[0006]
As described above, according to the configuration of the present invention, a specific function
selected from the functions displayed in the block diagram showing the functions of signal
processing or mixing processing performed on a plurality of input signals is assigned to an
operator. The user can easily recognize the relation between the function and the operator.
[0007]
1.
Configuration of Embodiment Next, the configuration of a mixing apparatus (operator function
setting apparatus) according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described with
reference to FIG.
In FIG. 1, reference numeral 10 denotes an input interface, which receives a digital audio signal
or converts an analog audio signal into a digital audio signal and inputs it. An output interface 15
outputs a digital audio signal or converts the digital audio signal into an analog audio signal and
outputs it. Note that a plurality of input terminals and output terminals are provided, and also
correspond to stereo signals. Reference numeral 20 denotes a DSP which digitally processes an
input signal. An operation unit 30 includes various switches and knobs. The operation unit will
be described below with reference to the panel external view of FIG.
[0008]
In FIG. 2, reference numeral 110 denotes a channel strip, which is provided for each input signal.
The channel strip 110 sets a selector switch 111 for setting whether or not each input signal is
selected as a signal for mixing, a PAN controller 112 for distributing the input signal to each of
the left and right output channels, bass, middle tone, There are provided respective operators
116, 117, 118 of the equalizer function for adjusting each frequency characteristic of high-
10-04-2019
3
pitched sound, and a fader 113 for adjusting the input level. An operator strip 120 is provided
with controls such as a switch 121, a rotary encoder 122, and a fader 123, and the controls are
set to functions desired by the operator. An assignment switch 130 switches between the normal
mode and the assignment mode at each press. Here, the normal mode is a mode in which signal
processing such as adjustment of input level and mixing processing are performed using the
respective operators of the channel strip 110 or the operator strip 120. The assignment mode is
a mode in which each function of signal processing and mixing processing is displayed on the
display as a block diagram, and each function is assigned to an operator of the operator strip 120
as necessary. In the assignment mode, the assignment switch 130 illuminates.
[0009]
Referring again to FIG. 1, reference numeral 40 denotes a display unit, which includes a liquid
crystal panel. Reference numeral 50 denotes a CPU, which controls each unit. 60 is a RAM, which
is used as a work memory. Reference numeral 70 denotes a ROM, which stores programs and
parameters. Each unit transmits and receives instructions and data via the bus line 80. The
mixing apparatus 100 is configured by the above components.
[0010]
2.
Operation of Embodiment The operation of the mixing device 100 of the present embodiment
will be described. When the power is turned on, the operation mode is set to the normal mode.
Then, the routine shown in FIG. 4 is started by the interrupt processing each time the operation
of each operation of the operation of the operation strip of the channel strip 110 or the operator
strip 120, the mouse movement, the mouse operation, the depression of the assignment switch
130, etc. . First, it is assumed that an operator of the channel strip 110 is operated.
[0011]
In step SP5, an operation mode management process is performed. In the operation mode
management process, the process differs between activation when the assign switch 130 is
pressed and other activations. At start-up when the assignment switch 130 is pressed, the
assignment mode and the normal mode are changed. However, the mode change is not
performed by activation by another operation. Since this activation is activation of the channel
10-04-2019
4
strip 110 by operation of the controller, the mode is not changed, and the operation mode is
maintained in the normal mode. Then, the process proceeds to step SP10, where it is determined
whether or not it is in the assignment mode. Here, since the operation mode is not set to the
assignment mode, it is determined as "NO", and the process proceeds to step SP15 and the
normal process is performed. That is, based on the operation state of the operation element of
the channel strip 110, settings of signal processing such as equalizer adjustment, input level
adjustment, and mixing processing are performed. Then, the interrupt processing ends.
[0012]
Next, when the assign switch 130 is pressed, the routine of FIG. 4 starts up again. Then, in step
SP5, the mode is changed from the normal mode at power on to the assignment mode. Therefore,
in step SP10, it is determined as "YES", and the process proceeds to step SP20. In step SP20, a
block diagram describing processing functions and the like and a mouse cursor are displayed on
the display unit 40, and scrolling and screen switching of the block diagram are performed as
necessary. Here, the contents of the block diagram will be described with reference to FIG.
