Instruction Manual
[0004]
By the way, the applicant has proposed the following mixer (unopened Japanese Patent
Application No. 2005-76684). In this mixer, a channel selection operator for selecting one
channel from a plurality of channels, and n groups (n is an integer of 2 or more) of a plurality of
channels are grouped to select one from these groups. An operator is provided. On the operation
panel, there are n assigned channel strips arranged in the horizontal direction, n assigned
channel strips, arranged in front of the display and equipped with operators for setting
parameters for one channel, and A parameter operation unit is provided, which is disposed on
the left hand and has a plurality of assignment knob operators for setting parameters for one
selected channel. Then, the corresponding group is selected according to the operation of the
group selection operator, and the n channels of the selected group are assigned to the n
assignment channel strips of the assignment channel strip section, and a plurality of the n
channels The group screen displaying the parameter setting status is displayed on the display so
that the display area of the plurality of parameters of the channels assigned to the assigned
channel strip is arranged at the position above the assigned channel strip. Furthermore,
according to the operation of the ch selection operation, the corresponding ch is selected, and the
10-04-2019

plurality of parameters of the selected ch are assigned to the plurality of assignment knob
operators of the parameter operation unit, and the plurality of assignment knob operations of the
parameter operation unit The display elements of the knob operator are displayed in the
arrangement corresponding to the arrangement of the child, and the parameter screen of the
setting condition of the plural parameters of the ch is displayed on the display by the display
elements of the knob operators.

is desired.
[0006]
By the way, in such a mixer, if it is intended to display all the parameters of each channel in the
area for displaying the parameter setting status of each channel of the group screen, a large
display is required.
It is also conceivable to reduce the size of the display by switching and displaying some
parameters, but in that case, it is necessary to look at the parameter values while checking which
parameter is displayed, and the operability is degraded. . Therefore, it is not preferable to switch
and display the parameters on the group screen for displaying a plurality of channels, and it is
desirable that the display contents of each channel be fixed.
[0007]
In addition, in changing the parameter value by the drag operation of the digital mixer with a
touch display, it is difficult to set to a desired value and there is a problem that the display is
easily soiled since the finger is rubbed. It is desirable to change parameter values not with the
touch screen but with a separate parameter handler.
[0008]
Further, although the same parameters can be manipulated on both the (1) parameter page and
10-04-2019

the (2) page of the selected ch, the same parameter can not be easily alternated back and forth.
For example, with respect to a certain parameter of a certain ch, (1) setting while comparing that
parameter with the same parameter of the other ch, (2) operating alternately referring to other
parameters of the ch, In the case, it is necessary to alternately perform the operation of (1)
selecting and operating the switch of the parameter from a plurality of parameter screen
switches, and (2) operating the switch for displaying the ch screen.
[0009]
The present invention aims to provide a digital mixer having an easy-to-use user interface
capable of easily controlling parameter values even with a display of limited size, and in
particular, for certain parameters of a certain channel. Even if the parameter is set while
comparing with the same parameter of another channel, or the operation is alternately
performed while referring to the other parameter of that channel, the operation can be
performed with good operability. Do. Another object of the present invention is to make it
possible to operate the touch display with good operability by effectively using the touch display
and to make the touch display less polluting.

606 is set to the knob in the selected state. The cursor 606 has a ring shape that overlaps the
display of the knob. In particular, no matter which knob of any channel in the display area 600-1
to 600-8 of each channel is touched, the knobs of the same position in the display areas 600-1 to
600-8 of all the channels are simultaneously paralleled. It is selected (note that the operation
when the already selected knob is touched again will be described later). For example, when the
knob 604-3 in the display area 600-2 is touched, all eight knobs 604-3 in the display areas 6001 to 600-8 are selected. At this time, eight cursors displayed in parallel are called an 8-ch ring.
The values of the parameters corresponding to the knobs selected in parallel can be changed
independently by the rotary encoders 536-1 to 536-8 of the assigned channel strips 530-1 to
530-8, respectively. The parameter operation unit 422 described above can perform parallel
operation of a plurality of parameters of the selected channel by focusing attention on the
selected channel, while the rotary encoder 536 can select one parameter selected by touch.
Focusing on (e.g., the level of transmission to any one of the MIX buses 206), parallel operation
of the parameters for eight channels assigned to assigned channel strips 530-1 to 530-8 can be
performed. Thus, for example, in the case of the transmission level, parallel operation of
transmission levels from the focused input channel to a plurality of MIX buses and parallel
operation of transmission levels from eight input channels to one focused MIX bus The balance
adjustment can be easily performed in two ways from the ch side and the parameter side.

