Hi Guys. I’ve been thinking about this one for a while now, and I can’t think of a way to do it.
About 2/3s of our songs have tracks, the other 3rd just use a click track. On the songs that have backing tracks, I have the song set up to automatically load a different song when the tracks are done playing. This song is my “mute” song, which resets the lights, FX units, etc, to a default state. Currently that happens via binding “Transport/On Position: x.xx/Setlist/Load Song With Program (Instant): 1”.
For the songs that are just a click track, when we’re done playing the song, I manually select the “Mute” song using an RFX128 floor pedal. In order to skip banking up or down, I put the “Mute” song in the set list multiple times , so PC1, PC10, PC20, PC30 are all the “mute” song. This also works fine.
What I’d like to do, if possible, is have the songs that are running tracks automatically load the closest “Mute” song, so that the previous/next songs in the set list are still listed on the screen.
I can change the binding to load the “mute” song at PC10, or PC30, for instance. But if I do that per song, when I use a different set list, the songs won’t go to the right “mute” song.
I’d like to keep use of the multiple “mute” songs instead of putting the bindings to reset the devices in every single song.
