  1. Does any one have a singing face of Nat King Cole's "The Christmas song" that they can share ? Also need the music used info - web site, album etc to ensure correct sinking. Thanks in advance
  2. This is a photoelectric switch. it projects a beam to a reflector and activates a relay when the beam is broken. It has a 4 mtr sensing distance and operates off 24 - 240 volt ac or 12 to 240 volt DC The switch triggers a internal relay - it does not output voltage - it will just make a contact so it should be perfefct for your input pup https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Omron-Photoelectric-Switch-E3JK-R4M2-24-240VAC-12-240VDC-New-JO1/222889695572?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  3. I intend to run part of my display using an MP3G3 . Upon power up I would like to run a looping "lights on" program. When someone walks down my driveway I want a photoelectric switch to "shut off" the looping program and activate a second program/sequence which activates a talking green meanie. My plan is to use an Omeron E3jk-R4M2 photoelectric switch, which has a distance detection of 4 metres. The unit itself operates off 12 volt DC and uses an inbuilt relay to bridge the connection header of the MP3G3. - whichI believe is the same as pressing a momentary contact push button switch? Not having the parts to test my plan, I am wondering how the header/MP3G3 will behave with the use of the photoelectric sensor. for example 4 people walk through the display single file and each person activates / triggers the photoelectric cell twice with a left and right foot step. This would send 8 triggers to the MP3G3. Does the MP3G3 have an inbuilt software "lockout" which does not allow the trigger(S) to be recognised until the triggered sequence has been completed and the first sequence resumed, or does it keep count of the number of triggers and keep playing the second sequence until the number of triggers reach zero or does it keep reactiviating the associated sequence (without finishing the sequence) everytime it receives a trigger ? Thanks in advance for your help
  4. Well, I mucked that post up My unit is identified 1602MP3G3 showtime MP3 director. Thanks Jim for the link to the documentation. Browsing the list I find I do not have do not have the LOR1602MP3 as such, as there is no light controller. Further investigation reveals it actually a DC-MP3. So totally confusing as it is a stand alone unit with LOR1602MP3G printed on it Long story short. i have the manual and now know what the rotary dial is for. Thanks again Jim
  5. I have a LOR 1602MP3 controller among my stash of second hand equipment I purchased a couple of years ago. I am wanting to use it as a standalone with a talking face and other sequences activated by a PIR at the front of my property. I have purchased the necessary input board and other equipment and will soon start assy and testing. I have no instruction manual for the 1602MP3 controller and notice there is a rotary dial on the board like the one used on the CMB16D to assign controller # What is this for, do I have to set it and what should it be set to? Thanks for your help.
  6. JR, my friend. All the best to you and your family for the this festive season and the New Year. Your Carol of the Bells (Barlow Girls Dub step) has been a great hit with all who view it. Thank you for making my presentation better than I could possibly do myself. My friend, I have another challenge for you for the New Year - if you have not already done it. Micheal Buble - Jingle Bells - Peter
  7. Thank you Alan. The problem was the codecs and the container. Converting the MP4 to AVI solved the problem .
  8. James, may I have a copy please pjroeland@gmail.com Could you also supply music details please.
  9. Hi all. I am new to this and I want to add video to my LOR Show. I have S 4.3. 14 Pro and I cant figure out how to get video to work. I create a new project and add the video file (MP4) . LOR .converts the media and opens in the SE screen with the audio of the file on display I then click Edit >Preferences>Video Preferences. and check "Display Video" and "Use full screen" I select the video monitor to be used - which is the laptop screen that I am using Then I click View>Video Show video and full screen is ticked. When I press play , the SE scrubber runs across the screen. The audio is heard, the channel buttons flash, but I do not see video anywhere. What have I done wrong, or not done to enable the video to display ? I only have a laptop with the laptop screen. No other monitor connected.
  10. I haven't seen the 6ft singing tree yet. They will be shown at a Queensland mini in June I believe they are a Christmas tree with aluminium wire frame eyes and mouth hung over the tree. The older type are an aluminium wire frame. 5mm (13/64) diameter seems to be the go here in Oz. I am considering having One of these ft Singing trees as my main singer with the Coro trees as my back up singers, I am also contemplating camouflaging the singing Coro trees by installing all green LEDs over them to make them look like plain Christmas trees and then switch them to the singing trees when needed. Just a thought - time is running out with all the other life plans and unexpected events thrown in.
  11. Here's a link to a new type of singing Christmas tree we have in Oz - these are 6ft in height as apposed to the older frame type There is still the option like I have which are the Corro Singing trees.
  12. Interesting replies Here in Australia we do not have /use anything over 32 Volt dc for our lights. Mains voltage lights are virtually non existent. As a newbie to this fantastic hobby, I developed the CLAP (Christmas light addiction problem) and now have 30 (2nd hand) controllers I progressed from string lights that have their own controllers to the LOR family of controllers. I am using: CMB24 for my "Dumb" RGB strip lights, Strings and Floods. CMB16 D QC for my Single colour String lights and Singing Faces (Christmas trees) If you are using "Smart" RGB lights then you will need to use the PixieCon16 controller. Dumb RGB = all led on a string will be the same colour and will be all on or all off Smart RGB = each led on the string can be any colour you want and you can have any led on or off
  13. Dude, for the best sequencing, drop JR a line at his "Accepting Free Singing Face Request" thread. Totally awesome work. JR will sequence your request when he has time. Jr also has his library that may have what you are looking for JR does not sequence anything that is already commercially available.
  14. Just sent first 30 seconds to you Glad you liked COTB JR Wow JR Thanks for the "re-worked," newer dubstep version of COTB I just requested. This version is not as good as I thought it would be It's BETTER. It's ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC I so love it - it's a definite keeper. I so don't know how you kept up with tempo of those Lyrics Thanks again - i really appreciate all that you have done.
