Multiple dimmers

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

our venue just purchased Zero88 solution desk. Before, we had a 72ch console that was more then 15 years old. We were using 8 dimmers with 8ch each to control our standard lightning (PARS, fresnels and etc.) and recently got some moving head, leds, fog machines and etc.

 

I was trying to add to two dimmers that are missing to the console but not sure how to do it since when I try to patch it, I have to press one of the current 48ch and that replace the old setup.

 

How should be able to add more dimmers to the console?

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

For more dimmer channels than the 48 channel faders provided, you have to patch them as fixtures.

 

To do this press SETUP -> Add Fixtures -> Generic -> 8bit Dimmer -> Next Available Address->

Now click and hold the the first MFK, and then press the sixteenth to add in your 16 dimmer channels. The console will then automatically patch these in 1 to 1.

 

To add your movers, LEDs and smoke machines, do exactly the same process using their specific fixture files in the library and matching their DMX address. You can then patch them on a different page of MFKs.

 

Once you've finished patching, come out of Setup by pressing SETUP again, and then click FIXTURES. You will then see all of your patched fixtures on whatever page you patched them to.

 

To control them click on the MFK of the fixture you want, and you will have the ability to manually bring up its intensity with the encoder wheel.

 

Hope this helps

Intensity is found under the Position attribute.

Press this and Intensity will be on the Middle finger wheel.
