I have a request (Or if its already here, can you help me find it?)
Ill try to put this in understandable terms. What Im looking for is a "button" i can program to select other buttons. for example....
Pars Djsopts Lasers
1 A a
2 B b
3 C c
4 D d
5 E e
My screen (live) is set up as shown above. I have 3 lighting trees, as shown, 1 for pars (12345), 1 for djspots (ABCDE), and 1 for lasers (abcde). (#'s, and letters represent buttons). To set the light for a slow song, I have to press 3 buttons 5, C, and b, to get the "Blue" effect I desire. Hard to do with a laptop using a touchpad. Is there a way to program a SINGLE button to press the 3 I need? Perhaps a special "SCENE" button that "presses" the other buttons assigned to it. Right now thats hard to do when mixing music with one hand and selecting the lights with the other.
That way I could have a single "Slow" button, to select the combination of "buttons" I like for that effect. And I would still have the option of changing a single tree effect by pressing another button to "Override" the Group selection.
Another feature I would like to see is a programmable "Override" button, perhaps tied to the spacebar, that when pressed runs a single program only as long as it is pressed. When the key is released it would RETURN to whatever show was running before it was pressed.
This would be handy in making a "FLASH BLINDER" button to select 1,a and A, (Which are all white in my settings), to temporary turn all lights white to "blind" the audience for certain points in my show. Although I can program a button for this effect, I have to select the 3 buttons manually again to return to the previous show, and this is impossible if you want to manually "Flash to the beat".
I used 3 trusses in the example above, I actually have 7. And up to 15 buttons under each of them. Now you can see my problem.
Thanks for your time.
