@ Diamond Jo's Mississippi Moon Bar Dubuque 10/24/2013
House lighting was run on an ETC ION console and my cue stack was built with the assistance of the house LD Mark. He knows his rig and console inside out.
Thw visible fixtures are my touring rig of ADJ P64 LEDs and Chauvet 250 LED Intimidators, all run on ShowXpress. Here are some photos from the show

And I would love to bring it on the road. But currently we are doing one off dates in Wisconsin and Iowa for festivals, city events, or our annual 2 day hometown event at the 2000 seat Meyer Theatre in down town Green Bay.

I don't have it up and handy. However I can say this:
With exception to some generator scenes and a dozen specific mover focuses; the show is custom built according to groups of lights. Whatever I need for a look I build and save the scene into a file of whatever album, then song it is for. After that I put them into a "technical" page in Live, then build a page in Live for macros. Then I just use the macros I need, like cue steps.
Currently I have about 1000 scenes built and enough Macro pages in live to cover the entire albums of:
-Wish You Were Here
-Dark Side of the Moon
-The Wall (Double Album)
I also have a dozen other hit songs they do, as well as I have started working on building the Animals album.
So for a 14 minute song like Shine On I-V, I have about 20 macro buttons that say things like:
Prep/Home
Intro
Key Intro
1st Ax 1 Solo
2nd Ax 1 Solo
Key Solo
1 Vox Verse
1 Vox Chorus "Shine On..."
Sax Solo
Outro
End/16 sec GBO

I wouldn't do it that way again. My regular weekly rock gig I have every light fixture palletised on mostly prest buttons. If I want a fixture in green, 2nd gobo, spinning CCW med. and do8ng a figure of 8. I just chose all those buttons from pallete pages in Live and save them to a Macro. I can build an intro, verse, chorus, solo, outro scenes (looks) in minutes and then save it all to a page in Live under the song name.
On my 2nd Live page I have pallete shortcuts to build things on the fly.
I know ShowXpress is not really a pallete based program so I just built it myself to behave that way.

Support:
This is a gig I did on October 28th of last year. I patched in the house conventionals for this show, each colour I patched was 12 conventionals each, I know this because I just did our annual show here last Friday. My patch of 4 >10 fixtures worked just fine with 7.1.7, but on Saturday I went to my other show with 7.1.12 and its multiple >10 input patches no longer work.
So if there was a limitation, it only showed up in 7.1.12, at the first time I used it in a show.
I cannot do either show if this limitation, which suddenly showed up without warning, is now going to be a factor.
