Easy Stand Alone 2008
Step 5 - Stand Alone mode
If you would rather control your lights without any computer, in a few seconds you will be able to store your scenes into the box to activate Stand Alone mode. Depending on the DMX interfaces, starting scenes can then be carried out in sequential access by using "previous" and "next" on the box, via the external connector which triggers off up to 255 scenes in direct access or thanks to the touch-sensitive panel of the S.T.I.C.K.
1 - Write memory
It is now possible to write scenes into the memory of the box. If you wish to test in Stand Alone mode without quitting the software, it is necessary to uncheck the box labelled "Do not go in Stand Alone now" (4). The number of channels available in Stand Alone mode depends on the DMX interface (between 60 and 1024).
S.T.I.C.K : you can write up to 40 scenes (5 pages of 8 buttons) and their size depends on the memory card capacity. Scenes #1 to #8 will be automatically assigned to buttons 1 to 8 of the 1st page, then scenes #9 to #16 to buttons 1 to 8 of the 2nd page and so on.
2 - Erase memory
You can delete box-memory, Stand Alone mode will then reset all the channels to ZERO.
3 - Read memory
You can load a show from the memory of your interface. The loaded show won't have any patch information, you will have to create it if you ever need it.
4 - Do not go in "Stand Alone" now
You can test the stand alone mode without turning the sofware off by removing the check in this box. As long as there is a check, there will be communication between the software and the interface.
Caution: If 2 scenes (located on 2 different pages) use the same DMX channels, the priority between them follows the alphabetic order (A has the priority, then B and so on...).
