SonaFlex Technical Tips: Sound Scenes and Overrides

You can override the selected source on any output or group of outputs with the SonaFlex SF-16M. Once the override is cancelled, the output(s) return to the previous source signal(s). This feature is useful for listening to local sources and for applications such as doorbells and paging microphones. Sound Scenes are similar, but with a sound scene, the change is permanent, and instead of switching effected outputs to one source, multiple outputs can be switched to different sources simultaneously. See the Sound Scenes and Overrides video tutorial for a basic demonstration.

Scenes and Overrides FAQ

Q. What's the difference between an Override and a Scene Preset?
  • An override temporarily switches one or more outputs to a single input.
  • A sound scene preset permanently switches multiple outputs to multiple inputs. 
  • A sound scene can't be cancelled or released like an override, returning to the previous system state.

Q. How can I trigger an Override or Sound Scene Preset?
  • Serial command (or via Ethernet)
  • Contact closure on the SF-16M rear panel
  • A FlexPort override can be triggered by the override button on the FlexPort transmitter.
Note: You can't trigger a sound scene using an override.

    See the Sound Scenes and Overrides video tutorial for a basic demonstration.
