A2-2 Appendix 2 - SD7T Operation A2.1 Overview This Appendix should be read in conjunction with the standard SD7 User Manual and SD7 Appendix 1 (Mach 2 Operation) It contains details of additional features added to SD7T software versions.

A2.2 New General Features (Not SD7T Specific) A2.2.1 LCR Busses

When a channel is routed to the LCR Master, the centre component of the signal can be adjusted. This is the Blend control found on every input channel, and is a 2nd Function of the Pan Control.

The Blend control varies the amount of signal sent to the Centre leg of the LCR buss. When adjusted to LR (fully anti-clockwise), a centre panned signal only goes to the L & R components of the LCR buss. When adjusted to LCR (fully clockwise), a centre panned signal only goes to the C componentof the LCR buss. Adjustments between these two extremes varies the ratio of L/R and C levels.

A2.2.2 Global Set To Defaults

The Global Set to Defaults Panel allows global settings to be applied to the console.

Open the Global Set to Defaults Panel from the Files Menu. Select the Channel type from the list on the left side of the panel, and then select the operation to perform from the available functions.

An undo function is provided which undoes all changes since the panel was opened. Once the Global Default Panel is closed, changes cannot be undone.

A2-3Appendix 2 - SD7T Operation

A2.2.3 Security

Security modes are now implemented, with a choice of three modes of operation :

Setup : Users have full access to every function on the console.

Live : Access to elements of the console can be limited, and password protected.

Unattended : The console is locked, and cannot be operated.

User passwords can be defined for the Live and Unattended modes. To set a password, press the Set Password button. Enter the old password, then enter the new password twice.

By default, the passwords are blank.

If you should forget your password, call your Distributor to obtain a reset password. Entering the master override password will delete all of the user-set passwords, allowing new passwords to be set.

To modify restrictions in Live mode, press the Set Live Restrictions button in the Security Panel. A range of options are provided, and the channel list can be expanded with a scope per controller, per channel.

A Tick indicates access allowed. A Cross indicates the item will be locked when the console is place in Live mode.

In the above example, we can see that the Live mode scope restricts access to all the Input devices, The Matrix output Channels, changing the session structure, the audio I/O devices, the Audio Sync settings, and stops the user Quitting to Windows.

A2.2.4 Additional MIDI Functionality

MIDI Devices panel PC Column : Sets range of MIDI Program Change messages. A value of 1 sends PC messages in the range 1 – 128. A value of 0 sends PC messages in the range 0 – 127.

chng Column : If a Y is entered into this column, Program Change messages will only be transmitted if the value to be sent is different to the last value sent on that MIDI channel. Leaving the chng column blank will ensure that PC messages are always sent for that channel, regardless of the last transmitted value.

Clear PC : Under normal circumstances, Program Change Messages are only transmitted when a value changes. By pressing the Clear PC button, it ensures that all Program Change messages will be sent on the firing of the next cue, even if the value has not changed from the firing of the previous cue.

MIDI Program Panel : Now includes a Ripple Down Function.

When entering PC messages with the Ripple Down Function enabled, the same PC message is written to the subsequent Cues, until a change of state (a different PC message) is reached.

A2-5 Appendix 2 - SD7T Operation Cue Control By MIDI The fring of Cues can be controlled from incoming MIDI messages and the console can send the same controller messages when a cue is fired.

The range of messages available are MIDI Channel 16 - Controllers 16 to 19 with data values 0 to 127.

NOTE: Controller 19 Values 126 and 127 are reserved for Fire Previous and Fire Next functions.

By default the messages associated with each Cue will count from Controller 16 - Value 0 upwards through the Cue List but these messages can be edited at any time.

Pressing the MIDI Control button at the bottom of the Cue List panel will open the Cue Control by MIDI panel where these messages can be viewed on a list and changed as required.

To change a message, press the Change button and select any available controller value from the drop down list.

Buttons at the bottom of this panel activate the sending and/or receiving of these messages.

A2.3 Features Specific to SD7T (With special thanks to Andrew Bruce of Autograph UK for his invaluable contibution to the design and explanation of these features) A2.3.1 Auto Update Explained

The Auto Update System (Previously referred to as Live Update in D5T Software) allows users to apply changes to a setting on a channel in more that one cue at a time. There are conditions and rules to this automatic update, which will be explained later. Auto Update is switched on & off using the Auto Update button in the Cues Panel, or in the snapshot control section on the Upper Master Worksurface (to the right of the Master Screen) On a basic level, as an example, with Auto Update ON, making a change to the EQ on Channel 1 in a Cue will update the same EQ in all the Cues in the show that have a matching EQ.

This automatic update rule works along side the Aliases system (see separate explanation of Aliases). So if a channel uses more than one alias, then changes to a module (EQ for example) will only be updated to cues that have a matching alias.

Since it may not suit to ripple certain classes of controls to all cues in this way, there is provision for an opt-out. For instance :

- Channel Delay may want to be restricted only to the Cue in which it’s changed in order to track actors around a stage cue-by-cue.

- A channel’s routing may change cue-by-cue between a number of different groups.

