I like to light the stage blue at maybe 50% before the set and during breaks.
It gives some interest and lets the bands changeover or fiddle with their gear.


+1 and if you have a couple of uplights on drum kit they look really nice during the break.  With dim but tasteful lights it looks like you could take a photo and use it in an artsy magazine article about music.

I have one of the older Elation Magic 260's which is an older version of the Showdesigner.  Both the I and II are nice boxes but the 1 is  limited to 16 fixtures where the 2 supports 48. My Magic supports 24 and that gets tight, I think 16 fixtures would jam me up.

I also use the Chauvet ShowExpress and I find I can do a better job running sound and lights with the control surface of the Elation.
[/quote You can actually do more than 16 fixtures on the SD1 with a bit of creative patching. I never did get very good results from the Magic, as it had many more limitations compared to the SD series.

Maybe I just have just gotten used to it.  I don't do anything sophisticated.

Certainly a better unit than the others in that price range.
