Glad I really was not aiming to get anything...  

I am also with you.  Can't afford to have 250K pixel setup.  A newcomer home nearby last season did the whole house setup in pixels and like you said, a jumbotron.  After the 3rd song with bars going

In order to get my wife to agree to a LOR controlled display I had to agree to no pixels.  She hates them!  No Jumbotron for her.

wow. this stuff sold out FAST... didnt have a chance.....

That's the thing about the Spring Sale, limited quantities and lower prices. You have to be there when it starts or you may not get what you want. The Summer Sale has unlimited quantities but higher prices.

I remember a few years ago when the hottest items would sell out in the first minute of the sale. Talk about having to be fast with your order. We would jump in when the sale started, buy the hot items and check out. Then we would have to come back in and buy the regular items that we wanted.

I can't buy anything.keeps saying there is a problem with PayPal but I'm using a credit card.  Guess they just don't want me to buy!

I had issues at first ass well.  I thought I lost out.  Went back in about 30 minutes later and I got my 8 controllers I guess my LOR addiction has officially started!

Only if I happened to change my e-mail address.  Didn't get in on the Mad Grab, but my default e-mail when I registered is not the same one I order through the LOR Store.  And sometimes instead of going to the E-mail I used for the actual order, it sometimes defaults to my "Original Registration E-Mail" when I started in this hobby.

So if you have a secondary e-mail you might have used, and didn't use the default LOR has on file for your initial registration when you licensed the software suite, you may want to check that e-mail for your confirmation.

Just a suggestion, since I have several e-mail accounts and sometimes when I order from LOR it ends up in my original e-mail I registered the Software Suite with when I got my license for the software instead of the one I wanted it to go to.

For some reason my order confirmation email was marked as spam by gmail. You may want to check your spam folder if you haven't already.

Final sold out times.     Sorry this is late due to weekend trip.    Times for the last few sold outs were not captured but I think it was in the last moments of the sale.

I am guessing now you know, but I think this confirms LOR is headed to the pixel/rgb way of lightning in a big way, this is the first mad grab sale that I recall the ctb16 residential controllers didn't sell out, usually within minutes. They still had them available at sales end.

Seems they are getting less and less popular with all the RGB stuff popping up all over the place now.  I actually believe that eventually we won't see any more incandescent or basic LED light strands in the near future either. 

Last year, several of my neighbors had gone from the standard single color LED strands to the newer cell phone or remote controlled RGB Christmas LED strands that the big box stores were selling.   Of course they still are nowhere near what you can do with the LOR RGB Controllers, but they are darn close though! 

At least the ones my neighbors were using could do just about every effect you can do with an LOR RGB Controller, they could shimmer, twinkle, fade up/down and chase, but that's great for a NON-Music Animation only effect, but they still can't do what we can with the RGB Controllers and RGB Pixels, Bullets or Bulbs we use.

The neighbors were so close I actually thought they may have went the same route many of us have here, moved to a computer-software controlled system.   So the commercial RGB Christmas Light systems have definitely improved a lot from their initial systems.  I had to ask them if they were using anything like I was in my display, nope, purchased at a local retail outlet.  I was very surprised and shocked at how good they've gotten with their RGB Christmas Light lines.

As for the CTB16PC's, LOR may to almost start giving those away for free to off-load them if they ever become so unpopular no one wants them.  Like buy 2 of these RGB items and get a free CTB16PC or something to that affect.  I think the CTB16PC hey days are just about done and the RGB stuff is going to be what more and more people are going to want and start with now.

I never thought I'd go the RGB route either and would be a CTB16PC user forever, until a friend sent me an RGB LOR Controller and RGB Bullet nodes {Thanks JR, you got me hooked into this! LOL} to play around with.   And when I saw how easy it really was, not at all as different or difficult as I had initially thought, I ended up buying some used LOR RGB Controllers {CCB100D 5V} types, which added an additional 4 to my display for a total of 5 last year, and this year I added a G4 Director and 2 Singing LOR Christmas Trees {Ralphie and Zuzu} to my display.  The Singing Trees did pose a challenge at first, but, once again, thanks to JR and his expertise with this stuff, I got them up and running.  Still working on the mouth movements to get them right, but not doing as badly as I thought I would.

