  1. Thanks for all your help so far Paul! So another thing say I had 2 Chilli 24s (16amps) for generics and a Chilli Pro 0410HF to control the sodiums and flories and they were all linked together via chillinet could I have on my wall panel (say 5 options) 2 memories from the 0410HF's (one for putting on all the sodiums and one for putting on all the florries) and 3 memories from the 2 24 channel dimmers (for different General Cover washes). Is it possible to mix and match like that?? Ta, Sam
  2. So if I had the 0410HF verisons could i connect these to my standard dimmers (if they were chillis) by the Chillinet concept?? Thanks for your help so far, Sam
  3. Hiya All, I have seen this post on the site by NZ and wanted some more explanation if possible! So would the following scenario be possible: If say i had 4 sets of Halogen and flourescent Working lights and a series of sodium Auditorium working lights (different from house the house lights which go through the dimmer) could I have wall panels (i.e. switches) to turn these on and off but also be able to turn them on/ off from the desk via DMX. Also would I be able to have wall panels that allow you to call up pre-programmed (saved on the dimmers not on the desk). For example G
  4. Dont forget the new service from Peers Shepard- Stage Link! They host photos! Sam
  5. They are lovely desks, great support from the manufacturer and loads of great features which are very easy to pick up. A buncg of generics and the possbilility of some moving lights is the ideal situation to use a fat frog! Sam
  6. Another question, is there going to be a phantom frog II, its unlikly Ill get my hand on the desk when it comed out, for a while however I would like to play before. Sam
  7. My question is would a very comeptent Frog (1) user be able to work the basics (program a cue, patch etc) on a frog 2 if they were just plonked in front of the desk. Also I know this is a bit of a weird question but how long a products normally out before big hire companies (e.g. StaGE lx) pick them up and hire them out?? Sam
  8. Hiya, Someone on another forum brought the topic up and actually comming to think of it, it would be a very handy thing to do. If someone else has mentioned this before (I couldnt find anything) then appologies. At the moment you can only indervidualy save Beamshape/ Colour etc. on there own however on other boards you can actually select the atributes within these broad areas. For example you can just save the rotation to a sub. I hope you all get what i mean! The way this is implimented in the Pearl is that you only record any channel you have altered (played with). So if you on
  9. Hiya paul, I currently own a copy of WYSIWYG Design, can you explain to me how you would make this work if i upgraded the software and bought the dongle. WOuld I beable to use phantom and then it passes the data out through the dongle?? Thanks Sam
  10. The other way I would suggest is as follows: Set the board to Partial Programming (for really detailed instructions on how to set it and how to program using this sort of programming look in the manual RTFM!!). On Each sub page record a different thing. For example: Sub Page 1: Generic Colour Washes of stage Sub Page 2: Generic Specials (gobos etc. etc.) Sub Page 3: Positions for macs (and any other mls) Sub Page 4: Shape Generator Movements Sub Page 5: Gobos (macs/ mls) Sub Page 6: Rotating Gobos (macs/ mls) Sub Page 7: Colours for macs/ mls Sub Page 8: (Should really be
  11. Yep, you got it down to a tee there really. Its the only half decent controller for that range. Sam
  12. I think your room looks very nice. Are you running a little preset controller and a dimmer for those lot?? Sam
  13. it would be nice to beable to do it on the desk though!! Sam
  14. you are probably best to keep your cyc fixtures on a submaster and just note on your cue sheet, with LX4 or whatever GO Memory (chase) 42 and RAISE Sub 1/1 Sam
  15. I think the frog is just what you are looking for, has all the cue stack functionality you need for your sermans and the ability to use on the fly. Its very user friendly! One recommendation i will make to you is definately use it with a monitor and keyboard, it makes it into a whole different desk! One thing to point out though will you need a bull frog- i.e. are you looking to up the amount of fixtures dramatically in the near future. You may get away with a fat frog or at the very least a leap frog?? something to think about Sam
  16. Fair enough thanks for answering, i know nothing about manufacturing anything really so it was just a random question Sam
  17. Z88 are great with their updates, to be honest I dont think i would have bought a frog when they first came out but now with all the new features definitely. Sam
  18. I know this may sound crazy but couldnt zero88 make orders to specification for instance you would have a basic frog II at £x then for LCD buttons you add £y, if you want another dmx universe its you addd £z etc. Sam
  19. or like the maxxyz turn the flash buttons into small text displays Sam
  20. good question- i dont know why i said black and red it was v late last night Sam
  21. Just an Idea but as after plasa there will be so much convosation about the new desk then why dont you guys start a new FROG II forum (all red and black and sleak). Or if you couldnt do that at least add a FROG II bit on here! justs saves us getting confused with our frogs! Sam
  22. ICE i think that the faders are submasters (or assignable to generic channels) as it has a numeric keypad. I imagine to program it will be like the Illusion: i.e. 1 THRU 6 @ 100%, 5 & 7 & 8 @ 75%, 1 @ FULL etc. etc. Sam
  23. if the shutter was controlled in the BRIGHTNESS part then you would not be able to assign a pallette to it as you can only use palletes when working with colour beamshape and position. Just a thought Sam
