In some DAWs, you may find that you are unable to control tracks at the end of your mixer.
Or, if you have a small session with only a few tracks, you may experience that you cannot access tracks using the CHANNEL encoder, until you've added a certain amount.
Ableton Live users in particular may be unable to access Return tracks.
The reason for this is that UF1, by default, is set to look at the 1st track within a bank of 8 tracks. This is indicated by the ‘1’ in the top corner of the small display.
How do I work around this?
Option 1: Add some extra ‘dummy’ tracks to the end of the session to enable you to access all your tracks from UF1. Probably the easiest way to work around the problem.
Option 2: You can press the CHANNEL encoder and choose FADER SEL from the options. When FADER SEL mode is chosen, use the CHANNEL encoder to change the track within the controller bank UF1 is looking at – you will see the number in the top corner of the small display change to reflect this ‘1’, ‘2’, ‘3’, ‘4’, ‘5’, ‘6’, ‘7’, ‘8’ etc. UF1 will now control the chosen track within the bank, based on the number you picked. Once you have adjusted the track in question, you may wish to return the UF1 fader to controlling the 1st channel within the bank and then return the CHANNEL encoder to its default function of banking channels one at a time by choosing ‘< >’ mode.
Will this change in the future?
We are looking at ways we can improve this aspect of functionality in SSL 360° v1.6.
