controlling 192 DMX channels allocated into 12 fixtures of 16 channels each and is ideal
for controlling of many intelligent fixtures including lasers, moonflowers, sweepers,
mushrooms, and scanners among others. The unit also features six cascadeable chases of 240 steps
which can be triggered either manually, automatically, or by sound. Fixtures can also be operated
manually at any time.

an organized way and also provides some other useful information. The Controller Schedule worksheet

each chase. The fixture sheet outlines the function of each fixture channel and how they should be
configured. The step sheet is used to record each step of a chase as it's being developed.
