Submasters on Express consoles


Express provides you with 24 submaster sliders. A submaster is a group of channels recorded at proportional levels and controlled by a slider and a bump button. Submasters enable you to save complex looks you use frequently and play them back manually. They can also be used as building blocks when you create scenes, cues or other submasters.

A channel may be included in any number of submasters. You can record a total of 240 submasters (24 submasters in each of ten pages of submaster memory).

Each submaster slider is accompanied by a bump button and one LED. The slider allows you to bring up the submaster look manuallyThe bump button allows you to flash the submaster to its full recorded level or to begin its programmed fade, if it has one. The LEDs show you which sliders control recorded submasters.
