Playback Sequence

This tutorial explains how to Run a Sequence and some other Options that you can do with your Sequences

But you can do more with the Cue window:

- Cuelist buttons
- Control sequence by time (elapsed / realtime):

- Submasters

Click on the “Cue” icon on the toolbar . The following screen appears:

Playback a Sequence

- Go to the menu and click on “insert sequence” Or press on

- Select the scene or sequence you would like to insert in the list and drag it to the cuelist.

- Repeat until all desired sequences are loaded into the cue

To play a sequence, press on the corresponding sequence button.

All sequences can run a the same time with LTP (latest takes precedence).

(Make sure you have configured the “Multiselect” Setup→Freestyler setup→Preferences→Extra options or keyboard shortcut) Set the playback speed off a sequence by sliding the corresponding speed slider to the desired speed.

Right click on it to set it back to 100%

Here you have some other controls.

- Master speed - (the big fader) on 100% to start with, this scales the speed of all of the sequences in the cue window so you don't have to change each one. Right-clicking resets it to 100%.

- Release All - Release all manual override (e.g. if you had fixtures that you had manually changed the colour of, the sequence would not change their colours until you clicked this to disable that override)

- Disable Buttons - Disable all Override buttons

- Manual Trigger - Clicking this will move each sequence (that is set to react to manual/sync) to the next step. Click again to go to the next step… Right-click on the button to restore it to normal (speed controlled by the sequence).

- Tap Sync - You can set the tempo of the sequences by clicking this button (usually tap in time to the music). The first tap immediately advances the sequences to the next step and the second tap sets the duration of subsequent steps. So only 2 taps are needed but you can keep tapping to set your tempo musically if you like. Right-click on the button to restore it to normal (speed controlled by the sequence).
