Re: DMXIS + MIDI Sync - Not Working/Working Inconsistently/Failing to Operate as Expected

Good luck with the hunt!

also, did you reach out to Dave via support channels?
Mostly customers here on the forum (I think), but Dave might be able to answer by email.

He's been quick in the past when I've needed help

Re: Trigger script from midi?

Thanks Rich for the answer.

Wow I had no idea it's been 4 years since I started with dmxis!

After Dave told me I can't do things like sleep in the dmxis python, I decided to move all my logic outside the application, and just trigger the presets via midi.

Cheers

Re: DMXIS + MIDI Sync - Not Working/Working Inconsistently/Failing to Operate as Expected

It's interesting that you could change the behavior quite a bit using the different setups. in dmxis what midi inputs are shown / selected? If you disable them all, how does the bpm on screen react when you start the oscillator? Is it stable? Also what was the source of your midi clock? Alberton? Dm...

Re: DMXIS + MIDI Sync - Not Working/Working Inconsistently/Failing to Operate as Expected

The Oscillators use the clock of the sound device for timing, as far as I know. I'll see if I can find where I read that.

You don't have anything device at all for sound, not even the onboard audio?

Re: DMXIS + MIDI Sync - Not Working/Working Inconsistently/Failing to Operate as Expected

The Oscillator needs the sound card for clock, do you want to try selecting another sound device for output in dmxis? Input can be none/off I agree it's odd this is the only app having issues. I have only recently moved to midi clock myself during this lockdown. I used to just send the bpm value via...

Ok, good to know that banks aren't the problem. What you might be able to try next, is remove all midi / network components and just send midi clock directly on the PC I wonder if there's some kind of echo/repeating happening on your setup causing the clock beats to be set detected incorrectly.

Re: Showbuddy to Cubase midi track

Do you mean: ShowBuddy or Showbuddy active? Showbuddy Active is basically DMXIS with a better interface and more output options (video etc.) It should work much the same as DMXIS as a VST, although I haven't personally used it that way. Showbuddy is standalone and I think could replace Cubase for ru...

Re: Chase with moving color?

nice work, and this is just the tip of what you can do. If you look at the offset value for each fixture, you see the first is 0, the second is about .14, third .28 (approx), etc. If you wanted, you could manually swap the values around, so instead of the chase going L-R or R-L, it could be G R R R ...

Re: DMXIS + MIDI Sync - Not Working/Working Inconsistently/Failing to Operate as Expected

How many banks are you using?
Try settings all the banks to 120bpm, then trying again.
I had something similar recently.
Hope this helps,

Yes, expected, but I didn't want to overload you all at once. The quickest way from here is to repeat what you did for red on green channels, but select channel invert for all the green channels. You might need to put all the green faders to the bottom, which is now the on position once reversed See...

this should be possible. Do you already have all the lights on seperate channels? ie: fixture one on channel 1 (dmx channels 1-8) fixture two on channel 9 (dmx channel 9-16) etc. ? Once that is done, highlight all the green channels (double click) and set them all at full. Do the same for dimmer. yo...

Hey Dave,
Hopefully in a future release you can add a play button to the Show Library page.
I'm trying to set this up on a touchscreen windows tablet and not sure how to play the song without having a spacebar.
Equally, single click to load a track would be great too.

thanks!

Re: Is anyone running Show Buddy on a mac mini or other mini computer?

I use a MacBook with no problem, so there's no reason a mac mini would have an issues. How would you control it?

I was thinking of using a raspberry pi style SBC mounted behind my mixer, but there is no Linux/arm support so that idea was cancelled.
