    An easy way to implement the often requested Global Power Setting feature

    Post by Bull_Earwig on Mon Jun 05, 2017 4:46 pm

    I've noticed a some other members post that they wish the power setting on their GM36 was global.

    I.e., they wish they could set it to, say 5W and then, no matter what preset they selected, the amp would stay in its 5W mode. Save 18W and 36W for gigging, 5W may be more than enough for practicing.

    For anyone who had some quiet practice patches set up on 1W or 5W and you accidentally strayed into 36W territory, you know what I'm talking about.

    Of course, you can imagine how H&K would totally hate solutions that involve changes to their amp's hardware or its firmware, which does not seem to readily updateable anyway.

    So my suggestion is that this feature could be implemented in the app as follows:
    1. In the power section, add a check box (or equivalent) that "locks" the power level. Perhaps a push on/push off padlock icon.
    2. The way it really works is that whenever you do a preset change, the app sends a command to select the "locked" power level.
    3. Perhaps the app could provide some sort of indication of what the power level will be once you unlock it.

    As it turns out, the feature I suggested was already thought of in the PC/Windows and Mac versions of the remote control app.
