Foot control for Spectres & Par cans
« on: March 26, 2006, 02:48:47 pm »

Hi

I have 2 NJD Spectres
4 Par56 long nose Par cans
Showtec Multi-dim 4 ch dimmer pack
Showtec Lightfoot 4 ch lighting controller (DMX only)

I play keyboards in a function band and need to be
able to control the above lights via foot contol.
The Showtec Lightfoot and Multi-Dim seem to be more suitable for
the Par cans as they are 4 channel devices but I would like to control the NJD Spectres aswell from one foot controller.
The NJD spectre is DMX512 (1990) compatible and I have been using
the SFC1 hand held unit supplied with the Spectres.
I've looked at the NJD S-pedal which is designed for the
Spectre,datamoon and other NJD lights but would this run the
Par cans aswell?
Any help would be welcome,
Dan.

Really need help here.
I've bought this Showtec lightfoot recently but need
something that will access the colour scolling and saturation
on the Spectres and save 'chases' and 'programs' to run at gigs.
The NJD Merlin would be ideal but way over my budget.
Would a Showtec Lightdesk Pro 136 do the job as it also has basic foot control?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Dan, this looks like an Elation/ADJ DMX Operator Pro; I've used a few of these, but never used the footswitch option. I'm guessing that the switch steps between scenes, but the manual does not even mention this function; it may only work on the PAR side or the "intelligent" side, who knows?
I would contact your supplier on this, and hound them until you get an answer. I am constantly doing this with ADJ and Chauvet here in the US.

Thanks for the reply.
I think the pedal controls scene up/down,full on & blackout.
I've contacted Showtec about control possibilities for my
NJD Spectres & par cans.
