The stage setter 8 is a straight forward controller channels 1-8 or channels 1-6 consecutivly.
So the controller will always give you the same results.
I think the best thing for you would be to contact Chauvet and see whats up with the Color Pallette.. It has some pretty complex channel assignments, and if you address them to 1 for simplicity sake they should do the same thing. For other channel or menu setting on the Color Palette you need to work with chauvet.
