    What are the differences between a Celebrity and a Celebrity plus Lighting console from Electro-Controls? My school has the Celebrity and i want them to get a new board but i was just curious as to the differences.

    im not sure that electro controls is still in buisness. My school had electro controls elipsoidals and a super old school centry strand board. Im assuming you could search for them to get product specs.

    Electro Controls is not still in business. They were taken over by Strand and put out of business i believe. I was just curious the differences between the Celebrity (which my school has) and the Celebrity Plus.

    My high school has Electro Controls Quad dimmers and a Celebrity board. I think the only difference with the Celeb and the Celeb Plus is an added "effects" module. Hopefully we'll be getting a new board soon, as this one is on it's last leg.

    I pulled out one of my ancient EC catalogs (who are you calling a hoarder??) and there they were! See? -- it does pay to keep old stuff around!

    The Celebrity Plus was pretty much a conventional lighting board with all the bells and whistles you still see nowadays, but only for controlling dimmers. It had a level setting & cue recording keypad, level and fader wheels, color video display and a softpatch module. There was also an optional cassette tape drive for show backup. You could order the board with up to 60 channels of 2-scene preset.

    The Celebrity had the 2-scene preset, the softpatch module, and optional tape drive, but also came with 24 or 48 programmable scene masters.

    Both of these boards spoke EC-Mux protocol, which like DMX supported 512 dimmer levels but inexplicably ran it on only one data wire plus common -- a source of many headaches over the years. Their average age is now 25, so replacement is definitely overdue if you still have one!
