Mic Profile Subdirectories

Now that there is a major proliferation of remote client hardware/software options - Maestro, K6TU Remote, DL8MRE Radio App, Remote Operated SSDR, Dogpark, and many, many others, each using their own mic and needing their own set of Mic profiles, I think the need should be evident for the ability to arrange our Mic profiles into sub-directories so that we can keep profiles separate for each client.

I currently use no fewer than 5 different methods of accessing my Flex-6500:  SSDR at the Shack, SSDR Remote on a laptop, K6TU Remote on my iPad, DL8MRE in Ipad with Bluetooth Headset, DL8MRE on iPhone with iphone mic, Dl8MRE on iPhone in car with my car's Handsfree....


I need a set of Mic Profiles for each situation and each mic that is used on it.  (Rag Chew, DX Normal, DX Narrow-punchy, FM, AM, etc).  If I have all of those different profiles in the same folder, as it is currently implemented, I have over 20 different Mic Profiles.  They are all necessary, but it makes it hard to quickly find the profile I need, and it is confusing when I need to edit one for a particular remote client/Mic combination.


If I could arrange them so that the iPad had it's own set, the Remote SSDR had its own set, the K6TU Remote had its own set, etc... It would bring this virtual rats-nest of profile definitions under control.  It will be even more important when WAN remote and Multiple Clients access is released.......


Call me OCD, but this is the way I roll!  Especially when I am testing multiple ways of doing remote and I want to maximize the excellent audio for each method and situation.

Not yet.  It is still in Alpha-Testing.  But you can start drooling now...!

Oh...Ok. Your post made it sound like you already had it or it was already out.
Yes, we will wait as we must without holding our breath.

I would have to agree for the same reasons. SmartSDR on shack computer PR-40, SmartSDR on laptop with headsets and mics, and then now the Maestro, each with their own Rag Chew, DX Normal, DX Narrow-punchy, FM, AM, etc.

I would go a step further, direct access to profiles, either adding it as an option to the selectable functions, and or adding the push button on the A/B vfo filters to be programable for a function. Like the TX Menu button on the MIC/PWR knob.

I would also love to see a few programmable buttons on the SSDR screen to allow things like quickly toggling through a few of my favorite Mic Profiles, quickly toggling through my various Receive antenna options, Toggling through a few favorite Global Profiles (such as Normal & Remote, which would also automatically select which Mic Profile sub-directory I want to use), toggling through several favorite RX EQ settings (that could be implemented by allowing multiple presses on the RX EQ button and allowing two or three options).

One small row of buttons, perhaps on the top of the "TX/P/CW/PHNE/RX/EQ" control panel, would have room for five user-definable function buttons.
