    Console Channel Labelling

    Anyone else find it super annoying that the input labels for each channel in console are still not saved with the session? Switching between sessions can be really confusing, because the labels retain the last thing you type into them—if I have a session where analog 1 is 'snare' and I switch to a different session where analog 1 is a vocal input, it will still be labeled 'snare'! I may as well then just leave everything labeled analog 1, 2, etc which negates the purpose of being able to label the inputs at all! Am I missing something? I was really hoping this would have been tackled for the Console 2.0 release . . . but alas . . .

    P.S. as far as I'm aware the new custom core audio settings affect what you see in the DAW, not in Console itself. Am I wrong?

    I can't understand why this feature wasn't implemented in Console 1, never mind Console 2. In the digital age a feature like this is table stakes. This should be a no-brainer to add.

    Doesn't seem to make a difference! I have three presets at the moment—a default for the studio and two different ones for a live show where I use the Apollo on stage. The plug-in chains and routing and so on load fine, but the scribble strip labelling still shows the last thing that was typed in.

    That's because the labels aren't saved in the session files. They are saved in a file called UA Mixer Engine (at least on Windows). It seems to me that it would be a simple and welcome design change to save the channel names in the session files.

    Yup!

    I was so happy when the labeling was introduced. I went through and labeled all my saved sessions, feeling like I was in the future... (haha)

    Then I loaded up one of the saves sessions to work and realized it kept the labeling from whatever was there before I loaded the new session.

    .....Oops...... So I guess that was just a pretend feature. Why did they even announce that?!

    And then it still does the same thing in Console 2. So weird.

    +1000 on this... really annoying that it doesn't save the scribble strips as part of the session... surely a simple fix... update UAD...

    This seems like such a simple thing that shouldn't be too hard to implement. I switch between different setups with my Apollo all the time and the fact that the channel labeling isn't stored in the session files is a major nuisance to me.
