  2. I'd love a copy of this! Pevely@seascape.ns.ca "I agree to not sell or share this sequence with anyone. This request will be used for my private, personal use on my show only. I also understand the mere fact of making changes to the borrowed sequence and pasting it in to my sequence does not make it mine to share". Thanks.
  3. I finally got around to experimenting with this in Audacity. Your step by step helped out tremendously Jim. At first I thought I was doing something incorrectly, but after getting the hang of it, it was quite easy. And I see now that Audacity even has more bells and whistles than the Music Editor I bought quite a few years ago. I'll be using Audacity more and more as I play around with all it's features. And it is so much better than the music editor software I bought and paid well over $300 for years ago! I'll probably keep it{the old Music Editor} around for some simple work here and there, but for more complex stuff, looks like Audacity can't be beat, and the price: "FREE!". It really surprised me in all it can do now, especially for the price{FREE!}, just a little time in downloading and installation.
  4. I don't use S5, but I do color shifts from one color to another with my RGB lights by doing a fade up to the first color, then use the full on for that color for the duration I want it on {for example 5 seconds}, then I fade that color down and fade up into the next color using the same process. Just keep repeating the process until you have the color you want to start with and end with. When using the fade up/down tool, always allow for an extra second or two for the fade up and fade down. You can also fade down to any intensity you want, that is if you don't want the first bulb to be completely off before the next fade up would occur, then fade down each color say to 20%-30% intensity, then at the end of the sequence fade down to 0%. This is how I do it in S4, I wouldn't think S5 would be much different in this respect. although there may be addition features in S5 that might make this easier to do, but I still use S4 myself. But how I accomplish this should work in any version of the LOR Software Suite.

  7. "I would like a copy sent to kakulp62@comcast.net" "I agree to not sell or share this sequence with anyone. This request will be used for my private, personal use on my show only. I also understand the mere fact of making changes to the borrowed sequence and pasting it in to my sequence does not make it mine to share". Thank You
  8. Thanks guys, that's what I thought, but couldn't seem to find anything. And my commercial editor, for some odd reason is "supposed" to do this, but no matter what I've tried, it just won't let me access the mix two separate files into one unbroken voice and melody track. So I thought I'd give Audacity a try and see if this could be done. Thank you Jim for the step by step. I'll give that a try and see how it works out!
  9. Okay, now that makes sense that you've explained it in a bit more detail. Like basis21b stated, it's all there in the manual at the link I posted. And from what I understand of it, what you want to do should be doable using the Hub. I think the HWU is limited to only a single trigger input. At least from what I could tell of it. I was going to see what the HUB could do with an SD Card and Triggers, but I've misplaced my SD multi-Card Reader/writer, so I couldn't test out the Hub to see what it could or couldn't do in writing a multi-trigger show. But from what I read of basis21b's comments, your new details and the manual, I think you should be able to pull it off.
  10. Just heard this song on the Aussie Forum YMCA By Furnace and the Fundamentals Does anybody have the Holiday Coro singing trees sequence for this song ? Thanks Dennis
  11. Just finished up the smart pixels singing bulb and tree props and gave it a quick trial run. The first 5 seconds of the song is of the Christmas tree running as a ghost with angry eyes (this should work for Halloween). I thought it turned out pretty neat. After that I use the Christmas tree with normal nodes programmed in as well as motion effect rows. Not sure if I really like it as it may be to busy while it sings the lyrics. Also used the singing bulbs as props till the backup singing kicks in. https://youtu.be/QJCt-VRTc9w @MattBrownCut and paste are both working like a charm in 5.4.2 as well as the auto flip!!
  12. Pages 21 -23 in the guide found at the link Orville posted has a good discussion of how to assign a show to a trigger and how to influence how they will behave. E.g Does it play one time or loop, can it be interrupted etc. I brought up the LOR HUB and it is confirming/indicating the show number corresponds directly to the trigger with that number . I checked in the Hardware Utility and if you choose the option "Plays when triggered" you then have to select the trigger. When you tell it to create the SD card the Hardware Utility then chooses for you the show number. Thus Show 1 would run when trigger 1 is activated, Show 2 when trigger 2 is activated and so on. If I understood your question correctly that would mean the SD card you create would contain Show 1, Show 2 and Show 3. Each show would contain the sequence(s) that you wish to run when the trigger is activated. The name of for the sequences can be anything, the Show number is the mapping to the trigger.
