Hi Labby,

What mode is the star cloth operating in? How many RGB sections of control does it require? Do you want it assigned as a fixture, or as fader per channel control?

To assign faders, first, you’ll need to unpatch channels 31 through to however many available fixtures you need. To do this tap SETUP -> Press and gold fixture 31 and tap the lady you wish to get rid of to multi select. Then tap DELETE. Then go to Add Fixtures, find the Star Cloth, and then click next. Press and hold 31, and tap the last fixture number. Set the DMX address to 250, and click finish. 

You will then be able to control your Star Cloth. Going to SPECIAL -> Button Function -> Select will enable you to control the Red, Green and blue cells of the fixture. 

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

hi i tried to follow your instructions but still no luck, entered setup and selected faders 31-35 which is where it was before, pressed delete but nothing happened.  i have attached the manual that i think is the correct one for my cloth. everything else has patched in and is working its just getting this onto the faders that i cant do. i looked in the manual for the desk but still no luck. any help would be appreciated.

Hi Labby, 

Looking at the fixture's manual you will probably be best to control the star cloth as a fader per channel. Therefore to patch a single star cloth patch 5 dimmer channels onto your faders. If you went to Delete fixtures 31-35 and nothing happened, this means they are already unpatched, and ready for you to add new fixtures to. Therefore tap Add Fixtures, tap Next, and now press and hold fader button 31 and tap fader button 35. Enter the DMX address, and click finish. 

From the manual it looks like if you put channel 5 to full, channels 1-4 then become your 4 zone intensities. Therefore after coming out of Setup, push fader 35 to full, and you then should find 31-34 can control your zones. If you wish, you can configure channel 35 to stay at full by default. To do this push the fader to full, tap RECORD, press HOME, and choose "Defaults" from the MFKs. 

Hope that helps, 

Edward
