Re: how to reset the factory record code and to operate the DMX controller.

joelc ·
Hello, To reset the record code for the Scene Setter, you must hold down RECORD, EDIT and the HOLD button. As you are holding these buttons down, tap these button in this sequence, 5, 10, 15, and 20. This should reset the password.

Hi. Welcome to the forums. The Stage setter 8 is a a 8 DMX channel controller designed and intended for use with conventional dimmer packs with Par cans with halogen bulbs in them. you need a "bigger" controller. Here is why. The LED par cans are anywhere from 3-6 or 7 channel EACH. The flash shot DMX is about 2 or 3 DMX channels each. The Galaxian laser is 5 channels. so add that all up at minimum channels are you are using 33 DMX channels if you want to get individual control of all your...

Re: Scene setter blackout defeat

len ·
When you power up a scene setter, it automatically defaults to blackout and requires you to push the blackout button. For conventionals, that's fine, but for LED it's not a necessary feature. Is there a way to turn that off so the blackout isn't on?

Re: Using a Scene Setter with compu live

Guest ·
Ah ok, i see what you want to do. However, the scene setter does not have this kind of record function. Curious, since Compu is very mouse click, why you dont just make master scenes so all they would have to do is click the scenes? you could even password protect it so all they can do is click the scenes already created

Hi James, Just recently started working with MIDI on our Stage Setter-8 for our church. We are looking at using it for small plays, etc. Here is what we have found so far. First off, we are using a program called "MultiPlay" . This allows us to set up audio cues, pictures, video, lighting through MIDI. Best of all it is free. Your software should be able to send the same commands as both are using MIDI. First, make sure that the MIDI OUT cable from the computer is going into the MIDI IN on...

Re: SS8 Fog button...

sinaloakid ·
hello Backdot, thank you for your interest in the STAGE SETTER 8. the STAGE SETTER 8 was only designed to support ADJ fog machines only. plugging in a different brand will not damage the console. worst case is it will just not be compatible. you can give it a try, but its not guaranteed to work though.

Re: Controlers And Dimmer Packs

sinaloakid ·
stage setter 8 will work with any DMX dimmer pack. check the specs on you NSI dimmer and make sure it is DMX compatible. Elation does not have a 1200 watt per channel dimmer pack.

Re: Stage setter 8 issues

teggers ·
ADJ is the parent company to Elation. About 5 years ago, Elation took over the stage lighting division. You can get someone at either company through that number. The Stage Setter 8 ONLY sends 8 channels of DMX so you must have your dimmer set on DMX values that will max out at 8, otherwise, you will not be able to control them (turn them on). The stickers that were on your dimmer are indeed DMX values. The first dimmer is 1-4, that means the number in the window should read 1. The second,...

Re: Newbie question

serraava ·
Sorry for the late response on these question guys, I will try to explain DMX addressing now. The best way to describe DMX addressing is that it is like the postal system. First, you pick the address you want to send the letter to. Then the letter goes to the mail center, where it is sorted for delivery. Next, a mailman takes the letter and delivery's it to the address. The first step in setting up DMX system is you patch your console (Pick the address you want to send commands to). Since...

Best way to learn is to grab the Stage Setter 8 manual, and learn how to set it to 16ch mode and read how to address your packs, all that should be in the manual: https://cdb.s3-us-west-1.amazo...5/stage_setter_8.pdf

I am setting up a row of Tribrick 36 LED with a Stage Setter 24 console. All of the fixtures are set to 4 channel mode, Address 008.

Jerky fade to black

How do we make the lights fade to black smoothly? I'm new to lighting. Our church purchased a Stage Setter 8. When we move the any sliders down to fade to black, it is jerky and not smooth. In fact, when the slider gets near the bottom the light cuts off completely before it reaches the bottom, like an On/Off light switch.
