if i do do a XML map ill post it to you with all the Macros / isis settings etc
Hi Rob, did you ever heard of adhesive mini sticks?
Only joking of coarse, as I do understand your problem. I myself have used most of the hard labeled functions on Isis to other functions than the ones labelled. In fact, where I have more problems recap the assignments are the numbers on the top. The extension fader also shows some problems when switching layers, eg. fader 39 is the seventh of fifth layer(humm, is it?
Anyway, like you´ve said, for it´s cost, is a very good controller. I just feel that in some way, Merging has forgotten about it, as the promised V2 of Isis soft functions improvements is on hold for quite some time now. I guess that the launch Edit Bay overshadowed it big style, but the fact that you can´t use it on it´s own without the Ramsés makes it useless for people that already have consoles or do not have the cash to buy a Ramsés. Anyway I find the Edit Bay a bit cumbersome, I guess is the price you pay when using third party hardware designs that were meant for other duties. (nothing against Smart AV obviously)
Things that could be improved on the Isis, is to put the lcd screen space to ggod use, as most space is wasted displaying timecode in the center. We can see the transport in Pyramix in a lot of places within the apps menus. That space could be used for adding two more sets of soft keys(with labelling) that could work by pressing Shift and the soft key itself. That would allow for 22 function assignments per lcd page.
