    We have a strand board. what model number I can't tell you cause I don't know, I'm assuming they're all relatively the same.

    My question is this:
    How, if possible, do you group cues so that if you hit Go and it goes to the next cue, it is automatically timed to wait a preprogrammed number of seconds before it goes to the next cue.

    Is that possible?

    Yes it is possilbe, what you are looking for is the wait button. If you are on a 300 or 500 series (the laptop looking board or the big green thing) it should be to the left of the number pad. If you put a wait of 5 on a cue it will wait 5 seconds before taking the next cue. If you are on a GSX you will have to type cue # time wait (its a softkey after you press time) "wait time you want" enter.
    On an etc console this is known as a follow. You can also easily modify the wait time in XRef, but remember anything you change in xref is changed without haveing to re-record it, so be careful!
