I promise this isn't going to be one of those "what console should I buy?" or "help! my board is freaking out!" threads. One of the groups I work with just purchased a Strand 500ML console. Until now, most of my experience has been in the ETC world. My question to those of you who own or use 500LMs (or other Strand consoles for that matter) is, what should I know going in? I won't have access to it for a while but I downloaded the manual and I'm working through it. I've also been watching YouTube videos but I'd like some real world advice. Are there any tricks you've picked up? What should I watch out for? What do you wish you knew when you started? Have you come up with any best practices? It seems like a pretty straight forward console but I'd like to ramp my knowledge up as quickly as possible. The rig is also being purchased so I don't have exact models but it will consist of conventional profiles (front light/gobos/specials), LED PARs (downlight/backlight), and an LED skydrop wash. They currently don't own any moving lights or DMX toys but that could be coming. Dimming is accomplished through Strand R21 powered raceways. (these have already been installed but they're also new so I'd take any tips on working with those as well!) Thanks for your time!
