direct action buttons in ETC


In grandMA I have a direct action buttons, I want to know if its possible to have a direct action buttons in ETC, 


  • If you describe what a direct action button does, you might get an answer ;)

  • in MA a direct action buttons its a cue or a fx or a color chase you only touch the screen and the content of that button activate and if you touch again the button off, I don't want to use a sub because I only have 20 


  • Hi, this sort of idea of "direct action buttons" from what I can understand can be done from the previous post can be accomplished by writing macros, making presets, color pallets, beam pallets focus pallets etc. Maybe you can accomplish what you're trying to do by making direct selects (rows of buttons that any content can be assigned to) or you can use the fader page in eos to get more faders or you could make a magic sheet and use macros. Long story short, you should watch the eos training video for direct selects and other training videos: and there are many more videos on how to create content for direct selects such as  macros, presets, color pallets, beam pallets focus pallets all on the ETC youtube channel. Also, if you want a solution for more subs you can simply add a new tab in eos and select faders. This will give you extra row of faders as if you were to use a fader wing. You can simply load any sub of your choice onto these virtual faders.  Hope that this helps -- Sam

  • The little problem is, you can`t toggle with DS.
    If you start an FX -for example- you can`t stop this FX with a second press on same DS knob.

  • but a virtual fader on screen with a go button set to hold. press, fader go up. press once more and fader go down. I guess you even can make only go buttons in Magic Sheet, so you don't have to see the fader and the rest of the buttons.
