That doesn't seem to work.
I put some drawbars in my layout...assigned them to the EVB3 drawbars in one of the patches...switch to another patch where they are not assigned, and they're still completely there.

Yes, I'd actually like this for any control --- if a particular patch doesn't use certain controls, then I'd like them to be not visible rather than marked as unassigned....it would remove a lot of clutter.Mac OS X (10.6.1), Check my bio for more details.
They are only marked as unassigned in edit mode, if you switch to perform or full screen mode they become transparent and inactive. It is recommended that when you want to perform with MainStage, you use one of these two modes since it activates additional performance optimizations that make MainStage faster and more responsive.
I've tried it a couple of times and this doesn't seem to be the case with the drawbar controls.
I added the group of drawbars in layout and assigned each drawbar to the appropriate upper manual drawbar inside EVB3 in edit mode. When I switch to Perform or Fullscreen, the drawbars move to the correct setting when I go to the B3 patch, but when I switch to a non-B3 patch (and not assigned), the drawbars change to full (8) and are still completely visible and not grayed out.
Something else I noticed that's odd about Mainstage, in general, it doesn't really want to show the value of something onscreen. Meaning, I'd like something visible to show me if the Leslie is in choral or fast mode, but it doesn't report the change...if you know what I mean. It just wants to duplicate hardware controls instead of having the ability to show values on the screen. Does that make sense?
Anyway, it would be great if Mainstage had that ability.Mac Pro 3.0 8-core / MacBook Pro 2.4 / iPhone 3GS, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