When one of the knobs in the display area 600-1 to 600-8 is in the selected state, touching any
button executes the function corresponding to the button operation. There is no change. Note
that not only does the 8 knobs at the same position as that knob be selected by the touch of the
knob, but at the same time the channel assigned to the assignment channel strip to which the
touched knob belongs is The channel to be controlled may be selected. In addition, the function
of interlockingly selecting the ch to be controlled may be enabled / disabled according to the
user's request.
[0035]
Reference numeral 620 denotes a display area such as a button used when various settings of
the mixer are performed, and a meter indicating the L / R and C output signal levels of the stereo
output ch. Reference numeral 621 denotes a button for switching the operation mode of the
electric fader 105 (e.g., 535 in FIG. 5) of FIG. When the button 621 is in the off state, the "normal
mode" is set, and the motorized faders of the respective channel strips serve as faders for
controlling the level of the corresponding channel signal, and the signal level (gain) at the
position of the fader 307 in FIG. Control. When the button 621 is in the on state, the "send mode"
is set, and the motorized faders of the respective channel strips serve as the transmission level
control faders from the corresponding channels, and the transmission level in 308 of FIG. Control
the gain). In the “send mode”, in the display area of the meter (METER) in the area 620,
buttons for selecting one (or pair) of buses from the 16 MIX buses and the stereo bus are
displayed. By the button operation, it is possible to select a bus to be controlled for the delivery
level by the electric fader. 630 is a display of the currently called scene. The operators of the
scene operation unit 425 (FIG. 4) located below the display 630 can be used to increase or
decrease the scene number, or to recall or store scenes. Reference numeral 640 denotes a display
of the currently selected ch, where the input ch "CH1" with the name "Vocal" is selected. The
selection of the ch can be performed by the SEL switch of the ch strip, or can be performed by
buttons arranged on the left and right of the 640.
[0036]
In FIG. 6, the 8-ch strip screen of the first to eighth input channels displayed when the selection
switch 551 is turned on is described as an example, but when the other selection switches 552 to
558 and 561 to 564 are turned on. The strip screen to be displayed also has the same
10-04-2019

configuration. However, when the selection switch 557 is turned on, display for 4 channels
towards the left (600-1 to 600-4), and when the selection switch 558 is turned on, display for 2
channels towards the left (600-1 to 600-2) Will be done each. In addition, when the selection
switches 558 and 561 to 564 are turned on, the output side channels are displayed, but on those
channels, the content of the signal processing is slightly different from the input channels
described in FIG. The display of the partial areas 601 to 606 etc. of the display area for one
channel is different from that of FIG. For example, since the input source of the signals of those
chs is a bus, there is no display corresponding to the head amplifier 602, and there is neither an
INS button 603-1, nor a knob 605, an ST button nor a MONO button. As knobs for controlling
the transmission level, eight knobs 604-1 to 604-8 corresponding to the eight matrix buses 211
to which signals are output are displayed only for the stereo output ch and the MIX output ch.
[0037]
FIG. 7 shows a display example of the selection ch screen displayed on the display 423 of FIG.
The SEL switches (such as 531 in FIG. 5) of any of the channel strips in the input channel strip
units 411 to 416, the stereo input channel strip unit 417, the stereo output channel strip unit
418, and the assigned channel strip unit 424 in FIG. Then, the channel corresponding to the
channel strip is selected as the target channel for parameter operation in the parameter
operation section 422. At this time, the selected channel is displayed as a screen displaying the
detailed parameter setting state of the selected channel. The screen is displayed. The selection
channel screen of FIG. 7 shows the selection channel screen for the first channel among the input
channels. Here, although it has been described as switching to the selected channel screen by the
operation of the SEL switch, it is assumed that there is an option that enables the user to set
enable / disable of the function to switch to the selected channel screen (selection of operation
target channel Will be
[0038]
Reference numeral 701 denotes a display area of sixteen knobs 701-1 to 701-16 indicating the
level of transmission from the input channel to each of the sixteen MIX buses 206. The PRE
button and the ON button are provided on the right side of each knob. Reference numeral 702
denotes a display area of a knob that indicates the level of the gain of the head amplifier
provided in the previous stage of the input channel. Reference numerals 703 to 706 denote
partial areas for displaying the parameter setting states of the HPF 302, the PEQ 303, and the
first and second DYNAMICS 304 and 305, respectively, of the input channel described in FIG.
Necessary number of knobs are displayed in each of the partial areas 703 to 706, respectively.
10-04-2019

