  1. Hello Lor, I use a two computer setup for sequencing, Imac 27 with a resolution of 2560x1440 for the sequencer, and a windows pc for the visualizer on a 55 inch screen. ( that came flying in easily ;-)) Maximum workspace so to speak Do I understand right that this kind of setup is not possible in S5? Dick de Wit The netherlands
  2. New 4 port MP3

    Hello all did someone see the new 4port mp3 on the last show? Or a prototype? dick
  3. Oldest Sequencer Here?

    Ok guys competition is won easlily by the oldies. no problem, but for the future, who is the youngest?? And which group is larger, the young ones or the old ones? olmost grey myself, just turned 61 yesterday, surprisingly lots in the same group of 60+ , is sequencing some kind of after midlife crisis? And where are the people with the 46,XX genome Happy sequencing from The Netherlands Dick de Wit
  4. hello even more simple just use the color tool with the color on one side and choose black as color on the other side, so you can go from black to full color and reverse. can not be more easy to do dick
  5. Pixcon16 Dual Power Supplies

    Hello all, I am also building a controller today with two power supplies.And the V- of both power supplies come together on the pixie16. ( blue wires ) both rated 5V 30 A max. Because of the possible current I took two wires of 2,5 mm2 from the power supply to the pixie16, so total 5 mm2, for the low voltage side. 2,5 mm2 is about the same as AWG13. As 5 mm2 can load as much as 50 amp ( absolute maximum), this should be sufficient for each bank. Both power supplies have on the 230 Volt side a fuseholder with a fuse rated 6,3A for whenever a power supply would die. The wiring of the 230V is 1,5 mm2, about the same as awg 15. Because the current on the 230Volt is lower that 1 amp it is more than enough. 150 Watt max on 230Volt is about 0,66 amp. The holes for the outputs yet have to be drilled and are expected to be drilled near the lor connector, the same goes for the waterproof connectors for the lor network. That will be a total of 6 holes. 4 holes with pigtails and two rj45 waterproof connectors. Have a nice weekend Dick The Netherlands
  6. LOR on Mac OS X

    Hello I have been using vmware fusion already for a couple of years, and had not problems with lor software so far. I think it should work, use hardware util to test all to be sure. Regards Dick The Netherlands
  7. S5 release

    Hello Light-enthousiasts, Creativity is not a virtue of a programm, but of the mind. Dot not wait for a next release to start creating the show for 2017. Best regards Dick de Wit
  8. New 4 port MP3

    Hello All, All wise statements to be considered. It is only 9 months to decide what will be the best. So I will keep listening to all of you very well. It is a location without network connections, in a garden within the facility. Anyone can get there inside, thats what I meant with the need to be idiot-proof/resistant. All electronics are inside a glasfiber reinforced waterproof box, pretty strong, how to build a pc in there brings me to the concern of cooling. Thank you very much for thinking with me. Dick
  9. New 4 port MP3

    The location of the show is in a home for older people, a few miles away, it has to start on powerdown/powerup, whatever happens. It is directed by a table with three red big buttons. At this moment there is an enclosure, which containes, G3mp3 director, a few idmx 1000 , two Sandevices Elor, audio amplifiers and has to be totally idiotproof. A G3mp3 does the work perfectely, but as the show increases with even more pixels, it is hard to figure out what is the maximum possible in this configuration. I have the feeling I am at the edges of the capability. And I do not trust any pc to be so failproof. I have a pc ready to do the trick, but people caring for older people having to restart a computer and get it running is to much to ask. But thank you for thinking with mee. Dick
  10. New 4 port MP3

    Hello Lightorama How is the progress on the new MP3 player? Hardware support for new MP3 4 port director (not yet released) <<<<<<<<<<<<<============= I Are more details known already? Release date scheduled yet? As my setup is stand alone and unguided, it gets to the limits of the G3MP3, which I love by the way for the idiotproof action until now, I have to decide to go with Lightorama this year or to look for alternatives. Dick de Wit The Netherlands
  11. Hello dear light friends A question, does anybody know of a tool ( or how to) to read the config files on the sd card of an G3mp3 player. I want to check the settings, so I do not have to watch the whole 24 hour of the day if the whole show goes as planned. It is a stand alone setup, in an home for older people, I can not be there the whole day to check. Best regards Dick de Wit The Netherlands

  13. Ray Wu Power Supply

    Hello lightfans Especially with powersupplies of that much power do not use them if you are not sure how to! The risk of this much power available is to big to mess with. The current that this type op power supply can deliver could cause fire in an instant. Safety should always be your first concern! Even with 12 Volt. Just some thoughts from The Netherlands Dick de Wit
  14. new type mp3 player with four outputs

    I looked it up Posted July 26 it is in this page in the comment of Mike We have several new Pixel Controllers coming out, as well as new complete packages of ready to go pixel trees, a new 4 port MP3 director, and inexpensive pixel strings. The 4 port MP3 director will allow for running up to 4 separate LOR networks concurrently. This controller is designed from the ground up to use our (some what) new megabit RS485 speed (1000K), which in conjunction with ELOR protocol, as well as our new Pixie devices, brings pixel control to the masses.
  15. new type mp3 player with four outputs

    Good morning As far as my memory is intact, four high speed lor outputs. Greetings Dick
