Memory Playback in SmartFade

Memories are played back from the faders in MEMS mode. In each of the 12 fader pages the buttons with memories stored will light up dimmed in red when a page is selected. When the fader is contributing to the output, the button will light up in full.

Select Fader Page

If a fader is above zero when a different page is selected, it will not be updated to the content of the new page until it is brought to zero. Press MEMS twice within 1 second to select page 1 quickly.

As long as the button is held, the current fader page is indicated with a lit bump 1-12. Bumps for pages with recorded information will blink. To select a new page, press bump 1-12 and let go of the MEMS button.

  • OFF = The level generated by pressing a bump button adds into the live output.
  • ON = The level generated by pressing a bump button replaces the current output.
