DMX problems programming

Recommended Posts

I have recently bought a jester 24/48 desk and I am programing a new show. But it seems I cant assign the same dmx to more than one preset.

 

Any thoughts?

Not sure what the problem is from your description but it is certainly possible to assign more than one DMX channel address to a fader - you do this in Super User and page 30 in the manual describes the procedure.

 

You don't assign DMX address to presets but to the channels within each preset - the preset is just a handy way of having two separate levels set for the same dimmer channel then being able to cross fade between them.

I was trying to add a dimmer DMX patch to one of the faders but it seemed that i could only have it on one fader when i put it on another fader it took it off the previous one?

That's "expected behaviour" - you can't assign the same DMX channel address to more than one fader - which one then takes priority?

 

You can assign multiple DMX channels to one fader - all the channels then track the output "commanded" by the fader.

 

If everything you have is new, then set the 'first' dimmer pack for channels 1 to 6 at DMX address 1 - the 2nd dimmer pack for 7 to 12 at Address 7 and so on. If you need multiple dimmer channels controlled by one fader then you can either look at Page 30 in the manual and do the patch on the desk or if you're using BetaPack 3's you can use individual channel addresses on those.

Im not using dimmer packs im using kam bars which have 15 channels of DMX each with channel 2 being the dimming channel. I am using 4 of these kam bars giving me a total of 60 channels of DMX to have individual control of every light and colour. Can you advise how to set up the desk in this manor please.

Hi Sam,

 

Please can you tell us exactly what model the bar is (ideally, a link to the manual would be good), so we can suggest the best way to make this work?

 

Be aware that the Jester 24/48 only supports upto 48 individually controls channels, so there will have to be some duplication somewhere!

 

Best regards

 

Jon
