Submasters beyond 24 on Jester ML48.

Recommended Posts

Hi folks

Please forgive me if the following scenario is ridiculous and a problem of my own making:

My school possesses a Jester ML48 and we have a dance show with 27 dances coming up.

I've programmed the first 24 submasters with scenes the first 15 or so acts. (I'm not sure if I have been wasteful here as the whole lighting concept is really new to me?)

Is there such a thing as submaster 25-48 I can use to programme the scenes for remaining dances and if so please can you help advise how I access it?

Regards
​Marty

Hi Marty,

 

That is a common way to run shows, the alternative is to have all of your scenes programmed in cue list format, however Submasters control is probably best for more on-the-fly operating.

 

To access Submasters 25-48 you can program them in PROGRAM mode in the usual way. For example in PROGRAM mode, set up your lighting state, press fader 25 for example, and press the red PROGRAM button. Your state will be programmed to Submaster 25.

 

To access your programming, enter RUN mode (pressing MODE once from PROGRAM mode) and the Submasters will be moved to the bottom row of faders. To the right of fader 48 (Submasters 24) there is a page button (PAGE B ). Press this and it will change the page to Submasters 25-48. This is similar to PAGE A control to the right of the top row of faders, which can be used within RUN mode to manually bring up your channel faders.

 

Hope this helps, any queries let me know.

Hi Edward

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

It's the point when I'm in program mode, I don't understand how to select fader 25 after configuring my lighting state.

There are only 24 physical faders on the desk.

I'm not in front of the desk at present so I've loaded up the phantom software but still to no avail.

Is it a combination button press or something?

Regards

I think I get now.

Something to do with 20 pages x 24 submasters.

I've been using page 1, submasters 1-24 and I think it is possible to access page 2 etc whilst in program mode using the page B button.

Thank you for the little sanity check!

Regards

Hi Marty,

 

When in PROGRAM mode, all fader flash buttons (not just the bottom row) refer to their respective Submaster select button. Eg Flash button 1 is Submaster one select, Flash button 30 is Submaster 30 select. You will see this taking effect if you have an external monitor connected.

 

Therefore in PROGRAM mode you don't have to worry about what page you're on, only in RUN mode do you need to page between Submasters 1-24 and 25-48.

 

You then have 20 pages of these 48 Submasters. To select a different page, press PAGE B, and then use the MFK page up and down buttons to change page.
