UC DCA group mutes indicator doesnt unselect when one or more channels in the group is unselected. Selecting the DCA group mute then "Unmutes" all channels which may not be desirable, requiring a second punch to mute all of the group channels. I think a better option would be to have the DCA group mute indicator "unselect" once one or more channels in the group have been unmuted. Then if the DCA group mute button is selected, all channels in the group will be muted. If no individual channels in the group have been unmuted the group mute button would then unmuted all channels in the DCA group.

Clear as mud?

UC 1.8.3, RM32ai at current rev.  Used in musical theater application where talent may enter/leave during a scene.

Totally clear... ;-) And this might be an answer: Do not use DCA groups, but use subgroups! Any of your 16 auxes can be switched to serve as subgroup (single or as stereo pair) for any input channel, all four fx returns and the two digital inputs - in any combination you need. Subgroups allow you to mute or unmute channels and are a lot easier to use for changes.

Hope this helps.
