Can the sequences (buttons) of the frontier run simultanious, or only 1 at a time.

For example, is it possible to program 4 par-chases under the first four buttons, and program 8 intelligent sequences for the next 8 buttons, and use the last 4 for special effects or strobes. Something like that ?

Maybe with the possibility to group the buttons, so only 1 of the first four sequences can be used, and only one of the 5 t/m 12th buttons can be used, and the last 4 independently ?

Or do you have 16 sequences, where only 1 can run at a time.

Hi Remy,

Originally, the concept of the Frontier is designed for playback of one track/sequence at same time, like the Elite unit does.

However, now we are at the stage of developing the firmware for the Frontier and we are going to try have multiple tracks running at same time, where only one track is a dynamic sequence and any other active track is a static scene working in HTP mode. This would allow special effects like strobes or smoke generators to be toggled from one of the buttons, independently of any running sequence.

Allright.

Maybe my ideas were a little bit complicated, and too much for the aimed uses. But setting buttons (sequences) as dynamic (run solo) or HTP is a great addition to the functionality. Smoke, strobes or a lit stage are things that can come in handy for any application ( bar-dancing / mobile / rental).
