• Believe it or not, this is the fifth major update of ControlBooth in the past 16 years. This new version is more mobile friendly, and brings the site up to more modern standards. There will be more features rolling out soon, but the core of the site is done.

Opening night is tomorrow and I have a final problem I’m hoping you all can help me with. I have a row of 5 Ovation E 910-FCs I’m...

    Chauvet 4D Hazer Problem

    We have a couple of the Chauvet Hurricane Hazers. I'm having a weird issue and looking for ideas. The quick problem is that they lose DMX. They will be on, DMX engaged, all working fine, and then randomly the DMX channel starts flashing on the units and they quit working until a power cycle or...

    Architectural control into DMX

    Hello, Our school auditorium is currently being upgraded to a Crestron architectural control system. Our theatre has two DMX universes, and plenty of spare outputs, but we don’t have any spare DMX inputs into the system. What I’m wondering is: I’m sure people in this community have...

    Control/Dimming Color DMX Level Data for LED Fixtures

    The fixture library on my console doesn't play nicely with my ETC D60s, or with the ColorSource Cyc fixtures I'm demo'ing this week. I specifically have issues with matching gel colors using the console's UI. I typically get around this by punching my desired color into the ETC Photometrics App...

    DMX splitting

    Hey all, hope everyone is feeling good! Have my Element 2 on order and now need to run some infrastructure. Will be putting new led and other fixtures on universe 2, so plan to run a new dmx from the tech booth over to the catwalk above the auditorium. Dmx will go to an optical splitter with...

    Express channels, DMX, and strobes

    Hey all! Couple questions from a relative newbie. ETC Express Board. I can only add channels up to 125, so guess that means I have the Express 125(?). Does that mean I am limited to 125 dmx addresses, less my 48 dimmers? If that’s the case, does that also mean I do not have access to the...

    How to setup Enttech DMX Pro Mk2 on Mac

    Can’t wait (i.e., impatient) for tech support to open tomorrow — hoping you guys might be helpful. Just got an Enttech DMX Pro Mk2 (USB) for my MacBook Air (2011). Problem is it continues to blink white, which apparently means idle and ready, and I am not able to get any Qlab commands to be...

    Control/Dimming House Lights Messed up

    Hey guys, I help run the lights at my school and we have had some recent issues with our house lights. When we try to control the house lights via the light board or via the light control switches throughout the Auditorium they dont respond in anyway. They remain on and refuse to listen to...

    Automated DMX addressing via RDM? (ETC)

    Not sure if this is possible to do, but here's what we're wondering: We're running into a lot of quick plot re-hangs where fixtures are moving around between any of 9 universes frequently. We're trying to see if there's a way to have the Console or Concert automatically reassign fixture DMX...

    Please help: Show Baby issues

    Hi all, Our Show Baby randomly stops transmitting during shows. Unplugging and replugging the DMX cable from the Ion seems to "wake it up" and it's fine for a while, then cuts out again. We have never had issues with it before. Thoughts? Thanks, Josh

    Control/Dimming Looking for an old lightolier Lytemode panel

    Hi everyone, This is a long shot, but do any of you know where I can find a four scene Lytemode DMX wall panel? Not the master station, just the panel itself. I've found one master station on ebay for a very high price, but it won't do any good. Yes, I know the real solution is to upgrade out...

    Intelligent lights randomly shut off.

    Last summer my theatre purchased two Chauvet R3 Spot intel lights. They are connected to Showbaby wireless dmx and are powered by parked dimmers. During the past two productions of our musical, part way through the show they failed to turn on. I have had trouble figuring out if it’s the light...

    Design Issues and Solutions DMX-4 permanent install (or, am I a big dummy?)

    Okay, so I work at an Event center/venue. I've been tasked upgrading out lighting "system". Currently, we have track lighting with an assortment of par38 and par 36 bulbs all over the place. These are all run back to wall outlets that use cheapo inline dimmers from the home despot. For obvious...

    Dimmer Electricity "bleed"

    I'm not sure what else to call it but after literal hours of Google I just have no clue. Any tips would be appreciated! -- I have a 6-channel Leprecon LD 360 DMX dimmer pack with 4 fresnels and 2 practicals (normal lamp bulbs) hooked in. They all run correctly and independently on the channels...

    Control/Dimming NSI DDS 9800 with DMX no load leds stay on

    We bought 4 used DDS 9800 dimmers, and 4 DMX conversion kits. Converted one to DMX, and tested. Several of the no load LEDs were solid on and channels full on. So converted one of our 9800's we know works on MPX, and that one worked great on DMX. So we tried converting a second 9800 from the...
