Default S3 talkback issue

We use talkback buttons wired in parallel to the footswitch for the cleint seating and for the most part this works great. There are a couple issues that I am noticing:

1. When a client has the footswitch depressed to open the talkback, if I hit "MixtoMons" their talkback is defeated. This should not work this way, when the footswitch gets depressed, "MixtoMons" should work like the parallel wiring so as long as ANY button is pushed they are all pushed.

2. The quick tap latching behavior tends to confuse clients and create awkward situations. It would be great to be able to turn that off.

Otherwise this is a great and useful feature.

I gave up on people dealing with buttons and just automated the entire TB in my studio. Drum room, main room and CR have boundary mics feeding AUX tracks and Sound Radix' Mute-o-Matic plugin is on the 3. When transport is rolling, no TB. As soon as I stop, all the mics open. I realize that some folks are afraid of live TB, but all my guys got used to it quick enough that nobody really thinks about it anymore

We're doing a lot of ADR, VO, phone and source connect patching working with different clients in and out everyday so that option wouldn't work for us.

It does seem like a very elegant solution in music studio environment. A couple simple fixes/options in the hardware could make this a perfect Talkback option.

If you change the TB button assignment (TBEngage=) on the S3 to User/Footswitch this might allow you to have both pressed at the same time.

As long as you’re not using the User button for anything else in Eucon.

This is how we have it setup and it does not solve the problem. The biggest issue is when you have folks that dance on the talkback key and accidentally engage the latch feature, then everybody gets confused and it stops the flow of the session. Directors get pissed when they have to say stuff twice to talent b/c the button logic is wonky.
