    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

    red, orange, green, royal blue, blue, lime

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    Flxs External Monitor

    Hi Christian, To view different playbacks in the cue list window, make sure your faders are in Playbacks function, then hold VIEW and tap the playback's button you wish to view. This will then bring the cues stored on this playback into the cue list window. A single press of VIEW will show you your faders window, rather than cue list. If you are finding this is only changing what is displayed on the internal touchscreen, press SETUP -> System Settings -> External Monitor -> Enabled. This will then allow the VIEW key to adjust the external monitor. Hope this helps, any queries let me know. Edward

    Compose on Sub-masters / Program to Memory?

    Hi Nick, No this isn't possible. What you can do however is playback a Submaster in Run mode, hold SHIFT and tap the Submasters button, tap EDIT, and then add in any extra channels or fixture's to create your scene. Then use the Up/Down arrows to choose the memory to program, and hit the red PROGRAM button to store. You will then be taken back to Run mode. This is also the method you can use to copy submasters to memories and vice-versa. Hope this helps, Edward

    Sub-Master Flash

    Hi Benjamin, If you mean the LCD immediately to the right of the Page Up and Down buttons, then this is your main issue, as this LCD and these MFKs (Multi-Function Keys) are where the Submaster flash buttons are configured. When the console is in Run mode (press MODE if you're in Program, press and hold MODE if you're in Preset), tap SPECIAL, and the first MFK LCD allows you to set the button function. The first MFK button will toggle the console between the buttons being disabled, and the buttons being flash. The second will toggle between Solo and Latch, and third will toggle between Go/Step, and Beat. You should find despite the screen not working that you can still use the buttons to change the option. The link below will take you to the article for Jester TLXtra, attached to which is a download for Phantom Jester, which is what the screenshot above is taken from. This is software that allows a PC to emulate Jester consoles, which should help determine what you should be seeing on this LCD screen! http://support.zero88.com/975200381 To get the console repaired, just drop us an email to support@zero88.com, and one of the team will advise on the best route to go down. Hope this helps, any queries let me know. Edward

    ZerOS 7.9.5

    Hi Chris, Happy New Year. ZerOS 7.9.5 is still work in progress at this stage. The aim was to release by the end of 2018, however there was a lot of back-end networking work in the software that was necessary, and so this pushed the release date back. We haven't put a new date on this yet, but are hoping within Q1 of this year. We've been releasing public beta versions fairly regularly, and the feedback is positive. If you have any queries do let me know, or drop me an email. Edward

    RDM problem

    Hi Pete, Great really glad to hear it. That sentence in the manual is very true, of any lighting console in fact. The more you use it you'll find your own style of using the console, and become quicker as you do. No you're not at all. Any queries please feel free to just post on the forum, as not only will it help you getting a response from other users, but these threads will also help any people searching similar queries in future.

    RDM problem

    Hi Pete, If you wish to turn off RDM, tap SETUP -> Inputs & Outputs -> RigSync -> Disabled. With RigSync enabled, when you boot the console it will discover any RDM fixtures, which is why it is then patching them back in. That Selecon fixture isn't in our fixture library, and therefore the console is having to create a fixture file from the RDM information it receives. However we are able to make a fixture file with RDM information present, that will allow the fixture to be patched and linked to the fixture file correctly. Therefore if you send us an email to FixtureSupport@zero88.com with a link to the fixture's manual and request RDM information, one of the team will be able to make the file for you. As Erics has done in the past, he has used an ENTTEC device to determine to RDM information of the fixture, and then implemented that into a fixture file for the FLX S24. Hope this helps, any queries let me know. Edward

    How do I find my ZerOs version number?

    Great, in that case your software is up to date. ZerOS 7.9.5 will be released later this year. Edward

    How do I find my ZerOs version number?

    Hello, To find the software version tap Z/Shift -> System Information. This will open the Desk Info window, and in here is a line of text displaying Software Version. The current release software is ZerOS 7.9.4, available to download from our website here... https://zero88.com/forum/files/file/17-zeros-794/ Depending on the age of your FLX S24, you may find you are running ZerOS If so this is the latest for your console, and you will not be able to install ZerOS 7.9.4. Included in the software download are the ZerOS 7.9.4 release notes, which contain installation instructions. To install, download the software, extract/unzip the files, and then copy the ZerOS 7.9.4 OS USB Creator executable file to the root of a USB stick. Plug this USB stick into the console, tap SETUP -> Load File, and load the software update in. The console will then perform the software update. Software updates completely reset the console, so make sure you save your show file first if you need it- you will then be able to load it back into the console when the new software is installed. Hope this helps, any queries let me know. Edward

    Programmer Time

    No problem, any queries just let me know. Edward

    Programmer Time

    Hi Joe, Programmer Time can be assigned to any empty Playback fader. Rather than having to tap Z and use an encoder, you can then simply use the fader to control the time, and use the playback button to toggle it on or off. Instructions on how to do this can be found here... http://support.zero88.com/1011402011 Hope this helps, any queries let me know. Edward

    Playback with single cue fade down time?

    Yep that’s correct - hold SETUP and tap the playback’s button to enter the Settings, then tap Advanced. In here is an option to enter the playback name. You can also access the playback settings by tapping the on-screen playback fader in the Faders window, as this is the default function. Hope this helps, Edward
