Mixing Station Tips: USB Player Controls

Post by RexBeckett »

When I'm running my XR12, MR12 or XR16, I often use the USB Player for break music and to record the mix. To make this easier, I have a group of controls at the bottom right of the layouts. See attached.

The grey box displays the currently selected track. A touch opens the USB Player window for folder/track/source selection. The Play button doubles as Pause if long-pressed while playing. An illuminated Record button is a good reminder to hit Stop before turning the mixer off! The controls are all buttons. These are the settings:

Heading
Button 8x1, Label: "USB Player", Margin: 0, Theme: White, Touch: None,

Box
Button 8x2, Label: "[value]", Margin: 0, Theme: Regular, Touch: Single,
Action: USB Player -> Labels -> Title
Action: Open View -> USB Player

Time Field
Button 4x1, Label: "Time: [value]", Margin: 1, Theme: Blue, Touch: None,
Action: USB Player -> Labels -> Elapsed Time

Left Field
Button 4x1, Label: "Left: [value]", Margin: 1, Theme: Blue, Touch: None,
Action: USB Player -> Labels -> Remaining Time

Record
Button 4x2, Label: "Record", Margin: 1, Theme: Red, Touch: Long,
Action: USB Player -> Buttons -> Rec

Play
Button 4x2, Label: "[value]", Margin: 1, Theme: Green, Touch: Long,
Action: USB Player -> Buttons -> Play

Stop
Button 4x2, Label: "Stop", Margin: 1, Theme: Yellow, Touch: Long,
Action: USB Player -> Buttons -> Stop

I seems all commands are there though to have it working. I'll check that soon.
