    Tricaster Mini 4K - DDR Presets

    Hello.

    In the new Tricaster Mini 4K, the DDR playlists/presets are missing.
    Each DDR can only have one preset. Is that on purpose?
    Seems like there's no reason at all to take those off, and it significantly limits what we can do with the Tricaster.

    Thanks.

    It's on the list of features when you go to the Mini 4K page and then click on Features... but then again, so is Macros.

    https://www.newtek.com/tricaster/mini/ and click Features.

    I guess they are just linking to a common features page for all the IP TriCasters. There is some fine print on that page.

    Response from Newtek:

    Hello Imry,

    You are correct, the TriCaster 4K Mini does not have DDR presets. This is by design.

    Thank you,
    Michael



    I honestly don’t get it. You replace one mini with another, and you LOSE a long list of features, that have nothing to do with capacity, load or resources??? Just because?? I am not happy.

    That is baffling. Those have been in there since the original XD line TriCasters. That is such a bizarre design choice.

    What happens if you use a macro (the one you had to sneak in) to move to the next preset? Is it just hidden in the UI but works or is it fully removed?

    I don’t know. Haven’t tried that.

    Newtek says they will undo this, and bring back the DDR presets to the Mini. Now we wait...
