    Does anyone know if it's possible to put an effect onto a fader on an ETC Ion? I found a shortcut to doing it by making separate cue lists then putting one cue with that effect on the cue and then assign it to a fader by hitting both bump buttons at the same time. It just doesn't seem to work that well... it is quite confusing to use them during a live concert. Lol. Thanks!

    I suspect it will do something like:

    ;)

    Useful for finding a particular channel, and similar to what many consoles term "highlight," which I think is also on the list.

    The ETC Users Forum has many posts about this very subject, including many useful work-arounds .

    As of right now your method is the only on that will really work. According to Anne V (who finds her way around CB from time to time) the effects on subs will be a part of the 1.5 software. Expected in March.

    Look here for the rest of the info LINK

    Hello everyone, it has been a while! Does anyone know if/when version 1.5 is coming out? Or does version 1.4.5 actually contain this feature? Thanks!

    The latest word around here is that it will come out when it will come out... Possibly somewhere around the end of April. Effects on subs should most definitely be on there. Also it is my understanding that we should keep an eye out for the iRFR iphone app to come out sometime around 1.5's release

    Ok thanks for the quick reply! That is awesome about the remote control! I have an iTouch, hopefully it'll work over WiFi. Thanks for the response. Marshall

    For the iRFR you will have to have your own closed wireless network dedicated to your Ion and the iPhone. The app is expected to run around $40-$50 or so...

    Really looking forward to fx on subs without having to do all kinds of magic to get them to work as long as you remember to press the right button before you use the sub.
