Master Faders -100 to +100

Postby TWForum » 02 June 2021, 12:41

Hi,

Using ShowXpress on PC, I have setup 6 master faders set to dimmers for certain groups of lights. These faders run from the value -100 to +100. -100 is the lights fully off, 0 is the lights fully on. There is no change between 0 and +100, rendering half of the fader length useless.

I am using the software with an AKAI MPD26 that has 6 physical faders. This means that on the physical faders, the top half does nothing.

Am I missing something really obvious? Is there a way to change the software master faders to a range of 0 to +100?

Cheers

The Master Fader acts proportionally, from -100% of the normal value to +100% of the normal value.

As the master faders are set to dimmers, surely there's a way to get them to go from fully off to fully on? Fully on is currently half way up the fader, so it makes fades much less smooth...?

Please use the "Sliders" for standard (non proportional) faders.
FYI: https://thelightingcontroller.com/viewt ... =72&t=3647

With Master Fader, if you program the value of the channel to less than 100%, then the Master Fader section from 0 to +100% will change the value.
