Did I Bite Off Too Much...


Recommended Posts

This is a pretty good choice, very clear beat to give you background. If you are like me, your first one will be more of a learning than anything... you will learn more and more, then come back to it and realize you could have done so much more with it.

 

Enjoy!

Guys I hear you. I have been doing it for a long time now and I still have problems. I just stumbled across a new Tutorial on the LOR forum site. For some reason, PC is not allowing me to cut and paste the link into this thread, but it is in the LOR Forums>LOR Software>Sequence forum, titled, 4-Step Sequencing Tutorial.

 

I learned a few things from it. The first tutorial is really worth the time to watch

It's actually the beat that is beating me, with the off beat followed by the double beat....getting the timing right is very frustrating!

I am having similar problem.. but its my on board audio I think.. it just cant seem to manage very short clips of an mp3.. like half a sec.. without tripping out.. I have to rebuild my Monster soon anyway.. have new card for it already.

I caught those on YouTube too.....very useful, in fact I am trying to use the method in the first video where he just has the 9 channel set up to no device purely for song interpretation. The beat pattern on this song is different!

You could dub those 9 channels as "Dead Channels" because those channels are where the various voice/instrument goes. This is the hardest & where the most work will be but once you have all the various markings down then the rest of the actual sequence that make the lights dance goes much smoother, faster. My Lcc file already contains the 10 "Dead Channels" & that is why I skip right to the upload "saved configuration template " section. For the most part my display items usually only change & sometimes how the controllers are set up, & even if the controller set up does change then I can go back to a previous template.  Here is something I like to do, I like to sequence words but not just for singing display items but for the Marty Fan & Mini trees. Take the song "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen"  In one of the "Dead Channels" I call "Voice Fade up/Down" I group words together. So "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen" I put a fade up for that whole group of words. "Then with the next group of words "Let Nothing You Dismay".....I fade down the whole group of words. Now "Remember, Christ, Our Saviour" ...fade up "Was Born On Christmas Day"...Fade down.

 

This kind of song is good to have mini trees sway from side to side (works well say from 7 mini trees upward)...the effect seems to be more smooth with more trees I had 16 mini trees then dropped it to 8 & even 8 looked good. The same technique works well with the Marty Fan. Loud cymbals could be used for arches if you have enough cymbal spots being used through the song. I had people that I share sequences with & watched the videos I put up say "the lights flow smoothly, blends in well".  After 7 years of musical computerized displays I am still learning &. I am still my own worse enemy when it comes to sequencing.

 

I never knew there were Tutorials on sequencing I simply got out & tried on my own. Then I viewed one yesterday & I thought how close in some cases we sequence alike....I think most of us have some of the same techniques. No matter how we judge our own work we do get better year after year, & others will let you know & those that let us know we need to listen to the advise with grace & see if the sequence can be improved upon.
