    Low end vibrations cause TriCaster TC1SP Control Panel to transition on it's own

    I work at a live sound venue and when the subs are blasting heavy the TC1SP will switch on its own!!! I can just tap the table and it will transition. I am up stairs in a balcony 100 feet from the speakers but when it's heavy this happens. Can I disable the T-Bar? My guess is that it uses a type of optical encoder that is freaking out.

    Sounds more like it is your [TAKE] button rather than the t-bar.
    Not sure if you can disable it.
    Of course, it could be the spacebar on your keyboard as well.

    It seems like the T-Bar because a few times it would show the start of a fade like the T-Bar was nudged and the only way to fix it was to fade the T-Bar. All of a sudden program would show a light overlay of preview when nobody was touching the controller.

    Definitely sounds like the t-bar. We had a similar issue with our LC-11 controller. Bad news when you are getting ready to roll a video and it auto plays before you are ready.
    We didn't look into disabling it, so I am also interested if anyone has found a way to do this.

    I believe there are potentiometers on the circuit board in that surface that can be adjusted to trim each end of the t-bar travel. However, if the t-bar was moved slightly it should only begin a transition, not fire the entire transition so I'm not 100% convinced that's your issue.

    Are you sure it's not a keyboard shortcut (Space bar) that is being triggered? I'd go into the macro configuration menu and click the check box to turn off all the internal system macros and see if that resolves your problem..

    If you believe it's actually the t-bar I'd look for a service center who can make adjustments to the t-bar travel.. Open it yourself at your own risk, etc., etc.
