We are running a cuecore2 and a Bstation2. There are cuelists running on the cuecore and the bstation is running as a remote. Is it possible to change the ledcolor on the bstation with every cue on the cuecore?

Yeah that is definitely possible :)

Are you using OSC to communicate between the B-Station2 and the CueCore2 already? I recommend using this for the feedback setup. You will need to enter an OSC target on the CueCore2 settings page, so the OSC commands will be send to the B-Station2. You can enter the IP of the B-Station2 + the port, or simply use a broadcast address like this: (port 8000 is standard, but it can be changed on the settings page of the device)

You will need to use the action source "Playback", and add an Action for every cue. Set the TriggerType to CueChange, and select the right playback and cue under TriggerValue.  The TriggerFlank should be set to Active.

Now you have an Action for every cue. When you change cue in the playback, the Action with that Playback and Cue number wil fire. But it won't do anything as long as we don't add a task to the Actions. We will add the OSC task, to send a colour to the B-Station2. We will be using the API for this, so you won't have to configure anything on the B-Station2 side. (Watch out though, the API prefix is default "core" but can be changed on the settings page.)

With the OSC task selected, set the Feature to Send Colour, and the Function to Set. Now we only have to set Parameter 1 and 2. The first parameter will decide which LED you want to set. The API command is:

Where the 1 can be anything from 1 to 6, for the 6 LED rings on the B-Station2.

Parameter 2 is the colour you want to send for this Action/Cue.

If it does not work, make sure the default LED intensity is at 100% on the B-Station2 settings page. (Or you could set it using another OSC command, just use the same command but send a float instead of a colour)

I have added some screenshots below as an example.
