    Review for Source 4wrds?

    Hello Everyone, My venue is looking to purchase 30 new Source 4s. In a surprise turn our Board asked about the LED options, so here I am researching the ETC Source 4wrds. I know they are still relatively new, but I can't seem to find a lot of reviews about them. Does anyone have hands on...

    Control/Dimming LED lights flicker randomly when used in an effect: ETC CS Console

    The show i am providing lighting for calls for 6 LB Par Hex fixtures from Blizzard Lighting for color above the stage. I am controlling them all separately on an ETC Colorsource console. When I run the rainbow effect with any speed and a fan of about 30, some of the lights will flicker off...

    ETC Source 4wrd & DMX Loss

    I recently installed some Source 4wrd retrofits. I am really happy with these fixtures and they perform as advertised. Great job ETC! However, one thing that I cringe to think about... When the S4wrd loses DMX, the light goes out. And there's no way to change DMX loss behavior. Just hope...

    How should i go about using a new control console?

    Hello everyone, This summer, I am working on "The Wizard Of Oz" as Lighting Operator. I was wandering if you all could give me some advice on using a new console, as the venue we are using this year is different than what we have used before. If it helps any, I am a ETC Eos programmer. The...

    How to Set an ETC Unison/Paradigm

    Hey all, I've got yet another school system to cope with. This one has an ETC Element controlling its stage lights, and also a Unison (or is it Paradigm?) system to control its house lights. The latter are set with a small touch-screen, that looks like the picture below. The "House @ 50%" and...

    Basic ETC Ion Question About Cues

    Amazingly, I have not been able to find the answer to this question in the oh-so-clear, 440-page pamphlet that comes with the ETC Ion. I have learned how to program basic cues and play them from a cue list. When I play a cue, channels set to specific intensities fade to those intensities...

    Control/Dimming Stupid Ion Questions 2

    In my previous post, Stupid Ion Questions 1, I don't think I ever quite got around to asking this, but having now spent some time programming there (finally, shut up) and on our Express 24/48, I now have one very specific, laser-focused question: When I build a look out of submasters and...

    Control/Dimming Solais LR38 LED Retrofit with ETC Sensor CEM Classic

    Has anyone out there run into the Solais LR38 dimmable LED lamp? A high school I work at just replaced all of the incandescent lamps in the house light fixtures with these LED lamps. The fixtures are fed by ETC D20 Sensor dimmers controlled by a CEM Classic (five fixtures per dimmer). No...

    Control/Dimming ETC Express LPC

    Hello all, Working on a quote for a few tweaks at a museum. I'm more of an audio guy so I 'll probably end up subbing out the LX stuff, but I'm trying to figure what kind of tools we'll need before I quote the job. It's a pretty simple setup: all conventional fixtures, probably ~50 dimmer...

    Hello I am originally from Oregon but due to lack of work I moved to Las Vegas. I didn't find a criteria that really matched my skills. My profile currently says rep but there really isn't any rep in Vegas and it looks like my career is moving toward music and conventions however rep is my...

    Replacing the floppy drive in an ETC Express

    We had an Express that was having some trouble with its disk drive. My boss purchased this floppy-drive emulator: This afternoon he installed it. So far, we've managed to "format" and "write all to disk," but are unable to "read...

    ETC Express & Moving Lights

    So I'm renting 2 Martin Mac 700 Profiles for an upcoming show and I was figuring on renting an Element as my control console. However, most of what I'm doing will be fairly simple and I'm wondering if just working with the Express 48/96 we already have would be sufficient. Anybody have any...

    Can a deep-clear on a SmartFade break anything?

    I'm back in an old venue in March, and I'm told that on their last show, their SF2496 -- which never really gave us any problems on any show I did there -- blew it's mind out in a car during intermission at one show, pushing them 15 minutes late (and possibly requiring them to run the rest of...
