Need offline editing capabiity to remotely plan and setup a Series III mixing console.  Punching in one letter at a time is unsatisfactory.  Takes too much time, especially with a 64S board.  Too tedious.  Isn't conducive to doing show planning away from the board.  Need to be able to save a Project/Scene(s) file(s) to a portable medium and then transport the contents to the console.  Could be via PC using UC Surface.

The was originally posted here:  https://answers.presonus.com/30446/offline-editor-for-studiolive.  But that wasn't in the feature request section.

This Series III only supports up to 32GB cards, this is also the same for the other brands you mention.

Hi Jonny,

Your answer, maybe accurate, but it doesn't answer the primary request to do off-line editing.  Plus, restricting off-line editing to SD cards is too restrictive.  Since UC Control,  Capture, and Studio One can talk to a Series III console from a PC, it would seem the base structure is in place to do off-line editing and move files from one PC to another via thumb drive.  Basically, it's an externally generated project/scene to be uploaded via UC Control.  Just need a template.

I'd be happy with running UC Control (Surface), specify the desired console, and then enter the desired plan info:   channel, User Layer, FAT Channel, Audio routing, digital patching, etc.  Store as a backup file.  Copy to a thumbdrive or SD card, Load onto destination PC or to the console via SD card, and there it is.  Perhaps not the most efficient, but better than not having this capability.  

In fact, the starting template could be a backup file.  That would have the necessary physical info, e.g., console type, networking info.  So what is needed is rather simple...The ability to read and write a backup file without an actual console connected.

There are so many threads requesting an offline editing system for StudioLive mixers. The requests have been there for years now. I don't understand  why the demo mixers that exist in UC Surface and Universal Control aren't adapted to be the offline editor. It seems to be so close to being implemented yet never is.

We need configurations for the demo mixer and the ability to save projects and scenes from the demo mixer to the hosting device (phone / tablet / computer)

Problem solved.
