Well I did it, i bought 16 channel controller and all the software. In the past I have used a pre-programmed 4 channel from lowes I believe, and I just had to take next step. Now I am completlly overwhelmed. Sequenceing is a hard thing to do. I have been able to down load some free sequences that some of you are nice enough to put out there. That helped me understand the process some what, any advice for the experience out there would be gratefull. I have a feeling this year will be a yard full of blinking lights to music with no real direction, but I hope to make it look as good as possible and not bring any shame to the wonderful world of sequencing. Again anyadvice or direction would be helpfull. Big questions are ... 1. do you just have to listen to song and keep stoping to build sequence? 2. what is best software to make song a constant beat? 3. Is there any easy way in the Loght-o-rama software to get started with new song? 4. and in general any tips are tricks? I realize im a little late in ball game to do a whole lot with full time job and all but im gonna try. Thank you in advance John Yelm WA.
