APC40+APC20 Questions for users.

Post by UKRuss » Tue Jan 11, 2011 1:31 pm

Decided to expand my fader count, mixing on just the 40 is a pain, 16 would be much better. Queries though:

If you run both the 20 and the 40 at the same time does the master fader on the 20 become a track fader or does it control the master as well?

I assume it can be midi-mapped anyway but does it automatically revert to ordinary fader use, would be cool if it does.

See manual, section 27.7 "Combination Mode".

Each APC gets 8 tracks, so I guess the masters stay on the master - which makes sense as they have different controls.
Nothing to see here - move along!

Well scene selector should have been a rotary control anywhere - guess you could emap the cue level on he APC20 to do that leaving you with a spare fader and a buton :)
