I have a problem. In frame memory 8 I have a loop in play all the program. In the others FM, I am changing whith the snapshots whith User 4. In user 4 I delegate in FM 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8. Then when I make a snapshot whith still in FM 1,3,4,5 I save the snapshot whith user 4 turning it on. I recall the snapshot and it recall all FM, FM 8 inclusive and it appear stopped. How can I do for insert a "hold" in the FM 8 only?

Thank you very much

Its a real good idea to have a good think about how you want to split up the users before you start building a show. Will you need the CCR's or the colour backgrounds during a show? Are you Aux's in distinct groups you would like to recall en-masse? Getting this correct from the beginning is a very good idea as its a pain in the butt to change them later because you have redo a lot of your work. 

For instance I prefer to only use a user snapshot to setup the Aux's on the mixer at the start of a show, any other changes during a show I like to be more surgical with macros recalling xpt changes. This means every Aux can be in one User. However I like independent snapshots of the two CCR's so they are generally user 5&6 on my setups.

You can't do snapshot holds for user groups. A better setup would be to split up the Frame mems across multiple user groups. Personally I always run FM1&2 on user 1, FM3&4 user 2, FM5&6 on user 3 and FM7&8 on user 4. This gives you granular control of recalling frame mems.

Hosko's suggestion is definately the preferred way of separating out the FM recalls, and it works very very well.  If, however you are using FM 8 to do nothing but play back a loop that you are never going to touch throughout your program, another option might be to use a Macro to recall/play the clip.  You can de-assign the FM from any of the user levels, and it thus won't be affected by any recalls. This also has the advantage of freeing up a User Level.

I used this technique on a show called Hollywood Squares many years ago - I had 6 Frame Memory Loops that continuously played into various monitors on stage throughout the show.  I used one Macro as part of my start-of-show set-up Snapshot - this Macro called up and played all 6 clips in a loop.  Thus, I never had to worry about an errant Still/Clip recall during the show, and I only needed one User Level to access my remaining 2 FM channels.
