Group masters and pages

Firewood1Firewood1 Registered User, Hog Beta
Hello,

I have never really used Group Masters before as inhibits and now i've had a play with them on the Hog 4 i'm a little confused.

I am trying to set up the console so that if I change page, the Group Master will remain effective in the background, and I will then gain live control of a different Group Master on the new page.

Currently, when I switch pages, although the console remembers the fader level, the master effectively behaves as though it's at 100% until I return to the page.

I have tried the setting "leave in background." This works for cuelists but not for group masters.

Am I doing something wrong?

Cheers

    Only way to keep the active at the moment is to put them on a template-page.

    So you are doing nothing wrong. There are requests and discussions how group-masters should be handled....

    So currently we are limited by the number of physical faders we have, otherwise by changing page they will not hold their levels.

    I'd certainly like to see the ability to hold the levels and remember the fader level. Now we have motorised faders I think this would be an excellent feature.

    Unfortunately we have to deal with this at the moment. Hope that a future will bring an update/new feature

    I would like to see group master accessed from the list or scene window or a dedicated show window, somewhere where show playback items could be shown and trim the level with an encoder as an option.

    As the screens are bigger I would also like to see screen faders were group mastering, haze, smoke machines, venues house lights, things that need faders, but not at the expense of a physical fader could be, items of less faderage necessity need a better home.

    Andy & Colin:
    If you own an ipad you could create a TouchOSC layout only with faders as a workaround for those missing screen-faders
    All 9 playback-bars incl faders are available via OSC

    Hi Marc, I am doing this with a touch screen laptop at the moment, that works fine and is enough for my needs and keeps the main consoles faders clear for er... flash and trash.

    The new larger screens would be great for a dedicated executor page, somewhere to store palettes, cues, whatever might be useful in one location for show playback.

    The user-kind buttons will receive more functions in one of the next releases.

    And with scenes in use this might be a nice combination for busking shows....

    Touchscreen-PC works also... But needs to log into the show... The OSC-solution is very handy and no needs for running an extra HOG-PC
