INTRODUCTION
Thank you for selecting the Martin Freekie. This ruggedly built, easy to use
controller offers 12 fixture DMX control and multiple triggering options.
Freekie allows control of up to 12 fixtures (or fixture groups, where each fixture
group comprises similar fixtures that mimic each others behavior). Each fixture or
group is controlled with 12 channels. A joystick is provided for easy pan/tilt
adjustment. The Freekie can also control strobe and smoke fixtures. A master fader
allows you to instantly fade all fixtures, and there are multi-purpose buttons which
you can customize to control additional DMX units.
For audio-controlled shows there is the choice of either external signal input or the
Freekie's own internal microphone.

The Freekie is not for domestic use.
Use the device only as described.
Do not expose the device to rain or moisture.
Make sure the device is properly grounded.
Do not operate the device with the cover removed.
Immediately repair or replace damaged power cords.
There are no user-serviceable parts inside; refer all service to a qualified
technician.
Introduction
2
INSTALLATION
The Freekie comes with the following:
• 9 volt, 1 amp transformer
• User manual
POWER
The device is powered by a 9 volt DC transformer that is supplied with the product.
Connect this to a mains supply and plug it into the DC9V input at the back of the
Freekie.
Note
If the plug on the transformer supplied does not match those in
use in your country you may need to purchase an adaptor.
Alternatively, any 9 volt DC transformer with an output of 1 amp
can be used.
CONNECTING THE SERIAL LINK
About serial s li nks
The Freekie sends instructions through a serial data link. The link goes from the
controller’s output to the input of the first lighting fixture and then from the fixture’s
output to the input of the next fixture. It continues output-to-input in a daisy-chain
to all fixtures.
Up to 32 fixtures can be placed on a serial link without amplification.
Adaptor cables may be required when building the data link. There are two
differences to be aware of. First, both 3-pin and 5-pin XLR sockets are common.
(Martin fixtures have 3-pin XLR sockets. On fixtures that have 5-pin XLR sockets,
pins 4 and 5 are not used.)
Installation
3
T o bu il d th e seri al l in k
1.
Use shielded twisted-pair cable. A reliable data connection begins with the right
cable. Microphone cable cannot transmit DMX data reliably over long runs. For best
results, use only cable designed for RS-485 applications. Your Martin dealer has a
range of cables, connectors, and adaptors designed for lighting control.
2.
Starting from the controller, connect output to input. Four parallel DMX outputs, two 3-pin, and two 5-pin are provided on the Freekie.
3.
Never use a “Y” connector to split the link. If you need to split the serial link
into branches use a dedicated splitter/amplifier such as the Martin 4-Channel
Opto-Isolated RS-485 Splitter.
4.
Don’t overload the link. Placing more than 32 devices on a link can cause
unpredictable performance.
5.
Always terminate the link by installing a termination plug in the output socket
of the last fixture on the link. The termination plug, which is a male XLR connector with a 120 ohm resistor soldered between pins 2 and 3, “soaks up” the control signal so it cannot reflect back down the link. If a splitter is used, terminate
each branch of the link.

Installation
DMX ADDRESS SETTING
3
Each fixture connected to the serial link must have a DMX address, also known as a
start channel, which is the first channel the controller uses to send instructions to the
fixture. Fixtures of the same type that share the same address will mimic each others
behavior.
Freekie allows control of up to 12 fixtures or fixture groups. (A fixture group
comprises similar fixtures with the same DMX address.) The Freekie can control
the first 12 channels of each fixture, or group, and can activate smoke and strobe
fixtures. The Freekie assigns 12 channels to each fixture regardless of how many
channels it uses, therefore the DMX addresses have been pre-defined.
Assign the following addresses using the procedure that is required for each fixture
(refer to the user documentation for the fixture if you are in doubt as to the
procedure). The address is often set on the fixture using a DIP-switch, while others
use electronic address setting.

