JUICER: SETUP (PATCHING)
1. In order to control and fixture, a profile for that fixture must be patched to the DMX
Universe. To make this process simpler we represent one universe of DMX in a similar
way to one year on a calendar app. Each address represents one control feature (intensity,
color, color temperature, etc.) and is similar to a day in a year. Each lighting fixture is
treated similarly to a multi-day calendar event (like your last commercial shoot or trip to
Tahiti)
2. Tap the portion of the DMX grid containing the desired starting address for lighting
fixture you are patching.
3. Scroll through the profiles on the left to find the corresponding profile. Make sure the
profile selected corresponds with correct mode on the fixture you are using. For example,
the Skypanel has 16 different modes that can be selected on the fixture.

5. Enter desired name. Select icon and color to represent lighting fixture. Tap PATCH
6. You can adjust the starting address by scrolling through the start address menu.

leave empty addresses in between the m by entering a value next to gap. Remember to
make sure the starting address of each light matches where the profile is patched.

can also change the name, color and shape representing the fixture.
