How can we improve DL1608?

DCA Groups

Add DCA type fader grouping to allow the user to change the volume of a group of faders by moving one fader.

        Assigning to Main output similar to reverb and delay layout should be an easy software adaption. Would step the DL1608 up a notch.
        G1: Drums/Bass, G2: guitars, G3: Keys, G4: Vox
        This would also allow for easy mute option during breaks or change overs

        This is essential.
        More so if we can make a mixer layout, so we can see the faders we want at one given time.
        We could have the drum in one dca, keybords in another, back vocals in other, making possible to view and control the all mix at once.

        dcas would be great, think of it as another fader layer. sort of like an aux layer is done on this system. only these are assigned fader channels; say all the faders that are for the drum kit. and when you move this dca fader for the drum kit up or down relative to unity it will adjust all the voltage levels proportionately for the faders assigned. dcas should be mutable

        DCAs normally work by moving on fader which affects the volume of all the other faders in the group - think of a DCA as a Group Fader that does not have any DSP etc. Under the surface the volume of the individual channels are adjusted in proportion, but the faders do not move.
        This is quite powerful because it allow us to set up and good mix (for say drums or vocals) and adjust individual faders that are part of the mix without the other faders moving (which would happen if all the faders in a group were locked together).
        DCAs are common in digital mixers (the tt24 had them as an alternative to Group faders).

        By moving an extra fader (e.g. to the right of the iPad fader?) or by moving a fader in the group and all the other faders move proportionally?
