I've got a musical coming up at the end of March where we're looking to use 8 Martin Mac's. We're not overly familiar with moving lights, but have been slowly getting into them more and more over the past half dozen or so shows. So far we've only used an Express 48/96 for our shows (we own a 24/48 but with the movers we've started renting the bigger brother for "convenience"). I've seen what a pain it is to program a musical with movers on an Express, and recommended that this time around we bump up to a more capable board. I was hoping for an Eos (because I think I'd eventually like to get one, so it would be nice to give it a test drive, though a purchase isn't happening any time soon), but the local rental house we use doesn't own one yet. He recommended to us a Leprecon LP-X24. I don't really know anything about these boards, though I seem to keep reading on here that they're problematic (correct me if I'm wrong, I'm going by memory). I was wondering, is this a good subsitute? Should I stick to the Express, or should I try to find some other (unknown) alternative? How does this LP-X24 compare to the Express as that's the only board we've used and we'll only have a few days to get ourselves up to par on the rental board before we start programming? We're using 48 dimmers of conventionals and the 8 Macs, and maybe a DMX-controllable fog machine or two. Thanks in advance for the input!
