    Off Line Editors
    Although Off Line Editors (OLEs) were originally designed to make changes to a show while away from the theatre, they now also function as educational tools, allowing users to become familiar with a console without requiring access to one.

    ETC
    ETC EOS/ION/Element OLE/Network Client
    The EOS OLE allows users to not only manipulate shows & learn the console, when connected to the same network as a console it allows users to remotely control the EOS/ION.
    Download & Download For Mac OSX (As this is a current product, always check for the latest software revision.)

    ETC Congo/Congo Jr OLE/Network Client
    Does exactly the same thing as the EOS OLE, except it controls the Congo family of consoles.

    Strand
    Offline editor for Strand Palette family
    Works as backup console. Also can be plugged into console DMX output in case console fails.

    Strand 300/500 OLE
    Works as an offline editor, has major problems importing shows from a floppy disk drive (Needs Collaborative Article to explain) original OLE can be networked, but as this is an emulated version it would be incredibly difficult to do. Other useful software includes Strand Show Port that exports *.SSF (Strand Show Files) into various formats.
    Download (For Windows OS (95-7)



    All OLEs came from the manufacturer's site with the exception of the Strand 300/500 OLE, made by Strand but made compatible with Windows operating systems by Mac Calder using "Free DOS".
