  1. Hi Jim. I am getting ready to start my first pixel adventure ever with a tree similar to yours here. I have no idea of the complexities involved yet with sequencing pixels but if you had to take a guess, if you just focused on the tree and sequenced that whole song, how much time would it take you? Ballpark. Very nice display by the way!
  2. "I would like a copy sent to lindgrenpiano@gmail.com" "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 JR!
  3. I currently run Version 4.4.4 and have a 3 controller network with only incandescents. I am about to venture into the world of RGB for net years display. I am going to build a 4’ RGB tree. I think I have all of my components picked out but the Pixie 4 controller page recommends the Pro version of LOR. My question is: Is that a recommendation or is it MANDATORY that you have the Pro license. In other words, if you don’t will I not be able to sequence and run the tree?
  4. So help me with the hardware I would need to do what you did. 2 AC controllers....isn’t that what I have now? A Pixie 2 controller....is that one of the CCR controller packs that come with some RGB strings? Oh, and will my ELL network work with this?
  5. Sorry about the coming to a close. It is for me, as we are going to venture out of 85 degree FL and head to 0 degree MN for about 2 weeks. I am going to leave my show running and monitor it from afar to make sure all goes well. When we get back it will be time to dismantle. thus Coming to a close.
  6. Well....that gives me a little insight. I guess I am not married to ELL's. I could easily switch to a complete hardwired network. What I like though is the smooth transition of color capabilities such as the pixel trees. I assume that means my CTB controllers won't cut it and I would also need the high speed USB adapters. Would I need to upgrade my license as well to a higher level to be able to do the necessary sequencing? If I do smart pixels, if I am understanding it correctly, you need 3 channels for one bulb in order to get all color combinations? So one 16 channel controller could handle 5 bulbs? Wow....does it really cost a fortune in equipment to have a show with 100,000 lights? How can anybody afford this hobby?
  7. As the season will be coming to close soon, I have begun thinking about next year already. I currently have 4 - CTB16PC controllers but am only using 3 this year. I currently run S4.4.4 Standard Edition and after looking at S5, have no desire to go there. My entire display uses incandescents but I want to begin converting to LED’s. I currently use 2 - ELL’s to get my signal to the yard. I have watched videos for the RGB products & Singing Trees and quite honestly I don’t know what to buy or even what will work on my ELL network. Some guidance would be appreciated and in particular, what would be the least costly step to begin my transition away from incans. And if I need to upgrade either my hardware or my license as well. Thanks!
  8. What do you use to dub the audio back in Phil? Can Audactiy do that?
  9. Thanks all. I have now been working on my sequences with my MB Pro, since that machine is so much faster than the NEW Lenovo I bought this year to run my show. When I am done with a file I then copy it to the PC to insert into the show. However, I think I am going to experiment with my MacBook Air and try to get my show to run from it. Windows 10 just seems so slow just to even boot up to get to the LOR suite. Plus that way I will be able to more easily remote access in to the show if we happen to be gone a few days during the season.
  10. How can I change it to white so I can see the grid?
  11. Couple of messages from Help Desk and I got the Visualizer and Sequencer to work on the Windows side of my Mac. Now I can work on my files in the evening while the show is running on my PC! Just had to turn off Advanced Rendering Engine in the Vizualizer.
  12. Did you ever get your problem solved? Are you running LOR on your Mac via Parallels? I am trying to just use the SE & Viz to work on files while the show is running on my PC. The SE runs great but I can't get the Viz to show the lights.
  13. That's what Parallels is Phil....a VM that allows you to run Windows programs. I am currently running Windows 7 in the VM and have to decide if I want to go to 10 when support for 7 ends next month. Not looking forward to 10 at all.
  14. Parallels runs on Mac and allows you to run Windows simultaneously on your Mac. Simply swipe and you have all you Mac OS programs and swipe back and you have all your Windows programs.
  15. I think you are correct Keith that LOR may not "run" from the Mac. It sure looks like you can create/modify sequences while on the Mac. Actually the SE appears to run a lot faster on the Mac as well. I am just having trouble getting the Visualizer to run. I think I will open a ticket and see what they say about doing the sequencing/visualizing on the Mac with Parallels.
