  1. Hi all- I've been running an LOR show (no dmx/pixels etc) for about 7 years now, my show is 96 channels. I run the show off of a card via showtime central. (my LOR software is 3.12.0 Standard) This year I decided for the first time to do a 'baby' halloween show- only 16 channels. We've had a fog machine for several years, a fancy pants/theatrical quality one that my husband found for a steal. This machine will smoke up 1/2 a block with fog! My husband wants to integrate it into the show and that would be great- seeing fog roll through our cemetery during Thriller for example. He emailed lightorama and they said he needed to buy the iDMXS-1000 to integrate the machine into our standard controllers but I'm still not sure how it will really work. I'm the one who has built the shows and programmed controllers etc in the past and he helps me hook everything up. I've read the user manual and it just isn't that simple and I'm unsure if I can still use my showtime central with this idmx controller etc. They also say helpful things like 'only LOR 2 software can handle software with 256 channels' but I can't tell if I have LOR 2 software. Can this work in the way I want it to with both a standard 16 channel controller and the idmxs daisy chained together and run through showtime central?
  2. 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!
  3. 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!

  6. I DID! It was a 20min drive back over there (and then they weren't home!) but I took pics of the cord labels this time! i just don't think they'll work with a show though as they are programmed and the other lights like this don't return to your favorite "style" each time they are turned back on- which would be dozens of time during the show. Might get one or two anyway for next year as they are pretty awesome. Thanks guys!
  7. I saw these online while searching, but this was not them. These are clear tubes with lights in them. What I saw were spines that were opaque and the lights (pretty sure just one per spine at the end) stuck out from them.
  8. Here's the video on youtube. They were very slender spines that more/less came to a point and were about the diameter of a pencil. The shape is right for those 'fish attractors' but the 'spines' look a lot fatter than these.
  9. So this star thing sparkled like a strobe/very random and bright (similar to some of the net light that blinks/sparkles randomly) in cool white. I got out and looked at it and the cord had labels and such so I don't think the lights were necessarily homemade (I thought at first they put strobes on each of these spines). Now I'm thinking maybe it was an LED string that they formed into this shape but they were awesome looking and I've never seen anything like it. I've got a short video as well... if anyone wants to see that.