Reference numeral 707 denotes a knob display area that indicates a setting value of panning of
the output signal from the input channel to the stereo bus (207 in FIG. 2). In addition, a partial
area for displaying the parameter setting status for the channel is displayed as necessary. The
display on the right 620, 621, 630, 640 is similar to the strip screen of FIG. 6.
[0039]
The arrangement of the knobs displayed in the partial areas 701 to 707 (however, the partial
areas 705 and 706 are only the knob for THRESHOLD adjustment on the left side) is the
parameter operation portion on the left side of the display 423 described in FIG. The
arrangement corresponds to the arrangement of the rotary encoder 422. By operating the rotary
encoder of the parameter operation unit 422, the parameter value of the corresponding knob can
be changed. The operation is easy to understand because the arrangement corresponds.
[0040]
Buttons are provided as necessary in each partial area of the selection ch screen. For example,
the rectangles described as ST and MONO in the area 707 indicate the ST button and the MONO
button. Touch the ST button to turn on / off the signal output from the input channel to the L and
R buses of the stereo bus 207. Touch the MONO button to turn on the signal output to the C bus.
/ Can be turned off.
[0041]
Although FIG. 7 has been described by way of example of the selection ch screen of the first
input channel, the selection ch screens of other channels have the same configuration. However,
depending on the configuration of ch, the display of the partial areas 701 to 707 may be
different from FIG.
[0042]
Here, the switching of the screen by the push operation event of the rotary encoder of the
assignment channel strip unit 424 and the parameter operation unit 422 will be described. When
10-04-2019
16
any of the above rotary encoders is pressed, if the strip screen is currently displayed, it will be
displayed last on the selected channel screen (the one being retracted), if it is currently displayed,
if it is currently displayed. Switch to the group screen (saved). Thereby, the screen can be easily
switched in a state where the hand is put on the rotary encoder. For example, although it is
usually operated on a group screen, it is convenient to use a screen switching function by a push
operation event of a rotary encoder when it is desired to confirm or correct only a predetermined
parameter of a certain channel. Even if the screen is switched, the functions of the operators of
the assignment ch strip unit 424 and the parameter operation unit 422 do not change.
Therefore, after pushing the rotary encoder of the parameter operation unit 422 and confirming
the parameters which can be changed by the rotary encoder on the selection channel screen, the
rotary encoder is pushed again to form the group screen again. Fine adjustments can be made.
[0043]
Both the strip screen of FIG. 6 and the selection ch screen of FIG. 7 can perform button on / off
operation and knob selection by touching a button or knob on the screen. However, the
parameter value indicated by the knob can not be changed by an operation of touching the
screen, and is performed using a rotary encoder provided on the panel. Therefore, the parameter
value of the knob does not change by touching the screen by mistake. Note that when operating
the controls of the strip screen, selected channel screen, and each operation unit, the value of the
corresponding parameter stored in the current memory is changed, and as a result, the changed
parameter value is turned on / off for each button. It is reflected in the off state and the setting
value of each knob. The strip screen shown in FIG. 6 and the selection ch screen shown in FIG. 7
are screens that form the basis of the operation, and are thus collectively called a base screen.
[0044]
In order to make it easy to understand the correspondence between the parameter operation unit
422 and the selected channel screen and the correspondence between the assigned channel strip
unit 424 and the group screen, the first background color of the parameter operation unit 422
and the background color of the selected channel screen It is preferable that the background
color of the assignment ch strip unit 424 and the background color of the group screen be a
second similar color different from the first similar color. This makes it possible at a glance to see
at a glance whether the currently displayed screen is the group screen or the selected channel
screen, and it is possible to easily grasp which of the parameter operation unit and the assigned
channel strip unit should be operated. Furthermore, the color of the knob of the rotary encoder
may correspond to the on-screen knob display.

