BLU-8 Single Mode
The Soundweb London BLU-8 programmable zone controller is a single, four or eight zone Ethernet wall controller with a simple, yet powerful, interface. In this guide we will focus on the Single Mode of operation.
Single Mode is intended for control and monitoring of parameters and recalling Presets in a single zone. You can also think of this as a single page or panel of controls, each with a single function. In this mode the controls have the following capabilities:
Source Selector input selection
Any writable control parameter
Buttons 1 to 4:
Any writable Boolean control parameter, such as a Mute,
Any Parameter Preset or Venue Preset
Any control parameter
In this application each BLU-8 is located in a separate space giving the operator control over parameters for that space. The left encoder on the BLU-8 allows the operator to select the background music from a choice of 4 Music sources.
The right encoder adjusts the overall gain in the space. The LED meter to the right changes to a positional meter when the gain is adjusted indicating the relative position of the control.
When the Gain control is not being gestured, the LED meter becomes a VU meter indicating the current level for that zone. This VU meter can be fully customized in the number of steps and indicator color allowing the programmer to tailor the display to the application and end user.
The 4 buttons have been programmed to recall EQ presets for the space allowing the user to adjust the sound to their own preference.
The sleep mode has been programmed to dim all the LEDís so the panel is less distracting when it is not in use. To wake the BLU-8, simply press the Locate button or gesture any control. The BLU-8 will wait 2 seconds after wake up before it changes any state variable, so the user can gesture any control to wake that panel up and then wait 2 seconds before changing any control.
