Set parameter change behavior for screen controls
You can set the behavior for saving parameter values for screen controls in individual patches. This is useful, for example, when the default for saving parameter values is set to Reset, but you want certain screen controls (for example, concert- and set-level screen controls) to keep their current value when switching patches.
Set the behavior for saving parameter values in a patch
Select the patch.
Select the screen control for which you want to set the parameter change behavior.
In the Attributes tab of the Screen Control Inspector, choose the parameter change behavior for the screen control from the “When a patch is changed and screen value differs from saved patch” pop-up menu:
To have the screen control use the default behavior set in MainStage preferences: Choose Preference.
To preserve changes to parameter values when you change patches: Choose Keep.
To return values to the last saved value: Choose Reset. When this value is chosen, you should save the concert after making any changes you wish to keep to the patch, before selecting another patch.
To have the screen control use the last received value from the physical control assigned to it: Choose Match.
When you choose an item from the pop-up menu, a brief description of its function appears below the menu.
Important: If you set the behavior for saving parameter values in a patch to Reset, parameter values are also reset when you switch to Layout mode.
