Launch Control

When the program is started, the ‘Launch Control’ panel is modeled above the main application window.

Launch Control


Event Asset Folder

1. Event Asset Folder
Establishing the event asset folder is mandatory. To make transferring event files to other storage mediums or computers easier, all assets will be automatically copied into this folder even when resourcing files from other drives and/or folders.
NOTE: Files are copied leaving the original file intact at its source. To prevent excessive use of available drive space on your system it is recommended that you manually add needed event assets directly to the event folder and prevent the system from needing to create wasteful copies.

Default Audio Device

2. Default Audio Device
Every new asset added needs to know what audio output to use. In most cases you will probably use the same one. This where you can choose which will be that go-to default. This does not need to be the same one setup in Windows as its default. Although, if this is the first time using Legion or if a previously assigned output no longer exists, the app will automatically revert to the Windows default.

Recent Playlists

3. Recent Playlists
This list displays all playlists currently saved in the event asset folder. Double click an item to reload that file.

Show Tool Tips

4. Show Tool Tips
When enabled each individual control will produce a helpful popup describing its purpose. Due to it sometimes interfering with mouse clicks, it is recommended that this feature be disabled once you feel comfortable with all aspects of the program.

Workstation Type

5. Workstation Type
One of the program’s key features is its ability to easily connect to another workstation and use it as a backup that will mimic the primary. If you wish to setup for this scenario select the appropriate role for each of the two workstations
NOTE: As long as the link between the two are enabled all transport commands and edits performed on the primary will instantly occur on the backup as well. Also, if an asset file is added to the primary playlist but does not exist on the backup, a copy of the file will automatically be transferred to the backup for you. 

Start New Playlist

6. Start New Playlist
Click this to create a new playlist.
An input box will open. Simply type in a desired name and click ‘OK’.

NOTE: Once this is selected the Launch Control will automatically close.


Browse Playlists

7. Browse Playlists
As the name implies, this opens a file browser where you can find a particular playlist file to open.

NOTE: Once a file is selected the Launch Control will automatically close.
