What is a Soft Key?
When watching the following videos, they might refer to Soft Keys. On your light board, you have a keyboard. Each key has a printed label. It never changes. It always stays the same. It’s a “hard key”.
Soft Keys are virtual buttons on your screen that you can press or click with your mouse that change depending on what you’re doing. Grabbing a channel will show different keys than when recording a cue.
These are found at the bottom of your screen. Watch them change as you’re working!
