Cuelist Buttons

Cue list buttons are used to load a whole cue by pressing one button.
It loads all the sequence with all there optional settings and speed direct into cue.
This makes it possible to make a complete scene consisting of many, up to 20, small sequences that can be loaded just by one button press.
Compared to the use of Sub Master then Sub master gives the freedom to shift one sequence at the time in the Cue list where Cue list makes it possible to build a complete scene fix it and the just load it.
See Cue - Sequence relation

This can be handy in many cases and one could be a DJ that has to control music and light at the same time.
Compared to Sub master the DJ just has to press one Cue list button and the light is set. There is no selection of colors, intensity, shutter or movements as in Sub masters.

Cue list Buttons can of course be used together with Sub Masters but it can be a bit complex to operate this and still keep an overview.
The recommendation here will be to create the sequences, group them in cues and load the groups in Sub Masters.
Then create Cues for “Cue List Buttons” by using Sub Masters to load the single sequences into the cue and then saving the cue list.
This way the order of the sequences in the cue are kept and a color sequence will overwrite a movement sequence when it is loaded with the Sub Master.

It will this way be possible load a complete scene and then with Sub Master modify it.

It is possible to have 6 tabs with 16 buttons on each which gives a total of 96 buttons.
