  1. and what about below them... the line that says : BRI ABS COL ABS B/S ABS and POS REL? thanks gab
  2. i think we have forgotten to ask whether hes using one of the frogs, or the new Jester... surely it will be quite different... ? gab
  3. and when we do, can it have a little bit of a better search engine on it, as i can never find what i am looking for on Frogsupport without going through all the posts... Could be me not using the appropriate search prefixes.... gab
  4. haha yes very similar except something that would do that with the phantom frog or similar program and have a visualisation screen or something that you could effectively "draw" a setting round and would calculate the movement of the ml... Gab
  5. hiya, that would work for the same venue yes, but what if I want to use some ml;s is different venues, but I know the general setting of the stage and the truss that the ml sits on... Then I could averagely program the show at home or on the road and then adjust it at the venue... a simulator that would show where the light would fall, would be a real time saver. thanks Gab
  6. Hi, i have looked on the search on this wonderful forum for a while and found nothing that covered this idea, so i am asking,,, has anyone come accross a moving light simulator that would, for instance, tell you the dmx status of the 10 odd channels of a mac 500 and give you the ability to change these and see what change it made... thus one could jsut use the phantom frog to set up all the dmx channels at their levels and more or less have it right first time... It would make programming a duck easier for large shows with little time in the venue.. Thanks, Gab
  7. brill ok cheers for your help im sure it must have been that, ok no worries! thanks again gab
  8. i would find a submaster master very useful, as i do many live shows on the 48 channel fades of my fat frog, and use the A and B master faders as masters for those, submaster one would be very useful. maybe in future desks, or does the frog 2 have it? cheers Gab
  9. well what happened was someone knocked the monitor, and for some reason this triggered something weird on the desk, when one changes the function, for instance, the submasters or memories or preview, outputs the led's in them flash, as if its in test mode..., then pressing the submaster flash buttons does the same, press it it starts flashing, and press it again and it stops flashing. could it have been the knock, or is there something i'm missing... thankyou Gab

    wow, that really would be cool, some kind of 3.5 replacement usb port or something... so useful. cheers for the quick answer gab

    hiya, by "swapping the floppy disk drive for a USB port" are you still talking about the fatfrog series? because that would be amazingly helpful, as floppys are so unreliable. cheers

    Heres something novel, why not set your dimmers to "freeze DMX" when they lose signal, then unplug the desk from the dimmers when you want to "Park" the Generics... admittantly this won't work for the ML's but if thats what you want... ( i know it can be done on our Chilli Pro's... gab
  13. Here you can download a Demo version of Wysisyg. have a try. gabz[/url]
  14. heres something else youve gotta see. what an amazing deal. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...me=STRK:MEWA:IT gab
  15. ok well we can do it for a small price. and the lamps dont have to be 500's they can be 250's if that makes it easier at all. gab
  16. Hi! I am Gabriel and I would like to ask a favor of all the faithful users of Frogs. I am working at a venue at the moments that are doing a show in aid of the tsunami appeal. It is a “boy band†group called Take Tw*t and they are prancing around in funny costumes and making up their own lyrics to typical boy band songs all in aid of the tsunami appeal. We are expecting to fill out the 200 seater hall, selling tickets for a couple of pounds. I would love to give these guys a brilliant lighting show by using some Macs, preferably four, so one can be on each of the guys at a point in the show. The only catch is that Take Tw*t has no budget because the organisers want all the funds to go to the appeal, not to the lighting hire… The event takes place in Sussex Downs College - Lewes in Sussex on the 24th of March at 5:00 PM. You’re all invited! So here is my proposal, I need to get together four Macs, preferably Mac 500's for the 24th of March this year. Hopefully to have them by the beginning of the week to give myself time to plot some nice effects. I will organise transport and will be personally responsible for the fixtures. I can only realistically do transport from no higher north than Chelmsford in London. I would need the lamps and some DMX cables. We have a Fat Frog desk and I have been playing round on Phantom Frog seeing the effects that you can create and I would love to make them a reality! Any offers of ANY kind very welcome!!! Please contact me here or email gabzqc@hotmail.com Thanks, Gabz ps. please move this post to the correct forum if it is in the wrong place knine...
  17. but surely if one was to program a memory of a fixture changing to , say blue, then move that over to a submaster, in the bank of 12 on the bottom of a fat frog, then you would be able to change colours? please correct me if i am stupidly wrong... cheers
  18. wow, how do you boot the frogs up in test mode...? //gabz
  19. it really is painful! thats why i was wondering if it was normal! didn't hold it down for much longer.... //gabz
  20. Hi, has anyone else noticed that if you hold down the blackout button rather than tapping it once to blackout, all the channels strobe, or flash very quickly, it also happens on the phantom frog, is this normal, and if so what use is it for? Gabz
