I have a project where I need a USB audio interface with 12 analog outputs, so I love the PlayAudio12 for this. The default setup has 14 channels in from the PC, but only the first 10 routed to the 10 analog outputs on the back. I was able to use the patchbay in iConfig to route channels 11 and 12 and to the headphone jack no problem (other than worrying about iConfig being discontinued and no indication that Auracle will be able to do this patching).
I saved the settings to the EEPROM so it keeps these settings if it restarts. However, if the scene ever gets switch from Scene A to Scene B, my settings are lost. Even if you switch back to Scene A, it doesn't return to the settings I had wanted. It seems any time you change scenes, it forces the first 10 inputs from USB1/2 (1 in Scene A, 2 in Scene B ) to the first 10 analog outputs (and first 10 analog mixer inputs) and the first 2 analog mixer outputs to the headphone jack, regardless of any saved settings.
Is there any way to alter or disable this behavior? Either to modify what it does when changing scenes, like saving a preset per scene it will use, or just disable scene switching altogether. I am not using any redundancy features and don't even have a 2nd PC plugged into USB2, so I don't really need the scenes at all.
I already figured out how to disable the auto-failover using the PlayAudio12 Advanced Setting Tool (I kept accidentally sending data to channel 13), but I'm still worried about someone accidentally bumping the Scene A/B button on the face of the device. This is for a long-term installation and once it is installed, there won't be an easy way to re-run iConfig to fix the settings if someone bumps it. For that matter, disabling all the front-face controls would be nice so someone can't accidentally adjust a volume.
