    Default HLS Sequencer - Beta - Free to use

    I am providing my HLS Sequencer to anyone on the site that would like to use it (I maintain ownership).

    Jon Stenerson has written a very nice - Getting Started manual - which is included. Jon provides a step-by-step process to getting a sequence up and running - so Please read the manual - it will dramatically reduce any trial and error steps in learning.

    Jon's manual has been updated in Version HLS_Install_0D - so if you have an earlier version - please make sure you review this one!

    With Vixen - you identified your Controller up front.

    In HLS - you identify your Song FIRST. You must convert your Mp3 song to a WAV file using any of the free MP3 to WAV converters that are available on the Internet.

    To help you get started - I have provided a WAV file version of Music Box Dancer on my download site - Use it so you can get started immediately. If having the WAV file available to you causes any sort of a legal issue - I will remove it. The file is a self extracting zip (labeled as a exe). Download it into the folder HLS (after you have installed HLS) and execute it. The results will be a WAV file - ready to use in HLS.

    The process I have implemented is different in many ways from what you are use to in Vixen. Please take that into consideration.

    This release is considered Beta and should be viewed in that light. Please report any issues. I would also appreciate any comments.

    The following is a link to my DownLoad site. You are welcome to access the latest software any time.

    As I make changes - the new version will be posted and made available. --- Jon's manual is included in the package.

    The package (HLS_Install_xx.exe) is a self installing/extracting program. It will create a HLS folder on your C: drive and unpack the contents - which consist of Jon's manual, 2 supporting dlls, the Microsoft redistribution software if you require it, and the HLS program. It will also place a shortcut to HLS on your desktop.

    Enjoy.

    Joe

    HLS does not required .NET.

    HLS is written in native C++ and runs on a vanilla Windows computer. It has also run successfully on Linux machines using a Windows emulator.

    Thank you Joe. I'm just a newbie but I will play with it and leave you some feedback for what it's worth.

    Jon just provided an upgrade to his manual.

    I have removed the manual from the download package and have made it as a stand-alone downloadable file.

    Please update your version of Jon's "Getting Started" by accessing the website below.

    I have updated HLS to version 0N.

    Please make sure you use this version - it addresses two issues that were found.

    I had some debugging code left in which ignored the first 186 channels.

    Thanks.

    Note: Jon has Updated the Manual - you can acquire it from the download site

    Joe,
    This is a nice tool Thank you for making it. I am just starting and I can definately see using it for RGB sequencing. I have read the manual and was wondering if it is possible to put a background image in the "sequence preview (simulator)" like in Vixen? I really liked that option.

    Well I really dove into it and came up with some comments:
    I will PM you

    Has anyone tried this with any hardware yet ?
    If so can you give specific feed back on what you used .
    It would be good to know which controllers have been tested to work with hls .

    It has been tested on multiple Renards.

    I have check E131 on wire shark but no one has stepped up and said they have physically tried it.

    I just had a request for Renard DMX. What is the difference in protocol between non-DMX Renard and DMX Renard?

    Thanks.

    Joe
