Fixtures are highlighted in dark blue if in the programmer and in light blue if selected.
The console runs Avolites Visualiser internally. This allows you to view the output of the console if you can’t use the real lights, enabling you to make changes to your show at home or in your hotel. It can also be used in Blind mode for programming during a show.

2.3.8 Key Macro Buttons
Lighting programming can sometimes require a repeated sequence of button presses. You can record sequences of keypresses and play them back with a single keypress – this is called a macro.
Macros can be stored in the 10 dedicated buttons below the Preset Playbacks, and there is also a Macro button window which can be shown in the workspace. The macro buttons correspond to the first 10 macros in the window.
To record a macro:
1> Press the Macro button (above keypad)
2> Press [Record]
3> Press an empty Macro button on the panel, or an empty button in the Macro window on the screen. Recording starts. The Insert/Macro button flashes during recording.
4> Press the sequence of buttons you want to record.
5> Press Record Macro to finish recording.
Page 32 – 2. Setting up and using the console
To play back the macro, just press or touch the button where you recorded the macro. The macro will repeat all your button presses (but there is no delay or timing between the presses).
