    Control/Dimming Touring bands + light shows.

    What do most bands do about lighting shows when touring without their own fixtures? Does the venue have a controller with audio coming in from the FOH making the lights basically just random, or does a lighting tech make shows specifically for that venues setup? Thanks! Zakk

    20amp to 15amp adapter safety

    Well the problem is that the 20amp plug will not fit into a 15amp outlet. So its not just a power issue it is a compatibility issue

    20amp to 15amp adapter safety

    My band just recently bought a dimmer pack(Cyber Elationpak) that has a 20amp plug. I am guessing most venues that we will be traveling to will have 15amp circuits and plugs. Furman has an adapter that has a breaker built-in, so if you draw more than 15amps it will trip its own circuit instead...

    Control/Dimming Syncing lights with MIDI/DMX to a click track

    Re: Non-intelligent lights and MIDI! It is one plug per light, but I figure I could just plug a group of 2 in two different channels, and then the next two channels just have 1 in each. I'm not sure about the draw. Does that depend on the bulb?

    Control/Dimming Syncing lights with MIDI/DMX to a click track

    Alright thanks you! So if I do this: Computer(midi)->DMX controller->Dimmer pack(with correct wattage capabilities) and plug the the lights into that pack, I can select MIDI on the controller and they will come on when a signal is sent out from the computer? What will all the faders on the...

    Control/Dimming Syncing lights with MIDI/DMX to a click track

    Hello! I am the drummer in a band and we play to a click track. We decided we want to sync up a light show to our songs. What we want to do is have two "light towers" that we are going to build and have a column of 3 flood lights in each. We use Logic Pro 9 to run our clicks and backtracking...
