  1. Music Copyright laws???

    I for one understand mikes stance on all this.... Many years ago in a rock band in Alberta Canada in a tiny hick town doing a back 3 filler, the band i was doing sound for, got hit by some bottom feeding jerk that screamed SOCAN. All said and done, cost the band some 24000 bucks for back fines and all to be legit for the next 3 years after that. It was long ago and far far away. But the awful taste it left in my mouth is still there today....
  2. Leaping Arch Wireing

    FWIW...if you make multi cables. Treat them like GOLD having a wire or 2 go bad in the middle of the show or even worse, eratic is devistating.. big coils when handling ( more wires in cable means more distance for the outside wire than an inside wire you can strech a wire to the point of breaking if you coil too tight). No "tugging" to loosen. Don't pry connectors apart and wiggling back and forth is a total no no!!

  7. Neghbors house issues/ Help

    FWIW I would guess that the 2 houses are on the same transformer on the pole. HIS house most likely has a weak or problematic nutural on the pole. This would explain why HIS lights are flickering. I have a video on youtube about open nutural. If anyone wants to watch it...
  8. Great! But how?? I use groups. Never used tracks yet
  9. I know someone answered this for me a couple of years back, however, I can't remember the post, (even though I started it....) Placing the waveform view many places within the same sequence editor display, the channel map is simply to tall to scroll up and down to get the timings for the channels that are off the bottom of the screen... I Know i have done this, I think George Simmons was the person that showed me, but for the life of me I can't remember the "how to".... Memory's great, just real short............ Greg
  10. DMX 5 pin vs DMX 3 pin

    FYI the 5 pin version was more for "stage lights" where the primary set (2/3) was used for light color and intensity, and the secondary set (4/5) was used for head placement and angle. It comes from first generation "Varilites" back in the 80s
  11. E1.31 Mega tree / roof outline / matrix

    You got boss !! The next subnet up would be which would give you 254 x 254 = 64,516 addresses and you would be outside of the 192 private address assignment ( there is also a second group. IMSC it's 169. Or something like that. But most ppl do not use it. Corp ifrastructure does however.
