Seeking Advice and 16 channel Sequences


Recommended Posts

Newbee very late to the party !  

 

I just purchased a 16 channel LOR and want to put it to use this year.  I would appreciate advice from some of the seasoned users for their suggestions on some simple displays or display ideas that give the best bang for the buck. I am sure some of you have tried ideas that worked better than others.   I realize that with very little time my display will have to be simple and I am not going "big" this year.  I am thinking of net lights on bushes and wrapping a tree and some porch columns.  For the open spaces are displays such as mega trees and leaping arches good to start with ?   Is a single color best to get more animation or are several colors better in a smaller display ?  I recognize personal preference and exterior house features will greatly affect the outcome.   

 

Also, I am hopeful for the kindness of others to share some of their craftsmanship of 16 channel sequences. GiGa Wilson shared some of his files - THANK YOU.  I would like to collect some sequences set to TSO or Mannheim Steamroller tunes. But at this late date any sequences would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you in advance for your help !

16 channels is going to be tough. I would stay away from arches, mega trees etc. They eat up channels. If using led you have some more options. I have 80 channels just for arches. One color would be my recommendation. Pay more attention to the sequencing than how many lights you have. I would use 8 channels for the house and maybe 8 mini trees or something in yard. There's a recent post on here labeled " my sequences for download". Check that out. Good luck!

Thanks for the advice and the lead to the recent post.  I have found it and will grab a few of these to see what I can do with them.  I have read a bit about ensuring the music is an exact match to the sequencing.  I have also read that Amazon seems to be the best place for music.  Any advice on findin ght correct music to go with these sequences ?

I posted the Griswolds sequence in there. Its edited audio so if its not there with it, PM me and I'll send it to you. It matches that very simple sequence precisely.

I don't believe that stealing music is in the spirit of the season; never mind illegal, contemptible, and extremely bad advice to give someone just getting started in this hobby. A free service to help you steal music ... can't help but wonder what goodies get downloaded to your PC at the same time?

When did 99 cents become so expensive that someone who spends hundreds of dollars on controllers can't afford to get music the right way?
