I have the Elation Compu Pro 06. DMX out only. I thought it was the one that had DMX in and out but after I bought it I found out that this one is discontinued and I don't see a DMX in module for sale anymore. Bummer.

Thanks! and No Problem. I made a design for a theater I help with, but as it got closer to the show the use of Compu Pro was tossed and I never got rid of the program. Its not very detailed and no lights are actually ploted except the work lights, but it helped who it needed to so I guess its a sucsess after all! -Homeboy

Jingles, Thanks for your help. I tried what you said, and here's what I found: 1. I do have my Cycle created under the Master page, so I tried using the Live Toolbar Button. I do see the size, dimmer and speed controls, but only when I have a scene (like Blue) selected. When I click my "Cycle 1" button, the size, dimmer and speed controls disappear and are replaced with the text: "Cycle: Cycle 1". It's like all of those features are being disabled b/c I'm running a cycle instead of a scene...

Hi John, Thank you for your responses as well. 1. I tried what you said and made my chase a Scene using Easy Step. After that I was able to control the speed via the Live Button Toolbar. So, in other words, I did not need to do anything further using Easy Time. I tried it any way (yellow button making the channels Easy Time), but it just seemed to mess up my chase, so I went back to making all channels Easy Step. I notice that the F7 and F8 keys allow me to adjust the speed up and down. Is...

Thanks, is-REAL

Re: Help with buying the best controller

elationpro ·
I think you hit it on the nail with DMX operator pro. I believe this will easily do what you want. Software is ok also, but the easystand alone will not allow you to run your color mixing LED's and have the par cans stay on at the same time unless you program that into the scene. Easy stand alone will probably be easier to get started on. its pretty simple. Best regards,

Re: question about mixed lighting

elationpro ·
It sounds like you need the DMX operator Pro. It does exactly that. Or the DMX DUO FX, it does the same thing as the Pro but without faders to dimm the pars.

Re: question about mixed lighting

elationpro ·
We'll now that I think about it, I don't think the DMX Duo will work. its intended for Intelligent lighting on one side, and effects lighting on the FX buttons. This customer has effects lighting, and par cans.. So his best bet would be Dmx operator pro. He can create chases for his effects lights on one half of the board and par can chases on the second half of the board.

Re: question about mixed lighting

mrkeyz ·
This is probably a stupid question... but since all of the lights we own are not dmx, i have to ask :P What is the significance of whether a controller is intended for intelligent/fx/par cans? For instance, why is the operator pro not capable of running par cans except on the last 8 channels? The operator pro looks like it has a street price close to some pc-controlled systems i've seen. Would we be better off just lugging one of our laptops with us and running things that way?

Re: question about mixed lighting

Jingles8302 ·
hey. actually there are no stupid questions here. we try to teach all we can to the customers so no worries about questions ok? also on the op pro the reason the faders are on the right side is just for convience of having two controller sides to the board it doesn't mean they are the last 8 channels. you can assign the pars cans dimmer packs to start at any channel on the board through your dimmer packs. if you wanna go for convience and low equipment carry around try compuware if you want...

OK WELL THE PRO BLOCKS THE FIXTURES IN 16 CHANNELS EACH. THAT MEANS THAT FIXTURE BUTTON ONE CONTROLS CHANELS 1-16 AND FIXTURE BUTTON CONTROLS 17-32 and so on and so on. so if you wanted to put 1 led one each fixture button they would need to be addressed as follows.

drew, are you talking about timing the DMX operator pro shows? If so, yes, you have to time it all with calculators and a bit of calculus! Regading live shows, you basically have to have a live operator. That's the way its done in the real world. You have all your cues (scenes) all stacked up nicely in a show (cycle) in the order your going to play them. Then for timing you set them to "GO". "GO" allows the scene to cue up till you hit "GO" again then it take you the the next scene in the...

You might want to check the sensor on the actual pan which is located inside the base of the fixture.Like you said when its upside down it shakes and when its upright it doesnt, that sounds like the pan stopper with the magnet on it by the pan wheel is either loose or out of place you might need to adjust The fastner.

Our rep, Jeff Mathis, suggested that controller. The lights will be 8 Par64 LED PRO and 4 American PAR56 (with a DP20L dimmer pack). Most church will do is change colors on the LED and dim the PAR56 fixtures. True that the Magic 260 will run both kinds of lights?

Re: Couple quick questions..

lightech ·
As far as computers are concerned, there are generally two fronts. The first is the ability to run your lights entirely from a software-based controller (like CompuWare), connected to a USB widget/dongle to send the DMX signal to your fixtures. The second one is the ability to trigger your regular DMX controller/console trough the use of MIDI triggers from a computer. In this situation, everything is programmed into the controller just like you would do for normal operation via the...

Yes, what you are describing are what a console would call a scene. A Scene is just a bunch of lights recorded (saved) to look a certain way when you bring up that scene. So for example, if you made scene 1 nothing but blue lights, when you hit scene 1 the blue lights would come on. If you made scene 2 red lights, the red lights would come on with scene two. If you made scene 3 red and blue lights, both the red and blue lights would come on when scene 3 is up. A series of scenes is called...

Re: Newbie looking for help/advice

Yes, you have 96 pages that you can add to 8 different books in different ways for each book. The console doesn't say how many pages per book, so I assume you can use as many as you want. Don't quote me on it though. Sometimes you will see something like number of steps per show or chase. So if it says 40 Steps per Show, that would mean each of your books can have 40 pages in it, but you can make up 96 different pages to use in the case of the DMX Operator Pro. Don't think of CompuLive so...

Re: lighting que fades

The system was already in place when I came into the position. I'm still working out the specs, but I can tell you that the software is Compu Pro 2006 using all hot keys and buttons in the program. So what basically happens now, is when I switch from one que to the next, instead of a smooth fade from a bright que to a dim one, it an abrupt change. There's no subtlety to it at all.
