purchase our X32 for church and I was wondering how you are all using the assignable control section, if at all.

    I would guess at the least turn efx on/off for speaking between songs.

    Any other ideas?

    Hi Pete,

    Glad to hear you are in the process of getting the X32 for your church. We got ours in December and are very happy with it. My wife and I visited your lovely city last May, touring the downtown on a segway and visiting the famous Columbus Zoo, then off to the Amish area for a few days.

    The only thing I use the assignable buttons for is check the L/R (FOH) EQ on FX slot 5. The reason for this is that there is a known bug in XControl (and still in X32-Edit) in that once in awhile the EQ will be reset to flat. Hopefully they will fix this bug soon. The other thing I have is to goto the Routing Home page in order to switch the Aux In 1-4 between Aux 1-4 and Card 1-4. Oh and one other thing I changed. I change the 3rd and 4th button on set A to something other than Fx Time and Speed. The blinking light drove me nuts.

    Pete,

    Glad we got to cross paths at GearFest. It was great to talk with you. Just wanted to let you guys know about two of the new webinars that are happening this month. One is on implementing the ProZone units (X32, S16, P16) units into your House of Worship and how they all go together, and the other one is setting up MixBusses, Mute Groups, DCAs, Subgroups and all of that good stuff on the X32. Here is the link to get to the page to sign up for them if you are interested.

    Also, How did you like GearFest?

    Hi Evan,

    Your webinars look very interesting. Unfortunately, it is during my workday. So I may be able to listen in, depending on the interruptions. Hopefully you will be posting them here shortly after the events.

    We haven't made full use of the assignable controls yet, but we've setup Set A to be effects with the following assignments:
    dail: MixBus Levels (allows us to dail up and down the overall effects sends for that bus)
    button 1: time (if applicable, lets us easly tap the tempo for a given song, to make the hits in delays to line up nicely)

    I'd love to hear how other people are using them as well.

    Hi Pete, I use the "User Assignable" section of the X32 every service for both eFx and scenes. On bank "A", I use the rotary control for eFx 1~4 "Level" control so I can have instant hands on control of the eFx level depending on the type/speed/style/instrument/voice of the song. Button 1~4 I have assigned to eFx 1~4 mutes for quick on/off. Buttons 5~8 I have assigned scenes 1~4 for easy access since I primarily use only 3 scenes each service. Our order of service changes from service to service and I don't always have time to set the scene bank in order of how the service is ordered. I have bank "B" rotary controls set to efx 1~4 size or modulation. Buttons 1~4 are set to eFx 1~4 tap delay. Buttons 5~8 are still set to scene 1~4. Bank "C", I have yet to use, however I still programmed them to eFx 1~4 pre-delay on the rotary control. I have scenes 1~8 on buttons 1~8. This works great for me. Recommend just playing around to see what configuration works best for you and the audio team. Hope this helps!!! J. Monroe

    This console is even cooler than I though.

    I expect that I'd use the encoders for various FX and dynamic parameters. Buttons to open racks, mute FX outs (to kill reverb tails), mute FX sends (to retain reverb tails).

    I use one layer of the assigns for controlling FX1-3. The second layer is for quick access to a few Aux inputs (PC/DVD/MP3). The fourth buttons on each layer are used as a quick mute control for the matrix feeding the foyer/nursery/CCTV and hearing assistance radios. It's the only button the ushers are allowed to touch. (Don't exactly want rehearsal on in the foyer, but we do want the service.)

    Those are pretty good ideas. I may just steal some of them. =)

    I use our X32 assignable controls to map the transport control of Logic, as well as starting/stopping the two track recording of the sermon, and quick FX section access. The best part of this for me is the ability to combine elements into one layer: all of the recording transport controls (both USB and Logic via XUSB) are in one layer.
