20.1 Scheduled Events
MagicQ now timed events for trigger Cues at specific times of the day or days of the week. Any Cue
Cue Stack can be set to trigger based on a scheduled event rather than following on from the previous Cue.
This enables time of day and date based events to be run automatically.
Scheduled events are supported on MagicQ consoles and on MagicQ PC when connected to a MagicQ
To use this feature, set the Halt field in the Cue Stack Window to “Sched”. Then enter the time in the
Wait field. You can enter a full time:
19/30/5 for 19 hours 30 minutes and 5 seconds
*/10/0 to have the event occur every hour at 10 minutes past the hour
*/*/0 for every minute
It is also possible to set dates. Dates are entered into the macro
field starting with Z and ending with Z.
For example to have an event on the 24 December 2005 enter:
You can also specify particular days of the week using the characters A to G where A is Monday, B is
Tuesday, C is Wednesday etc
So for an event every Monday and Tuesday enter:
For an event on the first day of every month enter
