My band needs to put together a lighting setup. My partner bought a stage setter 8 package with 2 dimmer packs, but after reading the manual, I don't think the stage setter will do what we need.
We want to control a mixture of lighting for a stage and dance floor. The stage lighting is just par cans, and the dance floor lighting is a combination of different fx lighting.
There would not be anyone actively running the lights, so we need a controller that can run a simple chase pattern (or audio triggered chase) for the stage lighting, and simultaniously run a simple two step chase pattern on the dance floor lighting to let them alternate and cool down every few minutes.
Any suggestions on what to use that is cost effective? Or, of course, if I can do what I need with the stage setter 8, I'm totally open to a tutorial-4-dummies