Next, the downward triangle and the double downward triangle displayed in each partial area of
the strip screen of FIG. 6 will be described. These downward triangles or double downward
triangles indicate the role of the button for selecting the parameter displayed in the partial
region, except for the partial region (except for the portion explicitly becoming the button). It is a
display showing that it is an area to be played. The area of the downward triangle indicates that
the parameter is a "type 1 parameter", and the area of the double downward triangle indicates
that the parameter is a "type 2 parameter". When the first type parameter is selected (that is,
when an area other than the button in the partial area where the first type parameter is displayed
(the partial area of the downward triangle) is touched), the details related to the parameter An 8ch parameter window (hereinafter referred to as an 8-ch window) for setting is displayed. When
a type 2 parameter not selected is selected (that is, when an area other than the button in the
partial area in which the type 2 parameter is displayed (a partial area of double downward
triangle marks) is touched), The second type parameter selected and operated this time is in the
selected state. When the type 2 parameter in the selected state is selected again, an 8-ch window
for displaying detailed settings related to the parameter is displayed. For example, since the areas
where the knobs 604-1 to 604-16 in FIG. 6 are displayed are areas of double downward triangle
marks, parameters of the respective knobs displayed here (send level to each MIX bus) ) Is a type
2 parameter. Therefore, if you touch a knob that is not in the selected state (even if you touch the
background part around that knob, it is assumed that the closest knob is touched), the 8ch ring
moves and the touch position is Eight knobs are selected. When the knob in the selected state is
touched again, an 8-ch window is displayed. The type 1 parameter of the downward triangle is
assumed to be one with relatively low frequency of use, and the type 2 parameter of the double
downward triangle is assumed to be relatively high frequency of use. Although switching of
parameters is troublesome because the first type parameters have to be changed in the
parameter window, there is no problem because the frequency of use is low. The second type
parameter can be set and changed by switching the selected state on the base screen without
opening the parameter window.
[0046]
In FIG. 8, on the 8-ch strip screen of FIG. 6, the first dynamics (first-type parameter) 603-3 (802
of FIG. 8) of the display 600-4 in the fourth column is selected, and an 8-ch window 801 is
displayed. Show the situation. There are multiple types of 8ch windows. In accordance with the
selected first type or second type parameter, an 8-ch window to be displayed is determined. FIG.
10-04-2019

