No, if you’d have all faders down, preview always go to layer A, even if you are working on layer B and cueing B.
To me, it should have stayed the way it was: if you’re working on layer B, give me preview on layer B. And when that fader or layer is active, it should prompt me “please lower fader down”.
Normally all goes well, because you’d probably play on the opposite layer anyway. However, using 2 players with 2 layers, one unit might be completely off-air and this “handy feature” becomes annoying.
I think the thought process of “auto layer preview” had to do with the LC6000, but having one of those for 10 months now, I still cannot grasp the reason why. I know where I want to preview a track and cue that channel accordingly.
I agree, but If you expect preview on layer B, because you’re searching for a nice track to play on that layer B / channel next, why should you need to change cue to layer A for preview first and then switch cue to layer B after loading that previewed track… it doesn’t make sense.
