  1. Might be interested if he passes or only wants part of it
  2. well for starters amazing home!!! id definitely take advantage of the 4 dominant post on the porch for light poles (fire sticks) also the big 3 set windows you can do individual windows or bank each set of 3 together upper and lower love the A frame up high but will be risky for setup! (even the geometric shapes cut into the face of the A looks awesome!) outline the upper level gutter and then you have each little window and the front door etc... but as others have stated the use of RGB flood lights maybe your better option?? snag up some of the 50w or the 8 pcks when the sale starts (anytime now) possibilities are endless really just depends on your willingness to get up there on top!
  3. iv went over everything many times this being my 3 year lor and over 200ch im familiar with making sure all the channels match accordingly, i got the trees to work great and the monsters do too it just drives me insane that during the O face on all 4 monster the upper lip seems to stay on for whatever reason... im going to rock it up to being a flaw in the prop?? ill see when the faces get here ill run a live test sorry for the poor grammer typing on a phone sucks in a hurry lol*
  4. update i tried the singing trees and they work great! so i must have a problem with either my sequence cant be interchanged with the monsters or... i need to download a new prop??
  5. i will take a video and post it to better explain my problem.... i purchased 14 sequences from holidaysequences.com and i love them i watched all his videos etc, i got the singing monster props and made them fit the correct channels and so on but when i play the downloaded sequence it looks like crap, granted he has the big rope light looking faces and i have the monsters from holidaycoro i figured the mouth movements would all be fairly close.... i have been working for 3 days on 1 sequence and i still cant get anything to properly align or look half way decent i changed his channel config a little and (original) eye eye lid right eye lid left top mouth middle mouth bottom mouth O E (my version to work with the monsters and 8ch) Face (outline) eye eye lids top mouth middle mouth bottom mouth O E i did add a channel above the eyes for the face on the sequence and set all the channels correctly to my controllers... faces 1&2 are on controller #9 faces 3&4 are on controller #10 do i need to get a refund on them and order only from holiday coro or from fellow singing monster sequencers??? STUMPED AND BUMMED these wer the big additions for this year lol and the main focal point of our Halloween display
  6. Me personally i love the look of mine being 16ch all red all same direction... it gives you a lot of freedom as to slow or fast spirals... i used c6 light strands to give a bit fuller look without doubling the strands and also i dont see the point in wrapping a separate set in the opposite direction i would do as George described and run the strands together even though your not doing that to achieve the same look like George being that yours will be 2 separate colors and separate channels it will mainly help with setup and teardown just my 2cents
  7. i have all of my elements grouped by color as stated above example: window 1 red window 2 red door red window 3 red window 4 red roof red window 1 green window 2 green door green window 3 green window 4 green roof green i use mine like this to create washes of color across the house and to create chases to change color instead of all switching at the same time and also to use multiple color variations

    sequence ?

    I use 0.04 or 0.03 for all my timing and have only had to alter a timing grid on one song to get the exact timing needed.... usually i have no issues as going to .04 is 1/25th of a second
  9. i am wanting to add a few light poles bunched together for animations and possibly a count down to start the show... i already have all the lights needed to make the poles if i do 8- 12' poles and 8 ch. per pole but now im thinking ill need more than 8 poles after going back and watching the downs family Christmas he has 16 poles and his distance from his display helps my poles would be less than 20' from the road..... i have a few questions though is 20-25' too close to the road to do them and get the right effects? if thats okay what would the recommended spacing be between poles? how many poles do you need to make a decent animation and not look super choppy or spread out?? and also is there any easier way to program arrows or rings moving or numbers etc ?? like an extension program maybe?? example \/ \/ \/ off to the left of his display infront of the mega tree
  10. i deff recomend odd number of channels i have 7ch arches and 9ch light poles
  11. i think im going with the base in a straight line like a pixel or ccr tree and im just buying extra lights and ill have to try it out
  12. I know that some have said the Martha Stewart lifgts do not fade but i have had target Phillips brand and ge and some from Walmart and they all worked fine last year but this year i went to all sealed fullwave leds from holiday light express. Com good luck & Merry Christmas!
  13. well we are planning our additions for next year and we are doing 2- 10' and 1- 20' tree on the roof ridge line all 3 will be 2d trees built similar to a pixel tree frame, a pole and a base of aluminum angle iron with hooks to attach each strand and a hook head on top. i have the trees drawn out and my dad will be building them in his fab shop for me as well as a platform to use on the roof to support the weight and distribute the load my only question is whats a good amount of lights to start with on the trees i was thinking 12 strands of red green and blue 35ct c6 leds on the 10' trees 24 strands of red green and blue 70ct c6 leds on the 20' trees (main question on this one would 12 suffice or do i need to do 24?)
  14. Made it out to see them and man we were blown away!!! Excellent job
  15. Awesome display!!! my recommendation on the bass is an inline Equalizer for the amp supplying the outdoor speakers and turn down the low frequencies, or load the song into audacity and put an eq on the track that cuts the lower freq.
  16. awesome job!!! and amazing first sequence! especially with out the visualizer that thing is a god send for me but i took allot of time and have it mapped out exactly like our house i think if you got the visualizer set up properly for him or with him i bet he would enjoy it but as you said if he doesn't want to use it then no harm done but as the display grows or if grows it may become harder for him to picture exactly whats happening but to each his own and as i stated before outstanding job!!
  17. Thank you sir iv been a musician for 20+ years and had a home recording studio so that helps and hurts me at times lol
  18. Thank you! the trees do more than that but im always open to new ideas
  19. thank you here are some other shots we got with his Canon 5D MKII on a tripod
  20. Thank you! They are time consuming but fairly easy to build
  21. let me know what you guys think i had allot more that i needed to put up but honestly since we started over this year everything is brand new all new props and lights i got kinda burnt out lol but i might still keep adding a little here and there like i have 150 strobes i need to put up and i have roof ridge line lights and i also have roof grid lights but as i said i was sick of working on lights every spare min this is just a snippet of a few songs to give people an idea of our show
  22. 50ct c6 from HLE on each channel next year both trees will be 3 colors
  23. Made pvc for my mini trees and dried then bagged the plugs on my candy cane spinners and bam no more gfci trips!! Edit** Ran all night & still on with no issues and has been a down pour of rain all week!!
