  1. It doesnt look like its a current product anymore, but I use the Iiyama ProLite T2252MTS-3. Multitouch works with no issues. https://iiyama.com/gl_en/products/prolite-t2252mts-b3/
  2. Thats great thanks Edward! The only one I've noted recently from training which I couldn't see on that page is: 'NAME' + Cue Number + Playback Button = Name Cue I also don't think the command string for 'NAME A GROUP, PALETTE OR PLAYBACK' is correct. I believe this should be: 'Name' + Group/Palette/Playback Button
  3. Hi everyone, Does anyone have a 'cheat sheet' for key strokes on FLX? (Or is there a page in the manual I have missed!) Having been to a few training course recently I've picked up a few new ones where holding 'Shift' and pressing a button will perform an alternative action. e.g. 1 Thru = Selects all fixtures, Shift+Record = Snapshot Cue, Shift+Copy = Move, Shift+Go = Snap to Cue, etc Thanks, Alex
  4. Hi Edden, I have managed to get SCS to trigger cues on the FLX (similar enough to your Solution console..!), however as Edward has stated above, you will require a USB to MIDI interface (and two MIDI cables) For reference I use the "M-AUDIO MIDISPORT 2x2 Anniversary Edition" however I'm sure almost any MIDI interface should work with SCS and Solution. Alex
  5. Thanks for the advice Edward, I've had a look into assigning the MTC on cues - this looks promising. Is there a deafult way to record a cue with the Trigger set to MIDI? My only thought I cant quite work out right now is if I cue all of track 1, and I have a few LX cues between track 1 and track 2, where is it best placed to have these cues? Would it still be on PB1, or onto the Master PB and cue with MSC? I understand MSC can only trigger the master PB?
  6. Hi all, Like all of us, I am trying to make the most of the time being stuck indoors, and adjusting to this new temporary way of life. I have finally dived into linking FLX to Capture 2020 (all be it the free trial version) (KB Ref: http://support.zero88.com/988883201) and I have had good success in getting things working. Side note: you can download a version of the ‘Dockhouse’ venue for Capture 2020 from the Capture website which works flawlessly with the FLX showfiles. I managed to create a blank Capture file and added in a few generic fixtures and got these controlled directly from Phantom ZerOS! After considering this a win, I have also looked into using Show Cue System (SCS) to produce MIDI Show Control (MSC) cues (Side note: SCS Professional at a minimum required) and how this integrates and controls ZerOS (KB Ref: http://support.zero88.com/990063141). Unfortunately my USB to MIDI device is currently stuck at the back of a storage unit so I am unable to physically test the link between SCS and FLX yet, but initial results from SCS also look positive. The local junior drama group I support are performing Addams Family (postponed until December) and this will have musical backing tracks rather than a live band. As always in local am-dram, there is never enough technical crew, so it is likely I will be running both LX and sound. To save myself juggling through both LX and sound cues I thought it is within the realms of possibility that I could pre-program the majority of the show and command the FLX completely via SCS. Using the backing tracks I can program MSC cues to trigger throughout the song on exactly the right beats all in SCS. For LX cues that are not within a musical number I am thinking I may either add additional MSC cues or have a local ‘GO’ button at the sound desk. I think Addams Family is a great show and I want to try and get a fantastic looking show by not compromising on LX cues if I have to run both LX and sound. Has anyone ever attempted anything similar in a musical setting, or any reasons why you wouldn’t recommend this at all – apart from it being a massive time sponge to pre-program! Appreciate all thoughts, Alex
  7. I hadn't thought of laying the groups out like this before. Nice idea!
  8. Hi Tom, Afraid I can't help with your macro question directly however I might try the following approach. Within the parameter of CH13, go to the 'Details' tab. In here create two positions. One to take you to your 'reset' position (values 200-209), and one back to 'default' (I assume 0). Once created these can be accessed by pressing the 'middle button' on the relevant encoder wheel. I have attached a screenshot for a similar set up for a prism, however you should be able to apply this to your situation. I should also be able to help with load fixtures into Phantom. Simply copy the fixture file into your 'My Documents' folder (this is where Phantom ZerOS is looking for files - or at least on my PC!) and go to the 'Load' page in setup. You should then be able to select your new fixture file and press load. Merry Christmas! Alex
  9. +1 to Simons request (in addition to auto palette for UV..!) Hopefully another request bumps it up the 'to do' list slightly. Thanks, Alex
  10. Hi Afx, I dont think this is exactly what you're looking for, but still useful! http://support.zero88.com/Legacy-Products/Legacy-Consoles/Legacy-ZerOS/ORB-XF/998481801/Can-I-plug-a-keyboard-into-my-console.htm Alex
  11. Hi guys, I'm trying to prepare my desk as much as possible before heading into the venue / or being front of the real desk. Is there a method on Phantom ZerOS to get into Playback settings, usually I would hold 'Setup' and press the playback if I was in front of the physical desk, but I can't work out if this is possible on Phantom? Also if trying to use any 'shifted' functions is also an issue. Pressing the shift key on my keyboard doesn't seem to interact with Phantom. Am I missing something obvious here? I have double checked to make sure Phantom is my 'active' window. Cheers, Alex
  12. I second this, some sort of Excel/CSV output from the fixture schedule would be a great help
  13. Very interesting, is this the same for FLX?
  14. Interesting to see the addition of 'Continuous' and 'Delta' DMX transmission; I haven't heard of this before. What is the benefit of switching to Delta transmission?
