  1. Thanks mega. I'm trying to find where someone either just synchronizes maybe some mega or spiral trees, mini trees, fire sticks and makes it really cool with only a couple select elements being synchronized with music and the rest static. Or a display without music and just animated lights. I just don't want to use the same songs and show I did last year. I have at my disposal, 2 spiral trees, 5 mini trees and 8 light balls (approx. The size of a beach ball). I can add more mini trees or a couple fire sticks. I just don't want to have to synchronize the house lights too bec
  2. My wife wanted me to break from the show this year due to the time involved, but since has given me the green light to do it, but wanted me to change it up. I clearly don't have time for that, but was thinking about doing a simple, scaled down version where I really use mostly static lights and then have a couple synchronized individual elements that pop out. Anyone have any examples they could point me to of some small & classy, but really effective/creative shows? Pictures or videos would be great. Also, I don't use pixels. I'm purely led lights. Thanks for the help!
  3. As much as I hate to, I believe I'm going to have to miss this. I have to be back in Nashville by 5:30 and just can't take the chance with the gas problems. I asked some friends around chattanooga area and they said they're seeing the same thing. Thank you for having this again and am sick I have to miss.
  4. Are the gas problems as bad in Chattanooga as Nashville? There's an hour or more wait at the very few gas stations that still have some premium gas left. I'm sure they'll be out within another couple hours as well.
  5. After having conflicts the last 2 gatherings, I am finally going to be able to make it on Saturday. I have not been able to get up for working on my show this year and I'm sure this is just what I need to get the juices flowing. I look forward to meeting you all and learning lots - which I need a lot of "learning." Dennis, I'll check the old email you sent me to see what you were looking to sell and check with you to see what's still available if you're still thinking you might come. Rory
  6. I was really hoping the date of the spring mini was going to work for me because I missed the fall mini last year, but yet again I have a conflict. I will just have a pity party here and keep my fingers crossed a fall mini happens and that it does work for me this time. I'm extremely jealous of those of you attending! Rory (in Franklin)
  7. If you're still feeling generous. Rorymallard@comcast.net Thank you very much and happy Thanksgiving!
  8. I can't help myself....james, I would appreciate a copy of either or both if you're feeling generous, please. Thank you so much! Rorymallard@comcast.net
  9. Are any of the 16 channel still available? How old are they and are there any issues? Rorymallard@comcast.net Thanks!
  10. I am trying to light up for my first year and obviously, by all accounts, I am desperately out of time. I know this year will not be my best show and I should just put together the best show I can and focus on next year, but I can't help but think I either need to add more channels to add a few more elements or I need to figure out how to make the most of what I have already and make it look bigger or cleaner. I guess I'm struggling with what are the best elements to use and where to use the 32 channels I have now (Technically 48, but I have a 16 channel spiral tree that I have already built
  11. Earl, I have been looking at this post for a year and just felt guilty asking for sequences, but if you're still giving them out, I sure would love some. Your trees are what got me into trying to do LOR for the 1st time this year. I'm overwhelmed but trying and this would be a great help. I can give you songs or you may choose what you think is most popular. Thank you so much in advance for your generosity for everyone! Rorymallard@comcast.net
  12. Thank you for this. It did help me get closer to something I think looks okay. Hopefully I can figure out how to fine tune it and continue to improve the look of the spirals.
  13. Does anyone have a 16 channel, single color, spiral tree sequence they would be willing to share with me? Specifically the 1st song I'm (still) working on is Carol of the Bells by Monique Danielle, but I would obviously be very grateful for any sequences someone would be willing to share. I just need to see some to get an idea. I have seen some offered on the forums, but I've had a hard time finding a single color 16 channel - I'm not feeling good enough yet to splice together 16 or more channels of multiple colors into 1. This is my first year doing (trying to do) a sequenced light show
  14. Thank you all for the messages and advice! I am going to make every effort to be there and will let Doug know in advance if I can pull it off. I appreciate the invitation and look forward to it.
  15. I have just started purchasing my LOR set up this year, so I'm as green as they come. I would love to come to this, but I have a conflicting schedule. I know many of you have at least some, and likely a lot, of experience already. I would hate to take anything away from this by needing more remedial help, so please let me know if this would be better for me to wait until next year to attend so I have a better foundation. Otherwise. I am going to try to move some things to make this work and will let you know as soon as I am able. Rory
  16. Thanks for the suggestion! Getting some of those would save me a lot of time and fruitless efforts trying to find Tesla's lost notes for wireless power.
  17. Thanks to everyone for the advice! I got 48 channels to start now and a few other items in the mad grab. Time to hunt down random deals on LED string lights, then time to make the doughnuts.....
  18. Thanks, Mike! I saw that and hate I missed it, but my daughter had a health issue we were having to devote everything to at that time. I really hope I can make the fall meeting. That would be an enormous help I'm sure!
  19. After speaking with Dan and doing some more research, I definitely plan to buy new now. If I ever find a good deal, I would buy used, but those deals seem few and far between. I appreciate all the advice on that front. My time constraints are heavy, but sleep less than I should and tend to get things done once the family is in bed. I think I've decided on 48 channels to start and that includes one controller dedicated to a spiral tree (or 2 by running extension cords between the 2). Other than that,I don't plan to have too many props my first year. I like more traditional music myself, but
  20. Thank you for the info! I thought i knew that about matching controllers, but suddenly find myself questioning it. I did know different controllers for 12v and 120v and that actually was why I thought people changing to pixels a have some equipment they may not need. Does that make sense or am I off there? I had read that thread on used equip prices and appreciated it very much. That thread actually was the catalyst for my post. I've seen used equip for sale and haven't purchased anything due to the high prices versus new or if the price was right, my timing wasn't and someone else picked it
  21. I have been researching doing this on and off for several years and have been delayed each time by personal events. I think the time is finally right for me to be able to get into this game. I feel like I know absolutely nothing about it even though I have read multitudes. I am hoping it will all come together once I actually have my hands on it. I plan to get a showtime starter kit at the mad grab sale and possibly a few other items. I thought I would check to see if anyone is upgrading this year to pixels or just has surplus items they are planning to unload this year that I might want to
