  1. Luckily I logged into my paypal prior to 9pm in another tab so luckily right at 9pm on the dot I clicked add to cart on the pixel tree 16x50 then clicked checkout, selected paypal and clicked pay now after selecting shipping option. Confirmation email hit at 9:01 timestamp. I knew it was going to sell out fast so I must have refreshed a hundred times starting at 8:55. They had a similar glitch last year so this year I wasnt taking any chances,
  2. Maybe I am just rusty from being off here a few months. But I can not seem to locate anything but pdf's on lor's site regarding learning superstar. Didn't there used to be tutorial videos? Anyone know where I can find them or have a link to them? I am still on S4 but finally upgraded my superstar license and need to start with the basics. Never tried it before. So want to find a few good tutorials to get a crash coarse start. Any help would be appreciated. Originally I used John Storms tutorials to learn SE. His were easy to follow but now I am venturing into superstar to program my pixel
  3. Such as over here in Citrus County. Most Homes in my part of Lecanto (where I live) Have at least 1 acre of land. But they are filling up fast. Housing prices have doubled in the last 2 years around here.
  4. Happy Easter all... It's that time of year where I dust off the laptop and make my return to get started on sequencing this years show. Time to get back to work.
  5. 2020 The year lol... For me the biggest obstacle was health and depression which seemed to take its toll on everyone worldwide this year. Had a few setbacks this year between the job going bye bye in March, trying to get my decal business back up only to have 2 great months, then literally falling apart with the economy, getting rear ended in an accident that jacked up my neck and back but then had an mri done due to the accident which found a huge growth of about 2" in my throat. Possible cancel so yeah 2020 can g2h..... I'm learning I am not in my 20's anymore and need to take better care of
  6. I ended up getting a Kingston React 32gb class 10 pro grade sd card. Seems all my problems are now solved. So very odd though as the other cards seemed to glitch up. One thing I did try differently is I used a different writer usb. Perhaps the one lor sent me was defective. Because now I am having no more problems. So Im not sure if it was the cards or the reader but there is no more lag in my show. I have ordered an additional React sd card as well as a backup. One thing I have learned is to buy directly from Kingston or through links on kingstons site. The ones are amazon are not always what
  7. What Mr P. said is 100% correct. You need a pro level license for a pixie 16... Your basic license only allows 4 ac controllers. Your pixie16 counts as technically 16 since it uses 16 unit id's (one for each port/strip) Upgrade the license then read the manual on the pixie. They recommend you give it a much higher unit id number. Do not start at unit id 1.
  8. By chance have you checked the se to see what unit id you have the cmb set at? Also have you checked the dip switches to ensure it is the correct unit id on the cmb board? I found that to be my issue as I forgot to change the dip switches to the proper unit id after my Halloween show. Just a thought maybe it is set incorrectly for the unit id in your actual channel config. Just curious if you can post a picture of the dip switches on your board.
  9. So I am using S4 software version 4.4.6 but I have noticed a bit of confusing details regarding sd cards. The manual as someone pointed out states up to 8gb sd card towards the end of the manual. However I have been using 16 gb cards for the last 3 years without issue including last year which was my first year using the g3 director. Before that was the mini director... . This year it seems to be hit or miss when I write an sd card and the same card will bring different results each time I write to sd card and the only thing that changed this year was I added a pixel tree. Every time I write
  10. The 8gb are the ones that had serious lag. The 16 and 32 I bought seem to work great. But only on two songs the pixel tree lags. I'm going to try to look into the firmware and see what it shows that might very well be a problem. None of my controllers or anything has ever been updated on firmware. I was under the idea of if it ain't broke don't fix it. I will check back on that shortly.
  11. I have never run it from the actual computer. Other than to just test channels in the hardware utility. I do have the red dongle however. Do I need to change any settings in the computer to run a test of the pixel tree through the red dongle? I would assume I just have to adjust the network speed in the lor utility on the computer itself and run it directly from the sequence editor is that correct?
  12. A BUNCH of details here crammed into one post but all are related to the mp3 director... I have been searching this morning but have not been able to find anything regarding the actual read speeds for sd cards on the G3 mp3 director. Curious what the director is capable of for read speeds. I have 2 kingston select 32gb sd cards that just cant seem to keep up. I also had a Kingston 16gb from last year that I tried and it was worse! Songs are lagging at fast parts on the pixel tree. Now keep in mind I only have a 16x50 pixel tree and it is running on 500k aux A enhanced.. I have been having trou
  13. By chance are you using spt wire? Just curious if a male or female plug was put on incorrectly (backwards). Not sure if that would do it but It's normally the first step in a process of elimination when I have any issues. But personally have not come across that before..
