I work with cues for plays and musicals but typically I busk off of submasters on our etc Element. Because we have out grown it we have purchased an ETC ion xe. Here's the first of a few reasons I'm regretting my decision. Switching between my channels and submasters was very easy and done entirely without looking on the Element. It is a simple knob. I knew without looking what channels or submasters I was in. On the Ion you have to do 2 things: hold down Fader page and then click the bottom right bump button. If you do this in a rush it doesn't always work. A nightmare for someone who may need to access a certain channel quickly. Anyone know of a solution? ETC says Macros will not work.