[0013]
In the figure, reference numeral 151 denotes a fader operator image, and reference numeral 153
denotes a selector switch operator image. Reference numeral 155 denotes an equalizer unit
image, which expresses an equalizer function. An output-side equalizer unit image 140 gives
frequency characteristics to the output signal of the mixing bus. Furthermore, it is represented by
the block diagram that input signals via these operators and functions are mixed with other input
signals via a mixing bus. Note that equalizer operation images 156, 157, and 158 expressing
HIGH, MID, and LOW are displayed in addition to the equalizer unit images 155 and 140,
respectively.
[0014]
Then, after the block diagram is displayed, the process proceeds to step SP25, and it is
determined whether or not the manipulator image specified on the block diagram already exists.
At the time of the first execution, the operator image is not specified on the block diagram, so it
is determined as "NO", and the process proceeds to step SP30. In step SP30, it is determined
whether or not a manipulator image designation operation event on the block diagram has
10-04-2019
5
occurred. Here, although the presence or absence of the left click operation of the mouse is
determined on the controller image, since the left click is not performed at the first execution, the
determination is “NO”, and the interrupt processing ends.
[0015]
By the way, in the present embodiment, a part of the processing function of displaying the
operator image is realized by the operation of the operator of the operator strip 120. In order to
assign a part of the processing function to each operator of the operator strip 120, the mouse
cursor is moved to an arbitrary operator image, and the operator image is specified by
performing a left click operation. Subsequently, by performing the right-click operation, the
operators (assignment operators) of the operator strip 120 are displayed as items. Furthermore,
the assignment destination operator is selected by performing the left click operation.
Hereinafter, these processes will be described on the assumption that the equalizer operator
image 156 is designated by the mouse moving operation and the left click operation, and the
rotary encoder 122 of the operator strip 120 is selected as the assignment destination operator.
[0016]
First, the mouse movement operation starts the routine of FIG. 4 again. Then, the process
proceeds to step SP20 through step SP5 and step SP10, and movement display of the mouse
cursor is performed. Then, in step SP30, as long as there is no left click operation on the mouse,
it is determined as "NO", and the interrupt processing is finished. Furthermore, the activation of
the routine of FIG. 4 is repeated and the movement of the mouse cursor is continued until the
movement operation of the mouse is stopped.
[0017]
Next, by performing a left click operation of the mouse, the routine of FIG. 4 is activated again. In
this case, in step SP30, if the left click operation is not the left click operation of the mouse by
moving the mouse cursor on the operation element image, it is determined as "NO", and the
interrupt processing ends. Then, the movement operation of the mouse is performed again. On
the other hand, if the left click operation is the left click operation of the mouse after moving the
left click operation onto the manipulator image, it is determined as "YES", and the process
proceeds to step SP35. In step SP35, the display mode of the designated operator image
10-04-2019
6
(equalizer operator image 156) changes, and it is displayed that it is designation for the operator
image. For example, it is displayed by the change in brightness of the designated manipulator
image. Then, the process proceeds to step SP40. In step SP40, it is determined whether or not
the selection operation of the assignment destination operator has been performed. That is, it is
determined whether the right click operation on the mouse has been performed on the
designated operator image. Since the left click operation of the mouse has been performed this
time, there is no right click operation, it is determined as "NO", and the interrupt processing ends.
[0018]
Next, a process of selecting an assignment destination operator by right-clicking the mouse in a
state where an operator image is specified will be described. First, the routine of FIG. 4 is
activated again by the right click operation of the mouse. In this case, "YES" is determined in step
SP25, and the process proceeds to step SP40. In step SP40, if the mouse operation is a right click
operation by moving the mouse cursor over the manipulator image designated in step SP30,
"YES" is determined, and the process proceeds to step SP45. In step SP45, an assignment
destination control menu is displayed. For example, by designating the equalizer operator image
156 on the block diagram, the operator menu 160 is displayed (see FIG. 3). In the operator menu,
items of “switch”, “rotary encoder”, and “fader” provided on the operator strip 120 are
displayed. In the case of designation of the equalizer operator image 156, since the rotary
encoder or the fader should be selected by the function of the equalizer, the item of "switch" is
displayed in "light". Furthermore, the display of the "cancel" item for canceling the setting of the
control element image on the set block diagram is also performed. Then, it waits until the item of
the assignment destination operator is selected by the left click operation of the mouse. Here, it is
assumed that “rotary encoder” is selected as the assignment destination operator.
