Removable/Transferrable Settings and Scenes backup/restore function for Series III

asked Jun 23, 2017 in StudioLive Series Feature Requests by Nirrad85 (2,020 points)
So I got my mixer, and finally figured out after a week or two that the SD card slot wasn't working properly, as it never successfully completed a Speed test on any card that I of which being formatted according to the specifications on PreSonus' site, and the card itself was their number one recommended card to use with the StudioLive desks.  Sweetwater was great in getting a new one shipped to me over night.  

This is a perfect situation where that backup/transfer feature would be really nice PreSonus!  Everything else worked good on my board but the card reader, and with the first try, the new board gave me a completed speed test -- But I've been using the original board all this time and have scenes set up for different uses already...Now I have to manually transfer all of my settings because of this feature I'm officially making this request:

Whether it be firmware on the board to backup to the SD card, or some how back settings up through UC, we need this option to make life a little easier!  PreSonus please come up with a way to back up settings and scenes on removable/transferrable media so I move from board to board.

And Btw...when is the DAW control coming so I can use it as a control surface?

Edit: If there is a quick, easy way to transfer settings, I'm all ears!  Somebody tell me.

The ability to save and load scenes is already part of UC.  The steps are documented in the StudioLive AI Software Reference Manual available for download in your account page.  Look for "Preset and Scene Management" in the PDF.  The PDF is a bit different than the most-recent UC, but it should be enough to help.

Hey thanks for the reply michaelalandawson, but that's for the Studio AI models...I'm talking about the Series III.  There is no save function on iPad Mac or PC within that software for the Series III mixers. sad

Don't judge the PDF by its cover.  Take a closer look at that PDF.  Specifically, look at sections 1.1 and 1.2.

I own a StudioLive Series III 16ch mixer.  I have used UC to successfully transfer scenes to/from a computer.

The only thing I can't confirm is the ability to backup/restore global settings such as backlight brightness, etc.  I haven't tried it.
