  1. 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.

  2. 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?
  3. 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 direc
  4. I hadn't thought of laying the groups out like this before. Nice idea!
  5. 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.
  6. +1 to Simons request (in addition to auto palette for UV..!) Hopefully another request bumps it up the 'to do' list slightly. Thanks, Alex
  7. 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
  8. 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. C
  9. I second this, some sort of Excel/CSV output from the fixture schedule would be a great help
  10. 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?
  11. Great to hear that 7.9.6 and a new manual is 'very' close to release! I have been waiting for the new manual for ages!
  12. Zero88, Any update on a release date for the new FLX manuals? Cheers, Alex
  13. Hi, I have since been able to download it successfully (think it was on the bank holiday) and installed into the desk. Not sure if I was logged in at the time, but I assume I would have been..! Cheers
  14. Hi all, I have also just installed ZerOS 7.9.5 with the same issue. I spoke to Keith who has directed me to this post. The file below is no longer "available", please can you re-upload it? I also got an error during boot which may or may not be part of this common issue. Pictures attached for reference. Edward/Nathaniel, please can you forward these onto Keith for his info. Cheers, Alex
  15. Zero88 interestingly makes a move to quietly announce the release of ZeroOS 7.9.5, the Betapack 4, a ZerOS 1U Sever, and a new data distribution device. This was shared on their Facebook page by posting a link to an article written by LSi Online: https://www.lsionline.com/pl-s-zero-88-highlights-multifunctionality It sounds like we will hear more in the coming days as Prolight and Sound 2019 progresses. Watch this space as they say..!
  16. Currently starting to look into a LED matrix project, would be great for some functionality on the FLX to control this. I can imagine using multi-touch colour picker would be fun with a large matrix of LEDs!
  17. Hi Jon, On ZerOS, will installing the new fixture library overwrite and remove fixtures files that are not part of the library? Thanks, Alex
  18. Hi Zero 88, Having recently dabbled into creating a website, I have noticed neither the forum or the main Zero88 website has 'favicons'. Not a major issue, but it would make my favorites bar look a lot nicer than two blank boxes Cheers, Alex
  19. Hi Fred, This was recently asked in another sub forum: Sounds like we still have a short wait yet! Cheers, Alex
  20. Yes, this sounds perfect! If only it was so simple to implement haha. Cheers, Alex
  21. Hi Edward, Since struggling to re-order parameters on a large fixture file before reading this hint, is there any chance that the 'parameters' column could be a user editable cell? This would seems slightly more intuitive then the current method in my mind - and especially for new users to the software..! Just a thought, Cheers, Alex
  22. Hi Edward, I too am in a similar situation to ZeuS - with duplicates of fixture files I have modified to suit my preference. Has the feature to delete single fixture files been implemented yet, or can we expect it in ZerOS 7.9.5? Many thanks, Alex