- A channel’s soft Mute state would almost certainly never want to ripple to all cues.

The Auto Update across cues is also affected by the Auto Update Exclusions, found in the Theatre Options Tab. If a module is set as an exclusion to Auto Update, then changes to the excluded module will only occur in the single cue being modified. By default, Mutes are excluded from Auto Update.

It is also possible to protect controllers and channels from being Auto Updated. The Cues / Scope / Group & Auto Update Scope allows the protection of controller types on an individual channel basis. Items marked with a red cross in this scope panel will not be updated by the auto update system.

A2.3.2 Options - Additional Theatre Tab

Option/All Function. Switch between Channel Gangs and Cue Auto Update Channel Gangs : Standard SD7 Live style function, where the Option/All function is used to perform operations on Entire Banks of controllers, or to defeat Ganging to make relative adjustments between ganged channels.

Cue Auto-Update : No longer performs Gang functions (as above) but inverts the Auto-Update function. (see separate explanation of Theatre Mode Auto-Update) Excluded Controls Scope :Selection of controller types that will be excluded from the Auto Update function. Note that the use of the Option-All button on an excluded control will write to all cues, as opposed to the current cue (as the Option/All control inverts the AutoUpdate rule) Fader Off LCD Colour : Choose the colour of channel LCD Buttons when a channel is off (Fader down or channel is muted). If None is selected, the LCD button colour will remain the same, regardless of the channel being open or closed.

Display Cues Overview : Option to have a duplicate Cues list displayed on the Overview Screen

A2-7Appendix 2 - SD7T Operation

A2.3.3 Channel Sets

Located in the master screen Layout menu A set is a group of channels. 32 Sets are available, and each set can contain any combination of Input channels, and an input channel can be a member of any number of sets.

Sets are used as a tool in the assigning of members to Control Groups, allowing the quick selection of pre-defined groups (or sets) of input channels.

To assign channels to a set - touch the set name to highlight it and then, from the list, touch the names of the channels that you want to include in the sets.

Channels can belong to as many sets as you wish and sets can be updated if roles change.

NOTE: If a Set has already been used to assign a group of channels, changing the membership will not retrospectively change any assignments that have already been made – they need to be deleted and reassigned in order to reflect the revised membership.

The Name and colour of each set can be edited - press the edit names & colours button and then select the name or colour to be edited.

A2.3.4 Control Group Cues

Located in the master screen Layout menu, this is a panel for assigning members to Control Groups for each Cue in the session.

Central to the programming of a Theatre show is the ability to control the membership of Control Groups throughout the Cue List. The Control Group Cues panel allows easy assignment of members to the Control Groups The Panel shows a list of Cues down the left column, then a grid of Control Groups, with their membership. The Scope column can contain either a tick or a cross. A tick indicates that any changes in CG membership will be recalled when the cue is fired. A Cross indicates that any changes will not be recalled.

The Ripple Down Function : If ripple down is off (not highlighted), then assignments made, or cleared, will only happen to the one cell being edited. If Ripple Down is on, then changes made are duplcated in the following cues until a change of state is met. Then the change of assignment stops.

Assigning Members : Press the Assign button, then touch the cell to assign. The Assign panel will open. Select the channel or set to assign. Custom assignments can be made by touching the first channel to assign, then holding the shift-key (on the physical keyboard) and selecting more cells. When a Set is touched, it’s members are automatically selected. This selection can then be adjusted by holding the shift-key and selecting cells.

If a channel has Aliases, they will be listed below the channel number. Selecting an Alias assigns the Alias to the Control Group, and also makes that Alias active in the given channel for that cue.

Changes made to CG Assignments are only shown on the worksurface (become active) once a Cue has been fired. For example, add a Channel 1 to a CG 1 in Cue 3. Channel 1 will not show as a member of CG1 until cue 3 is fired.

For clarity, only input channels are shown in the assign panel. Output channels can be viewed by switching off the Inputs Only function.

The channels are displayed as you would find them on the surface; left and right worksurfaces, arranged in banks and layers.

Clearing Assignments : To clear an assignment, press the Clear button at the bottom of the Panel, then touch the cell to clear. Assignments can also be cleared using the Right-Click on the Keyboard.

NOTE : When assigning and clearing assignments, make sure that the Ripple Down function is correctly set -There is no Undo Function !

Renaming : Select a cell, then press the Rename button. Enter a new name.

Contol Group Name Colour Coding: The colour of the CG name indicates where cahnges have taken place in the Cue List.

Black entry = Original selection of a single channel, bank or set of channels.

Green entry = A "Rippled" entry which is the same as the CG in the previous Cue Blue entry = A variation on the original selection normally created by holding the keyboard SHIFT key and adding or removing selections.

A2.3.5 Channel Cues

Located in the master screen Layout menu The Channel Cues panel shows the Channel Settings used in each channel in each cue, and allows the selection of alternative settings.

Channel Settings and Aliases A key feature of SD7 is the ability to manipulate channel settings. If you consider the settings that make up a single channel, there are 11

key modules that when combined, make a single channel (or a channel setting). These are:
