I recently purchased 2 used units. My question is when programming the DMX address, with a standard incandescent fixture, can I just assign a dmx channel to the dimmer channel and have that channel control x number of fixtures rather than the standard LED lamp with dmx channel assigned to house master, Red to the next board channel and such? First time using icandescent with a programmable dimmer. Thanks for any help

Hi, if I understand your question correctly; You address the packs to occupy either 1, 2, or 4 DMX channels of Dimmer control. You can't say for example patch dimmer 1 at address say 13, and then dimmer 2 at address 20 on the same pack. Does this make sense? The addressing for each pack is linear.
Or am i not understanding your question?
Hi, I'm not sure what "House" is referring too, maybe Dimmer, as in Dimmer, Red, Green, Blue? That would be 4 channels.
But either way whatever the packs are set too, that is what you will have for addressing in a linear format.
If your console lets you assign fixture IDs for grouping, then you can change things around to how you see fit.
