Logic - General Information

To configure the logic functions of the mixing device, in the project tree, select <Device>/Logic. The subsections of the Logic section are described here.

In this section of the Manual (and in the Toolbox5 software) the following terms are used (which have the same meaning):

  • logic 1, true, 1, active.
  • logic 0, false, 0, not active.
  • rising edge, signal change from 0 to 1.
  • falling edge, signal change from 1 to 0.

All logic sources of a mixing device are shown in the Logic Sources window. When defining new logic functions, they also appear in this window in the Logic Functions section. You can use these functions exactly like the ones preset by the system.

The Logic Sources window.

To open the Logic Sources window, in the View menu, click Logic Sources or press F5.

As input values for the functions described in this section, you can use all logic sources from the Logic Sources window.

The following table lists the separate function groups of logic sources and their sub entries as an overview. You also find detailed descriptions under the functions that control the corresponding logic sources.
