Hi, Looking for a bit of advice on how to set up out JesterML with 8 xLedj Intense 9HEX10 LED Slim Par 9x10W 6in1 colour LED's. I have tried tagging and untagging the fixtues but although their operation changes, it does not give the color mixing I wanted or expected. the lights all operate on different addresses and are set to 8 channel mode.

When Tagged, they operate as follows. When I record the colours into subs the first sub I put up (RED) will operate as expected. When I try to mix a color for example Blue to create purple, the blue will come on at full when the sub is at 5% due to the red sub being fully up, but the Red will go off.

When Untagged the operate as follows. Again all colors are recorded to seperate subs. If I put up the red sub the colour will latch although the light will come down with the fader, when I add the Blue now the Blue will latch on at 5% and Purple will come up as the fader is put to max, then if I take down the fader the colors Blue and Red will be latched on and will not go down with the fader, so as I add other colors until eventually all colors are latched on and all subs do the same thing, only operate the intensity..

Any help with color mixing on this desk will be greatly appreciated..

Thanks..

Hi There!

 

The Jester ML 24 is treating your colour parameters as LTP and what you want is HTP. Can you give me some detail on what you are attempting to do with the lights and I can try to give you some guidance?

Hi James,

Basically using them as wash lights where I wanted to mix colours using the subs.. ie sub1- Red, sub2 -Green, Sub3- Blue.. etc allowing me to mix the colours as i add the them a gradually. .. It worked ok with other RGBW Pars I had when I just used four circuits..one for each of the four colours, but as I now have more LED's I thought I would add them as fixtures to give me more scope.. thanks..

Allow me to re-phrase my question.

 

Is this colour mixing just a test? Or is it for a show? If it's a show can you program the states into the memories or does it need to be busked? or is it just general lighting in a room?

Hi James,

A lot of the shows which are run in the theatre from the desk are busked, ie not plotted, A lot of the shows are tribute acts and turn up about two hours before they are due to start with absolutely no lighting plot. So when I'm doing lighting changes they need to be subtle, not state changes the from red, all of a sudden changing to blue.. Is it a change that is required in the fixture profile, or on the desk itself?

 

Thanks Stuart..

I was worried about that

 

So the Jester desk runs fixtures on LTP, which means the latest command the desk is given is the one that it follows. Depending on your rig, it might be best to have all the LEDS on the same channel, if the lights are RGBD then have them on channels 21 22 23 24 and then program a submaster like they are dimmers. Of course you could change the patch of the desk massively to achieve the same effect .

 

If you send an email to someone at zero88 they may be able to help you better, but from reading the manual I can't see a way to change the controls to HTP

 

Hope that all helps,

 

James
