request - duplicate universe on 2nd physical output

Postby dumbfungus » 07 November 2019, 20:35

Should be a breeze, and sort of surprised it’s not already built in

I have a chauvet xpress1024. One venue that I am headed to set me up in the middle and I have to run DMX in 2 directions.

None of their fixtures overlap addresses, and it all easily fits in one universe.

I would like my USB box to send universe #1 out of both hardware outputs.

Addendum: can we also have a way to merge both outputs into one universe? It would be great for instances when there is no overlap. Otherwise, maybe an option to select priority, if both universes have Data at same addr?

fixtures in a second universe already have scenes. I want to be able to wire them into the first universe. Some smaller gigs it makes more sense. Or is there a way to copy scenes built in Univ2 , and apply them to Universe1?

To wire the fixtures from second universe to first universe, you have to use the function "Change universe" (right click on the fixture to get this menu).
Then all scenes related to this fixture will automatically play the scene on first universe.

Thank you. Excellent tip.

However, it would still be very interested in having universe 1 sent to both physical ports.
