  1. Also Mega mentioned the Cat5 and thinking to rule it out, I would suggest swapping out the Cat5 cable. I've had bad ones in the chain that didn't affect other controllers down the line. I even have a cat5 cable tester that showed it good but had interference issues internally when the show was running. I wouldn't rule it out completely. It's worth a try just because funny things happen with our hobby.

    I use the same effects that I use on my mega tree.

    Doesn't look like PEX pipe. Looks like the HDPE from McMaster-Carr.

  13. Running a show to live music

    I did this for my son years ago when he was in a small band playing a song for a talent show. Along with the stage lights I sequenced, I added a couple small lights on a separate channel and shielded those lights from the audience seeing it so only the band members could see it. Those little lights were timed to the beat of the song. Worked great.

    Carsten, When using/borrowing someone else's sequence, it's not for the purpose of using the props/channel config in that sequence, it's about using timing and effects during the sequence people tend to look for. So basically how I would do it is, taking a previously created sequence and copy and paste from each channel or portion of a channel and pasting to your new sequence. So it could still be hours remapping but it sure saves the large amount of time of putting in the timing and provides examples of effects used by someone else. I'm very picky on my timing so sometimes it may not be worth me using someone else's sequences if I have to go in a add or change the timing. I have created majority of my sequences in the past 12 years and have only a few I have borrowed mostly because I didn't have time to create them myself but wanted them in my show for that season. With hundreds of channels (not pixels), it takes a good amount of time to sequence each song. Hope that helps.
