When running a theatrical production there are many powerful options that the SD7T software provides you with giving you greater flexibility than ever before.
In theatre mode you have access to more powerful cue list automation and editing. Now you can easily update specific parameters, across all cues automatically, using Auto Update mode, which gives you the ability to alter your cues on the fly.
Channel Aliases are also introduced allowing a collection of channel parameters to be applied to any channel on the desk. Simply by assigning a different channel alias from one cue to the next applies the alias parameters, giving you the option to essentially re-use the channel and swap back to the original alias with ease. Using Auto Update in this scenario will only effect the alias you are working on, keeping your alternatives safe.
Complex parameter specific custom aliases can also be created allowing the operator to change only that which is needed from one alias to another — power that makes EQ alteration due to costume changes a breeze for example.
Copying aliases from channel to channel or from cue to cue is also now quick and easy, making programming a pleasure. The use of Channel Sets is yet another step forward allowing easy allocation of groups of channels to VCAs when building cues. In the real world this would make assigning a woodwind or brass section to a VCA a one step process.
Most theatrical productions use a distributed loudspeaker system and the powerful 32 x 32 matrix provides individual crosspoint delays on each of the matrix nodes with times up to 1.3 seconds. These delays on each and every individual node can be recorded in the cue list giving accurate control of audio placement and time alignment.
This powerful toolset complements the standard high quality, efficient workflow processes that are built into every SD7 giving you the tools you need to get the job done in a logical and methodical manner allowing more time to concentrate on being creative.
