    MIDI Timecode problems

    So unfortunately it seems I spoke too soon - MIDI timecode stopped working today during a programming session, and when I checked the read out on the console it was stuck on the time that the timecode failed, rather than displaying 'not connected' or whatever else. I can 100% confirm that my Motu Fastlane was functioning correctly and still giving out time code correctly. Just one other thing while I'm here - I'm struggling to program a something. Say for example I've got two moving heads and I applied a figure of 8 effect to them and hit record to a new cue in my stack (tracking enabled)

    MIDI Timecode problems

    Hi again, Apologies it's taken me so long to get back to this! We are now in the stages of preparing for our annual dance show, so I'll be more active here now. I updated the desk a while back to (will update to latest version again soon) and have been testing timecode again, this time without any problems. The issue I had with multiple stacks triggering doesn't appear to happen anymore, and I've had timecode running through the console without it ignoring it for quite a while now. I've yet to create a big cue stack and test it like I would during a show, but first signs seem to b

    MIDI Timecode problems

    Hi guys - apologies for bringing back up an old thread. I've been away from the console for quite some time, so wondered if there was any update on a solution for this? Thanks, and if you want me to try anything do let me know

    MIDI Timecode problems

    Managed to capture the second issue I mentioned here in action - https://photos.app.goo.gl/d5J9wPZ5RVvrHSAi9 This was created on the desk after a factory reset.
  5. Hi all, Been having two strange issues with MIDI timecode and our FLX console. The setup I have is as follows: Timecode coming out of an application called 'Timelord' -> into a Motu Fastlane USB -> connected to the MIDI port on the console. MIDI is being sent at 30fps and the console is set to receive it at 30 fps. The first issue I am having is that after a certain amount of time (usually 30 mins ish, although this is very inconsistent and has previously done it within a few minutes of turning the console on) the console starts to completely ignore the MIDI timecode thats
  6. Hi all, Need a bit of help with programming a specific chase I need - this make take a bit of explaining, but hopefully it'll make sense. So I've got four moving lights, and I want to create a chase that instantly puts the intensity to 100%, then fades back down to say 0% on each light one after another (position and other attributes are not needed). Sounds simple, however I need to co-ordinate when the lights snap to 100% with the BPM of a song. So on each beat, a fixture will be set to 100% then immediately after it will start to fade down to 0%, until in four beats time where it w
  7. Hi all, Got a few questions about MIDI time code. My school have an upcoming dance show where we want to sync audio tracks coming from a PC with lighting on the FLX. There will be around 15 songs (about 3 mins each) and each song's lighting cues will be stored in a separate playback on the FLX. The best way to do this seems like MIDI timecode. Firstly, can anyone recommend a USB MIDI interface that would be suitable for this? Jon briefly mentions here that (although not ideal) those cheap USB MIDI cables seem to work for MTC, but not MSC (which is ok as that's not what we're using).
