a few years ago I began to use the EOS (Element) in school for theatre activitys. Now I also use EOS Software for controlling lighting fixtures while DJing or while I support live bands at parties. But for me there was missing a kind of a BPM Master for effects, so that I can say that all effects running should use e.g. 150BPM and that the effect is preprogrammed to use this BPM. For example there are moving lights going from left to right and back in a sine wave. And there is an effect that modulates the intensity with a pulse wave. But the point is, that such a BPM Master would move the Light from left to right and back in one beat and lets the light turn on and turn off in one beat. Wouldn't look great. So it would be nice to define that the intensity effect turns on and off each beat and the period of going left to right is maybe 8 Beats - 1/8th of the default period.
Two days ago I tried to take first steps in GrandMA because I use 3D as an visualizer and I need MAonPC to translate the sACN sending from EOS to change the values in MA3D. I was then interested how MA works and noticed in a YouTube video, that there is an possibility of an speed master and that is the thing I thought of. In MA it is already existing. Exciting, isn't it?
I think it is too difficult to "tempo learn" every single running effect ;)
Implement it like this:https://community.etcconnect.com/control_consoles/f/eos-family/27835/feature-request-global-relative-tapsrequested since years.
I've been asking for a change to this since the first implementation back at the end of 2013.
Changes were going to be added in version 2.4 but it was cut from that release (a long with a lot of other things) and never finished.
Sadly I don't think anyone from the development team ever reply on this forum to 99% of the posts and maybe never read them.
Thanks for the input. Global filterable FX masters are available, but we have not yet implemented a global BPM master. It is on the development list. We are hoping to be able to return our attention to this area in the near future.
Again, appreciate the detailed request.
The new Luminosus update that came out today has a block for this. It can set multiple effects to the same BPM tempo, including different multipliers for each. You can tap the tempo or detect it from audio input.
More information can be found in the new Sound2Light tutorial right in Luminosus.
You can get it here: https://www.luminosus.org
Since luminosus isn't maintained anymore, it would be great to use it directly in EOS.
Hey Anne Valentino
is there anything planned about it? I'm still missing a efficient way to use Tap Tempo on EOS. I would like to use EOS more often for busking because there is so much possible but Tap Tempo feel like an essential part of busking. Please add it to EOS.
Thank you very much.
