I am new here and stumbled across this place after a long google, I have floated around other technical forums but I think this one would suit my needs better!
I am a University student not far off graduating. I will be doing an event shortly using a Strand 520i. While I am familiar with using this desk for conventionals, I am not familiar using it with moving lights. As such our desk does not have up to date fixture libraries.
I have heard and read it is possible to create DMX fixture libraries using basic notepad files? How do I go about this? Is there a step by step guide? What is the upload process onto the desk? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I just wondered if anybody new of a cost effective DMX tester that an a programmer can chuck in his tool box. I don't mind home made DIY jobs, I just want something simple and effective.
Thanks very much everyone,
