Adding a chase to the cue stack

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to add a fixture chase to the cue stack on the TLXtra.

I've got it recorded to a submaster, but when I transfer it to the cue using the "sub up in run - switch to program" method, it doesn't transfer the chase steps.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Nodmaz,

 

You need to record the chase directly into the cue, in exactly the same way as you record chases onto a submaster.

 

So, record the first step into the cue, reselect the cue, and then record the second step, and choose <Create Chase>

Oh for the love of..

So, the 20 step chase that I want to use 30 times in a stack of 120 I have to record each and every step each time it's used?!

No, you don't have to do that - there's an easy way to copy and paste:

 

Select the cue (make sure the "No." column is selected, not the "step" column), and press EDIT.

 

Go to the blank cue where you'd like to copy the chase to, and then press PROGRAM (red glowing button).

 

That should copy and paste the cue where you'd like it to go.

 

After pressing EDIT, you can also press ENTER 150 ENTER, which will jump you to cue 150 (whether programmed or empty) so you can paste it directly there rather than having to press the up / down keys several times.

 

(This method works across submasters and cues too. I didn't mention it previously as I thought you wanted to add the chase on top of an already programmed static cue).

Jon, thankyou very much for that comprehensive answer, you've just saved me a tonne of work!

 

It seems that you can copy a sub into the stack using that method and the chase works, so even better.

 

Cheers

Andy
