I am trying to wire up multiple LED walls into a Colorsource 20 and I am concerned that I will run out of physical faders for all of my fixtures. Is there a way to patch multiple fixtures into one physical fader. I want to be able to change the colors of our RGB LED strips in batch and record a playback of all the wall colors to one fader. I know how to create playback memories, but I'm worried about not having enough physical real estate. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.
In current software (v3.1.1), both sizes of ColorSource console are limited to 80 channels - 80 individual things you can control. You can control more physical fixtures than that in a couple of ways, but you will sacrifice individual control -
1. You can repeat and duplicate the address of your strips - make lots of them Address 1, say
2. In ColorSource, you can add many devices, then change them to use the same channel. This will show you a Conflict message, but you can ignore that - it will control all the channels 1 at the same time:
You would not be able to gang a bunch of lights together in control, create a color palette / playback for them, then un-gang the fixtures and have them play back that color.
