Has anyone had any major issues with one? Like would you totally discourage or encourage to use one? Because I have heard they crash?? But how often has that happened to you? I have a Hog 500 and 1000. I have only had those croak on me about 3 times in the past 4 years.
How about a Maxxyz? Any hard switches going from A hog to one of those?
I haven't had the IPC crash on me yet.. I've had the road hog slow down to a crawl...
All depends on how much your programming, what kinda of effects you using etc.
If you want rock sold, go with a GrandMa Series 1...
I have heard reports that the latest software build is unstable on the IPC and Road Hog. I did experience this a bit on my last show using a Road Hog, a small number of units (32 LEDs and 36 movers) with just some pan/tilt and color effects slowed the console down to an annoying point while programming. However saving the programmer as a que and then playback only was okay. For what I was doing, I didn't worry much about it as it was a simple one time look. However, I am now a bit more worried about a larger show on the latest software build.
stay away from martin consoles, id try out a magic Q, i havent had a lot of problems with ipc's but would rather a road hog or whole hog
dont even think about owning a Maxxyz. it is the anchor that sank the TITANIC. go Greyhound = GrandMA.
I would agree with you if you're referring to the original full size Maxxyz, but the Maxxyz compact and the M1 are a whole new ball game. Comparing the full size maxxyz to their new hardware is like comparing the Hog500 to the Road Hog. They've come a LONG way.
