Ok, never really played with them, but Triggers open up a bunch of new possibilities. @crazzycowprod and I were talking about how broadcast consoles can switch routing when faders are pulled down and I thought, “hey, that should be possible with companion and triggers!”
Gave it a try, and it works! Got me to thinking as well, pretty much ANY sort of “if this then that” type of automation could be created.
- When I turn off this channel, turn on these other two.
- When I bring up a send, automatically turn it on.
- When I lock the console, dim the lights.
So many possibilities!
