  1. One house about a mile away from me is all decked out with the lights on. I'll give a pass on the decorating. But can't we wait until around Thanksgiving before lighting things up??? (Not that I don't enjoy seeing the lights. 😁)
  2. I was wondering if anyone out there has the timings for Mr Grinch by Lindsey Sterling from her Warmer in the Winter album and, if so, would you be willing to share it with me? No CCR or smart LED technology in my display. Running a simple, run of the mill 64 channel display this year. Thank you very much for any help you are able to provide! vinyrdguy@gmail.com
  3. Has anyone sequenced any songs yet from The Greatest Showman soundtrack? Several tracks may be long but promising. The Greatest Show A Million Dreams This Is Me Come Alive From Now On
  4. Sequence creativity dumps can affect all of us. What you may try is using the instant sequencer in SuperStar to fill in a portion of a song whose effects presently eludes you. An example is with Little Drummer Boy, roughly about a minute in.
  5. Speaking for myself, I'm usually want the timing of the song for that can make things far easier to sequence. High hat here, vocals there, guitars here. Admittedly, I easily fall into the trap of making the display a jukebox and getting out of that can be trying at times. It would be greatly helpful if more tutorials were available showing how to use the various programs for non-smart pixel shows, focusing more on those with either dumb RGB strips or LEDs for those individuals who like to keep more of a classic and simple feel to a show.
  6. I would like a copy as well. Would be interesting to see if I can add it to my display this year. Thanks! vinyrdguy@gmail.com
  7. Much like most Floridians I am keeping an eye on the track of Irma and preparing as best I can. This storm has a lot of people freaked out though I cannot say if it is from media hype, the size, the shifting path westward or that she has stayed so strong for so long. Stay safe, everyone.
  8. Would you please send me a copy? Thanks! vinyrdguy@gmail.com
  9. Probably sometime in either July or August. Can't tell you any more than that. Just keep your eyes open for the newsletter.

    I use 7 channels on my 3 arches and duplicate those channels using splitters. Others use 8 channels per arch. Do what you like and what looks good to you. Before spending all your money now on controllers, etc., wait for the upcoming spring and summer sales. You have plenty of time to play with your setup in Visualizer and be able to sequence songs. You have plenty of time to purchase hardware. Welcome to the madness that is LOR!
  11. My last show was the 2nd. Once it ended I immediately removed the outdoor rock speakers and the Tune To sign. Just started the main tear down tonight. Will continue over the weekend. Hate this time of year. The real tree is still green and doing very well. Enjoying it while we can. Sarge, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Never easy losing those you love.
  12. Not at all. You can sequence entire songs in your head all year long. Putting them into the software, OTOH, is an entirely different matter. 'Tis a sad day today. Started taking down the lights. "I think I need a hug ..."
  13. Part of Little Drummer Boy by Jennifer Nettles. Pardon the audio but I hope you enjoy. 64 channels, roughly 10K lights.
  14. Have you tried putting in a trouble ticket as of yet? Perhaps DevMike will see this and be able to offer more guidance.
  15. Thank you once again for sending it to me!
  16. Absolutely! vinyrdguy@gmail.com Thank you very much for all the sequencing you have done and so willingly provided!
  17. I would get the software first with a license level above what you think you will need. Start sequencing in there. This will allow you to determine if you want to run RGB strips, smart pixels or LED/incandescent. BobO has a wealth of links on his signature which may be beneficial to you. Sequencing will buy you time for what hardware you will want to purchase as you can wait for the sales. You may find you don't need or want to upgrade the lights to RGB/smart pixels immediately or they can wait a while.
  18. Well, my screen in Visualizer wasn't black. Rather it was all white. Simply closed everything and restarted and everything worked fine afterwards. Go figure.
  19. Congrats! It cannot be understated how much people have helped me as well. Be it sending me sequences or watching tutorials they have done. Simply the best!

    SPT wire

    Usually with wire and plugs it is best to try and catch a presale. Can't hurt checking eBay either. Only way I'd go to a local store would be if I needed it immediately.
