Not connected

So I have been using DMXIS for about 3 years now. It's been great but just recently during a gig the lights will freeze and the program is saying the box is not connected. If I unplug the usb and plug it back in again away we go.....for a little while and the same thing happens....and so it repeats....

Re: Test DMXIS hardware/ sortware

Thanks RichG I ran the head in standalone mode yesterday for a hour or so and all was fine. Set up an autorun on DMXIS and did the same thing - all was fine. Put all my cables thru a tester - again all fine - weird - I will just have to keep a close eye on it but as you say I suspect the fixture. th...

Test DMXIS hardware/ sortware

Hi Is there any way of testing DMXIS? I ask as recently I have had problems with two par cans not working, thought I had fixed one and then the other went. Put it down to xlr sockets which I replaced. Last night I had one of the moving heads turning its light off although it was still moving around ...

Re: Steps?

Yes sort of - the Daslight program creates a preset with a series of "sub-presets" which keeps things tidy. Hopefully DMXIS can incorporate something similar before Daslight catches up with mover targets ;-)

Steps?

Hi all I have been using DMXIS for a couple of years and found it very good - i use it with TouchOSC and have added the Mover target Macro etc. The only problem I have is setting up chases with the oscillator -for quick simple results its great but for more complex things its hard work or impossible...

Upgrade from DMXIS

Hiya - Is there an upgrade path from DMXIS to SBA for a loyal customer ;-) to save a few £££. - I have been using DMXIS for over two years and found it excellent - especially when I added the TouchOSC to my tablet :-)

thanks

Re: Chase with 4 Par Bars

I have a KAM Party Bar with 4 lights - I hope I am correct in understanding that you want to chase a single colour along the bar? If so just set to RGB sliders to the colour you want and use the oscillator to chase the dimmers. I hope thats what you meant - Wayne

Re: DMXis Macro - manage moving head targets for show

Just doing some set up with this - great idea and it works!

Just one question I can see its worked in the debugg window but can we get a splash box come up to say when its finished?

Touch OSC Buttons

Hi there I am wanting to use the press button or toggle for a reset button on my moving heads - the channels for the sliders are 73 and 89 and the value I need to set is in the range DMX 200-209 (anywhere in that range resets the heads). I have added the buttons to the layout but I cant get them to ...

Change of laptop

Hiya
Due to a dead ethernet port I have had to transfer dmxis to a new lap top. I managed to transfer the files and our presets work fine. However the fixture headers are not showing and the master faded dies not work. File dmxconfig looks the same on both machines.

Any ideas please?

Thanks

Touchosc and Android

Hi all. I spent the morning making myself a nice Touchosc layout and loaded it to my Galaxy S8 only to find out that Touchosc does not work properly with Android, or at least with default settings. The control from the iPad works to the laptop running DMXIS but the return doesn't. Sometimes labels w...

DMXIS user

Hi all. We have been using dmxis with osc and generally it's great. As our show expands we are wanting to do more with lighting but I am not sure if I have reached the limits of dmxis and need to go up to d-pro which seems a massive overkill. I simply want to set up auto run routines, create a singl...

Chase?

Hi all I am trying to chase 8 led par cans. I can't seem to find a way with the oscillator. Therefore I set up a new bank and the first present was just the first par can set to red, the second preset just the second can red and so on, then i repeated this with green and blue. I then ran the bank in...

First gig with new version

Hi all I used the new version with Ipad control for the first live gig last night and I have to say it was brilliant. The effects looked great and I am now excited to program more! I did have the DMXIS prgram freeze on me just before the break - I got a bit carried away with the tap and I think that...

New version

Hi - I upgraded to the new version yesterday and was able to set up Touch osc to control the lights - brilliant! However both my devices were connected to my homewifi. I guess for gigging I would need to take some sort of router with me - is that correct and if so what sort of thing? Also I guess I ...

Re: HELP: MP3 , WAV files...

hi - found this comment about MP3 vs WAV. We have lots of MP3 tracks - should I be thinking of converting them to WAV with some sort of conversion tool for use with Showbuddy - or being MP3 will they have already "lost" what extra would be in the wav version of the original?

thanks
