Re: Wireless midi control of DMXIS

A nice thing about DMXIS, it can be as simple or as complex as you make it. My configuration with the wireless midi control is pretty elaborate. If it should fail, I ...

Wireless midi control of DMXIS

One project that has been lingering on my seemingly endless task list was to build a case for my lighting controller. I'm using a Fractal Audio MFC-101 midi controller to send PC & CC messages to DMXIS. This setup is completely wireless. THIS 12 Vdc battery is used to power everything so no power ca...

Re: Channel Masking Show Buddy Active

I'm not sure if Masking is what you want to use. I'll give a detailed explanation with an example and you can decide if it's what you want to use. The Enabled property in any channel in a preset can either be ON or OFF. When Enabled is set to ON, then the channel will equal the saved value for that ...

Re: Channel Masking Show Buddy Active

If you want presets that do Full Red, Full Green, etc... then you do not want to use masking. Masking retains the previous preset value when the new preset is chosen. Think of Masking as an "add too" feature. That's why you currently get Yellow when selecting Full Green after the Full Red. You're ad...

A little enhancement for the MIDI Control section, which also include CC for switch between banks and presets.

Re: DMXis and Ultra DMXking

DMXIS does not accept DMX input from an external controller in the manner you have described.

It does, however, accept OSC and/or MIDI as input. OSC is a very powerful way to control DMXIS externally.

Many thanks to you.
You're welcome. Glad you got it working. :)

Not really sure why an audio input needs to be specified for Midi and Oscillators to work. Perhaps there should be a note in the Preferences window that states "Setting Input to << none >> will disable oscillators and midi".

Re: DMXIS Help (Midi 15/16)

Check File|Preferences|Audio/MIDI Settings|Input

It should be set to Microphone or something like that.

If it is set to << none >> then midi doesn't work... nor do any of the oscillators.

When you use something like MidiOx, does it show midi messages are being sent to that device? Program Change and Bank Select LSB messages are also recognized by DMXIS in omni (any channel, not just 15 or 16) mode. Try sending msg 0xC0 0x01 to select the second Preset in the current Bank.

DMXIS 1.6.3 -> 1.7.0 File Changes / Compatibility

When updating DMXIS from version 1.6.3 to 1.7.0, are there any compatibility issues if I need to roll back to 1.6.3? Any changes to xml, prt, fixture, or macro files that aren't backwards compatible? I backed up my 1.6.3 files just in case.

Take a look at the DmxConfig.xml file. It lists all the fixtures and their starting point (from) and ending point (to) in a relatively simple format. Subtract 1 to get the DMX address.

Re: Flash/blinder without loop?

You could use multiple presets. One preset would be a dedicated "Blinder" preset. For that preset, enable and turn on any channel associated with the blinders. All other channels in the Blinder preset would be disabled. For all your other presets, turn the blinders off.