So now I only look at adding RGB lights to my Display and got rid of my standard LED strands, gave them away to my church.  But I still use 2 CTB16PC V2 Controllers in my display for my Blow Molds and a couple of older incandescent items I'm still using in my display.   I used to use 5 CTB16PC's, but gave a couple away.  One I gave away to another user here with all my Halloween Decor since I don't do Halloween displays any longer.   Just wasn't worth the time and effort, just don't get enough children here like I did the first few years I lived here, matter of fact the last 2 years I did a Halloween Display, total number of children I had show up was 0.

So due to my age and medical issues, I stopped Halloween and only focus on my Christmas Display.  

But RGB is definitely the wave of today, and the future I foresee for this crazy hobby of ours.

I still like my CTB16PCs and LEDs, I like to have Christmas lights, not be a "jumbo tron" at a sports arena.  I do use some RGB, but not as the main attraction.  I don't even know how many CTB16PCs I have at the moment, picked up a bunch this year at a good discount, I probably have enough for the next couple of years of additions. 

 

I've had people comment that they like I'm still mainly using LEDs.  To each their own, if you like your display that is all that matters.

I bought my first AC box in 2010, and my third and last in 2011. Still use them for my mini trees and sign lights. Started with dumb RGB in 2012. That lasted one season before going to E1.31 smart pixels in 2013. Most of the DC boards are still in use running 25 LOR 10W floodlights

Everything else is pixels.

I am also with you.  Can't afford to have 250K pixel setup.  A newcomer home nearby last season did the whole house setup in pixels and like you said, a jumbotron.  After the 3rd song with bars going back and forth, up and down and pinwheels spinning CW and CCW changing colors I got bored and left.  That is not me either.  Adding another house this year to our neighborhood show with 60K lights.  That will literally keep turning heads!

I'm not a jumbotron either, and don't plan to be.  The only specialized RGB lighting I have are the two LOR Singing Trees I added to my display this year, but I do have RGB lights that will adorn my roof-line, handicap ramp and some in planter areas of the yard mounted to ground stakes.  

And then I still use regular household C7 and Standard Lamp Bulbs in my Blow Molds that are run off the 2 CTB16PC controllers.   I've tried LED's in the Blow Molds, but to me, they just don't cut it with them, the incans work and look far better in my opinion.  And I do have a couple of other things that are also old style incans or LED bulbs that also run off the 2 CTB16PC Controllers.

Otherwise I'd find my display being nothing but all RGB quite boring too.   Need some different items in there to break up the monotony.   I try to use the RGB lights as they eye catcher{mainly the LOR Singing Trees starting this year}, but still incorporate older things into my display as well.

We all love traditional lights. My wife was the same way as well as I when I first signed up here but as I exposed her to the RGB works she has become a fan.

The hardest prop to retire was my 15,500 light mega tree but this last Christmas she saw what I could do with the 12’ 360 RGB mega tree and Wu 24’ mt will become a 24’ 360 RGB tree this season.

100% RGB from my Covid show forward. I sent a great friend about 12000 mini led lights just to ensure I do not have any in reserve.

JR, my wife felt just like the other guys wife, and I did exactly what you did, and is exactly how I got my wife to agree to RGB Lighting.  

When she saw what could be done with them, then she started asking me: Where can we get those?   

And the rest is history.🤣

@JR: BTW: I've almost got "Oh What A Glorious Night by Sidewalk Prophets" sequenced with the new LOR Singing Trees I bought.   Got a couple more areas to work on, but it's close to being done.   When I get it done, will see if I can shoot a video and send it to you, and you can tell me how well{or bad} I did with the trees mouth movements.

You don't have  to have a jumbo tron to got to smart pixels. I started with traditional lights and now run 3 16 AC controllers and two Pixies IIs. I use one for arches and one to line the top of my garage and around the front door. I think once your wife sees them used as accents with traditional lights,  she will like them. 

Good luck with your display. This IS an addicting hobby.

That's an awfully difficult song for a singing face novice to tackle especially on the RGB side. I am not very good at being critical to others  work unless it is just horrific but sure send it my way and I will have a gander. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that counts is that you feel good about it. Anyone else thinking it is good is just a bonus, imo.
