    only change dip 10 on units which you want to do a different thing to the master unit as it creates an inversion ( barrells will spin/pan in opposite direction and colours will be different ) if you are running 4 heads i would turn on dip 10 on heads 2 and 4

    Only you can answer that. Most of your punters probably wouldn't notice the difference. It's basically do you want your show to be that bit more customisable for your needs and your expectations of your rig

    It is in a college but the money is seperate and does not nessasarily come out of the colleges' budget. Most of the bulding work and maintanace is provided by the college. Equipment e.g. lighting, speakers come out of the Miskins own budget.

    So what does your job involve, do you have a title? Who are you working with?

    Hi,

    So a DMX light will react/move the way you programmed it,but is there a way to get them to react to the music like sound to light does but with the settings you have programmed.Or everytime the music rhythm changes you have to manually change the speed setting?

    So how ive read the first post the lights dont exactly move to the rhythm of the music but do move the way you have programmed them?

    Cheers..

    Chips.

    Yes, providing the desk will support that many channels. I use a dimmer rack at most discos along with scanners etc. No problems should be inccoured if the desk will handle however many DMX channels all the fixtures + the dimmer add up to
