Re: presets with color chases won’t fade smoothly to next preset with different color chase

hey Zack,

Saw your vid . If you can send your (zip/rar) setup to xxxccccc and I will try to give a look to see if I can see if I can take a deep look at whats causing it. FYI I will delete this post in a few days or if you respond for obvious reasons. Unfortunately no PM function on here.

Re: Fade duration on preset gets corrupted

I too am using Ableton for backing tracks and lights(SBA) starting this weekend. Normally no issues but every now and again it will hiccup. Since you say there is nothing in the “midi learn” section that shouldn’t be it. However, I’m thinking something in Ableton is causing it. Are you running windo...

Re: Fade duration on preset gets corrupted

Couple quick questions as I’ve never had this issue. 1. When this happens, does it happen on all presets? 2. Are you using a midi controller to control SBA? 3. In “midi Learn”, is anything assigned to the “Fade Time”? I’m thinking perhaps some midi signal may be getting sent to SBA in the background...

Random Play/AutoPlay for Banks and midi

It would be great to see a "Random Play" on/off for a particular bank. There is the "Autoplay" which runs in a loop through the presets, and using the foot controller, there is the ability to select a random preset. However, a "Random Play" would give the SBA the ability to set it and forget it for ...

Re: Masking is driving me CRAZY!!!!

If I’m reading this correctly, yes. You are on the right track. Basicallally when you programming your PARS, all other light fixture channels will be masked. Then when you program the moving heads, mask everything but the moving head channels. Same with fogger.

Agreed!. I posted this in another thread and somehow totally missed this Wish list section at the top of the page. And to piggy back off of this, it would be nice to leave space (notes which are inactive in between) such as this sample I am attaching.

Re: Masking is driving me CRAZY!!!!

Yes. It will until another color patch kicks in. If your going to be blacking out the front truss periodically, I would not include the dimmer in with your color preset. If it will constantly stay on, I would. San Antonio, Texas

Re: Masking is driving me CRAZY!!!!

Your situation is very similar to mine. In a band, I (guitar player) get the track started and we use backing/click tracks. I would say since your front truss will always be on, you can unmask the dimmer for your color presets (if you wanted. Really wont matter much in your case. See below). That wa...

In short, and assuming you set up things as I described, yes. Just at the beginning of the song. It's not always necessary, but say for example you end a song and with the lights off. If you start the next song and don't have the "Dimmer On" activated, it wont show any lights. FYI, because I am not ...

This Is how I would do it. But your setup may dictate a need for something else. What we are doing is isolating your colors, dimmers, and strobes Full Dimmer 1- dimmer (100) 2- strobe (masked) 3- function (masked) 4- color change (masked) 5-red (masked) 6-green (masked) 8-blue (masked) 8-white(maske...

Re: Masking is driving me CRAZY!!!!

Do you have a link to your lights manual? Or can write what the different channels options are or could be? If it is like RGBAWUv, I’d go the 10 channel route.

Re: Masking is driving me CRAZY!!!!

Just clarifying. The settings for your zero preset basically has all faders set to zero AND all channels are masked(disabled) If this is the case, this is your problem. When the channel is masked, it will send no signal on that particular channel. Let’s say you are starting on your zero preset which...

Re: presets with color chases won’t fade smoothly to next preset with different color chase

Few Quick Questions: 1. What Operating System are you using? 2.In any preset, if you have an oscillator running on any of the RGB channels, is the fader with that channel moving? For example: Pick a light, on the Red fader, set the value to 128, set the oscillator type to sine, amount to 50%. With t...

Another Request:

Check preset/bank name prior to saving new or renamed names for invalid characters such as # and / etc. Pretty sure the stand alone will appear to save however does not and the plugin when attempting to save in ableton, crashes ableton. I kick myself every time I do it.

Re: Beam Properties - Direction (Moving Head)

So this is one area I think the SBA could use some improvement. I too have some (4) moving heads. Unfortunately, being a 2d representation this would be difficult to emulate. Also, I don't think the format of the .dmx file structure lets you customize certain light properties such as pan range. 360?...
