Desk in Partial Mode

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

 

I’m about to do my first show using partial mode – with a combination of 4 colour changers, 2 scans (all Soundlab, with edited fixture files) and a load of generics (pars etc.)

 

I’m used to operating/programming in Full mode, but have experienced some difficulties in using partial mode….

 

When I select all 4 colour changers, and use the colour palette I set up, the colour will change correctly on the first unit, but with a different colour on the other 3 (i.e. the same on the other 3).

Likewise with the scans, if I select them both, I’ll only have control of one of them when using the pallettes, or wheel groups.

I’m not talking about programming them in to memories, just running them live. For reference, all the fixtures have flashing yellow lights by default (is that the way it should be?), and red lights when selected.

However, if I use the wheels on the colour changers, the colours will change to the same on each!

 

Does anyone have any thoughts?

 

Thanks in advance,

Ian.

When programming the pallets have you all the fixtures selected( yellow led flashing) that you what recorded to that pallet.

Failing that, stick an end of line in the last fixture, solves a whole pile of troubles :lol:

I don't think I did - I just assumed that the colour palette would work for all fixtures of the same type. (whoops!) I'll give it a whirl!

 

While I'm on... is there any reason flash buttons wouldn't work (again, in partial mode, running live)? All the obvious stuff seems to be fine (grandmaster etc).

 

Thanks for your help GLX!

Check the 'Flash Mode' - 3 options are Off/Flash/Solo.

 

Also, since release 9.0, if you lock the monitor screen on palettes, then the flash buttons also lock to become palette selection rather than channel flash buttons.

If you've got the desk in wide mode, then also check the 'Shift' button, as this will determine which set of channels the flash buttons correspond to.
