Fader Status display

The fader status display consists of two windows located near the bottom of the Stage and Blind displays.

The fader status display provides information about the cues loaded to the console’s faders, including fade times and rates. The left window monitors the A/B fader; the right window monitors the C/D fader. The display counts down wait times for cues and indicates which step is running when an effect is active.
