I have a few years experience with ETC Express series boards and I'm just now sitting in front of my first ETC Ion. We're planning on using the console with a number of Martin MAC 250's for our first show. I've been playing around a bit and have figured out a lot of the basics, such as setting up a patch using a MAC 250 profile. One thing I haven't figured out is how I can program a cue or macro to turn the lamps in the MAC's on/off. I can manually strike the lamp by entering the channel number, hitting the lamp control softkey, then clicking on the lamp on/off buttons that show up on the display. But the only way I seem to be able to turn the lamps on/off is by doing it interactively. With the Express boards I would set up a cue or macro to turn fixtures on/off so the operator doesn't have to worry about doing it manually. But with the Ion I can't even create a macro that will do it. I've even recorded a macro that goes through the steps of turning the MAC lamp on but when I run that macro the fixture doesn't respond. So how do I make the Ion turn moving lights on/off via a macro or cue?
