Converting a standard cue to a multipart cue on an Express console

If you have already created a single-part cue, the console allows you to reconfigure it as a multipart cue. You can convert a standard cue to a multipart cue in either Stage or Blind mode, but it’s easier in Blind because levels are highlighted.

Once you create the first part, all channels not assigned to that part are automatically assigned to part 8. As you create additional parts from channels in part 8, they are deleted from part 8 and added to the selected part.

Follow these steps to convert cue 1, assumed to be a standard cue, to a multipart cue. This example is in Blind. To perform the equivalent procedure in Stage, run the cue in the faders before preceding with step 3.

Keystrokes: Actions:
1. Press [Blind]. Selects [Blind] display
2. Press [Cue] [1]. Selects cue 1
3. Press [Channel] and select the channels for a part.a  
4. Press [S7], More Softkeys, until Part appears as softkey [S1]. Finds the Part softkey
5. Press [S1], Part, followed by the part’s number and then [Enter]. Creates the designated part.
6. Repeat steps 3-5 to create the other parts, as desired Creates more parts for this cue.

a. If in Stage, selection defaults to channels so you do not need to press [Channel].
