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.

You need to write a little Python code as follows:

startCh = 17
endCh = 21

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 ...

Re: fixture latency

The usual way to automate a DMXIS show is indeed to use full presets (i.e. scenes) triggered by a single MIDI note. And yes, in this scenario, you cannot selectively modify the timing of certain DMX channels. There are two alternative solutions. First, you can use your QLC+ programming method, trigg...

No, the box still needs to be connected while transmitting Art-Net. The box basically acts as a license dongle.

Re: What happened to DMXIS 1.6.9?

ENTTEC were distributing 1.6.9 on their website for a while, but they pulled it following a reported issue with Ableton Live and the DMXIS plug-in. For the time being, ENTTEC have reverted to distributing 1.6.3.

1.7.0 will be available shortly. This fixes the 1.6.9 crash, and adds Art-Net output.

Re: Cannot import Track

Are they m4a files? There is a known issue with m4a files and Show Buddy, which will be fixed in the upcoming 1.7 release. For the moment, use a different format of audio file.

I highly recommend using an uncompressed format like wav or aiff for the best audio quality & timing accuracy.
