Topic: TotalMix Live Lemur template
I used the most recent Lemur template RME posted (the one that includes meters) and made some edits to make it more useful (to me anyway) for live work. Specifically it allows one "click" control of submixes from the main mixer page. It also uses scripting of color changes to more clearly highlight which submix is active. To be fully useful to others this template requires some modifications to account for how each of us uses TM in a live setting, so I am posting what I hope are clear instructions on how to make these edits:
The template is in the folder linked below, and is named TotalMix Live 080713 (note the "live" part as there is another template in the same folder).
I cleared space on the right by deleting buttons I don't find very useful for live work (e.g. dim, recall, speaker B) and added buttons to directly select different submixes. I my case I have FOH, wedges/foldback. and three IEMs, but these can be tailored to suit one's needs.
For each button I used the "selectSubmix" command and scripting to change the color of each button so that the button associated the selected submix is yellow, and all others are blue. Each button has its own name within Lemur, called Submix1-Submix5.
In the example below I clicked the Submix2 button, for which I added the text field "IEM 2." On the lower right, you can see that I have clicked the "action" command associated with this button. In the panel bottom center you can see the script that is activated each time the button is pushed. The script 1) assigns the submix I want, in this case 9, 2) changes the color of the Submix2 button to yellow, and 3) assigns the colors of the other submixes to blue. One can easily see which submix is selected in this way. Note that TM expects a decimal for each submix, so you need to specify you want e.g. submix 1.0, not just 1.
To change the name of the text shown in each button, go the lower right panel again and click the "init" command. You will then be able to type in whatever text you want in the first line of the lower center panel:
The only bug I have found is minor but I am not sure what the problem is. Upon launching, all of these submix section buttons have a black background. Once you select any of them, they all jump to their appropriate blue or yellow color. If anyone knows how to fix this please let me know, but it does not affect any functionality.
I also made some minor formatting changes to the template RME provided. I moved the name of each track above the decibel display, and made the decibel display a bit smaller and a darker color so I can more quickly spot the name of the input or output. Lastly, I added record, play, and stop buttons in the Reverb/Echo page. Note you need to double click "stop" to stop a recording.
Hope this is helpful. Please let me know if anything is unclear or if you have suggestions for improvements.
