  3. Hi im having a very frustrating time adding fade to chase steps ie fade up .5 sec fade down .75 sec read the relevent part of the manual but must be doing somthing wrong does the speed knob have to be right the way down..?.. also type window keeps returning to S.C. instead of staying C and what are the time increments 00:00.0 im presuming minutes seconds tenths finally where can i get a replacement push switch for the output section as mine is not working Thanks Rich
  4. Thank you... the 0.5 /0.75 was just an example i will try the turn the speed down option also i suppose i could enter an extra steps ramping up 25% 50% 75 % 100% ( im using leds ) your help has been much appreciated thank you
  5. Hi Thowing this out for disscussion consideration ( shooting down in flames etc ) on a whim googled usb floppy emulator and serch cam back with http://www.ipcas.com/products/usb-floppy-emulator-fdd-to-udd.html which claims to directly replace ANY 3.5 floppy drive 1-to -1 the ipcas unit is around 249 euro £220.00 but have a look on e.bay non branded units at around £40.00 they all originate in china / asia point is could we non usb fitted frog users retro fit these ..?? dimentions and fittings claim to be same as standard floppy case warrenties for desk not withstanding etc what about formatting issues ? not being a computer wizard myself waiting for the mud to fly Jesterfish

    eenee

    Hi on my fat frog has been the victim of sound engineer " houmour" hmmm.....!! after returning to desk after sorting somthing or other the small screen that shows the displays for generics and set up etc etc ( function screen ) had been covered in lx tape and ribald comments written on it so far so normal. the problem came when i took lx tape off half the display has become fuzzy and out of focus looking at it closely there seems to be a lacquer on top of the screen so half the screen is in focus half is fuzzy the tape has taken part of this covering off is it possable to replace the display or the lacquer on the display. i do use an monitor display as a normal thing ( more info visable at anyone time ) its just annoying cheers Rich

    y axis and offset

    HI . thanks for reply i will try that on wed i had noticed that offset was input at 10 % increment and zeroed them before start also the offset reset itself when trying to reprogramme same effect could this be a preset done with the fixture editor ? although i think this unlikely as fal 2000 are in the fixture library as a choice so no need to set a custom profile thanks for your reply.

    y axis and offset

    Hi. just got back from gig using a friends fat frog being familier with setting up submasters with basic scenes chases etc i got a bit annoyed when i set up a forward sweep i ie: scanner beams start at back travel forward and then back and repeat ( y axis ) i found that the beams would go 2 one way 2 the other when i entered the speed option ( offset at zero) also set to Relative mode. in manual tilt mode all scans set the same ( no reverse tilt or pan ) im assuming there must be a preset that needs altering as my f/frog will do a forward sweep no problem thanks jesterfish
  10. Hi my venerable demux 48 went up in smoke the other day while setting up gig upon investigation it looks like either the onboard battery has leaked and created a short or some rouge foil has shorted across a chip ( i think 623n ) as charring is evident also there is charring around one of the ribbon connector holders for socapex option what i am enquiring about is the possibility of repair as it is now an '' obsolete'' item is it still supported...?? its definatly going to require a chip possably a main circuit board possably a new internal battery Thanks Jesterfish

    frog resetting its self

    Hi my fat frog has taken to losing its previous settings for wide use and the internal clock timer resets to zero no other presets are affected all ok on submasters and dmx patching etc its all easy to live with but dont want it to become more serious in the future any ideas ??

    Duplicate DMX patching

    Hi . thanks for the reply thats a bit clearer. what you are saying is that once a dmx channel assigned to a desk preset channel it is exclusive to that desk preset channel and cannot be multi assigned to other desk presets ( i think i read that that feature is available on other zero 88 desks but not on F.Frog) other than in main submaster Thank jesterfish

    Duplicate DMX patching

    Hi. new guy first post i have just bought a fat frog with v10.9.1 and am getting on fine with it so far what i need to know as regards manual patching and duplicates is is it possable to create ( for want of a better word ) a pseudo sub master with the preset a/b/+flash faders and buttons..?? ie manualy patch dmx channels 1.2.3.4. to channel 1 on the desk ( which is easy R.T.F.M. ) what i am finding a bit of a mystery is that what i would like to do is patch dmx channels 3.4.5.6. onto channel 2 of the desk as it stands the manual patching skips dmx 3 & 4 and will only start at dmx 5 . maybe im misunderstanding the manual about duplicates also on insert mode the lcd comes up with a +1 insted of a D1 as in the manual i presume this is the same and just an update. thanks Jesterfish
