Several questions about 7.9.2

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, i'm new in the forum, i'm french from Aix en Provence so excuse me for my bad english.

 

I've just updated the desk to 7.9.2, and there are many things that i don't understand:

 

1- what is the difference between the green & red colors on the buttons in the "playback settings window"

 

2- after recording a cue, it's not possible to "playback" it by raising up the fader. I must flash the "playback" button first, and then i can playback the cue by raising up the fader. Is it normal ? Am i doing something wrong ? Is it a "bug" ?

 

3- I record a cue in the playback 6 (ex: 5 linearled rgbw full blue).

I clear all twice. I play it, it works.

I record a another cue in the playback 7 (ex: same 5 linearled rgbw full red).

I clear all once again. I play it, it works.

but the playback 6 is not "blue" anymore and has become "red" !!!

Any idea ?

 

4-Is it possible to specify to the desk that a dimmer is a "on/off" simple switch (as i do with my ADB rack circuit which is concerned) so that i can use the "blackout" key without switching off my "moving heads" at the same time ?

 

Waiting for your help... thank you all

Hi Thierry,

 

Welcome to the forum!

 

1- There isn't any green on buttons within the Playback Settings window in ZerOS 7.9.2. Where you will see red/green options is within the Record Options and Update Options pop ups. In these there is a button for each attribute. When the button is Blue it means that attribute won't get recorded. Tap again to go red, and it means only tagged parameters within the attribute will get recorded, and tap it again and it will go Green, which will record all parameters within that attribute.

 

2- If you are using a show file from a previous version of ZerOS, the Playback defaults are set to "Trigger on Raise Disabled" and "Release on Lower Disabled". To get the desired effect, you will need to enable this. Therefore hold SETUP + tap the playback buttons of your already programmed playbacks -> Raise and Lower -> Enable trigger on raise and release on lower. You can then OK this, press SETUP -> Defaults -> Cue Stack Defaults -> Raise and Lower -> Enable Trigger on raise and release on lower.

 

3- This sounds like Playback 7 didn't release before you played Playback 6 again. Therefore setting trigger on raise and release on lower as detailed above should sort that.

 

4- There are a couple of options for this. The first option is to park the channels at full. To do this hold SETUP + press INSERT. Using the drop down select "Park", and using the Shifted drop down select "Unpark". Then snap your mover power dimmer channel faders to full, press SPECIAL -> Button Function Select -> Select your mover channels using the buttons under the faders, and then press INSERT (Park). You can then press SPECIAL and change the buttons back to flash if you wish. These channels will now be Parked at full until you select them again, and hold SHIFT + INSERT to unpark them. This won't be effected by the Grand Master.

Alternatively you can patch Relay channels in place of these dimmer channels. To do this press SETUP -> Patch Wizard -> Generic Fixtures -> Relay -> DMX Address -> Tap the MFKs to put them on. Then exit SETUP, select these relays using the FIXTURE MFKs, and you can then tap BEAMSHAPE, and you will be able to turn the relay on and off using the encoders. Set it to fully on, and then tap RECORD -> BEAMSHAPE, and then an empty Beamshape palette. The relay On will then be recorded there, and you can also record a palette with it switched off too. This will not get effected by the Grand Master/Blackout.

 

Hope that helps, any queries let me know.

 

Kind regards

Edward

Hi Edward, and thank you for your attention.

 

1 - you're right, i meant "record options", i'll make some tries...

 

2 - I have no problem with my old show and the memories in my old submasters, just an issue with the new cues, i'll make some tries...

 

3 - I'll see if managing n°2 resolves something...

 

4 - I thought "relay" was made for this but was not sure, i'll make some tries...

 

I'll let you know as soon as i can ...

 

let's go and switch on the beast...

 

regards,

 

Thierry

I'm back again !!!

 

1 - OK

2 - OK

3 - OK

4 - OK with the "park / unpark" way, i'll try later your "MFK relay" method which is, i think, the more logical

 

So far so good, you saved my life :)

 

The problem is that i can't be at 100% with my brain on this machine cause i need to manage an ascender32 and three PC's at the same time, and take care of the powerpoints, keynotes, videos... with two arms and only one head... but i'm lucky, there's someone at the soundboard...

So i need to optimize the best i can

 

thank you so much, i'll be soon back with other problems :)

 

regards

Glad that's helped.

 

With Solution consoles you do have the option to purchase a Remote Triggers expansion card.

Then once you have your Solution programmed, using MIDI you could trigger the Solution from your computers - that may save having to have a third arm!

 

Kind regards

Edward
