DMX400 faders are not 'linear'

Post by martie » June 21st, 2017, 9:06 am

When using the built-in faders, belonging to the DMX400 controls, like speed or intensity 85% of the total range is unusable, they do not change anything.

However, the upper 10% is very sensitive. It almost looks like the controls are logaritmic instead of linear. As we are using a MIDI-controller with a small fader, setting up speed is very sensitive. Can it be changed so the full fader is linear? So 50% of slider up = 50% of max dmx400 speed


ps. Mantis is broken as we get application error #11.

Hi Martie. Does the DMX 400 works normally when operating with the sliders in FS, not with your external controller?

Even with a reset of FS or no external controls attached

I would suggest to re-install FS
