The INPUT/INSERTS button serves several important purposes.  It can be used to reassign the label for a slider input to a different TriCaster audio control by name, or to insert (or remove) a new (initially unassigned) control column on the surface.

Controls for unused inputs or outputs can be removed from the surface, or if you wish, you can re-order controls using the Remove and Insert features. To insert a new control strip on the surface, proceed as follows


1. Make sure FLIP and CHAN are both turned off, and then press the INSERTS button in the Knob Set group.

2. Rotate the knob for Input one clockwise, cycling through optional settings until the label above the knob says Insert. At this point, the small SEL button just left of the rotary knob begins to flash, to indicate that if you wish to confirm your selection you must press it (otherwise, press MIX/PAN to cancel the operation and revert to the original selection).



3. Press the SEL button to execute the insertion. This action inserts a new, unassigned control, pushing the original Artist Mix control group to the right to make room for the addition.

4. Slowly rotate the same knob again – this time, you could choose an option (such as Master 1 option), and then press SEL once more to lock the input to TriCaster’s Input 1a (left) input channel. Instead, just select Remove this time and press SEL to confirm.

Hint: Normally, if you insert a source that already appears elsewhere in the layout, the inserted control group is kept and the original is removed.
