Jingles, thanks for sending me that pdf file on the basics of dmx but now I have another question. I followed the directions in having the first DP-415 dimmer pak being channel 1 and the second DP-415 dimmer pak being channel 5. When I bring up faders 1 - 4 on buss A, the first 4 lights come on like I expect them to. But in order to get the other 4 lights to come on I have to bring up faders 16 - 19 on buss B. I looked through the manual and I probebly missed it somewhere but how do I get faders 5 - 8 to control the lights as well? I want to be able to set up so I can crossfade between A and B with light control on both busses having fadres 1 - 8 on buss A and faders 13 - 20 on buss B.
The controller worked great excpet it kept shuttng off. Turns out we had low power on stage fluctuating between 90 - 100 volts. This place was a PIT!!!! Good thing I was only running 1 power amp for my pa. I had to turn down the intensity of the lights and that kept them on. The audio in feature was great and performed fantastic. I will start to play with the programming features soon but want to learn the basic operation first so I can get 4 more lights for the drums. Any help you or anyone here on the forum can give me would be greatly appreciated.
