7.9.5 Patching

Recommended Posts

I have recently downloaded and installed 7.9.5 on my Leapfrog 48. When in patch if I select say dimmer 1-6 and patch desk to 1-6 all good, when I select dimmer 7-12 to patch on the same faders all good however when I patch dimmer 13-18 to the same 6 faders the numbering goes crazy. To be fair this happened in 7.9.4 but I thought this would have been updated by now. It is such a pain in the ass. I know I can do it manually but the size of some of the theatres rigs makes this impossible in the time I have. Say they have 10 RGBWA Pars on each bar and I want to add each LX bar as a different set of faders, that could take me an hour if 5 LX bars. 

PLEEEAAASSSEEE can this be fixed asap?? 😫

Love the new FX presets. Really useful. Keep them coming!

 

 

Also on on FLX I successfully found a 'hidden gem' 😉 but as the leapfrog doesn't have a 'Z' key how can I access this crucial hidden feature? I'm touring a 3 1/2 hr long theatre concert (25% music 75% chat) in a couple of months so NEED this feature (and although I would love an FLX I can't justify one just for the hidden feature, or can I....?🤔)

 

 

Thanks for your input.

I'm not sure I understand the issue. Is this in SETUP -> Add Fixtures? Patching onto the Channel faders is working as expected. Or is this in SETUP -> Fixture Schedule? Are you trying to add multiple DMX addresses to fixtures?

Intrigued by what is meant by this 'hidden gem'? :D and more importantly how to find it...

The elephant in the room he's talking about is Frogger.

I was leaning towards that thought... Any update on how to access said elephant? :)

I mean when I press

setup>Fixture Schedule>select faders 1-6>Address button (used for addressing a ranger of dimmers)>100>OK>(fader patches correctly)>Address button>106>Add as additional address>(all is still OK)Address button>112>Add as additional address

I end up on fader 1 with DMX 100, 106, 112 and 113 patched in!?

fader 2 I get DMX 101, 107,  114 and 115!?

 

Hope that is a  bit clearer.

 

 

Big shame about Frogger! 😂😂😂

Yes thank you for the explanation. This is something we are aware of, and has not been included in ZerOS 7.9.5. Instead you can tap the DMX address cell for each individual fixture, and type your additional address for that fixture.

Any queries let me know.
