    First pro console choice

    Hi all, I've been learning on a Lightshark, and while it was fun, I've been hitting its limits and feel like it's time to upgrade to a "real" console, in particular as we're finally getting a pile of moving heads at our venue. I was looking at picking up a Ma dot2 XLF until the availability...

    Mixers/Consoles Share Your Script Trays?

    Hey everyone! I'm currently installing a new PA and mixer system in my theatre, and I'd love to see what's out there in the world of script trays that work well with digital desks. I'm putting in a Vi3000, but I'd love to see all sorts. Do you have a favorite setup? Do you prefer a music...

    New lighting board / console / desk suggestions?

    Hi Everyone, I work at a HS and we have a Philips Strand Preset Palette II 32/64 that has had trouble booting reliably for a couple of years now. I spoke with a servicer of Philips and he stated it would be pretty expensive to service and that it would be worth it to look at new boards. I...

The problem is that the list on my PC software...

    ETC Smartfade

    So, the band is looking at options for an upgraded DMX controller.. We played a small theatre that had an ETC Smartfade console and it seemed to work well for them. Does anyone has experience with this console? I need to know things like ease of programming, durability, compatibility with...

    DMX Console that Works in Banks?

    I've spent a few days trying to find this, and am thinking maybe there's a reason why I'm looking for the wrong thing. Our Innnovator 24/48 has 48 faders, each of which (as far as I can tell) is permanently assigned to a channel matching its position. That is, fader #1 sends DMX commands on...

    So I am looking into a nomad setup for a mix use space in University Student Union Building(Ballrooms, Live shows, etc...). None of my students are particularly tech students so I was looking at getting a setup with nomad involving a touch screen and some magic sheets so they could quickly build...
