Question Before Purchase

Recommended Posts

I have read the FAQs, looked at the forum but not sure if my question has been answered..and yes, I can be a bit slow to the party. So you can't set up your lights and set it to music from a local FM station like my local rock station CD102? That is all I want to do....hook my lights and have them dance to music on a radio station.

Thanks! and Merry Christmas!

The LOR software can not react to music in real time. All effects have to be programmed in, one way or the other.

If it was ONLY that easy it would save quite a few people some time having to sequence songs.  It's definitely not plug and play.

You want a hacked Mr Christmas. With that you can plug your MP3 player into it and watch the lights dance. It works... ok

You could always just get some lights and good speaker and cut the plug ends off and connect to speakers. WHile in the USMC we did this all the time while in the field for holidays.

Improvise, adapt and overcome.

You could also just record your favorite songs and learn how to sequence or look for shared sequences and purchase a starter set with mp3 director

please explain the hacking to me. I gave my old MC to one of my sons. He doesn't like the pre-installed music, so he just stays static. Totally unacceptable. If I could help him hack it, maybe the next season he'd follow into the LOR life...

A video is worth 10,000 words

Now that's what I call a HACK job!  Never actually got to see a result on the lights or maybe I missed it.  Brutal video quality.

You gotta start somewhere. Though this year I am giving him 3 Gen 1's with a list of what else he will need. He will also be using the minion singing props I mad since I will be using my other 12 singers I just can't fit the minions in with my show this Halloween

You know I will. I'm going for a theatrical display this year for Halloween and Christmas. I had the faces but never thought of it unt earlier this year. I cut down a tree and some very nice shrubbery in front of my house to better suit my needs.
