    new to this want to know what to get

    If you are talking about wire frame display pieces, then you can use a lightoRama controller, but you can’t use a PC controller because it does not have a standalone mode. You would have to use one of the CBT16 commercial controllers in the metal cases. They allow you to save an animation sequence to use in standalone mode.

    Famous Christmas clips from movies and tv

    For something from youtube, I use a program Mediahuman Youtube audio converter. It's a free program available at download.com. Just search for it. Warning: It is illegal to use copyrighted material without paying........blah blah blah..
  4. I do the same as you for off hours music. I leave my transmitter on all season so my neighborhood has a 24 hour Xmas radio station. I know a couple of my neighbors that listen to it.

    Edit Audio

    After editing the audio, create a new sequence and copy and paste the entire sequence into the new one.

    Questions on 16 channel starter package

    Go to the LOR website displays and watch some of the 16 channel displays. It will give you an idea of what can be done with 16 channels. The first song in this video is from when I was 16 channels back in 2005.

    New setup question

    You also can't have the HU and the sequence editor running at the same time. And make sure that Control Lights is checked in the Play menu.

    Singing Faces How to. What do i need?

    Marty Slack has a great how to on building coro projects at www.christmasutah.com I believe in simplicity in my singers. Just two mouth positions open and closed. The audience all gets it and programming is much simpler. I'm adding light bulb backup singers. Just plain ol' incans. I use a variety of sets. 100's (often split into 50's, 35 sets, and 20 sets (from candy canes). With a little planning, things can come out pretty even with few bulbs left over.

    Advise on next LOR Purchase

    I agree with what's been said. Upgrade to advanced to get all the tools, especially the beat wizard. There is definitely a learning curve to sequencing and it will go faster. Best to get some shared sequences and see how others do it to learn tricks. Funny, 5 hours for 30 seconds sounds about right but then I have about 300 channels. The CTB16PC's are probably best for you at this point. If you are looking at doing coro, Marty Slack has a great how to on his website. www.christmasutah.com
