Superstar Speed


Recommended Posts

Brian...have been working with the Instant Sequencer, for regular lights, not the CCR's, but no matter the speed of the song, it seems to be pretty fast in the movements. What , if anything from a settings perspective, would slow this down? Thanks in advance

Launch the Timing Map dialog (the one with the piano keyboard on the right)
In the top left corner of the Timing Map dialog box there is a "Sensitivity" setting and "Length of Effects" setting. The first thing to try is to crank up the "Length of Effects" setting. I call it the ritalin setting because it helps make the sequences look less hyperactive. If it still seems too hyperactive, you can increase the Sensitivity setting to the point that the triggers are on almost all the time, this will slow down the effects, but if you overdue it, you tend to lose any connection between the song and the effects.

Next year I will try to improve this, but I'm not making any promises. Right now, the triggers happen when the volume of a certain frequency range goes above a threshold. The problem is, that as humans, we like the effects to begin and end at parts of the music that have no correlation with when a particular frequency range is above a certain level.

Thanks Brian...I will give that a shot when I get home tonite!
