  1. A big "ND" would fit on there real nice.
  2. Central Iowa, originally from northwestern Illinois. We've had a number of snow storms already this year, but it didn't stick around long. It was near 50° this past weekend.
  3. Is there a way to import multiple channel configurations into a sequence? Better yet, can a track from one sequence be copied to a different sequence? Happy Thanksgiving!
  4. This is exactly what I did. Works perfect.
  5. You'll probably have to open the sequence in the Sequence Editor and select "Media File" under the Edit pulldown menu. Then find your audio file and select it.
  6. Good info k6ccc. If it does in fact work the way you are saying, that works for me. Overall I like the looks of S5 and will most likely upgrade after this season. I just hope that in the future LOR doesn't leave the standard controller people in the dust. I realize pixels are all the rage now, I bought my first pixel controller this year myself. However, I can't see myself ever not being mostly incan. I just like the look of them better for Christmas lighting.
  7. "The controller does not care - it FULLY operates as 24 independent channels in all cases." This is exactly what I needed to know. Thank you! Any idea what was meant by "no more RGB splitting" in S5?
  8. If you are using a controller designed for DC outputs I wouldn't imagine you having any problems. I'm referring to a controller that is designed for RGB devices, but could also be set up as single channels in S4 sequence editor. An 8 channel RGB controller can then be used as 24 independent DC channels.
  9. I was looking through the "What's new in S5" literature and in the section where they were talking about old or unused features available in S4 being removed in S5. The one that caught my attention was "no more RGB splitting". I bought 3 CMB24 boards last year with the intention of doing exactly that; running them as 24 separate channels each. Does this mean if I switch to S5 the new prop I'm building won't work?
  10. Not sure if you have solved this yet, but the same thing happened to me on a controller I built two years ago. I had the two voltage regulators swapped. One is 5V and the other is 10V if I'm not mistaken. That little mix up most definitely fried U1. LOR was kind enough to send me two 485 driver chips in short order. Free of charge as well, even though I totally admitted it was my mistake. Great service.
  11. I started working on something like this last year, but ran out of time for getting it going this past Christmas. It's going to be a roughly 20"x72" box with five 14-segment displays in it. I originally planned to use it as a "TUNE TO" sign, but I'm thinking I will scroll text across it as well. As others have suggested, my thought was a separate sequence everyday for a countdown. I hope to get it finished by summer, just need to find the time.
  12. What material is the box for your sign made from?
  13. Great news! You sound really pumped about. A perfect venue for an animated light display. That flat roof......I can see cool things happening up there. There's just something appealing about putting stuff where it really shouldn't be. Put as much up there as you can! Good luck and thanks in advance for the pics and video when it's up and running.