PLAYBACK
This section describes the built-in options for executing shows.
RUNNING A SHOW
To select and run a show:
1 Select the appropriate bank with the < or > buttons. Note that you can change banks
whenever the SHOW button is toggled off (when the indicator is not lit).
2 Press SHOW.
3 Select a show using one of the numbered buttons (1-12). The show will start to run
immediately, and will run in a loop. You can select a range of shows by pressing and
holding the first and last show number buttons. The selected shows will run in a loop
when executed.
There are three ways to execute shows:
• Execution using programmed scene times, or
• Music trigger execution to the beat of the music, or
• MIDI show execution
Execution using programmed scene times
Shows will run using their programmed scene times when the FADE
TIME/PITCH fader is in the middle position.
Music trigger execution
Music triggered scene changes are enabled by the built-in microphone, or from
audio signals from an external microphone. In Control-By-Audio mode the Freekie
will change scenes to the beat of the music (wait times in scenes will not be used).
To activate music trigger execution set the FADE TIME/PITCH fader to the zero
position. CONTROL BY AUDIO will appear in the display.
MIDI tr iggering
Some differences in MIDI triggering capability exist between software versions. To
find out which software version your Freekie is running, switch on the Freekie. The
software version number appears in the display during startup.
Playback
13
SOFTWARE PRIOR TO VERSION 1.2
In all versions of the Freekie’s software prior to v.1.2, when the Freekie is
connected to a MIDI device, and is in SHOW mode (the SHOW indicator is lit), the
first 24 keys on the MIDI device can be used to trigger show execution.
• Keys 1-12 are used to activate corresponding shows in the first bank
• Keys 13-24 are used to activate corresponding shows in the second bank
However, in these software versions, MIDI triggering works only in the active bank.
MIDI keys 1 - 12 work only when bank 1 is active, and MIDI keys 13-24 work only
when bank 2 is active (to make a bank active, it must be selected – see “Running a
show” on page 13).
SOFTWARE VERSION 1.2 AND LATER
From software v.1.2, when the Freekie is connected to a MIDI device, and is in
SHOW mode (the SHOW indicator is lit), the first 36 keys on the MIDI device can
be used to trigger show execution.
• Keys 1-12 are used to activate corresponding shows in the first bank
• Keys 13-24 are used to activate corresponding shows in the second bank
• Keys 25-36 are used to activate corresponding shows in the third bank
From software v.1.2, the bank does not need to be selected manually to make it
active – the Freekie will play shows in any of the first three banks if triggered by a
key from 1-36 on the MIDI device.
UPGRADING FROM EARLIER SOFTWARE TO VERSION 1.2
If you have an earlier software version and wish to take advantage of the improved
MIDI triggering capability available from software v.1.2, contact your Martin
dealer, who will be able to upgrade your Freekie.
“STOPPING” A SHOW WHEN USING MIDI TRIGGERING
Because the Freekie runs selected shows in a continuous loop, it can be a good idea
when using MIDI triggering to record an inactive show in which all the fixtures are
dimmed, so that a show can be “stopped”.
MANUAL CONTROL OF INDIVIDUAL
FIXTURES DURING SHOW PLAYBACK
Note:
When you take manual control of a fixture it stops performing
its pre-programmed show.
To take control of an individual fixture, or group of fixtures, during show playback:
1 Press FIXTURE.
14
Playback
2 Select a fixture, or fixtures, using the numbered buttons (1 - 12).
3 Use the faders to override the programmed effects for those fixtures. For example, to
change the programmed mirror movement speed of one or more scanners during a
show, you would set the pan/tilt speed channel to the desired value. (The DMX value
does not change until the fader is moved.)
4 Normal program execution resumes when FIXTURE button is deactivated.
INTENSITY CONTROL
The master fader controls the intensity of all the fixtures.
BLACKOUT
In blackout mode, the Freekie blacks out all the fixtures by setting their dimmer
values to their minimum level (see “Fixture set-up” on page 8).
Press BLACKOUT to activate blackout mode, Press it again to reset the fixtures to
the current scene.
Blackout does not affect the follow-spot fixture if this has been activated (see
“Follow spot” on page 15).
DYNAMICALLY MODIFYING FADE TIMES
You can dynamically adjust the fade and wait times in a show up or down using the
FADE TIME/PITCH fader.
FOLLOW SPOT
Ensure that you have configured a follow-spot fixture and scene. See “Follow-spot
set-up” on page 10.
To use the follow-spot:
1 Press the SPOT button (the indicator will light up) during scene show playback. The
show will continue to be played normally with the exception of the follow-spot fixture.
2 Use the joystick to move the follow-spot effect. To use smaller movements press
FINE.
During the follow-spot scene the faders can be used to control the first 12 channels
of the follow-spot fixture.
Playback
15
To deactivate the follow-spot scene press SPOT again so that the red indicator is no
longer lit.
Note that you can dim all the other fixtures using the BLACKOUT button. This
will not apply to the follow-spot fixture.
SMOKE EFFECTS
Ensure that you have configured the Freekie to use smoke effects. See “Smoke setup” on page 10.
Activate smoke effects by pressing the SMOKE button and holding it as long as
required.
While the SMOKE button is being held the faders can be used to control the first 12
channels of the smoke fixture.
STROBE EFFECTS
Ensure that you have configured the Freekie to use strobe effects. See “Strobe setup” on page 9.
Activate strobe effects by pressing the STROBE button and holding it as long as
required.
While the STROBE button is being held the faders can be used to control the first
12 channels of the strobe fixture.
