      Hi guys,

      wondering if I am too stupid to find the feature but I would like to be able to ADD/REMOVE/DUPLICATE active FX Chains via EMOTE. Haven’t found the functions yet to do so in the UI so currently doing this via the screen of my unit.

      In case it is really not in there. it would be great to call up those operations either from the “FX Chain” menu on the top bar or by RMB on the main FX Chain frame

      Thx

      John

      Adding/removing FX Chains can be done by dragging and dropping them from the browser window – https://cdn.eventideaudio.com/manuals/h9000/content/emote/overview.html#adding-and-removing-fx-chains

      If you control+click and FX Chain preset in the browser list, you will see the option to duplicate it.

      Thanks for pointing me to it. Nevertheless please don‘t think that I was too lazy to look it up. Searching the user guide I just did not find what I was looking for, crazy as this may sound. The guide to me is somehow putting things in perspective of a user looking at the UI. To me it would be more natural to describe the individual elements like sessions, chains and algos and to answer the question how to make them work within whatever UI elements are needed to make it work. YMMV. As I am in the software industrie myself I do appreciate things being discoverable and to me checking RMB on UI elements like FX Chains would feel more natural as a user, since this is how 95% of standard software works. Again thanks for taking time to respond

      Cheers

      Tom

      Thanks for the input. We’re happy to hear of ways that the user manual can be improved. We recently added some GIFs to the VSIG section of the manual: https://cdn.eventideaudio.com/manuals/h9000/content/development/vsig3.html

      I’ll make a note to show some of the drag and drop features for adding/removing algorithms and FX Chains etc. by adding a few more GIFs throughout the manual.

      Maybe I should have been more precise: I was struggling to find the chapter first as there seems to be an issue with my html installation of the guide. Searching for “adding fx chains” would deliver no result so I was basically trying to find my way somehow.

      I think what makes the guide a bit hard to navigate for me personally is the different perspective you and I obviously look at it. You are trying to explain the UI and its functionalities and as adding a FX Chain is a subset of the Browser window functionality you explain it there. Since as a new user I may have no concept that the Browser window is the enabler, I would be most likely searching for a chapert called “FX Chains”, hoping to find an explanation on how to use whatever function or UI is necessary to make it happen. Basically printed guides ie for cars are done that way and I feel it is very effective if you just need to find things quick. Again, YMMV

      Cheers

      Hi John,

      Thanks for the feedback. I’ve been considering one last major reorganization of the manual. It’ll happen sometime next year.

      Cheers,

      John

      Homer, much of the H9000 functionality is either click and drag or drag and drop. Take a little time to poke around with Emote. It’s laid out pretty logically (especially since the last update). If your firmware and emote are not yet up to date, I highly recommend doing so.
