Re: DMXIS software not connecting to box. Shows as "Offline".

If PRO Manager cannot detect or reset your DMXIS box, it's probably a hardware fault. Only the ENTTEC support team can assist you with this.

Re: Ableton DMXIS problem

When the box stops transmitting, what is the status of the LEDs on the box? Does the DMXIS software report that the connection has been lost? If any of the LEDs on the box are flickering dimly, it may be a USB power issue. Try connecting the box to a different USB port, or via a powered USB hob. It ...

Use MidiPipe to check the MIDI being transmitted across the IAC bus is correct.

Also, make sure you don't have a MIDI feedback loop by disabling the IAC driver in the Logic MIDI Preferences...

Re: Preset up/down MIDI learn

Make sure your LPD8 is transmitting notes with full velocity of 128. By default the pads are pressure sensitive, and you'll need to hit them pretty hard to trigger DMXIS!

Until we diagnose the cause of this obscure crash (which appears to be linked to the Logic Pro 10.5 release) a workaround is to control the SBA standalone using MIDI notes transmitted from Logic (via the macOS IAC driver)

Re: Bug: Creating new preset also overrides old preset.

This isn't a bug.

Fade To Next doesn't require a Save or Overwrite action. Whenever you touch the dial, it automatically changes & saves the value for the currently loaded preset.

Re: Art-Net stop when the plugin is hided on Ableton Live

The DMXIS VST is an audio plug-in, it needs an audio feed to work correctly. (The audio is used to accurately sync the DMX engine with the host audio)

Just move DMXIS into the Master rack, and route your MIDI to DMXIS using the "MIDI To" track menu.

Re: Art-Net stop when the plugin is hided on Ableton Live

Perhaps Ableton is suspending the plug-in processing because it detects silence at the input. Do you have DMXIS patched in a return track, which is not receiving any audio?

Did you remember to select a VST folder when running the DMXIS installer?

(If you don't explicitly tell the installer where to put the plug-ins, it only installs the standalone)

Re: %100 seen brightness with dimmer on %0, only in Show Control window

I would need a copy of your show file to diagnose that one. However, you might find it easier to simply define a default value of 100% for the Shutter & Strobo channels in the fixture definition. That way, D-Pro will set those channels to 100% as soon as you open the show. You can then remove those ...
