Looking For An 8 Or 16 Channel Chaser Controller

I haven't come across one but would this work?...use 5 4-channel controllers.  One master controller on the slowest speed has a controller on each channel at a faster speed (fast enough to cycle through all four channels before the master moves to the next channel).  It would effectively yield 16 channels, although it would be pretty limited in the speed of the overall chase sequence.  But if you had several 4-channel chasers it would be interesting to try

Since I have a smart guy replying i'll tell you the rest of the story.  I built a 10' spiral tree this year and you wouldn't believe how many local people want me to make them one for next year.  They don't want to spend the money on a LOR set-up so I figured just put it on a chase loop.

Nice!  Want to build one for me too?  :P I have a mostly static display but I am thinking of eventually building a spiral tree and have it be the only animated part of my display.  It would be quite the focal point, I think.

 

I did read that Action Lighting will custom build a chase controller up to 16 channels, however considering their 4 channel controller is close to $100 I don't think it would be a cheap option. Probably not what your neighbours are looking for.  If there was some way to delay the start of a chase sequence using a simple 4-channel controller, you could probably get away with 2 4-channel controllers and have the sequences stagger.  I guess it would resemble a wave more than a chase but it might be a cool effect anyways.  Although it would require getting the 2 controllers EXACTLY in sync.
