    Any documentation about Midi on FLX?

    Thanks Edward. I'll give this some thought while I wait for my FLX to be delivered. The Congo Jnr I have to endure on a regular basis has 40 PB faders and I try to avoid paging but I can select movers & trigger palettes on the screen with a mouse which is a bit clunky and doesn't provide a fade time. I'm guessing the FLX won't let me execute more than one cue from the master PB at the same time (why would it after all) but with Load and Go commands I should get part way to what I want. There's also master fade time and selecting groups/palettes from the screen to explore. I'm confident I'll find a way to busk that will suit me - especially with the promised midi notes in the next OS version. Never been dissapointed by Zero 88 yet 😊. The wing is a possibility but the additional expense is probably too much. Just a thought... If you could trigger macros with Midi you'd get more flexibility. I'm sure you've thought of that yourselves but maybe one day???

    Solution Playback/Submaster issues

    Hi Simon, This sounds as though the playback's Intensity Mixing and the Fader Function have been changed. The default Intensity Mix for a playback is HTP. It sounds however like yours may be LTP, meaning that when you raise a playback, fixtures controlled by this playback will go to the intensity level of this playback, rather than mix. The default Fader Function is HTP Master, meaning the fader will scale the intensity of the currently active cue. Other options allow for the fader movement to advance the cues. All of these settings can be found in the Playback Settings, by holding SETUP and tapping the Playback you wish to configure. You are more than welcome to drop us an email to support@zero88.com with a copy of your show file, and one of the team will be able to take a look and see where the issue may be. Any queries just let me know. Edward

    Hi Mark, As Kevin mention, ZerOS currently handles colour mixing support for CMY, or RGBW colour mixing. The main reason for this is best understood in terms of a colour picker- along the top of the picker are points where there is pure red at full, pure green at full, and pure blue at full. White is then added in with the Y axis of the colour picker. The question is, where to put these other LED emitters in the picker, and how will these effect the levels of RGBW. This is something we are working on, to ensure that the most accurate amount of colour control is available with emitters other than RGBW. For now, you will therefore have to use the encoders to dial these parameters in - this is where your palettes will come in very handy, as if you find a filter you like, you can then tweak the levels of the other emitters, to make the colour richer or more subtle, and record as a palette. Hope this helps, any queries let me know. Edward

    Overall master fader

    Hi LisaEkbom, Any empty playback can be configured to be a Grand Master, it doesn’t have to be the Master Playback. If you’d like the Master Playback to be a Grand Master, copy your existing playback to an empty playback by tapping Z/Shift -> Copy -> Tap the Master Playback -> Tap a flashing empty playback to copy to. Then tap DELETE -> tap your Master Playback, then hold SETUP + tap your Master Playback. You can then choose Grand Master from the options and click OK. To go back and view your cue stack again, hold VIEW and tap the Playback button you copied to. If you don’t feel confident deleting playbacks, make sure you save a copy of your show first to a USB stick, then if you Delete the wrong playback you can simply load your show file back in. Hope this helps Edward

    Prolights Eclipse Fresnel, is it beyond an upgrade or just a question of waiting?

    If i already have my whole show recorded on the Master Playback, can I still change it to Grand Master?

    Solution Playback/Submaster issues

    Does anyone else experience issues with the latest update to ZerOS on the Solution desk whereby the Submasters (or Playbacks as they are now) and master Go button do not operate as expected? I can have 3 or 4 subs loaded, all with identical settings but some will operate as subs, allowing 2 channels or states to be run together but another one will take over and blackout the first. eg Houselights on one sub and a stage preset on another, with maybe some more circuits on a third. Does the state on the sub need to be recorded with Tracking? Sometimes turning the desk off and restarting it, or saving to usb and reloading seems to solve the problem. Also, the Master Go button would not advance and trigger cues although the fader would operate to move through the cues. I have double checked in Settings and all would appear to be correct. Again, sometimes reloading a show, or turning desk off and on again seems to make a difference. It all seems a bit random and I am now starting to think there may be a firmware or desk issue. Any ideas? Simon

