A SnapShot stores console settings for recall at a later date. System 5 supports 240 SnapShots per Title. The engineer can choose which parameters to include in a SnapShot. For example, a SnapShot may include every setting on all channels, a single channel, or just the EQ or pan settings on a single channel.
SnapShots can be named and can also be modified. If only channel 1 was saved, for example, it is a simple matter to add channel 2 to this same SnapShot. In this example when the SnapShot is recalled only channel 1 and 2's setting will be updated.
