  1. 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.






  2. 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..




  3. 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?




  4. 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...




  5. 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.



  6. 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... :P



  7. 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