[0019]
Next, when the process proceeds to step SP50, the controller function of the controller image
designated on the block diagram is assigned to the selected allocation destination controller.
Specifically, since the equalizer operator image 156 representing the high frequency adjustment
of the equalizer is designated in step SP30, the equalizer function is assigned to the assignment
destination operator (the rotary encoder 122). Furthermore, the color of the control element
image on the block diagram is changed, and it is displayed that it has been assigned. Then, the
interrupt processing ends.

[0020]
Then, the above-described processing is repeated a plurality of times until each operation
element of the operator strip 120 is set to the target function. In the determination of step SP 25
in this case, there are a control element image assigned to the assignment destination control
element (operator strip 120) and a control element image not assigned to the assignment
destination control element. The assigned operator image is not subjected to the determination.
That is, if there is an operator image designated on the block diagram for an operator image not
assigned to the assignment destination operator, it is determined as "YES", and the operator
designated on the block diagram If the image does not exist, it is determined as "NO". Further, in
step SP45, the item of the assignment destination operation element already assigned is
displayed in light color, and the operation element of this item is not assigned unless the
designation of the operation element image is canceled. Furthermore, the operators of the
operator strip are also assigned to the operators of the output-side equalizer.
[0021]
Next, when the setting of the assignment destination operator is completed, the assign switch
130 is pressed again by the operator. Thereby, the routine of FIG. 4 is started again. In step SP5,
when the assign switch is pressed, the operation mode is changed to the normal mode, and the
assign switch 130 is turned off. Therefore, in step SP10, it is determined as "NO", the process
proceeds to step SP15, and the normal process is performed. However, when the assignment
mode is changed to the normal mode, no processing is performed, and the interrupt processing
ends.
[0022]
Further, when the operation of the channel strip 110 or the operation of the operator of the
operator strip 120 is performed, the routine of FIG. 4 is started again. Again, "NO" is determined
in step SP10, and the normal process is performed. That is, setting of signal processing and
mixing processing is performed based on the new operation state of the operating element of the
channel strip 110 or the operator strip 120. Then, the interrupt processing ends. Specifically,
when the equalizer operator image 156 is assigned to the rotary encoder 122, the high
frequency of the equalizer is adjusted by the setting of the rotary encoder 122. Then, it is mixed
with another input signal through the mixing bus, and is further output through the output side

equalizer unit image 140.
[0023]
As described above, according to the present embodiment, even a beginner can easily set the
function of the operator strip operator if the function of the block diagram can be understood. As
a result, it becomes easy to use one operation element to a plurality of functions and to perform
mixing operation depending on the use situation. Furthermore, when operating a mixing device
having a large operation panel, it is possible to assign the function of the control of the channel
strip located at a position difficult to reach to the operator of the operator strip located at a
position easy to reach.

Modifications The present invention is not limited to the above-described embodiment, and the
following modifications are possible, for example. (1)Although the operator strip 120 is provided
on the mixing device body in the above embodiment, the operator strip 120 may be configured
to be separated from the body, and the mixing may be controlled remotely by the operator strip
120.
[0025]
(2)
In the above embodiment, the function of the mixer is shown as a block diagram and displayed
on the display unit 40, but a number, letter or symbol is uniquely set to each switch of the block
diagram described in the instruction manual, and mixing Each switch or the like on the block
diagram may be assigned to the operator strip operator by inputting the number, letters or
symbols on the device. Also in this case, by using the block diagram displayed on the display unit
(liquid crystal panel) together with inputting the number, characters or symbols, even in the case
of a large block diagram, in the vicinity of the target operator image The screen can be moved,
which makes it easy to specify an operator image.

possible to display the operator strip 120 on the screen. Thereby, the operator strip operating
element corresponding to the operating element image designated on the block diagram can be
directly operated. The program stored in the ROM 70 can be stored and distributed in a storage
medium such as a CD-ROM, a flexible disk, or the like, or can be distributed via a
telecommunication line.
