Re: Need help w/ DMX Operator

Hi DJ, Yes it could be bad. If the DMX driver chips are damaged, then they will still work sound active. Try using your friends board and a light also to see if both your lights and controllers work. If it is DMX drivers, then you will have to send it in for service. No other way around it. Elation makes this device. DMX Branch 4. It is created to supress over voltage to the DMX signal. Once overvoltage goes through the line it takes everything out. However most people don't sell this or...

Hi DJ, Those six lights are a nice set up. Your show will be looking good. What you need to learn is a few things to get going. 1. make sure you assing the right light to your fixture buttons. I'm not sure if the entour is in the memory of the magic so you may need to download the profile from the website and load it into your board using your U-link cable. If you don't have the u-link cable then you should get it. Once the fixtures are assigned the next step is to learn how to create 1...

I guess I'll try to make one. It's still a bit surprising/disappointing that Elation/American DJ doesn't offer such basic support on for new products, but purhapse they didn't intend for the Dynasty scan to be used for this sort of thing... Thanks again for all the help!!

Yes.. I am sure if you contact the service rep who took your order will be more than happy to take the part back. Keep in mind that anything is possible with moving lights.. They are like cars.. sometimes you need to see what's under the hood of your car. In many DJ lights, they say don't open your lights or your void your warranty. Not true with Elation lights. They are made to be opened up and serviced and checked out. This is what makes them run longer than other fixtures. Best regards,

Oh man I can't tell you how much I laughed at that! Ok anyways, DMX, it really is a cool thing. Here are some basics. DMX stands for D igital M ultiple X . It is a way for each and every (DMX Compatible ) light, made by any manufacturer, to interact with an universal DMX controller. In a standard DMX protocol (called 512-DMX protocol) there are a total of 512 "channels" In order to get your lights to interact with the controller, you must address them. There are 2 ways (that I know of) that...

Lighting doesn't just light. It helps set the mood and accents the room as well. Movement is also a part of lighting, and with it adds another dimension.

Re: ADJ X-Move LED moving head...will there be an elation version soon?

Not at all buddy. they are barely getting these off the ground. Even if a higher power fixture comes out with more features.. it will probably still be on the DJ side of lighting. In my opinion is still Novelty gear.. Because 4 of those would work very well in my living room. and smaller DJ gigs. We have the Impression at the moment. Best regards,

Only other type of fluid I have used in an X-310 is American DJ Fog Fluid, and the stuff is pretty much the same as X-Fog (Same family of companies).

The console is a Road Hog. Great fun, 2 touch screens, 4 universes, 3 USB ports, 40 gig internal hard drive. The LEDs down front are so you can see your paperwork in a dark theatre/work space. You can easily set the intensity of it if need be. I was also just informed I may be doing a huge party with DJ Fat Joe and DJ Jazzy Jeff in January. I will have to make sure I have my camera guy there for that one. Naturally, I will have my Elation toys there .

Re: Compuware 04 problem

elationpro ·
Hi DJ, I know you are new to the forums, however it is proven over and over the the USB interface does not transmit as strong a dmx signal as control board or console because it is powered through USB. It is for this reason that a DMX splitter / booster is highly recommended. A DMX splitter / booster is recommended for all lighting set ups and people don't know it, but for the software I would say its mandatory. It also works as a protection for your interface. Best regards,

Matt, Is this the American DJ SC8 System? If so, it's limited to 15 amps per switch pack. So you'll need to purchase an additional switch pack in order to run two different circuits.

hmmm at around 2,000 huh? Do you want LED lights? moving heads? Scanners? DJ effects? Let me know. for 2 grand i would say try to get maybe a pair of design spots for starters. If you go with ADJ your choices open up a bit more at that budget. But with elation we are a bit more expensive but all of our products are totally worth the money and you wont find a similar fixture at that price with the same features. Sincerely,
