  1. I may have spoken too soon. I'll do some more testing and start a new thread.
  2. Hi Edward, thanks for your reply. The DMX IN feed came from the THRU of a DMX splitter, the IN of which came from desk DMX OUT 2. One of the four splitter outputs is cabled off to a pair of DMX LED drivers and 120 ohm terminated. So I wouldn’t have expected to see any DMX signal but I suspect interference as one of the tapes is very flickery at low levels (a second one with identical components on the other side of the hall is fine) and it is an RDM capable splitter so pickup might be possible. As an aside, fixture 1 on DMX Universe 1 was flickering during the test (until I pulled t
  3. I had a play with the test mode on my desk. I seemed to be getting continuous slow random press and release messages in between the genuine key presses but eventually noticed that there was some level movement on my DMX IN signal (I’m not certain what from though, the DMX 2 goes into an RDM splitter and on to a couple of led driver decoders with a termination. I’ll explore if there is some noise pickup offline). When I pulled out the DMX IN cable all keypress messages stopped (other than genuine ones). The faders and buttons seem to be well behaved, however I was puzzled as to what the fo

    Fader Calibration

    Thanks Edward. It didn’t occur to me that Preset mode would still work as I was thinking in terms of it being DMX channels 1 to 24 (or 48 in wide). Sad to see Solution has now been manufacture discontinued but I assume future Zeros releases will continue to recognise it.

    Fader Calibration

    As an aside, does the test mode apply to Leapfrog/Solution? I’m not back in front of the desk until Monday. I have the opposite problem that a few faders creep up to 1% which now that I have fixtures 1 - 48 defined means if the lights are off they highlight red and get inhibited. I assume the resolution is the same.
  6. Running 7.9.7 as stable, still adding to the rig and designing offline using Visualiser between my weekly site visits in lockdown. Running 7.9.8 as development for familiarity and forthcoming upgrade of main desk (probably once .81 drops). Still fiddling with fixture files. Ian
  7. I was wondering if it is actually possible to install two instances of phantom ZerOS on the same PC, namely 7.9.7 and 7.9.8? I have a laptop and tablet on the go at present but it would be more convenient to use just the one as the tablet is somewhat restrictive. However I don't want to waste time trying it out to no avail or doing split boot-ups. Thanks in anticipation for your reply.
  8. Edward, I tried the presets to playbacks quickly yesterday, using five faders patched to DMX universe 2 channels set to trigger five playbacks. It sort-of worked but some behaviour was not quite as expected, mainly on playbacks with colour only attributes and fader follow set. It seemed to be fine via the actual playback faders but via the triggering they went up OK but stayed up. I cannot emulate this on Phantom ZerOs due to the inability to connect DMX OUT to IN to fire the triggers. However I will look more closely when next in the venue as it might have been something I overlooked. As
  9. Edward, I assume that if I route the DMX OUT to DMX IN via a splitter in the above scenario, the channels I don't use to trigger Playbacks are available to route on to fixtures if desired?
  10. Thanks Edward, that explains the behaviour experienced and some tips for getting round it.
  11. Hi guys, I have been recreating my fixture profiles to make them a bit more streamlined and remove unwanted functionality. All is now working well, however I have noticed that regardless of what order I set the wheels, my Leapfrog 48 just sets them the way it wants to. For example, if I want red/green/blue on colour set 1 and blank/blank/white on colour set 2, it always puts white on set 1 first wheel. I'm running 7.9.7 with editor 2.6. Any ideas guys?
  12. No, that was all new to me, but thanks for the tip, I'll see if I can think of a use for it.
  13. I thought I saw somewhere in the forum (or maybe another forum) that being able to place a playback onto channel faders 1-48 as well as the ten paged MFF playbacks was coming on software. 7.9.x for Solution (and LeapFrog) desks. Is this actually the case or is this just wishful thinking? I realise I can do this with a Zeros Wing but that is a four figure sum more usefully spent elsewhere. Thanks, Ian
  14. I had seen that article but hadn't specifically tried the S version, thanks for the tip.
  15. I had a quick try-out with this without issue on my PC. However, I tried converting a couple of legacy fixtures and it suggested other fixtures that were similar but not identical. (Just low end washes and movers but the same physical looking fixture can have several arrangements of the attributes). What will the road map be on replacing the fixture editor tool, which I assume will not work with the new library? Thanks, Ian
