I have been intrigued by a recent thread about using MTC to control lighting consoles.
Our new console, a Theatrelight Cuemaster II doesn't have MIDI I/O however is does have a remote cue input jack on the back. It is a stereo TRS jack.
The manual says that it can be triggered by manual push button or by electronic control from a SMPTE time decoder, Midi decoder or computer.
The jack is in the following configuration:
TIP - Forward connection
RING - Reverse connection
SLEEVE - Common connection (chassis earth)
The Forward and Reverse commands are given to the Cuemaster as follows:
Forward Cue - Connect tip to sleeve for a period of not less than 50 milliseconds and no greater than 1 second.
Reverse Cue - Connect ring to sleeve for a period of not less than 50 milliseconds and no greater than 1 second.
Does anyone know of any way I could make or buy something that would enable me to convert MIDI signals from my computer to a signal that my console would understand?
Thanks for your help.
