Controlling a sub or master on a lighting board?
has anyone tried to slave the venue lighting board itself, as opposed to going straight to dimmers via DMX?
this show has a single Q that will be: built on a lighting console, recorded, and then run from a sub or master fader at various levels between 0-100%. the venue has no onstage control master so we are trying to figure out if it can be run through izzy.
we have a hardware midi interface (faders/buttons) to an isadora patch playing various sound movies on faders, and would also like to control the single light Q's intensity by having it be loaded at 100% on the lighting console and then raising and lowering the level on a 'grandmaster' run through isadora; ie, sending the instructions to the lightboard from the stage.
the main board is a Leprecon LP 1600+
is this possible?
I do this a lot with a variety of Desks but not this one before. looks pretty straightforward in the manual it says controller 55 will control the master.
good to know it has been done-
does that mean we need to send DMX signal? (with intermediate box i assume) or midi?
which actor combo do you use?
sorry about my ignorance, background is video
Midi send control will do it