10A shows an 8-ch window of DYNAMICS1. FIG. 10B shows an 8-ch window displayed when the
partial area 603-1 or 603-2 of any of the channels in FIG. 6 is touched. FIG. 11 shows an 8-ch
window displayed by selecting one of the knobs 604-1 to 604-16 indicating the transmission
level from each ch to each MIX bus.
[0047]
The same applies to downward triangles displayed in each partial area of the selection channel
screen of FIG. However, while the parameter window displayed from the 8ch strip screen in FIG.
6 is an 8ch window, the parameter window displayed from the selected ch screen is a 1ch
window (1ch parameter window). The 1ch window is a window for performing more detailed
setting of the parameter related to the selected channel, and there are a plurality of types
according to the selected parameter. For example, FIG. 9A shows a 1ch window displayed when
the partial area 705 of DYNAMICS 1 in FIG. 7 is touched. (A downward triangle indicating that
the partial area 705 is the first type parameter is displayed, so that if one touch anywhere in this
partial area 705, the 1ch window of FIG. 9A is displayed. 9B shows a 1ch window displayed when
the partial area 703 or 704 is touched on the selected ch screen of FIG. When one of the knobs is
selected in the partial area 701 of the knobs 701-1 to 701-16 indicating the output level to each
MIX bus (or MATRIX bus) of the selection channel screen of FIG. 7, that MIX bus (or It is
assumed that an 8-ch window (FIG. 11) indicating the transmission level to the MATRIX bus is
displayed. There is no detailed parameter for creating a 1ch window for this sending level, so an
8ch window is used.
[0048]
The details of each parameter window will be described with reference to FIGS. 9 to 13.
[0049]
FIG. 9A is a display example of the 1ch window 900 of the first dynamics (DYNAMICS 1 of FIG.
3).
A heading 901 indicates that this 1ch window is for performing detailed parameter settings
related to DYNAMICS 1, 902 is a button for closing this window, 905 is a default button, 906 is a
1ch button, 907 is an 8ch button, 908 is ALL It is a button. 911 is a display of a ch number and a
ch name (which the user can arbitrarily attach) indicating which ch this 1ch window is a window
10-04-2019
19
for, and 912 is a display of an icon selected simultaneously when the ch name is attached ( Not
shown). A button 913 is used to set on / off of DYNAMICS 1 in this channel. When the button
913 is turned on, DYNAMICS 1 functions effectively in the signal processing flow described in
FIG. When turned off, DYNAMICS 1 only passes through the signal. Reference numerals 914-1 to
914-8, 915, 916, and the like denote buttons, knobs, and the like for performing detailed
parameter settings of DYNAMICS 1. In particular, knobs 914-1 to 914-8 indicate parameters that
can be operated by encoders 536-1 to 536-8 at the bottom of the screen.
[0050]
When only the base screen (FIGS. 6 and 7) is displayed and the parameter window is not
displayed superimposed on it, the encoders 536-1 to 536-8 have 8-ch rings in the 8-ch strip
screen (FIG. 6). These encoders 536-1 to 536-8 are assigned to the operators that set the
parameters of the selected state that have been set, but when the parameter windows shown in
FIG. 9 to FIG. 13 are displayed, It is assumed that switching is made to an operator for setting a
predetermined parameter in the parameter window. When the parameter window is closed, the
assignments of the encoders 536-1 to 536-8 are restored.
[0051]
By touching and turning on the default button 905, the parameters of DYNAMICS 1 of this ch can
be set to default values. The 1ch button 906 is grayed out and can not be operated. When the
8ch button 907 is touched, the screen is shifted to an 8ch window (FIG. 10A described later)
regarding the dynamics 1 including the ch. When the ALL button 908 is touched, the transition
to an all-ch window (FIG. 12A described later) related to the dynamics 1 is made.
[0052]
FIG. 9B shows a display example of the 1 channel window 930 related to HPF and EQ (ATT, HPF
and EQ in FIG. 3). Elements 931 to 938 in the lower part of the screen correspond to the
elements 901 to 908 in FIG. 9A, and their roles and functions are similar. The screen is shifted to
FIG. 10 (b) by the 8ch button 937, and is shifted to FIG. 12 (b) by the ALL button 938. Elements
941 to 943 are also similar to the elements 911 to 913 in FIG. Reference numerals 944-1 to
944-8, 945, and 946 are buttons and knobs for performing detailed parameter setting of ATT,
HPF, and EQ. The knobs 944-1 to 944-8 are encoders 536 at the bottom of the screen. It
10-04-2019
20
becomes a parameter that can be operated at -1 to 536-8.
[0053]
FIG. 10A is a display example of the 8-ch window 801 of DYNAMICS 1. The heading display
1001, the close button 1002, the 1ch button 1006, the 8ch button 1007, and the ALL button
1008 are the same as those in a 1ch window. Since the window 801 is an 8-ch window, the 8-ch
button 1007 can not be operated in gray out, and the 1 ch button 1006 is used to shift to FIG. 9
(a), and the ALL button 1008 is shifted to FIG. 12 (a) .
[0054]
1010-1 to 1010-8 are displays corresponding to the 8 ch displayed on the original 8 ch strip
screen in order. The display of one ch, for example, 1010-1, is a display 1011 of the icon and ch
name of the ch, displays 1012 and 1013 such as a graph indicating the setting status of the
parameter, a knob 1014 representing a representative parameter, and an on / off button It
consists of 1015. The representative parameter is a parameter representative of the function
among a plurality of parameters required to realize one of the signal processing elements
(functions) shown in FIG. For example, in DYNAMICS 1, THRESHOLD is a representative
parameter. In the 8-ch window, representative parameters of each ch can be displayed and
operated by corresponding encoders 536-1 to 536-8 in order. The on / off button 1015 is a
button for specifying validity / invalidity of the function specified by the heading 1001 in the
corresponding channel, and is the same as the button 913 in FIG. 9A.
[0055]
A cursor 1020 can be set to an arbitrary ch by touching any of the displayed eight ch areas
1010-1 to 1010-8. Copy the DYNAMICS1 parameters of the ch for which the cursor 1020 is set
with the copy button 1003 and set the cursor 1020 to another ch and touch the paste button
1004 to paste the copied DYNAMICS1 parameters to that ch . By the default button 1005, the
parameter of DYNAMICS 1 of the ch for which the cursor 1020 is set can be returned to the
default value.

