Re: Copy and Paste Pre-sets

You could try going into your presets folder for those two presets you made and copy the .prt files into a single folder.

Re: Create a preset with multiple changes to individual channel of a fixture

This is why we require assignable preset-loops or, preferably, a series of definable preset loops within a bank :)

Re: Capture 2019 Student Edition as a free visualizer

Ah, channel mapping/patch channels - this is what using the Capture Student Edition has required me to understand :) In Capture Student Edition I use a 'generic' Chauvet ColorDash Par-Quad 18 as the main fixture and then attempt to manipulate the intensity to suit my particular fixtures (unfortunate...

Re: Preset Manager Glitch

Hmm, that is concerning. While not quite the same issue, I have noticed that the DMXIS software often states it cannot connect yet it is still sending data out (and received)... I wonder whether this is related - the software not visually loading/displaying the current state? BTW, I am using the 1.6...

Re: My DMXIS wish list

Further: * Copy/Paste and Undo should be built into the DMXIS interface - having to load a third party macro to copy/paste is a huge oversight (and painful to utilise). * 'Undo' is only possible by loading another preset, thus deleting all changes made - however if you only have one preset in a bank...

My DMXIS wish list

After playing around with DMXIS for the past few weeks, these are the features I would like to see incorporated: 1. Fade to Next based upon BPM rather than seconds - even better, the option to switch between BPM and seconds 2. To be able to select two or more presets in a bank and enable looping/aut...

Re: Capture 2019 Student Edition as a free visualizer

... when it first came out, SBA was called DMXIS Platinum. SBA will import DMXIS banks, presets and fixtures. Thanks, Rich - I had read that SBA was once called DMXIS Premium, but to be honest I really have not explored the differences between SB and SBA. Good to know that SBA uses the same banks a...

Re: DMXIS with Ableton - Newbie Help Request

Look for a folder titled 'Enttec' rather than 'DMXIS' in your VST folder. You can control the standalone DMXIS via midi from your DAW however you will probably need midi loop software (i.e., virtual midi port software). As I do not MAC I am unsure what a good freebie is for your system. In the DAW y...

Re: DMXIS with Ableton - Newbie Help Request

Hi Drummeric - I do not use Mac or Ableton, however when I installed DMXIS on my PC it asked for me to locate my VST folder to install the DMXIS plugin. Do you recall that happening? I know on my PC there are a few locations that I have VST plugins installed, so I wonder whether DMXIS installed the ...

Re: Capture 2019 Student Edition as a free visualizer

Before purchasing the Capture you may look into "Show Buddy Active" which has a 2D visualizer. Hi vwodwo22, Thanks for the reply. I will look at Show Buddy Active again as it is certainly cheaper at AU$290 than Capture. However as we do not use backing or click tracks it initially appeared to me th...

I have been trying out various visualisors (or if you prefer, visualizers) over the past few days trying to find something accessible/easy to use and preferably free. Downloaded around 4 or 5 software packages - some which my virus software blocked as viruses - and in the end i found Capture to be a...

Re: Oscillator problems.

Edit for clarity: if I trigger the preset as the song is running with the corresponding midi note, the oscillator doesn't start from the beginning of its pattern . It starts part way through, as if the oscillator is locked to an internal timing in DMXIS, independent of my DAW or the midi note positi...

Re: MIDI Control - DMXIS will be last in chain

After a lengthy Google search for a Windows 10 MIDI filter/mapper I decided to try MIDI OX even though it states that it runs on Windows systems up to NT (I currently use it on an old Windows XP netbook) - MIDI OX appears to run fine on Windows 10. Have set up filtering/mapping to kill all midi chan...

I can confirm that Tap Tempo is not saved - reverts to "No Action" after closing and re-opening.

Re: DMXIS and MIDI?

The fact that Program Changes are received on all channels is a huge failing in my opinion (no disrespect to Dave). While midi notes are limited to channels 15 & 16 and the midi learn feature will effectively learn Control Changes by channel, having PCs received in omni mode is, frankly, piss-poor. ...

Re: MIDI Control - DMXIS will be last in chain

Thanks, Rich, for the reply. That was my concern with the PCs being omni - I send out PCs on three channels currently hence the need for filtering. I had not thought through with the midi learn feature that the CCs would be learnt by channel sent. I have downloaded the software and played with it an...

Re: Clipboard copy-paste scripts for DMXIS

Wonderful! Thank you so much for this macro, kallepaa!

I can confirm on Windows 10 that the ' clipboardfile = "C:\\Users\\{Username}\\AppData\\Local\\Temp\\dmxis_clipboard" ' path works whereas the generic ' clipboardfile = "C:\\tmp\\dmxis_clipboard" ' path did not work for me.
