User Deﬁ ned Keys.
There are 25 user deﬁ ned keys on the PM5D panel; 24 in a block and one above the DCA fader section. There are four
banks of keys (ABCD) available. The keys are all programmable to a variety of user chosen tasks; the most common
are "Bookmarks" or short-cuts to screens, "Next or Last Scene" and "tap tempo" for delay type effects sends. The
"Examples" engineer uses "Layer Snapshot" User Keys for each of his main artists to access their monitor mixes really
rapidly. This programming can be done in the PM5DV2 Editor. The keys can be programmed in the Editor but they
cannot be operated from it, even when on-line.
Press a UDK image to open the Parameter window and
choose a UDK function just as you would on the PM5D
The UDK's in "PM5D Editor Control" can be used to call
up screens on the editor when it is connected to the PM5D
on-line. They are like bookmarks for the on-line editor.
When you have programmed your UDKs make a note of
your choices on paper because you will need to label the
PM5D panel with tape and pen when you load your ﬁ le.
There is no electronic naming for the UDK section.
Assignable / DCA faders.
The eight assignable faders are multi functioning; they are either DCA masters or assignable to any user deﬁ ned fader
function. There are 6 user assigned banks and the dedicated DCA bank. Programming of the assignable faders can be
done in the Editor.
PM5D / PM5D-RH Quick Start Guide Part 3
To begin programming the UDKs open the User Deﬁ ned
Keys Setup window. It's accessed through Utilities in the
Windows drop-down list.
Click on one of the channels in one of the letter banks
and the menu of all channels will open. The menu is
very large because it is possible to select channels from
a PM5D with two DSP5Ds attached system, but for a
simple PM5D only setup, use the channels without #key
numbers. Use the [STAY] choice to ﬁ x the fader as it was
last assigned or [----] to disable the fader.
