Title: Equinox Swing Batten 12ch & 16ch
Post by: Paul Jones on June 10, 2022, 07:10:22 PM
Hello,

Could you please build a personality file for the Equinox Swing Batten for the 12ch & 16ch. There is a 6 ch version but it doesn’t give me the exactly what I’m after.
Thanks in advance.

Paul Jones

From your previous posts on the forum it seems that you are using Cuety-LPU1.
Sadly Cuety cannot manage fixtures with sub-fixtures (pixel individual control). The 12 and 16ch modes of your fixture are using subfixtures to control each light individually, this is why they are not showing up in the cuety library.
Anyway there is a turn around, using the Vbuilder software you can create one fixture for the main control and then use a single channel generic dimmer fixture for each LED. Patching the main control fixture at your fixture DMX address and then 8 single channel dimmer fixture from dmx address +4 you will end up with 9 fixtures in cuety that will allow you to use the 12ch mode.
I hope this will help you,
Enjoy ;)

Hello Julien,

Thanks for your reply. I’ve spent the last few hours trying to do exactly what you’ve suggested but I’ve totally failed!!
Can the equinox 6 channel personality which is already in the patch library be edited so that tilt & tilt speed can be added as a sub?
Any further help with this would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Paul J

Sadly the 6ch personality cannot be used as a base. for 12ch mode.
Can you send me the file you have create to let me have a look at it?
