    need help!

    There used to be a DMX to GECE device, but may not be available anymore.
  2. The commercial LOR controllers also have this option (internal memory), but the ..PC versions do not. Also, the CCRs have it too.
  3. Don't splice it in that way, you could damage things. Use a DMX merger and either set it for LTP (last dmx signal takes priority) or HTP (highest dmx value takes priority). You may have to get adapters for the DMX signal, but that's the easy stuff. I've done this before, but used an outboard DMX dongle that can deliver a clean signal, no matter what the computer is doing.
  4. Your EasyDMX controllers only talk DMX, not LOR. No firmware updates to accomplish this. Your E682 can supply regular DMX on any of the four clusters. See J22 in the last two pages of the documentation. You might consider the ELOR, which has a couple of regular DMX outputs and talks LOR on your 485 USB network.
  5. You get what you pay for, as they say. You're paying for quality development that continues to advance in this marketplace.
  6. Are these sub ports or USB ports? Need the correct terminology so we can help you.
  7. More details: http://www.cnet.com/news/microsoft-to-deliver-free-windows-10-upgrades/
  8. Check the doumentation on your DMX lights to see if any channels need to be fully on before it does any actual work. Use the Hardware Utility to bring the appropriate faders up as needed. I'd give you specifics, but you didn't give the make or model numbers. You have 15 channels of finicky operation to play with.
  9. Here's a next step, if you guys are interested; take the light strings you use for your VU meter and put them on a small AC relay so they can be a VU meter or part of the LOR sequences. Use one LOR AC channel to switch between LOR mode and VU meter mode. Gotta watch yourself here because of the 120v AC stuff, but would get you the best of both worlds. I designed this for several Firesticks, but ran outta time before I could complete it. Each stick was 5 channels and used a VU meter circuit that was gonna drive a Solid State relay. Maybe another day. . .
  10. Light-o-Rama products generally respond to pre-programmed sequences and might not be a good fit for what you are trying to do. Consider a Color Organ.
  11. Sounds like you have a problem in the DMX line somewhere; isolate and test. This is a forum for Light-O-Rama products and you might find specific information on the ControlBooth website.
  12. You would have to split your lights into two groups: Ones controlled by the LOR controller Ones that you want to be music responsive and connect them to a Color Organ Can't run the color organ through the LOR system. There's a way to do this through DMX, but cost would be several hundred dollars and daunting for newbies.
