Introduction:
The DakingPlus Monitor section Solo and Cut Controller is designed to integrate into and
become part of the Geoffrey Daking & Company recording console. The monitor section
is capable of operating as a stand alone system as well. The intelligence built in to the
controller allows the unit to be very flexible and equipped with some very handy features.
The user can choose any channel to put in a solo-safe mode and can also have the
monitor section participate in the Automute mute group feature of the Daking console. In
addition, the monitor section controller is MIDI capable to allow basic mute and solo
automation using any MIDI sequencer.

Using the Monitor Controller:
Solo Mode:
The solo mode of the monitor section is determined by the state of the main console’s
destructive solo switch. This is true even if the monitor section is in solo isolate mode. If
the console is in Destructive Solo mode then when a solo button is pressed it will activate
the cuts on channels that are not soloed and are not in solo safe mode.
When the console is in non-destructive (AFL) mode then pressing a solo button will
cause the control room source to change to the solo buss and the audio signal from that
channel will be routed to the solo audio buss. Only the solo lamp will illuminate to show
that the channel is in solo mode.
3
Monitor Solo Isolate:
Pressing the Monitor Solo Isolate switch will place the entire center section in solo isolate
from the main part of the console. Pressing a solo on a channel in the monitor section will
cause the monitor to cut all the channels that are not in solo however, the input modules
in the main part of the desk will NOT participate in the solo. Should something in the
input section be soloed then the monitor will not participate in the solo.
This really only applies to the destructive solo mode. Should the console be in nondestructive AFL mode then this switch will make no difference in the performance of the
console.
Go-Figure Mode:
Pressing this button allows the user to configure the monitor section for Solo-Safe and
AutoMute function for each individual channel. When in the Go-Figure mode the solo
lights indicate which channels are in solo-safe mode. If the light is on then it is in solosafe and will not participate in a destructive solo. If the light is off then the channel will
be cut when another solo button is pressed during normal console functioning.
The cut lamp indicates which channels will participate in a AutoMute mute group. If it is
on then it will cut when AutoMute is engaged. If the lamp is off then it will not mute with
the master AutoMute switch.
Solo Safe:
When a channel is in this mode it will not cut when another channel’s solo button is
pressed and the console is in destructive solo mode. When the console is in Nondestructive solo mode the solo safe for the channel will have no effect. Please refer to the
Go-Figure section to learn how to configure a channel for Solo-safe mode.
AutoMute:
When a channel is in the AutoMute mute group, then the channel will mute when the
console’s AutoMute function is activated . Please refer to the Go-Figure section to learn
how to configure a channel for AutoMute mode.
Clear Solo:
When any channel is soloed in the monitor section, the Clear Solo lamp will illuminate to
show that it is active. Pressing the switch at this time will clear all channels that are in
solo in the monitor section. It will have no effect on the input module side of the console.
4
Clear Cuts:
Should you want to clear all the cuts in the monitor section, you can do so by pressing the
clear cuts switch. This will not effect the input module section.
.
Solo Write:
When the Solo Write function is engaged, the monitor section will send out Midi data
showing that a channel is in solo. In this mode it will also respond to a solo that is sent
back along the midi line. This way a solo can be automated when it is so desired. Any
solos that were previously automated will still be active. The cuts that occur when a solo
button is pressed are not sent out as cuts so the automation is only sending out a solo
command and will respond to it as if you pressed the solo button. So if a channel is in
solo-safe when the solo is written and it is not in solo safe when it is played back then the
other channels will cut when the solo is played back. Likewise, if it was not in solo-safe
when the solo was written but it is when the solo is played back then the other channels
will not cut.
Midi Implementation:
The system is able to communicate using two different Midi protocols. One protocol is
where each solo and cut switch is mapped to a keyboard note and the unit sends out and
responds to standard Midi Note ON and Note OFF commands. The other protocol
emulates a JL Cooper 4/100 fader pack which in turn emulates the MCS-3000x protocol
in Avid mode. The protocol is selected with a jumper located on the Solo & Cuts
controller PCB. With the jumper removed, the unit is in Note ON/OFF mode. Connect
the jumper and it will emulate the 4/100.
There are advantages and disadvantages to both modes. In the 4/100 mode you can set up
a workstation so that the solo and cut buttons on the workstation’s virtual console will
actually control the solo and cut button of the monitor section. Likewise, pressing one of
the cut buttons will engage the cut on the screen. The disadvantage is that you will only
have control over the first 16 channels. There is no ability to control channels 17-24.
With the Note ON/OFF mode, any Midi sequencer can be used to control the solo and cut
functions of the monitor section. All 24 channels have the ability to be automated in this
mode.
Note ON/OFF Mode:
Pressing a Solo or Cut button when the switch is off will send out the following Midi
data:
90h xx 7Fh
90h is a Note On command for Midi channel 1
xx is the Midi note number which in this case is the switch number.
5
7F is the velocity which in this case is the maximum velocity.
Pressing the same switch when it was already on will send out the following Midi data:
80h xx 7Fh
80h is a Note Off command for Midi channel 1.
4/100 Mode:
Pressing a Solo switch to enter into solo mode will send out the following Midi data:
Bxh 47h 7Fh
Pressing a solo switch to exit solo mode will send out the following:
Bxh 47h 00h
Where x is the channel number 0-15 which is actually channel 1 -16 on the monitor
section.
Pressing a Mute button to engage the mute sends out:
Bxh 46h 7Fh
Pressing the Mute button to disengage the Mute will send out:
Bxh 46h 00h
6
Quick Reference Chart:
Solo Mode:
Destructive Solo (Solo In Place) select the mode using the main console Solo
mode switch.
Monitor Solo Isolate:
Press the Monitor Solo Isolate switch located on the right side of the monitor
section. When it is lit, it is in Solo Isolate and will not respond or send solo commands to
and from the main console.
Go-Figure Mode:
When lit, Solo buttons show which channels are in Solo-Safe and Cut buttons
show which channels are in the AutoMute Group function. Just press a channel’s Solo or
Cut button to change the setting.
Solo Safe:
Use the GoFigure Mode to configure which channels are in Solo Safe by lighting
up the solo button on the channel you want in safe mode.
AutoMute:
Use the GoFigure Mode to configure which channels will respond to an
AutoMute group command from the console by lighting up the Cut button on the channel
you want to mute.
Clear Solo:
Pressing it clears all solos in the monitor section. When the switch is lit it is
indicating that one or more channels are currently in solo mode.
Clear Cuts:
Pressing it clears all Cuts in the monitor section. This button however, will not
light up when a cut button is pressed. The only time you will see this switch light is while
you are pressing it.
Solo Write:
Allows the monitor section to send out a Solo command on the Midi output. It
will also respond to a solo on the midi input at this time.
