    Hey all,
    We have here a 72 channel ETC Insight board that we use for most of our shows. I've noticed the MIDI In, Out and Thru ports a bunch of times, but never really investigated what can be done with them. What kind of things can you do? Advancing cues? Firing a MIDI command with certain cues? Just curious, thanks!

    The console is capable of sending and responding to MSC (MIDI Show Control) commands. You can fire cues and macros on the console from a remote MIDI controller (capable of sending MSC commands). You can also send stop/back commands as well as load cue X and goto cue X commands. The console can send MSC "GO" commands on pressing the GO button. You may be able to send other commands form the console as well, but I am not sure off the top of my head.