FIG. 10B is a display example of an ATT / HPF / EQ 8-ch window 1030. Elements 1031 to 1038
in the lower part of the screen correspond to the elements 1001 to 1008 in FIG. 10A, and their
roles and functions are similar. The screen is shifted to FIG. 9 (b) by the 1ch button 1037, and is
shifted to FIG. 12 (b) by the ALL button 1038. The displays 1040-1 to 1040-8 corresponding to
the 8 ch displayed on the original 8 ch strip screen and the cursor 1050 are also the same as in
FIG. Among the elements for each channel, 1041 is a display of icons and ch names, and 1042 to
1046 are buttons and knobs for performing detailed parameter settings of ATT / HPF / EQ. Since
the 8-ch window 1030 is a collection of signal processing elements, a button 1044 for turning on
/ off the HPF and a button 1046 for turning on / off the EQ are provided independently. In ATT /
HPF / EQ, the representative parameter is EQ1045.
[0057]
In this window 1030, both the knob 1042 corresponding to the level of the ATT of each channel
and the knob 1043 corresponding to the frequency of the HPF are displayed. Therefore, selecting
the knob 1042 for any channel selects the same knob for each channel 1042 is displayed with
increased brightness (in this case, the knob 1043 is grayed out) so that it can be operated by the
encoders 536-1 to 536-8 while selecting the knob 1043 of any of the channels is the same for
each channel The knob 1043 is displayed with increased brightness (at this time, the knob 1042
is grayed out) and can be operated by the encoders 536-1 to 536-8.
[0058]
FIG. 11 is a display example of an 8-ch window 1100 of MIX 4 SEND (transmission level to MIX
bus 4).
Since this is the level of transmission to the MIX bus 4, the window is opened when the knob
604-4 of any of the channels in FIG. 6 is touched again in the selected state. Elements 1101 to
1108 in the lower part of the screen correspond to the elements 1001 to 1008 in FIG. 10A, and
their roles and functions are similar. The screen is shifted to FIG. 13 by the ALL button 1108. As
for the level to be sent to the MIX bus, there is no parameter sufficient to display in detail in a
1ch window, so there is no corresponding 1ch window. Therefore, the 8ch button 1107 and the
1ch button 1106 are grayed out. The displays 1110-1 to 1110-8 corresponding to 8ch displayed
on the original 8ch strip screen and the cursor are also the same as those in FIG. Elements 1111
to 1114 for each ch are also similar to the elements 1011 to 1015 in FIG. The on / off button
1113 can switch on / off of signal transmission from that channel to the MIX bus 4. The delivery
10-04-2019
22
level indicated by the knob 1114 can be manipulated by the encoders 536-1 to 536-8. The
representative parameter is a numerical display of the delivery level.
[0059]
FIGS. 12 (a) and 12 (b) and FIG. 13 show the all_ch window in the parameter window. These can
not be opened directly from the base screen, but are opened by touching the ALL button of the
1ch or 8ch window.
[0060]
FIG. 12A shows a display example of the all_ch window 1200 regarding DYNAMICS1. The icon
1212 for each of the 1st to 48th channels, the channel name 1211 (or the channel number may
be displayed simultaneously), and the graph display 1213 (which may be displayed as a
numerical value) of the representative parameters of DYNAMICS 1 are displayed. . By touching
an arbitrary ch portion, the cursor 1220 is set to that ch.
[0061]
In the lower part of the window, parameter name display 1201, close button 1202, copy button
1203, paste button 1204, default button 1205, 1ch button 1206, 8ch button 1207, and ALL
button 1208 (grayed out, disabled Is displayed. The parameters of any channel DYNAMICS 1 can
be copied and pasted to another channel by the cursor 1220, the copy button 1203 and the
paste button 1204, as in the case of an 8-channel window. It is also similar to the 8-ch window
that the parameters of DYNAMICS 1 of any ch can be returned to the default state by the default
button 1205. Further, transition to a 1ch window or an 8ch window by the 1ch button 1206 and
the 8ch button 1207 is also similar to other parameter windows.
[0062]
FIG. 12B shows a display example of the all_ch window 1230 related to ATT / HPF / EQ. The
icon 1242 of each of the first to forty-eighth channels, the channel name 1241, and the graph
display 1243 of the representative parameters are the same as in FIG. 12A. Here, the setting
10-04-2019
23
state of the EQ is displayed as a graph as a representative parameter. Elements 1231 to 1238 in
the lower part of the screen correspond to the elements 1201 to 1208 in FIG. 12A, and their
roles and functions are similar.
[0063]
FIG. 13 shows a display example of the all_ch window 1300 related to MIX4SEND (transmission
level to MIX bus 4). The icon 1312 of each of the first to forty-eighth channels, the channel name
1311 and the display 1313 of the representative parameter are the same as those in FIGS. 12 (a)
and 12 (b). Here, the transmission level from the channel to the MIX bus 4 is displayed
numerically as a representative parameter. In addition, the PRE button is displayed. Elements
1301 to 1308 in the lower part of the screen correspond to the elements 1201 to 1208 in FIG.
12A, and their roles and functions are similar.
[0064]
As described above, with regard to the same parameter, it is possible to mutually switch between
the 1ch window, the 8ch window, and the all_ch window using the 1ch button, the 8ch button,
and the ALL button. Furthermore, when the cursor to which the cursor is set is touched again in
the all_ch window, transition to the corresponding 8ch window is made. Touch again the channel
where the cursor is set in the 8ch window to shift to the corresponding 1ch window.
[0065]
In 1ch window, detailed parameters can be referenced and set for 1ch. In an 8-ch window,
representative parameters for 8 ch can be referenced and set in parallel. In the all_ch window,
representative parameters of all channels can be referenced. Also, for example, in the case of
DYNAMICS 1, its parameters can be copied and pasted between arbitrary channels. In 1ch
window and 8ch window, it is possible to specify ON / OFF of the signal processing element
function of each channel. Although the encoders 536-1 to 536-8 are not effective in the all_ch
window, for example, even if the designated one line of 8 ch can be changed by the encoders
536-1 to 536-8, the representative parameters can be changed. Good.

