Feature Request - Mic Swap for RCP


Love the RCP companion software and have been using it for a long time. I’m trying to clean up the buttons that I have on my streamdeck and I am wondering if there is a way to have the next version of RCP include a simple swap for two channels.

Currently when I double mic an actor I need two buttons to go swap between their primary and secondary mics and I’d like to just have one button to press to swap back and forth between them. I have one key set for InCh/Fader/Level to go to -inf on CH1 and InCh/Fader/Level to go to 0 on CH2. Then the second key is InCh/Fader/Level to -inf on CH2 and InCh/Fader/Level to 0 on CH1 to restore.

I’m not sure if there’s a way to program it via an if/then statement and have it do something like, “if InCh/Fader/Level $CHX is 0 then set InCh/Fader/Level $CHX -inf and InCh/Fader/Level $CHY 0 or if InCh/Fader/Level $CHY is 0 then set InCh/Fader/Level $CHX 0 and InCh/Fader/Level $CHY -inf”

It’s also possible I may just be overcomplicating this and it already exists. If that’s so great. I just haven’t found it.


This would not be hard at all to do on a single button. However, my personal preference would be to switch the channel on/off rather than move the faders, since I might have the fader at a different position when switching. It also would mute the mixes that way.
Anyway, the way to do it is with step actions.
Step 1 would be unmute ch 1 and mute ch 2.
Step 2 would be mute ch 1 and unmute ch 2.
Make sure Step Increment (I think it’s called) is checked.
Each press will alternate between step 1 and step 2.
Add a feedback for ch 1 muted and ch 2 unmuted so you can tell which ch is active.
Give it a try and let me know if you run into any difficulties.
