About saving 48V status on scenes

asked Mar 4, 2016 in StudioLive Series Feature Requests by yvesrouillaud (750 points)
Is it possible to add on a next firmware the ability to save 48V status of each channel on a saved scene. When I change a scene on a same show, some micro type can change, to have a static one in place of  a dynamic one for example.

When console is shut off, the 48V status was saved in quick saving staus of the board each 5 seconds. Why not in a custom saved scene ?

I have pressed for an answer on this issue in the past.  The best answer I have received that this is a legacy design decision that was made with the first generation mixers that has been carried through the current generation of mixers  The rationale has been made that this is to protect non-condesor microphones from 48v  I can see this logic, but the point it simply does not hold up in all scenarios .  If protecting mics was paramount, it would make much more sense if 48v disable between scenes, but that would probably cause other folks problems as well.

I think the best solution would be to simply allow the user to select in the scene parameters whether or not 48V settings should be applied to the scene and then global settings to allow the user to select how the management of 48v best fits their needs.  

I finally got this in my mental checklist, but this has burned me so many times.

tying phantom to scenes is a great idea
