Hi David this is a request on behalf of Manuel Cohnen.
Could you add an option for auto gain compensation.
What i mean is say you've just done sound check and have set all your preamp gains, foh fader levels, iem mix buses, fx buses, compressor & gate thresholds and it comes time for show time the band starts and instantly because they're in show mode they're playing louder and some levels might be peaking.
You take the gain of a channel and reduce it to compensate for the softer playing in sound check and of course this adjustment changes the bands iem mixes, channel compressor & gate thresholds and bus fx sends.
It would be good if the desk would take a calculation from whichever way you turn the gain and it would adjust any related bus sends or dynamics thresholds accordingly.
Ie..3db of preamp gain up, turns the iem mixes levels down 3db, same in fx buses and any other sends relating to that channel or dynamics thresholds.
A lot of guys are running their own sound from stage due and might not be able to have an experienced foh operator due to budget etc...
Imagine you're a band member who all of sudden needs to reach over and push the gain up or down during a song or in between a song, going into buses and dynamics to adjust relative balancd is crucial time a band doesnt have
