Effect speed

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've been working with the solution for a few months now and I'm very pleased with it.

Except for one thing I can't figure out. Is there an easy way for me to control the speed of an effect when I've programmed it on a submaster, like a second submaster controlling the speed or something. this would be very usefull because we always have to improvise the lighting.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Max

If you record your effect into a sub, then go to the newly recorded sub setting (hold down setup the select the flash button on the submaster) you will see an option called 'sub controls' on the sub setup screen, select this and you will be shown several options, one of them is effect. This will control the effect in relation to the sub, although i am unsure if this will work as you intend I hope it gets you closer to a solution.

I understand what you want to do ; but I think there is actually no solution (on a solution desk)

effect speed is NOT à fixture parameter (so no way to get it controlled separately (ex DMX-In or Submaster etc)

but there is actually access by the wheel (but not globally only Submaster by submaster...)

when a Submaster with a recorded FX is actif, you have to do a selection of the fixtures you want to control the FX-speed, than activate the Effect-Key... and turn the speed wheel (but I agree this is not comfort at all !!) programmer allways overwrites Subs and memories and when your hit the clear-button all come back to recorded parameters...

 

to get it done globally, the only way I see is if Zeroo88 would add in the future à MIDI parameter to get this thing controlled via an external (or internal) MIDI controller.... or create a virtual global parameter with a dedicated global access a bit like the speed parameter for chases....

 

on my wish-list a global speed-control for effects would be welcome (but I thing other features are more important....)

I'm missing this feature on solution desk too.. any updates on that will help to do better live performances.

 

I know i'm not on the right sub-forum, but what's about speed controll of effect in ORB XF?
