At PLASA, I was talking to someone on the ETC stand about being able to use two of the programmed presets at same time. I was just wondering if any one could either point me in the direction of a manual for the smartlink stations (I can only find how to program the presets) or give me a quick run down on how to do this.

This is not currently possible - SmartPacks only support 1 active Preset at a time.
Luke is correct. Smartpacks do not support more than one active preset at a time.
However, SmartLink stations can be used in conjunction with other products as well. The only product that supports up to 4 SmartLink presets active at one time in a single room is a Sensor+ Rack with a CEM+.
Sorry for any confusion.

Ah ok! No worries - just something that's been bugging for a while as I work in a variety of venues that all have the 10 button smartlink stations.
Thank you to both for your replies.

Sooo... can you do it with Paradigm system? The idea of "Push this button from this much, and this button for this much more interests me more than either or.

In Paradigm a button can have one of about 100 different actions that may or may not interact with the other buttons. Of course that includes macros...I think it would be fair to say SmartLink is to Paradigm as SmartFade is to Eos.

Gotchya! Now if I just had a touch screen to go with it:( So many doors would open:)
Paradigm has touchscreens.
Design your own look and graphics. (a field technician is still required) Anything a button or slider can do is available, and a few extras. I find the color picker is cute.
