The controller is extremely customizable. To change a hardware feature, connect the controller and open tools.exe. Tools.exe can be found in the software root directory. Make sure all other DMX software is closed.
Click here to update to the latest firmware. "Firmware" is a name given to the instructions stored inside the controller, which tell it how to work.
The test tab allows you to check that the controller is working correctly. Move the faders on the left to individually test each channel. B1, B2 and B3 allow you to check that each touch sensitive button is working correctly.
The DMX timing tab allows you to adjust the delay between each part of the DMX message. This tool is available to help fix issues with fixtures, which do not comply 100% with the DMX standard. Only change these if you have a problem with one of your lighting fixtures and once you have tried everything else!
The parameters tab allows you to set how the controller operates. Click the checkboxes inside the “Mode Enable” area to enable or disable any of the 3 modes.
In the top left area, it is possible to choose how the ON/OFF/MODE button operates. By default, a short touch of the ON/OFF/MODE button switches the controller on and off. Touching and holding will change the mode. If you want to have the controller permanently switched on, you could use a short touch to change the mode and disable "ON to OFF".
The “Default Settings” area allows you to select a mode and a scene to activate when the controller is powered up and switched on and off.
When you change the dimmer and color of a scene, the dimmer and color change will be permanently applied to the scene until it is reset by pressing the left and right arrows simultaneously. If you prefer, the color can instead be applied globally. When "Global" is selected, every time a scene is changed the dimmer and color will be reset permenantly. Global mode is useful if you want to adjust the color and dimmer for quick one time changes.
The device can be locked to prevent configuration changes or program updating. Enter the password here.
Once all settings have been updated, click the large button send the new settings to the controller.
The dimmer settings can be changed in the “Dimmer” area. By default, when the controller dimmer is set at 50%, the brightness of your lights will be 100%. As as you adjust the controller dimmer to 100%, the color of your lights will saturate to white. If you do not want to use the saturation feature, this can be changed to 0-100% so the brightness of your lights increase from 0-100% as the controller dimmer increases from 0-100%. The example below shows the dimmer effect on a magenta scene for each setting.
