So my wish is to use my manual light controller for certain tracks. Posted Tue 31 Oct 17 9: It's more about the way you program Freestyler.

FreeStyler DMX Theatre
I can send you a Freestyler Backup file if you want that you can load on Visualizer and see how I'm programming my lights to be able to manipulate them dynamically. So if playing a request without any DMX data added, the lights will not get updated anymore.
What you should do is to program Freestyler and get yourself a nice MIDI controller that you will dedicate to control your lights via Freestyler. Think that instead of creating specific cues and sequenses for different tracks, you can create some "generic" ones that you modify on the fly with action poi's or manually by using override buttons also known as statics or some advanced scripting: Posted Wed 01 Nov 17 9: Even when you see a "huge stand-alone DMX console" in reality it is a computer with external hardware controls that allow easier manipulation of it's software.
For large and demanding lightshows everything is computer based since ages ago!
Inside Freestyler itself you can assign a fader to one single function 1 to 1 programming With VirtualDj and it's scripting abilities I was able to use the same sofhware control different functions by using variables and other conditional queries. I have used Kontrol F1 in the past to control Freestyler. I wonder what the characteristics of such a controller are.
VIRTUAL DJ SOFTWARE - Combining Freestyler DMX and standalone DMX controller
If we need hardware would it not be better to get a dedicated lighting controller? Doftware example, the strob and a few lasers can be done from Freestyler to add effects timed with certain drops in tracks or similair.
I had to do some complex mapping though since it has only 4 faders and 4 knobs and I needed more So my wish is to use my manual light controller for certain tracks. Freestyler is more or less a software based DMX controller.
Let's put it like this: And the more sfotware light effects can be run either in automode, or through my manual DMX control. How well does this work compared to a hardware light controller? The best "stand alone" lighting desks out there are Martin's M series.
So, stop questioning whether a computer based solution with or without an external controller attached is better than a stand-alone hardware only solution. I won't get any 'automatic' functionality so to say.
Hm is it the APC40? Posted Tue 31 Oct 17 1: On your scenario, if a "new" track has no FS data stored in it, Freestyler will keep running your lights with the last CUE activated by the previous track.
I keep switching between it and a F1. This, with the addition of a special PAD page an extended version of the one available for download here and some action POI's allows me to fully control Freestyler and my show from within VirtualDj without having to bring Freestyler window on front the entire night. Another way is to let Freestyler control a few of the lights and the manual control the rest. Generally speaking it's not easy to combine 2 different DMX consoles.
Posted Tue 31 Oct 17 9: Posted Tue 31 Oct 17 5: It's more about the way you program Freestyler. Any advice how to move on is appreciated. Unless you have enough cash to get a controller running Martin M-PC! I don't like, in my case, the sound of a third usb controller?
