I had a chance to play with the T8s today and noticed something that seemed a little annoying.

 

When I turned to the Pan/Aux setting, it would default to PAN even after switching into Aux.

 

So every time I want to make an AUX adjustment, I would have to click out of the Pan setting to show the Aux settings, then scroll to click the Aux 1 out, and then finally make adjustments. A lot of steps!

 

Is this normal behavior.  Way more work than it used to be, especially compared to T1.  

 

I can't remember if the T4s I have does this.

What you have described is the normal behaviour.

The approach to Pan/Aux is the same in the T4S and T8S.

The reasons there are more steps in the T8S/T4S than the T1 are:

  1. There was no Pan control in the T1
  2. In the T1 there was only one Aux output compared to
    • Two Aux outputs for the T4S
    • Four Aux outputs for the T8S
  3. In the T1 there were no Aux inputs to manage compared to
    • Two Aux inputs for each of the T4S and T8S


In the T4S/T8S there are more features available under the Pan/Aux than the simple T1 Aux.  That's why there are more steps.

When you switch to Pan/Aux on the rotary selector, it defaults to Pan settings because that affects the main outputs (what the audience hears) for the channel you have selected. Yes, if you want to make changes to any of the Aux routings, you need to use the menu to select which Aux function you want to affect.

ok, thanks ST. I was hoping I could avoid having to do 3 steps.

Turn the knob to PAN/AUX

1. Click the left toggle button to go to Aux 

2. Scroll down to Aux Output (1, 2 3, etc)

3. Then finally adjust/edit the channel.

Too bad PAN and Aux are not two seprate things as it would be easier to control when you want to make quick adjusmtnets.

I got so used to the T1 and loved how fast I could make changes.

wait, I think I realized the aux inputs are 5/6 on the T4s and 9/10 on the T8s, BUT those aux inputs are NOT routed through the AUX outputs, only master?  Is this correct?

 

Lastly, am I able to use the XLRs master outputs at the same time as the 1/4 outputs right above?

another question--

What is the aux input for and how would one utilize that?

Correct. See: T8S Aux Inputs

Yes. You get identical outputs.

If there were a separate option on the Rotary selector for Aux, you would eliminate step 1 above. You would still have the same number of steps after that.  On the other hand, you would add one more click as you move around the rotary selector.
