Re: Color Picker

If the fixture is a CMY or RGB capable fixture, then... Hitting Shift+Tool will bring up the tool selection on the S keys. There are TWO pages of tools, but if you are on the first page, the Colour Picker sits on S11. Once selected, you can bring up the "Last tool used" by hitting the tools button j...

Re: PVL Labeling

Here is a solution... There is about 8mm to 9mm between the top of the fader and the bottom of the button for the next row. Get some of this plastic extrusion like this from your nearest office/stationary supplier: http://www.techplas.com.au/products/binder.htm ...and fix it "opening up" between the...

Re: DMX output issue

To get 255,255,255 you need [S1-Strobe] = 120hz, [Int] or [S3-Intensity] = 100 and [S4-Duration] = "Infinite" If that is what you have, go into [S3-Hardware Setup] [S12-Console] and change the USB DMX Flavour to 20hz and try again. Having worked with Matt on this issue, I can tell you that all flav...

While the 500 consoles happily run for years without a reboot, it is good to regularly kick Windows in the pants. Good for the computer, and good for the soul. - re-boot after a...

Re: A few after a week

-Is there an option similar to the Sub Super from the 500's? Hey Robert - you could "fudge" a super sub via a macros and using virtual subs: - move the subs you want to control into virtual positions (say 101 thru 167) - put a macro only on subs 1 thru 67 something like this "On Change"...
