    Touchscreen monitors

    Hi Edward, Thanks for the reply. No it wasn't one on the list that's what prompted the question but there are a couple Ilyamas . I was looking to see what was available on ebay. I will let you know how I get on. Chris
  2. I'm looking for FLX operators in the Scottish Borders/ Edinburgh/ Midlothian area to join a small pool of tech staff with the ability to fault find DMX errors etc to busk small rock shows in a 300 cap venue with a house lighting rig in the Scottish Borders. Drop me a message and I will email you with more info Chris

    Touchscreen monitors

    I'm thinking of taking a punt on a second-hand touchscreen monitor on the Bay of E. I can see that the list of compatible monitors is fairly small. Is the general feeling that most touchscreens that work with (for example) windows 10 would probably be compatible? Or are users finding that hardly any monitors other than the listed ones are compatible? Chris

    Identifying effects on playbacks

    Hi Folks, See attached photo. I have chosen a group of LED washes and on my external monitor I can see the current setting for each fixture in the group. Playback 6 introduces a colour cycle to the fixtures. where do I see how this colour cycle is being generated? I expect it's an effect but where do I see what effects are attributed to each playback? (interestingly when playback 6 introduces the colour cycle the visible current fixture colour settings don't appear to change on the monitor ) Cheers Chris

    Midi note compatibility

    Hi Zero88 team, Can you confirm if you are intending to develop midi note capability for the FLX? Chris

    Remote switches

    Hi Edward, thanks that's great. I will give that a try in the next few days. This is a steep learning curve for me. When I started at this venue in Sept with no proper lighting background we had an old 24ch Strand desk running D54 protocol, 12 par cans and 4 Fresnels. I'm dragging it kicking and screaming in to the current century We have now added DMX dimmers, the FLX, Mac 250 Entours, LED PARs and a couple of LED multi beam effect fixtures. I will be busking my first show for a touring band on the 29th so fingers crossed. Cheers Chris

    Remote switches

    I'm on a roll with the forum posts today! I made up a remote switch box this afternoon with parts from CPC and ebay(including a D sub socket with screw connectors which saved some fiddly soldering) In "Inputs and Outputs" I enabled switch 1 to trigger a playback that contains a chase. I press the switch(A momentary switch) and the chase runs but as the fader is at 0 there is no intensity and therefore no light (I can see the steps in the chase being displayed as they cycle round) the chase continues even after the button Is released. If I wanted a chase to run at full intensity only while the button is pressed is this a job for a Macro or is there some other way to achieve this? Thanks Chris

    Relationship between playbacks sharing the same MFF

    Thanks, Mike and Edward, Spot on. Page hold over was set to Enabled. Changed it to disabled and all sorted now. Thanks for the help Chris
  14. Until today I have run all my shows on a single page of playbacks. On using two pages for the first time I came up with an issue that probably has a simple solution. Example- Playback 1 on page 1 has a nice cue stack of LED washes. The MFF is left sitting at max on one of the cues. I then move to page 2 of the playbacks where I have a chase on a different group of fixtures recorded on playback 25. I want to keep the wash recorded on playback 1 running but as I lower the MFF controlling playback 25 the wash from playback 1 is dimmed then the chase recorded on playback 25 is played back when the fader is raised again. Any pointers? Cheers Chris

    Martin Mac 250 Entours

    Hi Edward, Thanks for the quick reply. I will give Blue Room a go. I've not recorded any macros yet so I will have a go at that tomorrow. Chris
