Works but not so easy to use
There is just one fade in/out time that is shared with all scenes.
Clicking the buttons is very loud. You can hear the CLICK sound all the way to the audience.
The labels of the buttons are difficult to interpret. It is very difficult to know if the fixture number 7 means the button above number 7 or below number 7.
You need to set up all lamps as multiple of 10.

Mapping the sliders to DMX channels:
Keep the PATCH button pressed for 3 secs to enter patching mode
Activate the lamp by pressing the button in FIXTURES
Use SPEED and FADE sliders to choose the right DMX channel
Press button under the slider you want to attach to this channel.
When everything has been programmed press PATCH again.

Use for bulbs:
Activate the lamp by pressing the button in FIXTURES
Use Dimmer slider to set the light

Use for Color LED lights:
Activate the lamp by pressing the button in FIXTURES
Use FUN, RED, GREEN, BLUE to set the color (W,R,G,B)
USe Dimmer to set the intensity

Programming SCENEs and CHASEs are well described in the manual.

Conclusion: it works if you have a light man during the show. For a system run by actors it is better to get a much bigger computer based setup with support for running both sound effects and lights by a single button press. This is the way we are heading now after a few years with Stairville LED Commander 16/2.

Great entry level DMX board
Chris333, 13.07.2019
I currently have 2 of these and have recommended them to a few colleagues. I would have no issue adding another if needed. I normally use these for lighting rigs with around 20 fixtures which would be a mix of LED lighting, moving heads, strobes, blinders etc.

Very easy to programme scenes and chases into the desk. I often put these out on a dry hire where a lighting tech is not needed. Label the scenes and clients have no problem navigating the board. Super easy to explain.

Both of mine are in flightcases and I have had no issues with them over the years. Buttons etc are all still working fine.

The power supplies have held up fine also despite being the flimsy looking DC adaptor type. An improvement would be an IEC input. Overall a great little lighting desk for very little money. Put it in a flight case and it will last you years.
