I am fairly new to the dmx world and I really want to conquer it! I want to start small to get the whole idea and then work my way up. I have an enttec usb pro, ministageconsole and Qlab(set it up but haven't gotten that far yet). For lights, I have an AF1000 strobe light I would like to stat with. Here is the manual with all addresses and so on... http://www.premier-lighting.com/down...-endAF1000.pdf
I hooked up all the necessary dmx cords and terminator. Easy since all I needed was a 5 to 3 pin converter, a 3 pin dmx cord, and a terminator. I then set my dip switches. All the standalone switches are down (off) and the DMX switches the first one is up. That means I set the address to 1 right?
So I go into ministageconsole and try to configure my serial ports which my only options are bluetooth pda sync or bluetooth modem. I've concluded that means it recognizes it as a serial port. So I picked bluetooth pda sync because it was open. I then click test dmx interface, not like I know what that even does. It doesn't do anything or maybe it should? I then plug the strobe in. It only lets out a small little flash that you can look at and wont be blinded. So i try messing with every fader and every button and every option only to have it do nothing.
I appreciate any and all help!
