Sound to Light

Recommended Posts

On the FLX Zero 88 there is a 1/4 inch sound input, apprantly you can take an output from a sound desk and the lights will match either the bass, middle or high of the sound and sync with the beats. I have looked for ages and can't find out how to do this.

 

Can anyone help?

Not used it myself but sound to light is mentioned on pages 43 and 81 of the manual. If you are not a sound engineer then talk to one, you may need something between the two desks (sound desks tend to use a balanced connection on XLR while this input looks to be an unbalanced stereo one and a conversion may be needed).

Hi both,

The audio input can trigger chases to run. When you’ve programmed a chase, you can go into its settings, and enable sound to light. The audio jack input can be a balanced or unbalanced signal. Many sound consoles have jack outputs for monitors, which you can take a feed from and plug into the console. For best results, feed a bass filtered signal, so the console knows what to step the chase’s cues to. It’s always good to also have the ability to adjust the volume level entering the console. 

Hope this helps,

Edward
