RGB Colour Mixing on faders - FLX Series

Sometimes it's useful to have direct RGB control on faders for a fixture. This allows you to for example add Red in and Blue in using faders to colour mix and create Magenta.

To do this, follow the steps below...

 

Turn on the LED Fixtures you wish to have RGB control over to full. The first encoder wheel should display "Red". Tap the "Red" parameter name on the touchscreen above the encoder wheel, and you should see it goes from having a Dark blue background to light Blue background:

Now press and hold RECORD, and ensure SmartTag is disabled in the Record Options pop-up. It shouldn't have a Red Stripe next to it, if it does tap "SmartTag"

Then tap the button under the Playback you wish to control RED. Now tap "Red" on the touchscreen again, and you should see it goes back to having a dark blue background. Now tap "Green" on the touchscreen above the encoder:

Now tap RECORD, and tap the button under the Playback you wish to control GREEN. Now tap "Green" on the touchscreen again, and you should see it goes back to having a dark blue background. Now tap "Blue" on the touchscreen above the encoder:

Now tap RECORD, and tap the button under the Playback you wish to control BLUE. Now tap the middle encoder button any of the three RGB encoders to take you to the colour picker, and drag the onscreen fader to the right of the picker to 0%:

Now tap "Z", and tap the middle button of the "Intensity" Encoder Wheel, tap RECORD, and tap an empty Playback- this Playback is your Colour Mix enable/disable fader.

Now hold SETUP, and tap the Playback button of the "Red" fader, and tap "Colour" under "Fader Controls..." so that it has a red stripe next to it, and press OK:

Repeat this for the Green and Blue fader. Now hold SETUP + tap the Playback button of the Colour Mix Enable/Disable Playback you programmed, and under "Button Function" choose "Latch" so that it has a red stripe next to it...

 

Now Clear the programmer by pressing the CLEAR button until its LED goes out, and then when you want to Colour mix tap the button of your Colour Mix Enable/Disable Playback. You can then use your RGB faders to colour mix on your fixtures.
