Delays

Delays are used to allow songs and sections to change without immediately firing changes. For instance, you may not want to send MIDI or change lighting scenes as soon as a song is loaded in your set. By adding a delay, the song will be required to be viewed without changing for the specified length of time.

Song Change

When you load a song from your library or navigate to a song in a set, that's considered a song change. You can prevent song change actions from occurring immediately by setting a delay.

Section Change

When you tap on a section or choose a section with a foot pedal, it can perform action such as changing lyrics or sending MIDI. You can prevent section actions from firing immediately by setting a delay. This is especially useful when you need to use foot pedals to skip through sections.

Actions

The following actions can have delays set:

  • First Section determines how quickly the first section is selected in the song, if at all. Default is set to Off.
  • Lyrics adjusts the delay before changes in lyrics projection are performed.
  • MIDI adjusts when MIDI changes are sent to MIDI devices when songs or sections are changed. When delaying MIDI when the song is loaded, you can choose "On Playback" which will result in MIDI not being sent until the Audio is toggled on in the system.
  • Scenes adjusts when scenes are changed. Settings a delay will prevent stage lighting or lyrics projection backgrounds from changing too quickly.

Notes: Delays can be set to Immediately (no delay), or after 1/2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 15 20, 25, 30 seconds.
