Morphing/Cloning day to day on MQ

So since I leave to go on tour in about 9 days I was wondering if anyone had any tips or advice on morphing and cloning units for MQ. I already have a show file with almost 600 cues and all I'm running tour package wise is 6 volks lights, some blinders, and some led pars. Any input would be nice, things like when to draw the line on if it's going to be faster to morph or add it in to everything as best I can, or other tricks that will make my life easier.See More

Console strengths and weaknesses along with compatibility

Posted on June 13, 2010 at 8:14pm 2 Comments

So Thanks to the words of wisdom from my mentors and a couple of people on this website they incouraged me to look past that hog. Well I was already looking at other consoles at that point but just didnt really care to much about them. But Now I have scoped out the majority of the consoles on the market today and heres what I have to say about it.

Personnally My main desk is still the hog 3 but I have learned how to operate pearls, express(ion), and the magic Q since then. Hog…

led par Vs. 1k par

Posted on June 2, 2010 at 7:42pm 10 Comments

So im sitting here crunchign numbers putting in designs bids and equipment list and im thinking What would be cheaper bringing 1k pars or the new elation tri pars for down stage lighting. Mainly because we just got like 24 of them in the shop and they are pretty bad ass im impressed they are one of my favorite led products out on the market considering they only cost like $400 ea. But you know the led pars have a wide spread smooth color mixing strobe and are very bright. Im not sure if they…

So I want to know why is it that even high quality moving lights are always breaking, Its bull shit. You know think about it sure they have a lot of parts in it but so does your car, and look it your car your car will go a year or two sometimes before you have to maitnence it. Or look at computers like your laptop your laptop gets thrown around a lot when your on the road. i know whats inside of them and that they have a lot of peices but my only point is is That look at other machinery in the… Continue

Hey, I wasn't at Camp Bisco, but a good friend Brian McNutt ran lights for the 'B' Stage. If I have insider and info I can write about an event. I'd love to add some of your pictures and will give you photo credit ( only if you want ). I invite you to always drop me a line about your gigs and locations. It's always great to have your jobs documented for reference to get that future gig!

Hey Cody,

 

It was great to have met you during the Production Technology course with Rich. 

 

I'm glad to have put a face with the name, and look forward to seeing you out on the road, or at a tradeshow or training again soon.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to call, or email.

thank you

oh i see! well ì think it will be in USD instead local money, so i think is better.

hehe yeah this would be the first time i go on tour so that`s why i`m asking just to have a good price for my work :P

here we are paid per day of event but when the event will last more than two weeks or be several shows it`s an amount per all the shows, you know companies don`t want to pay that much.

thanks.

Hi! thanks for reply to my discussion about the avarage wage for a tour.

sorry what a perdium means? :S, well he TM said it would be places like house of blues so i guess is medium size and it would be the house rig so any design is required, just will program and run the shows.

 

so they pay you the show days, but if ask money per show what about the off days and travel days?, i think is better per week, don`t you think? :)

Hey Cody,
Actually just 1 year. I took time off to enjoy life for a while - and am now doing some freelance writing in our industry. Feels good to stop and breathe. I hope you are well and learning lots of new things.