  13. James that would be very kind of you t o do that Blair
  14. Last week
  15. Glad I could help a fellow Canadian!
  16. We just released version 5.4.2, which fixes the issue with the "overlay" mode. Your candy cane spinner should work properly in the new version. Matt
  17. Sorry you are experiencing issues with the install. We just released version 5.4.2 which addresses some installation issues. Please give it try. Matt
  18. Today we released production version 5.4.2 of the Light-O-Rama Software Suite. This is an official production release, not a beta release. S5 fully integrates the Pixel Editor, Sequence Editor, and Visualizer into a single program and adds many enhancements to help you program large channel count stages. S5 uses a different methodology called 'Visual Sequencing' to create amazing sequences and has new automatic programming tools called 'Motion Effects' that will speed your sequencing. For more information on S5, please see the "Sequencer (Showtime 5)" section of our Tutorials and PDFs page on our main website. The latest S5 help can always be found online here: http://www1.lightorama.com/downloads/5.4.2/help/ How to check if your license covers this version To check whether or not your license covers this version, please go to the license retrieval page, and enter your email address (the one you purchased your license with). An email should then be sent to you with information about your license. The "Summary" section of the email will tell you whether or not your license covers the latest version. If the email says... Your license covers the latest version, 5.4.*. ... then your license already covers this version. You can use it without making any additional purchase. Please note, though, that your computer may not yet understand that your license covers this version, so when you install, it might tell you that you are running in Demo mode. In this case, simply reactivate your license (for example, via "Upgrade Light-O-Rama" on the Sequence Editor's "Help" menu), and your computer will then learn that your license is valid for this version. On the other hand, if the email instead says... Your license does not cover the latest version, 5.4.*. ... then your license does not cover this version. In that case, you have several options: Upgrading or Renewing Your License (1) You can continue using whatever version your license does cover (for example, perhaps your license covers version 4.1). (2) If you want to take this opportunity to increase your license level to take advantage of additional features, you can purchase a license level upgrade. This counts as a license renewal too - that is, your license will now work with this new version (and some future versions too). So, if you do this, there is no reason to also purchase a license renewal. (3) If you already own a Light-O-Rama license, but you do not currently own Light-O-Rama SuperStar, or if you want to upgrade SuperStar to a higher number of CCRs/channels, you could purchase or upgrade SuperStar. This also counts as a license renewal for the rest of the Light-O-Rama software suite, so if you do this, there is no reason to also purchase a license renewal. Please note that you must already own a license for the rest of the Light-O-Rama software suite in order to take this option. (4) If you do not want to purchase a license level upgrade or Light-O-Rama SuperStar, you can purchase a license renewal. Your license will now work with the new version (and some future versions too), at the same license level as it currently does. For example, if you have an Advanced license, it will remain an Advanced license, but it will now cover the new version of software. What's New in Version 5.4.2 5.4.2 resolves an issue with the installer; When some users enabled a show they might get an error stating ”Shows cannot be enabled because of an error. ActiveX component can’t create object/LORMonitor". Also, LORHub may crash when trying to create an SD card. Various other Bug Fixes and improvements. How To Get the Latest Version You can download the new version from the software download page. If that page lists a different version number as the latest version, please click your browser's refresh button. Thank You!
  19. They look very similar to mine. The shape gobos have different patterns though.Mine claim to be 60W and are pretty bright. Not beam forming of course unless it's foggy. I run mine off a spare LOR adaptor and had six of them outside, but under my eaves this year.
  20. I just acquired 2x Tomshine 80w moving heads at 90.45 each on ebay with free shipping. They arrived timely and work as described. I put them on a Killowatt meter and they are indeed 50watt LED power and up to 80watt total power depending on the action. Compared to the 8watt LED, 30watt total units I used the last two years, these are bright. Tomshine 80w tot 50w LED I do like the look and feel of the front buttons. The display options are unique. They have a blackout mode. I am using This DMX unit .
  21. I started with 32 AC channels in 2017 and last year (2018) added the PIXIE II and two CCR 50 strips Cosmic Color package to create 2 arches and what I call a horizontal firestick. I thought it was a GREAT way to get started. This year (2019) I added a second Pixie II with bulbs, and a third AC controller. Once you see some sequencing examples, you should be able to pick it right up.
  22. That is what was not real clear to me, naming protocols. As for the main versus secondary show, in my application the minidirector is the primary as I am using it in a stand-alone mode. It is not part of any other show. The intent is to have 3 shows available, each geared to a particular audience. Picking the button, 1, 2, or 3, is to cause the director to run one of the shows as chosen. (This is not the normal Christmas light show, rather an educational display for different groups where the controller will interact with both lights and animatronic actions.) Some channels will control lights, (dimming, as done with Christmas displays), others operate relays which interface with the mechanical aspects. The show sequencing determines function / light configuration and timing intervals.
  23. Thanks 'lanopie' the unlock is what I needed. I guess I should have grown with everyone and bumped to S4 then to S5....but learning all over is good. I will probably have more 'dumb' questions...sorry in advance.
  24. have you tried the "drag edges" or "nudge" features? That might do what you want
  25. Gilbert Engineering has a really cool new prop, Hattitude Triune. Anyone have a visualizer file yet willing to share?
  26. Sorry, you can't do it with a fixed timing grid, you need to create a freeform grid.
  27. Easy. 1 ) Open the music file. 2 ) Create a new track. 3 ) Open the vocal file (which creates a second instance of Audacity). 4 ) Select of the vocal, and copy. 5) Go back to the music file, and paste the vocal into the empty track. 6 ) Adjust as needed.
