I am trying to sharpen my understanding of lighting systems. I was pretty good with are old Kliegl Performer III series with dimmer per circuit. Then I went to college and had 88 8.8Kw Varie-Lite dimmers with a patch panel that reminded me of an old Graham Bell patch panel. But we did have an ETC Expression board, and the good thing is once you learn one ETC board all other ETC consoles are pretty self-evident. My Questions: 1.)Soft patch can only exist in a dimmer per circuit environment. Correct? 2.)In a dimmer per circuit environment you can not overload a dimmer unless you have a 5Kw Fresnel plugged into a 2.4Kw dimmer, or you have two-fered two lights that exceed the wattage on the lamp? Because every light uses its own specific dimmer. Correct?
