    Does anyone know if there is a way on the Express 48/96 to make the A/B faders and the C/D faders two seperate cue stacks?

    Nope.

    And given that Express/ion is a single cue list/stack console, and after 10 years of running Express, I'm not clear as to how one uses a second fader set without stepping all over the first.

    Ummmm... I do it all the time. Just don't record the channels you don't want to change. It makes perfect sense to me.

    Ummm..... Express being a Cue-Only console makes it really hard to not record the channels you don't want to move. In that recording a cue inherently records an action for every channel.

    I've put "conventional" light cues on the A/B while doing some "movers" on the C/D Fader. Not really difficult if you're controlling your movers via instrument patch. Mentally it's exhausting but it can be done.

    Really hard is not the same as impossible. It was very easy to me. I used to run conventionals on subs, run my Studio Colors on the A/B faders and my Studio Spots on the C/D faders. In fact I was faster programming cues on it for the longest time because the way the Hog recorded cues didn't make sense to me. It took me a couple of months to really get the hang of the Hog after a few years on the Express/Expression.
