Re: Operate PowerPoint with Showbuddy.

There are a few utilities out there that can convert MIDI notes to keyboard events. I've not personally tried it, but MIDIShortcut is one such utility. You could then create a simple MIDI chunk (containing one note) in Show Buddy, and drop that onto your timeline wherever you need a PP page change. ...

Re: 1.7.1 Midi Chunk for Tap Tempo

Instead of placing multiple MIDI chunks on the timeline, try creating a single MIDI chunk containing 4 events, spaced apart using the Time column. For example, the example below fires 4 notes @ 120bpm... Obviously, you need to create separate chunks for each tempo you need, but the accuracy should b...

Re: Weird DMXIS behaviour after adding 4 new fixtures

Is this, I wonder, CPU performance related? Could you take a look at the Windows Task Manager, and check on the CPU load at the points where automation starts to act strange?

Re: Weird DMXIS behaviour after adding 4 new fixtures

OK, so that's likely nothing to do with the physical connection of additional lights to your DMXIS box. I would guess that if you run the show with the DMXIS box disconnected, you will still see those automation problems. So, the question is, what has changed in your software setup to cause the auto...

Re: Weird DMXIS behaviour after adding 4 new fixtures

You say that broken automation is the problem. Are the DMXIS faders not moving? Or are they moving correctly but the physical lights are not responding?

(Connecting additional physical lights to your DMXIS box should never change the software behaviour)

Re: Do Settings From Standalone App Carry Over to VST?

In the standalone Preferences window you'll see an option under "Plug-In Settings" called "Sync oscillators to song position". Switch that off.

Now, oscillators in the VST plug-in will trigger when a preset is loaded, instead of syncing to the host song position.

Re: Can D-Pro run as a VST ?

No, only DMXIS and Show Buddy Active will run as a VST or AU plugin.

However, some people do run D-Pro alongside Ableton, and control it via MIDI commands sent from Ableton.

Please contact ENTTEC support directly about this. They might be able to help you if it's an intermittent hardware issue. Pro-Manager certainly shouldn't crash either, but again they might have an answer for that.
