Here is a list of functions that are not mirrored, but will need to be
edited on each console separately if necessary. Or...set them up on
one console and transfer them to the other console via memory card or
• LOAD/SAVE to Memory Card (in [DATA] menu)
• Some [SETUP] functions in the PREFER2 and PREFER3 menus:
• MIDI/HOST settings in [SETUP] menu
• INPUT PORT NAME, OUTPUT PORT NAME, TIME REF, TIME
SEG settings in [SETUP] menu
• CH STATUS and LOCK functions in [UTILITY] menu
• CH NAME settings in INPUT PATCH and OUTPUT PATCH menus
• MIDI SETUP, Program Change Table, Control Change Table,
BULK DUMP settings in the [MIDI] menu
• PLUG INS in the [EFFECTS/PLUGINS] menu
• SCENE MEMORY SORT and PASTE functions
• AUTOMIX functions
• USER DEFINED KEY assignments (though BANK SELECT is
• LOCATOR functions
• MIX C-R SOURCES and MIX MONITOR SOURCES functions in
the [MONITOR] menu.
• ENCODER MODE / FADER MODE / AUX SELECT / MATRIX
• Currently displayed menu.
And of course with DM2000, remember that the analog input GAIN,
+48V, PAD, INSERT of channels 1-24 need to be set individually on
each console, and there is no way to copy these with a memory card or
with Studio Manager: they must be set manually.
Why not use the CASCADE function?
In this case, the CASCADE function should not be used. CASCADE
links the output buses of both consoles together, and can link display
pages, ENCODER MODE and FADER MODE and so on, but it does
not mirror the mixing parameters. Instead, it makes both consoles
work like one big console with twice the number of input channels, but
no extra output channels.
