Music/Lights aren't in sync at beginning

Recommended Posts

Hello-

 

I'm running the same show/editing as I have for the past several years (adding new songs or features each year of course) but this year I have multiple songs that have been running for the past 2-3yrs where the lights start firing before the music and subsequently the first few seconds of the show aren't synced. The show seems to even out after that. Even more odd is that it only happens on certain songs, maybe 6 or so out of my 15song show. I also built a new 'mini' new years show and have a similar issue on some of the new songs for that.

 

I seem to hear more static/odd noises between songs as well.

 

Any ideas? I updated my LOR software (S4) last year to add another controller (80 channels total, no rgb etc, just straight LED/a few incans). I use the simple show builder and run the show off an SD card. I'm wondering if I should update to the S5...

 

Thanks in advance!

The only time I have ever seem this happening is with variable bit rate MP3 files.  

 

Right-click on the MP3 in Explorer, choose Properties, then the Details tab.  Look under the Audio section for Bit rate.   It should have a value (128kbps or something), not "variable" or "VBR".

Thanks- one song that had a really yucky static issue/lights didn't play at all doesn't show a bit rate at all... actually the two songs with the biggest issue were shortened nicely over the web via some site so maybe that's causing my biggest issues. I guess I could just cut the tunes down more ugly via iTunes... Thanks again!
