Adding multi RGB channels

Recommended Posts

I'm adding a smart strip and 27 channel dumb controller, which comes to 177 RGB channels.  Is there a quicker way to assign the channel numbers than going through each RGB channel one at a time?

Select device and choose dmx universe.

 

Change channels to 512.

 

Click ok.

Thank you. Got that to work. Now what if I want to start the first DMX channel.at 200 rather than DMX1.1? I set the address in my controller to start at 200, but going the way you suggested does not allow me to assign the starting channel at 200.

Figured out my problem.  The device seems to malfunction when starting with DMX address 1.1.  Not sure why. My other controller has no issue with this.  Thanks for the tip on assigning the channel numbers. Worked like a champ.

Bob's Vegomatic is also a great tool for adding tons of RGB channels in a hurry.
