Hello fellow Compu Live users!

Ive been working with 4 Elation Design Spot 250's and 3 Chauvet Par 200 B's on my Compu Live software for about 2 weeks now and I want to know if there is anyway to hook my Bahringer BCF2000 Mixer up, thru USB, so I can control my lights via my external faders rather than the digital faders on the software...

Any suggestions would be much appreciated ...

Thanks,

Yes. You simply hook up the BCf2000 to the computer via usb and then plug in the interface and start the software and it is all hooked up and ready to go. Did you need assistance on linking the scene or switches to the controller? Let me know.
Welcome to the forums.
Sincerely,
Yes,

Any info on how to use the Bahringer would be awesome. I would love to use the mixer to my advantage, especially in a live show atmosphere...

The faders are moving along with the digital faders when I open that window, but nothing is happening with the lights when I move the faders...

Thanks for the quick responce

I'll see if i can make a quick tutorial video. BUT please note that midi is NOT my strong suit. i barely understand it and am still learning. but i can show you how to assign scenes to the faders and pots on the BCF2000. I am hoping to have it up within the next 24 hours.
Sincerely,
you mean have the operator trigger scenes? no. just midi. However if you had a stage setter for example or a light desk you could use the DMX IN.
Sincerely,
If anyone has any information on how to use a set of external faders for dimming, color change, shutter speed, ect... (pretty much control those things on the fly after i have chosen a preset) would be much appreciated...

Also if anyone knows of anyone in the Cincinnati, Ohio area who does lights and you would think would like to help out a fellow light enthusiast, please dont hesitate to send their contact info my way...

Thanks,

D,

I would be happy to help you, especially somebody from Cincinnati which I hear is a huge Jimmy Buffett town.

I have setup CompuLive to work with my keyboard via midi. I can press a key to activate any scene (with a number of steps) I want. I have programmed a special key that activates a switch that allows the sliders to control color or dimming and rotary knobs to control speed.

It took a fair amount of trial and error, knashing my teeth, and a few obscenities uttered at Elation. But after therapy, I feel much better and it actually works perfectly, exactly as promised, and having an external controller is the way to go.

It was painful to get there. It might be best if we try and get you up and running using the phone. If you're interested, email me a convenient time (after business hours) for us to connect. bob dot condon at comcast dot net.
