Press the desired scanner (fixture button), and the corresponding LED will turn on. The individual channels
of the selected fixture are enabled to change the values, even when scenes are running, for on-the-fly
adjustments such as a colour or gobo change, or a change in positioning of the light output. When the fixture
button is de-selected, the individual channels of the fixture can not be adjusted and no visible changes will be
seen.
Description of functions:
- Scene button: Press this button to activate (or store in program mode) a scene. A scene can be described
as a static situation, where light is positioned in a particular way. When combining several scenes, a chase
can be made. A chase consists of several scenes, played in a continouos loop. Thanks to changing values
(movement or colours), the actions of your lighting will change every time another scene is activated in the
chase.
- Channel faders: Each fixture button has 16 channels. For every fixture, there are 8 physical faders, with A/B
page functionality so the faders can work on channel 1-8 or 9-16 thanks to a switch. Each channel fader
can be set to a value between 0 and 255.
- Page select: Switch from page A (1-8) to page B (9-16) and vice versa.
- Speed fader: Use the speed fader during playback of a chase. With the speed fader, the speed of changing
scenes can be set. This can be very fast (0.1s) or very slow (10 minutes) and everything in between.
- Fade time fader: Move the slider to adjust the fade time. The fade time controls the amount of time it takes
for a scene to go from one value to another. This way you can control fluent color changes (with RGB LED
fixtures) or fluent movement of your intelligent lighting (such as scanners or movingheads). Find the optimal
balance between the speed and fade time by experimenting.
- LED display: Showing chase, scene and bank information. Also shows LED indicators for Blackout, STEP,
Prog, Auto trigger and Music trigger.
- Joystick: Control the pan and tilt movement of intelligent moving light (movingheads, scanners). You always
need to patch the joystick to the pan/tilt channels of your devices. With the override buttons the selected
channels/fixtures can be overtaken during live use in a chase or scene.
- Chase buttons: Used to trigger one of the 6 chases, or used to select a chase when programming.
- Bank buttons: The controller is equipped with 30 storage banks for scenes. When programming, it is
possible to store scenes in one of the 30 banks. Every bank may contain 8 scenes. The 3 rd and 4th digit on
the display show the selected bank.
- Program: Press Program button for 2 seconds to enter the program mode. The corresponding LED will
blink. Press Program once more to return to the live mode.
- MIDI/Rec: Press the MIDI button when the controller is activated. The third and fourth digit of the display
will flash. Select the MIDI channel using the UP and DOWN buttons, press the MIDI button once more or any
other key excluding UP or DOWN to end the MIDI channel settings.
Press this key to make scenes or record chases when in PROGRAM mode.
- Auto/DEL: When in the RUN mode, press Auto/Del to activate the automatic chase run sequence. The
corresponding LED will turn on. Press the button once more to exit the automatic mode, the corresponding
LED will turn off.
Press this button to delete scenes and chases when in PROGRAM mode.
- Music/Bank copy: When in the RUN mode, press this button to activate the MUSIC mode. The
corresponding LED will turn on. Press the button once more to exit the MUSIC mode, the corresponding
LED will turn off.
Press this key to copy banks when in PROGRAM mode.
- Tap sync / display: When in AUTO RUN mode, use the TAP SYNC function to determine the amount of time
between two steps. This way it is possible to tap the button on the beat of the music, for music-synchronised
shows. The maximum amount of time between two steps is 10 minutes.
When in PROGRAM mode, use the button to switch between Step and Bank mode. When in any other
mode, use this function to toggle the displayed channel-values between 000-225 and 0%-100%.
- Blackout: Press this key to disable all visible output of the channels. The functions of the controller remain
available, for example when you want to change a chase in the climax of the music, or to activate a special
function to release at a specific moment.
- Fog machine button: Some fog machines are able to be used with this controller. When pressing the FOG
button, the controller sends a signal to the connected smoke machine and a 100% output will be activated on
the machine. Working with every smoke machine is not guaranteed as there are many different brands and
types.
- Fine button: This controller supports intelligent lighting fixtures with 16-bit pan/tilt movement. In most cases,
there are separate fine pan/tilt channels for optimal positioning of the beam. With the fine button, the joystick
switches from regular movement to fine movement.
- Mode button: To assign channels to the joystick or to invert the signal while using the joystick, the fine and
mode button should be pressed at the same time to enter the configuration menu.
- MIDI in: Use this 5-pin DIN connector to receive MIDI data from a MIDI-device, such as a button trigger,
keyboard or footcontroller.
- DMX polarity: Select the polarity of the DMX output. This function needs to be used when you use old
Martin lighting effects (Martin Protocol). The function inverts the signal of pins 2 and 3. When your lighting
fixtures don’t correspond properly to the values of the controller, switch the polarity to make sure that this
function does not cause the problem.
- Use this 3-pin XLR output to connect all of your DMX lighting fixtures. By daisy-chaining the fixtures and
selecting the proper DMX-adresses, it becomes possible to control every single fixture.
