    Other: On a curious note, in software version 3.0 if you hit Macro 7 and Macro 2 you see the Help menu pop up, but no way to navigate. If you hit M7 again you see the fader display, but no way to navigate.  How fun.

    Note:   You should know that the 96-channel and 192-channel LPC's will default to "Two Scene" mode. This causes the A/B fader to act as a crossfader and not a cue fader.
    If someone is running a show written in an Expression Console and they need to reference a Macro to a cue, have them run the cue in the C/D fader pair. 

    You can write a macro to change into 1-scene mode.