FIG. 14 is a flowchart of touch screen processing on the 8-ch strip screen (FIG. 6). This process is
activated when an arbitrary position on the 8-ch strip screen is touch-operated. In step 1401, it is
determined whether the area operated is a first type parameter, a second type parameter, or
another area. (In the case where the button is operated, it is assumed that the process
corresponding to the operation of the button is performed and the process ends, but it is omitted
in FIG. 14. In the case of the first type parameter, the 8-ch ring is erased in step 1402, and an 8ch window is displayed in step 1403 using the parameter that has been touch-operated as a
representative parameter. If it is the second type parameter that has been touched, it is
determined in step 1404 whether the parameter is in a selected state. If it is not in the selected
state, the 8-ch ring is moved in step 1405. This is processing for moving the 8-ch ring from the
parameter in which the 8-ch ring was displayed before to the selected state to the position of the
parameter touched this time. Next, in step 1406, the parameter that has been touch-operated is
put in the selected state (parameters that were previously in the selected state are in the nonselected state). If the parameter touched in step 1404 is in the selected state, the 8-ch ring is
erased in step 1407, and an 8-ch window is displayed with the parameter touched in step 1408
as a representative parameter. If it is determined in step 1401 that the touch operation is
performed on another area, the 8-ch ring is erased in step 1409, and a parameter window
corresponding to the area is displayed in step 1410.

