    • Dimmer/colour effects to track bpm like chasers


      Hi all

      Have been loving this desk in particular the simple workflow and ease of creating great looking sets using effects.

      The bpm for dimmer/colour effects however is a bit confusing to get to be musical. Each beat is the effect running start to finish meaning if i have a soft dimmer across 4 fixtures each tap will run the full gammut all 4 fixtures moving up and down one after the other.

      If i want this to behave more like a chase (each bpm is one fixture going to full and back to 0 again) is this possible.

      Another way to explain this is the tempo is associated with all of the steps of the effect rather than each step. So as an example if you have a dimmer effect across 4 fixtures it will flash across all 4 fixtures for each beat rather than each dimmer associated with the effect per beat. This means the speed of the effect is dependant on the amount of fixtures associated with each effect.

      I hope this makes sense. Essentially I would like to use a master tap tempo and have it effect all of my effects and chasers equally rather than it be affected by how many fixtures are in each effect and have to set multipe tempo masters for each effect i program.
