How do I manually Release a Playback?

Once you have finished playing back cues it is important to release the playback. This stops the playback having any further control over the channels. When you lower a fader, the playback is automatically released. However you can configure Trigger and Release settings per Playback from the Playback's Settings. To access this hold SETUP + tap the Playback's button, then tap the "Raise & Lower" tab:

You also have the option to manually Release Playbacks. To do this hold CLEAR and tap the button of the Playback you wish to Release/turn off.

To release all Playbacks except the Master Playback and UDKs, you can hold CLEAR and tap FADER FUNCT., or on Solution hold CLEAR and tap MEMORIES. To release the Master Playback, hold CLEAR and press the GO button of the Master Playback.

On ORB consoles you have some further options for releasing:

  • SHIFT + RELEASE - Releases all Playbacks & UDKs
  • RELEASE + STACK - Releases all Playbacks
  • CLEAR + FADER FUNC. - Releases all Playbacks EXCEPT the Master Playback
  • SUB <Playback Number> RELEASE - Releases the individual Playback via syntax
