    Problem with show builder or sequences

    Open one of your sequences. Right click on the channel buttons. You will see a window with options. Check each channel to see that it is set to your controller. That would be a good start.

    Problem with show builder or sequences

    It is more then likely a problem with the sequences. Not the show builder. You could check your sequences right in the sequence editor. Load one at a time make sure you check control lights and play entire sequence. If some still do not flash your lights you need to check that sequence. We would need more information on the sequences in order to try and see what may be wrong. Hope this helps you out.

    Some audio files are garbled and unusable

    Phil, It's never too late.

    Some audio files are garbled and unusable

    Shawn, Sounds like some of the MP3 files may be recorded at a very high volume level. They sound good in the se but not good when you transmit them to the radio. A lot of folks on here use a free program called MP3 Gain. It is a great volume leveling proggy. You can use it in batch mode also. That is my first guess at your problem. The next thing would be to re rip the songs if you ripped them. If you purchased them see if you can down load them again. Hope this helps you out. Also make sure the volume level on your laptop is not set too high. That would over drive your transmitter.

    Controllers aren't connecting with each other

    This may sound stupid but did you set the unit id's on the controller boxes that are not working?
  9. Assuming that all of the fades are of different durations ,I would have to say that you would need to do them one at a time. I am sure that if I am incorrect someone will be kind enough to jump in.
  10. I agree with George. Gremlins I suspect. I can not stress this point enough. BACK UP YOUR FILES. Just think after all of the hours you spent creating your sequences why would you not protect them??? External hard drive Flash drive In the cloud. I feel for you.

    OK folks. Lets get back to the basics here. If your first arch is lets say 3 5 7 9 channels that would equate to 3 5 7 9 power chords. And 3 5 7 9 channels on your controller. Notice all of my if it is what you are doing are in odd numbers. Best effect in m h o. I hate even numbers on arches. If you are saving channels and you want to mirror your arches you still will need to jump from arch one to arch two with the same amount of channels (chords ) as the first arch to make it chase. If you desire full control of arch two you will need that many more channels from a controller. George hit on this. He is correct, now is the time to get experienced controllers. Hope this helps out. Just my 2 cents worth. Hope it helps you out.

    Can you add sequences to simple show after finished??

    You need to open the show that you created in the Show Editor first. Then you will be able to make changes and save the new show.
