So i’m working out a live set and having real trouble doing something that seems like it should be quite basic.
I have two tracks, and what i want to do is have 2 scenes setup so that in the first scene, Track 1 will fade out whilst Track 2 fades up as i move the crossfader to the right leaving Track 1 muted and Track 2 at full volume, then i switch to the second scene (crossfader still to the right) which has the same settings so Track 2 is still full volume and then when i move the crossfader back to the left, Track2 is still at full volume and Track1 fades back up.
Put simply i want to fade Track 1 out and Track 2 up together, and then fade Track 1 up . Shouldnt be too hard should it? But for some reason it is!
When i assign different values to Scenes A and B it seems to change the levels together?
If anyones got any ideas would be really appreciated,
I should elaborate a bit on the Scenes A and B configuration.
When i change the XVOL level between scene a and b it seems to change them both, so i cant get a transition…
Without getting too tech let me illustrate hiw it seems like it should be setup:
TRACK 1 | Scene A - XVOL MAX | Scene B - XVOL MIN
TRACK 2 | Scene A - XVOL MIN | Scene B - XVOL MAX
TRACK 1 | Scene A - XVOL MIN | Scene B - XVOL MAX
TRACK 2 | Scene A - XVOL MAX | Scene B - XVOL MAX
Except that it wont let me do this. When i change either scene A or B xvol parameter it changes both of them…
It sounds like you might be under the impression that each of the 16 scenes store values for both the A and B side of the crossfader… They do not.
One of the 16 scenes gets assigned to the A OR B button (though you can assign the same scene to both A and B…nothing will change when you move the crossfader because both sides are the same scene).
To do what you want is super easy, you just need 3 scenes…
Scene 1 - Track 1 Volume UP, Track 2 Volume Down
Scene 2 - Track 1 Volume Down, Track 2 Volume Up
Scene 3 - Both Volumes up.
It’s also worth noting that if you assign a blank scene there will be no XVOL settings and so all tracks will be at full volume.
Assign scene 1 to A and scene 2 to B
Now when you move the crossfader to the right track 1 goes down, 2 goes up
Then, assign scene 3 to A… now when you move the crossfader back to the left, track 1 fades back in and you can still hear track 2.
I don’t want to sound like a dick, but I hope you plan on reading that manual a bit more before your first gig, and maybe checking out some youtube videos.
