Hi everyone! The Cobalt core team is meeting today and tomorrow and we would like your input. We will soon release the version 8.0 software that contains all new networking, updated tab handling with more configurable screen areas, and the Eos Magic Sheet engine. We're prioritizing the things we will work on next. What feature would you like us to consider for a future release?
First out, grate work with the V8. A good step forward for Cobalt.
And now the wishes:
This is what I have now.
On what level is the USB midi supported? Not this much: https://community.etcconnect.com/control_consoles/f/eos-family-show-control-support-midi-smpte-osc-rtc-etc/23773/midi-over-usb or?
Can I plug in a Midi over USB controller like a Korg Nano and set up faders and buttons for what I want?
I haven't used 2 scene mode. mostly because I use top and bottom rows on my master wing. And how would that work with colours and positions rather then just levels. Guess I have to try it out.
Cobalt supports one MIDI In and one MIDI Out, and all the Cobalt consoles already have those on the back.
(Many of the Eos consoles don't have any MIDI ports, so need USB ones)
So I have looked in to the two scene mode. And I see how it could help a little. My problem there is I need then just for colour like five sequeses (wash, sides, spots, footlight, cyc and if I have specials eaven more needed). And then a few for positions and not talking of the size of the beam sequense just for one type of spots.
I would like a mode like: press blind, select group wash, give them red move to Position 3. Select group spots odd, move to position 2 make red and open. And so on. Then press go.
Or if 2scene mode is used it’s posible to only use groups and effects on the masters and change them blind with pallets in DS. And save all the seq building.
You see the difrence? To not first make all the pallets, and then make all the sequenses and then find the right look in all the stepps. And just start when pallets done.
DMX Input via sACN (E1.31) has been available for quite a long time, it drives Intensity of 512 desk channels. Configure this in System Settings - select an sACN Universe and the starting desk channel number. - Master 20 masters the DMX input so you can fade out the external desk if need be.
Does that do what you need?
