Newbie - Easy Step & Scenes

Post by mOrSa » Thu May 13, 2010 11:51 am

Hi all. Thanks for this great product.

Let me explain what I need to do with Sunlite: a music have 2-3 parts (more or less). We may consider 3: verse, bridge and chorus. My question is how to manage to do this and make them grouped.
For instance:
verse - moving heads: blue, static
bridge - moving heads: blue + slow movement
chorus - moving heads: pink + strobe

As I'm discovering Sunlite I saw that there is Easy Step but it will only work time-base(am I wrong?). Is there a way to jump the "Scenes" inside a Easy Step or a Cycle not considering the time. This is for live performance, as so the time can be extended or reduce so I have to change Scenes on the fly. So I would "group" the scenes in a certain order and change it with a mouse click or a key ( or even with bfc2000 that we bought )
If I have 3 scenes, each one for a song, we play 50 songs so I will have 50 * 3 = 150 Scenes. Is there a way to make them reusable. I'm a bit confused about cycles and easy step... I've been reading that section of the manual but I just can figure it out.

Thanks in Advance,
Best regards

Hi Mário

The usual way would be to just create a scene or cycle for each part of each track. Yes the screen can eventually get quite crowded. I advise that you create a compression for each track to group the scenes together and keep everything tidier.

You can skip to the next step within a cycle by selecting the "go" buttons within the cycle window.

These can be linked to the bcf:
1. right click a button within the console editor
2. Select the "New Command" button
3. Navigate to "Cycle" and select "go to next button"

You can also link cycles to MIDI time code.
