Re: Basic sequence

Scenes are stored as presets. And you can autoplay them (they are under the perform tab) They can have a tempo, but the tempo is controlled independently from the master clock, tap tempo and audio inputs. If the audio or tap tempo was connected to autoplay it would do pretty much exactly what your a...

Re: Basic sequence

Unless Dave chimes in stating otherwise, I don't believe there is a way to step through scenes using the built in audio source. You could probably do this externally with a sound to MIDI trigger programmed to step through scenes.

I believe you could do this with a chase sequence and the oscillator driven by the audio input.

Re: Show Buddy Active with any USB->DMX?

Just to clarify.

DMXIS will only work with the DMXIS hardware box

SBA on the other hand is not hardware locked and will work with other DMX interfaces. Both USB to DMX and Artnet.
The Artnet implementation has the advantage of supporting 2 universes.

Re: ADJ Mega Hex Pars not working with DMXis

Its not a DMXIS problem and actually for all practical purposes fixture profiles don't actually change anything in DMXIS. Its primarily a labeling system so you can identify what fader controls what parameter. If you didn't assign a profile DMXIS would still output the same data on each DMX channel,...

Re: Limiting maximum DMX Value for specific faders ?

Unfortunately the fixture files do not allow you to actually limit the max out, only to define ranges of control. I know it seems like this should work, but DMXIS does not limit the output of the fader - full on will still always output 255, as there is no coding in DMXIS to actually limit the outpu...

Re: Change default midi channels for Banks and Presets

I'm pretty sure there isn't any external control via python or any other method that would allow you to change midi channels.

DMXIS would have to be reprogrammed to do this.

Re: Martin Atomic 3000 DMX. Help!!!

Set the dmx address on the strobe to 1, plug it in and run up the 1st four faders in DMXIS.

You don't have to assign a profile to the faders. DMXIS will still output DMX data without a profile assigned.

If nothing happens, you likely have a defective light.

Re: NEW TO DMXIS

Hi,

yes your post is visible. I don't use DMXIS as a VST so can't help. Guessing there may not be a lot of Cubase users here using the VST version either.

Wish I could provide more info, but figured I'd reply just so you know there are other people active on the forum.

Wasn't there a larger DMX option like 11 or 13 channels. That might give you access to the Dimmer channel by itself, although at the expense of eating up DMX channels.

take a look at the task manager while you run your shows as see what your cpu load is.
