Hey everyone, I need some help. The county has finally heard my pleas for an actual light board, and have decided to let us ditch the computer based Horizon (http://www.horizoncontrol.com/web/index.htm), and purchase an actual Light Board. Our current Horizon set up includes an eMachine with the physical software, and a 24 channel Submaster Wing. We have less than 200 physical channels (120 channels on the stage, plus channels for the house). The only problem is that our county is woefully ignorant to our needs, and have looked for the lowest price solution (Heck, Horizon was FREE). They have sent us this Lightronics Inc. Board: http://www.fullcompass.com/product/352533.html However, this is what controls our blackbox, and has no where near the channels we need in the full auditorium. Although I have done some lighting, I am horribly ignorant to what type of board we should be getting. I do know that it needs to be of a decent price, contain around 150 Channels, and be suitable for a permanent settup, that can handle years of abuse at the hands of students. I tried using the search, but couldn't find a thread that could help me exactly. Thanks for all your help.
