Use DMX-in to control playback.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if it is possible to use a second desk and use DMX-in to control playbacks? I love to work with as less playback-pages as possible.

Hello,

Yes that is possible. DMX In can either be used to remotely control the intensities of patched fixtures, or to remotely control Playbacks.

This can be configured in SETUP -> Inputs & Outputs -> DMX In Control Playback -> Add. You can then add as many Playbacks that you want to be triggered, and configure their remote DMX address.

If you want more hands on faders without needing to change page, you can also patch unused channel faders to an unused DMX universe, and plug the Output of this universe into the DMX In. These channel faders can then be used as Playback control.

Hope that helps and makes sense, any queries let me know.

Hi Edward,

Thanks for the quick reply! This is very helpfull. If I understand correcly you basically loop for instance DMX-out 4 to DMX-in? 

Thanks, Wytse

Hi Wytse,

Yes that’s exactly right. For example if you’re not using any of the preset B channel faders, patch them to Universe 4 starting at DMX 1, loop a DMX cable from DMX Out 4 to the DMX in, and then assign DMX In to trigger the Playbacks you want access to on other pages. The bottom row of channel faders are then extra Playback controls. 

Hope that helps

Edward
