Description

Setting The Cue Follow Time

Use the Follow command to set the cue follow time for the active playback fader. Whenever a Go occurs, this time is used to start a timer that will automatically execute another Go as soon as the timer expires. The cue follow time is automatically set by cues being loaded into the playback fader, but the Follow command can be used to override the cue follow time.

Clearing The Cue Follow Time

Sometimes, it may be useful to cancel the follow timer in a playback fader. Use the Follow Clear command to clear any currently running follow timer in the active playback fader.

Determining The Current Cue Follow Time

Use the Follow command with the question mark (?) to return the current cue follow time. A cue follow time such as 1 or 7.21 will be returned.

Examples

Follow 1
Sets the cue follow time to 1 second.

Cue 22 Follow 5 Go
Loads cue 22, then overrides it’s follow time to 5 seconds before executing it.

Follow Clear
Clears any currently running follow timer in the active playback fader.