FIG. 15A is a flowchart of the 8-ch encoder process. This process is a process executed when any
one of the eight operators (encoders) 536-1 to 536-8 on the lower side of the display screen is
operated. In step 1501, it is determined whether the parameter window is currently displayed. If
the parameter window is not open, in step 1502, the value of the parameter in the currently
selected state of the ch corresponding to the operated encoder is changed according to the
operation of the encoder. Next, in step 1503, it is determined whether the parameter is being
displayed, and if so, the display is updated in step 1504, and the process is ended. If it is not
displayed, the process ends. If the parameter window is displayed in step 1501, the value of the
parameter corresponding to the encoder in the window is changed in step 1505 according to the
operation of the encoder. Next, in step 1506, the display is updated and the process ends.

FIG. 15B is a flowchart of the selection ch encoder process. This process is executed when any

operation element (encoder) in the parameter operation section 422 (FIG. 5 (a)) on the left side of
the screen is operated while the selected channel screen (FIG. 7) is displayed. Processing. At step
1511, the value of the parameter corresponding to the encoder of the currently selected ch is
changed according to the operation of the encoder. Next, in step 1512, if the parameter is being
displayed, the display is updated in step 1513 and the process ends. If it is not displayed, the
process ends.

FIG. 16 is a flowchart of the touch screen process on the selected channel screen. This process is
a process executed when an arbitrary position in the screen is touched on the selection channel
screen (FIG. 7). In step 1601, the area touched is determined. If it is an on / off button, the on /
off of the parameter of the selected channel is reversed in step 1602, the display is updated in
step 1603, and the process is ended. If it is the AUX parameter (knob of the partial area 701)
that has been touch-operated, an 8-ch window (FIG. 11) with the parameter as a representative
parameter is displayed in step 1604, and the process ends. If the touch-operated area is a
parameter area other than AUX, in step 1605, a 1ch window with the parameter as a
representative parameter is displayed, and the process ends. If it is the other area that has been
touched, the parameter window corresponding to the area is displayed in step 1606 and the
process ends.
[0070]
FIG. 17 is a flowchart of touch screen processing in an 8-ch window (FIGS. 10 and 11). This
process is executed when a touch operation is performed in the 8-ch window. Here, the
processing for moving the cursor, and the processing by the copy button, the paste button, and
the default button are omitted. First, in step 1701, the operated area is determined. If it is the on
/ off button, the on / off of the parameter corresponding to the operated button is reversed in
step 1702, the display is updated in step 1703, and the process is ended. If it is determined that
the touch operation is performed on the 1ch button, a 1ch window having the parameter as a
representative parameter is displayed in step 1704 (the 8ch window is erased), and the process
is ended. If it is the ALL button that the touch operation has been performed, an all_ch window
with the parameter as a representative parameter is displayed in step 1705, and the process
ends. If the touch operation is the close button, the window is closed in step 1706, and it is
determined in step 1707 whether the base screen is an 8-ch strip screen. If so, the 8ch ring is
restored in step 1708 and the process ends. If the base screen is the selection ch screen, the
process ends as it is.

The same applies to touch screen processing in a 1ch window or an all_ch window.
[0072]
In the 8-ch strip screen, when one touch of the second type parameter is selected, the parameter
is selected, and the parameter window is opened by two touches.
For example, if you touch without pressing the shift key, the parameter window will open
regardless of whether it is the first type parameter or the second type parameter, and if you
touch while pressing the shift key, that parameter will only change if it is the second type
parameter. It may be in a selected state.
[0073]
Although eight channels are handled as one unit in the above embodiment, the present invention
is not limited to eight channels. In the parameter window, ATT / HPF / EQ are grouped but may
be divided.
[0074]
When the representative parameter selection operation is performed, the window corresponding
to the open screen (selected ch screen, kch (8 ch) strip screen) may not necessarily be opened.
For example, it may be determined in advance which of the 1ch window and the kch (8ch)
window to open for each selection parameter, or in three windows of 1ch window, kch (8ch)
window, and all ch windows. An operator may be provided to switch to another window, and the
operator may freely switch between the windows.
[0075]
In the above embodiment, a downward triangle indicating that the parameter is the first type and
a double downward triangle indicating that the parameter is the second type are displayed in

each partial area of the strip screen in FIG. Although these displays have been described, the
present invention is not limited to the display with triangles, and other forms of display may be
adopted as appropriate, and the display with triangles or the like may be omitted to obtain the
first type parameters and the second type It may be displayed without distinction from the
parameters of.
