    Open the Fixture sheet to see the selected fixtures for undersganding. Select fixture 1 thru 8... Make desired Matrics and press Next or Prew key. It works cleverly with a selection of fixtures. Very time saving. Wing 2 Wigstyle Pan makes 1+8, 2+7...and inverts pan fof making symmetrical positions. The Set key brings you back to 1 thru 8 selection.

    Hi,
    1. one sbow/patch: if your dmx output runs via network, connect both desks to it. Backup solution included if ma-net or sAcn running (tested).
    2. two different shows/same patch: if you have enough of physical dmx out on wings, make...two...as dmx in, connect the other desk to and make dmx in merge in your desk (serch forum). Your desk must have all dmx values in all output universes at 0 (look at dmx sheet to check) to the other desk works correctly out. Backup solution not included. Dmx merge also offer a lot of dmx nodes, Chauvet Net-X tested, but the other desk connected in must have dmx at 0 if works your desk and vice versa.

    No experience. If time is not a problem, try connect the console with one problematic npu directly without a switch and with a new utp. You can use a second ethernet 1 and ...sACN to test. Or change a switch to test. Sleep modes, auto detects of ...something ...

    Hi,
    Lars sais no, so no. I do not know, if it is possible, but maybe, try (I did not watch the video). Make p/t effect, set it to Speedmaster 1. Make Speedmaster 1 fader. Run effect, turn Speedmaster 1 at 0 (stop). Tap Position Presettype to be red for desired fixtures in the effect. Maybe you will see the actual p/t values red in the Fixture sheet to be prepared for storing. If so, store this position and continue...

    If your preset system is done, you can store already made presets to fixturetype via creating the Preset reference (Setup - Autocreate) and export the peronality.xml with them on a usb stick from Patch - Fixturetypes. After fhe patch/change again, autocreate them from the personality as add or merge as global. The name is where they merge. Works great.

    Hi, shortly, yes, any dmx fixture and also any network protocol compatible ones (Artnet, sACN).
    Gma 2 - you need MA hardware to unlock output parameters (dmx, network) to work with the fixtures.
    Dot2 (different MA desk range) - 1 dmx universe is free via network directly to the first compatible fixture or any Artnet or sACN to dmx node. Any means not just MA hw.

    Gma 2 parameters here.

    Both desks can run its MA 3D software, try before. No parameters needed in this case in one pc or another one via network.

    Hi,
    all channels works always fine with Raw (raw strobo, raw effect...). Raw represents the plain fader like control, dmx from 0 to 100 % (0 to 255). The others (under Beam, gobo...) are made from these values to be quicker with programming. But they not always work properly with all patched fixtures in real, because someone make them bad (gobo do not stop when Stop is choosen...). But I do not know, how to make them for the new fixfure. Maybe open an existing profile (Proel wash) and look, how is it done in Fixture editor.

    If the cue x is active and output dmx and you change some values and store also to cue x and clear, then should these values immadietly stay to be outputed. No Go needed. Try to Off all before testing, have only cue x run. Check also the version of onPc.

    There is stereo in your song, left and right output your pc jack. A timecode (recorded in let say to left) must go to onPC XLR and be very much amplified at the PC side. Media Player is supported only if the Timecode track is recorded as a L or R track as a part of your song. If it is not, use Reaper software to generate it. Google for many videos. For testing download a timecode mp3 song from the net.
