Is there a way of adding (selected) channels, rather than subs or cues to the fader wing on an Ion? When I try to do it as would seem intuitive - by selecting channels (e.g.  [Enter] ) and pressing both buttons of a fader to load, I get an 'invalid sub number' message - which would seem to indicate that it isn't possible?
Should there be a way of doing this without making individual subs for the channels I want on faders?
Unfortunately at this time the EOS/ION does not support the loding of record targets, other then subs and cues, to masters. In furture software releaces we will be able to lode most of the other recorde targets to masters. Whoo.

Maybe I'm not understanding, Do you want to simply record new selected channel(s) to a fader (AKA Sub) ?, or edit an existing Fader (Sub), that already has channels assigned ?.
I'm not at the 'puter with Ion Off-Line, but it would seem simple enough to do this in Blind ?, Simply record a channel to a fader, or edit the fader ?.
What am I missing ?.
Thanks for both prompt responses; I think, Steve, the first was getting more at my intention - whether it was possible to block-assign single channels to the faders without recording corresponding subs? In which case for the time being it makes sense simply to record the subs I want and assign those.
Can you simply "record a channel to a fader" ? (If so how?)
I'm going to assume that if a fader is acting as a Submaster, then you can simply record a single channel at a desired level to a fader/sub. You can do this live or blind. I would also assume that you can modify in either live or blind by simply adding the desired channels to the sub, which should be at full in live, and re-record.
This is simple stuff in Expression, has it changed or gotten needlessly complicated in Eos/Ion ?. Which then makes my assumptions incorrect.
I was going to say that if you are resigned to using Subs, and if your Faders are configured as such, and if the channels are at full already, You could record them with one less keystroke. (e.g [1 Record [desired sub's bump button ]], but I was surprised to see that while it works on EOS faders, it doesn't on the fader wing.
I was also surprised to see that the above syntax would add onto an existing Sub instead of replacing. I would have that would be Update instead.
