Description

Selecting Groups

The Group command selects one or more DMX channels in the currently active playback fader that were stored in the specified group resource. Use the Group command in conjunction with an action command like At, On, Off, Enable, Disable, Park, Unpark or Release to set channel levels, change the enable or parked state of channels, or release them. When used alone or in logic expressions, the Group command returns the current value of the specified channel(s).

Either a single group number can be specified, or a range of groups can be specified using the various selection operators like +, -, > and ~.
