    Default 8 channel vixen 2.1 sequences please?

    Hi all.

    Last year was my first show, which with thanks from users on DIYC I had the following songs..
    Wizzards of Winter, Trans Siberian Sleighride, Chritmas Eve Sarejevo

    I've tried for soooo many hours just to sequence one song myself, but I'm holding my hands up to being a struggler on this one!!

    Has anyone got any other 8 channel sequences please for more traditional stuff, ideally I'd like something like Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas", or stuff like Santa Claus is coming to town etc etc.?

    I've found a few like these in a thread from one guy, but it appeared like his vixen sequence had literally been created from a spectrum analyser - not quite looking how a sequence should look.

    I know it's cheeky guys but I am BEGGING for your help! Please???

    Thanks for the suggestion, but all I could find is 16 channels minimum. I don't mind editing it to just 8 channels, but they all also had ramping effects etc. and I only have an 8 channel on/off basic relay board
    Thanks anyway

    That's what we had last year.
    Let me see if I can get my 2009 sequences together. Do you have an email address to send them to?

    Any sequence with dimming can be converted to use only on/off channels by following a simple procedure:
    1. set the Max level to 1 in the Settings for the sequence; this will chop any values greater than 1 down to 1, giving you just 2 values: 0 and 1, with 0 meaning "off" and 1 meaning "on"
    2. set the Max level back up to 255
    3. select all the cells in the sequence, then use the Find and Replace function to change all the "1"s to "255"

    Depending on how the ramping and fading effects were done, using a threshold of 1 for "on" might not look good. You might want to use a higher value, like say, 128, since it is half way up the scale from 0 to 255. In that case, you could use a procedure similar to above, but you would need to change it around to first set a Min level of 127, then a Max of 128, then set them back to 0 and 255 and use the Find and Replace function 2x, once to set the 127s to 0, and once to set the 128s to 255.

    Would it be possible to beg for the sequences as well?

    I'm running a modified LASOC setup with 11 channels total, but the 8 channel sequences are great starting points. I would be more than willing to share final product in return!
