Re: My 2011 and how/why I failed
Well I have the same sob story here. I only managed to get a RGBW mega-tree together (16 channels), two 20' arches (16 channels), 7 white mini-trees + RGB on one (10 channels), and one white yard light pole (1 channel) under Vixen control before I gave up trying to add more stuff. I did have other lights up (including a string of 50 GECE on the house and some other self animated items). I managed to get ZERO songs sequenced, but I did have the lights running a fixed sequence trying out different effects every night as I tried different things and if I liked it, it stayed in the sequence. I was happy with the results and the direction I am headed (and got the wife bought into the idea) but I have a long way to go to get to what I have in mind (double the mega tree channels, add another arch, add snowflakes, add the FAST tubes, add a Holdman star to the mega, get all the other elements under Vixen control, etc.). I had a BALL doing it and I got good comments from the neighbors so full steam ahead for next year!!
