AMP GUI Tutorial (Creating a User and Setting Permissions)
1.) Open up the AMP GUI program and click on “Configuration” along the top of the program. Once the drop down menu opens, click on “User Management”
2.) After clicking on “User Management” the “User Management” window will open. (You’ll notice how Admin is already listed with Super User privileges) Click on the “Add User” button at the bottom of the window to edit the User details and assign an Access level.
3.) Once the “User Details” window is open, you can now make a new user. In this example we named our User Name: “User 1.” Click on the arrow for the Access Level drop down menu. For this example, we’re going to give User 1 we created the access level for Aux 1-6 Only.
NOTE: The “Super User” has master permission for everything as a preset setting. Other created “Access Level Users” can self-assign themselves as many or as few permissions as they see fit. (More on this later) See chart below for a visual breakdown:
4.) After we’ve named our User and defined the permissions in the “User Details” window, click on the “OK” button at the bottom of the window to save the changes made. You will now see our newly created User 1 listed in the “User Management” window under the Admin account. Along with the listing is the Access Level permission we set for it for Aux 1-6 Only.
5.) Next we are going to open up the “Access Level Editor” which will enable us to view our already established permissions. We can also edit them giving us the option to add more permissions or less. Click on the “Close” button at the bottom of the “User Management” window. Click on “Configuration” along the top of the program and then click on “Access Level Editor” in the drop down menu.
6.) Once the “Access Level Editor” is open select the desired level in this case, Aux 1-6. Here you can view the permission given, add permissions, or remove permission as you see fit. Below the “Mix Access” section note how the “Channel Access” section is open if you desire to enable those permissions as well as permissions for the Input channel, Output channel, Aux Output, Matrix, and DCA.
7.) Whenever you are finished adding, or removing permissions and different options you can click on the “Apply” button to save your changes without leaving the “Access Level Editor” window.
NOTE: The permissions for “Super User” are read-only and cannot be changed. (See chart on page two for visual reference)
*** In the Access Level Editor you will also have the ability to change the name of any selection from the drop down box. Highlight the name in the drop down box, and then start typing whatever name you want to change it to and hit enter. ***

AMP GUI Tutorial (Opening Multiple Windows / Channel Strips / Locking Windows)
1.) Open up the AMP GUI Program and click on “File” and then “Open New Window” from the drop down menu
2.) The WDL File Selector window will open up. From here we have various different selections to choose from. You can either double click on a selection to open it, or click on the “Load Button” at the bottom to open your desired selection up.
3.) The AMP GUI Program is able to open up multiple Windows at once, so you can open and position multiple windows to work on as you see fit. See below example:
NOTE: Although the AMP GUI Program allows you to open multiple windows at once, certain selections are different. The Channel Strip is one of these. In the example below, notice how an error message pops up when we try to open up a second Channel Strip. The same applies to all Toolbar, Talkback, Keyboard, and Scene selections as well. Only one can be open at a time.
4.) The AMP GUI program also gives you the ability to the Hide Titlebar” to lock any specific window in place. Right click on the window you want to lock after you’ve positioned it to your liking, and click on “Hide Titlebar” from the drop down menu. After doing this you will notice you can no longer move your selected window.
5.) If you want to reposition the window you are working on, right click on it and you will see “Show Titlebar” pop up. Click on that, and you will be able to resize and reposition the window again to your liking.
