to program a light show on a song

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm looking for a method to program light effects on a song. This means that it has to expire automatically when the song is running. I just don't know how to do this. Does anyone have a solution for me?

Kind regards,

jp1234

I think the "usual" way to do this would be to have MIDI timecode information linked to the audio track and the audio player squirts out the audio to the PA and the MIDI timecode to the Lighting Desk which has cues that are triggered on MIDI timecode event.

However I've never done this, but I'm sure plenty of people have!

Hi JP,

Yes as Kevin says, when programming a light show, this is normally done by programming a cue stack per song, and the cues within that stack would be triggered using a time code, such as MIDI Time Code. For more information on MIDI on ZerOS, see below...

Solution consoles have the ability to be upgraded, to allow for MIDI Input. For more information on this, see the article below...

Hope this helps, if you have any queries let me know.
