Title: Visual Dmx tempo basing?
Post by: Allan Pardane on March 26, 2006, 09:55:55 PM
Hello Maarten and all others

  I have few guestions.
  I program sequenses for many different kind of music and I mostly use beats as timing source. That tempo interface works good but have some difficulties. When I program sequences to be tempo based, I´ll tie my hands a little bit cuz I can program only one colour,- movement,- shutter control on one beat. I´ll find it a problem for me. For example if I want to have lights flash three times at one beat then it´s just impossible to do it. Are there some clever solutions for my problem?
  Second guestion: Can I choose some hotkey to "tap" tempo? Its pretty annoying to tap tempo with mouse when my both hands are occupied, one on a joystick and other on a keyboard.


Thank you

A quick partial answer to your post: You can use the 'tab' button on your keyboard for tapping the beat.

I will come back to your other questions soon.

Dear Allen,

Regarding your question about programming e.g. 3 flashes on 1 beat, it is indeed a characteristic of the sequence editor that one step equals one beat, when the sequence is set to beat timing-source. Therefore, programming 3 flashes on 1 beat is, unfortunately, not possible.

We will consider facilitating this programming feature in future updates.
