Re: Tempo linked to original MIDI file?

We're both wrestling with a somewhat similar problem. The MIDI files I'm using have various BPMs, but in DMXIS they show as 120BPM only. Today I was writing on this thread, that you were also a part of: https://forums.dmxis.com/viewtopic.php? ... 571#p11676 Maybe we can figure out what is going wron...

Re: Flash/blinder without loop?

Thanks...I've designed the light show in Logic and exporting the MIDI, then importing into QLab in order to trigger it.

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

I was tracking this. Question: >Sync to incoming MIDI clock : when enabled, DMXIS synchronizes the master speed (and thus any oscillators) to any incoming MIDI clock messages. Should this, then, change the Bank Tempo in the Preset Manager and/or the Master Speed next to the Oscillator? I have Sync t...

Re: Chase with moving color?

Ah-man. Thanks. I'm not sure what you meant by offset. I don't see that in the oscillator. I've got plenty of tricks now. ;o) I have these cheap lights, but I get a dimmer, R, G, B, W. I'd love to upgrade, but would have to reprogram for the new lights, and many don't even have a dimmer in the fixtu...

Re: Flash/blinder without loop?

Thank you. I don't have dedicated blinders. I was trying to reproduce them with pars, quickly dropping the faders instead of just cutting the signal.

With multiple presets, are you talking about having two pre-programmed MIDI notes, with the first being full intensity and the second a blackout?

Re: Chase with moving color?

I'm not getting invert to work at all. If I have a fader selected that is bouncing down-up-hold, down-up-hold and turn off and on the invert, nothing happens at all.

Both colors, all selected:

Flash/blinder without loop?

I can use a chase to have the fixture flash the dimmer from 100 to 0 (sine). But then it loops and does it again. Is there a way to turn off the loop, so that the preset only flashes once, or at least holds it on 0 for a period of time?

Thank you for your help. Yes, I'm supposing it's true that the MIDI file sets the BPM, but I'm not sure about that. Hopefully that's the case! Thanks again.

Re: Chase with moving color?

Thank you Callan!

I'm close. The only problem is when the red fires on a fixture, the green is still on 100% on that fixture, so it's not a red color, but a red-green mix. Thoughts?

Creating midi notes in Logic and exporting to midi. Playing the midi file in QLab to trigger DMXIS. This had been working perfectly, but it seems Logic can no longer export a midi file having both channel 15 and 16 working. Only 15 works. Older versions still can export both 15 and 16 successfully. ...