    I think you will for a (fair) while until the ZerOS colour mapper improves support for such LED fixtures. At the moment it can map to R/G/B/W LED elements. Anything on top you'll have to dial in yourself and create a colour palette. Is it an ETC LED fresnel?
  12. Hi My LED Fresnel has these colours: red, orange, green, royal blue, blue, lime I am not sure how to convert the standard RGB filter board and colour picker to take advantage of this colour set up. I seem to be doing a lot of manual colour selection! Any clues? Thanks MArk

    Hi Mark, No problem, I’ll take a look into this for you. Edward

    Copy Cues

    Hi Christian, If you tap Z/Shift -> Copy, there is a numpad in the Copy window you can use to define cues. You can also use an external keyboard for this if you wish. Edward

    Thanks a quick reference sheet would be brilliant, does not need to include the setup phase, but to include this too please http://support.zero88.com/Legacy-Products/Legacy-Consoles/Legacy-ZerOS/ORB-XF/1011707591/What-does-the-Output-Window-show.htm Plus a quick bit about Cues and Tracking as that catches everyone out and they end up in a mess!

    Hi Edward thanks for responding. How do i instigate the syntax/command line please? cheers christian

    Updated Manual

    Hi Mark, We don’t have a Quick Reference sheet for FLX. But this is definitely something we can look to create. What we do have is a FLX syntax overview available here... http://support.zero88.com/1011387501 Hope this helps, if there’s anything I can do to help let me know. Edward

    Updated Manual

    Thanks for the above. I found this in the repositories of your site. It is not 100% right, as it is for a different desk (Orb) but very useful: https://zero88.com/manuals/orb_quick_reference_sheet_issue_1.pdf Any chance of a full one for the FLX? It saves a lot of time when introducing people to the desk!

    Any documentation about Midi on FLX?

    Hi David, Welcome to the Zero 88 Forum, really glad to hear you've joined the community and have ordered a FLX. Regarding MIDI, FLX currently supports MIDI Time Code (MTC), and MIDI Show Control (MSC) protocols. In the next software update coming in a couple of months time, MIDI Notes will also be supported. MIDI Time Code can be used to trigger any cue in any playback on the console. MIDI Show Control can be used to trigger any cue in the Master Playback. For a list of MIDI information, take a look at the article below... http://support.zero88.com/990063141 If there's any extra information you think would be useful in this article, do let me know and I'll be able to add this in. Have you seen the ZerOS WING... https://zero88.com/products/consoles/wing/index.shtml For extra hands-on control this may be worth considering, as even if you don't want the extra faders, this does give you an additional 24 buttons you can program lighting states and macros to. It is also worth mentioning the UDKs can be paged, giving you 40 different UDKs in total (10 pages of 4). I haven't personally heard/seen any FLX users using MIDI button panels to gain extra playback buttons, however this is possible. If you have any further queries, just let me know. Edward

    ZerOS 7.9.5

    Hi Chris, I can confirm MIDI Notes functionality will be coming to FLX in ZerOS 7.9.5. (This is a part of software reference code ZOS-8550). All the best, Edward

    Any documentation about Midi on FLX?

    You never forget your first love and, discounting flirting with resistance dimmers and a later dalliance with Strand Mini 2's, that would make mine a Sirius (then, later, a Bullfrog until my main venue replaced it). With that in mind I'm pleased to say that I have just ordered my very own FLX. Now, until/unless a button wing becomes available, I'm hoping to use a Midi controller instead but, despite searching the website, support FAQS and everything Google has returned elsewhere, I can't find any detailed information about what you can trigger with Midi show control and what Midi commands you'd use to do it. I get that a controller with Midi DIN output or a good quality USB to Midi link is needed but the little other information I've found is sparse and contradictory. I know there are UDK's and I have plans for them as well as for the remote input socket and I will be using a touch screen and probably a tablet as well but there's no substitute in my mind for physical controls when you want a colour change or a can-can in a hurry. (Mostly I light bands and have to busk.) Is there anything out there already? Could something be put together and published? (I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one looking for it.). Ideally a full description so I can see the possibilities rather than suggestions for the specific examples above.

    Fixture profile delete

    Hi Alex, This functionality won’t be implemented in ZerOS 7.9.5. This is definitely something we’re still looking into, that we’ll include when we make big changes to the Fixture Library. Currently your best bet is to make sure you use a numbering system on custom fixtures, to avoid duplicate names. All the best, Edward
