Sorry, I thought there was just one classic palette.
Yes, silver desk/ 2 playbacks / 32 faders.
I was using the windows UI personality, earlier in this thread when I said the popups were slow, and changed to classic palette us, in order to see if that would go to command line only.

The 500 personalities change to command line. If you want to see the dialogboxes you press and hold [SHIFT] and then press your command. e.g. [SHIFT]+[UPDATE] gives you the dialog box.

But that's not relevant to the Classic Palette, is it? I can only use Windows UI or Classic Palette US?

The software is the same on all of the consoles. There are very few things that can only be done on one family of consoles over another.

Every personality works on every console. If you want to work more 500 style, choose the GeniusPro 500 style. This gives you much more commandline control and you can let go of the mouse and the S-key a bit more!

Thanks, didn't know that... bit counterintuitive, isn't it, that you don't need to use the personality that has the name of your desk... I would like to try to get rid of popups and see if that speeds things up a bit. the desk gets incredibly slow especially 12 hours into rehearsal.
