Set a channel to level manually?

Recommended Posts

Have 2 Martins 250 Entours.

With the ETC board, I would manually punch in the dimmer channel and set it to a level to send the LAMP ON command.

 

Can I still do this on the Bullfrog? Say B020 AT 10? Or am I going to need to set up a submaster just to do this? I also had a couple MACROS to close the dimmer in case something went wrong. Whats the norm for using MARTINS on the BULLFROG? I dont have them set as LAMP ON on POWER ON as then we would have to use the breaker in the back to turn them off and on but perhaps I may rethink that.

 

And sometimes I have to send a reset command to them as well (B020 AT 85)

I currently do have them set as FIXTURES. I am hoping there is way to reset the HOME position that is programmed in as well. As the HOME position will point right where people are sitting. I downloaded the fixture editor and looks like I can modify that.

The 'Home' value for pan and tilt parameters is normally set to 50% (128 on an 8 bit parameter and 32768 on a 16 bit parameter)

 

If you load the fixture type into the Fixture Type Editor, you can edit the home values as required and then save the edited fixture type file to floppy, then assign the fixtures on the desk to the new fixture type.

You can use palettes as suggested above, or record the required fixture parameter data (channel data) directly onto a submaster and trigger the outputs that way.
