Post by DJ-T » Thu Mar 24, 2022 8:09 pm

Ape Labs has introduced a new 7 Channel DMX mode for all Products in the current Firmware 5.0 and replaced the previous 3 Channel Mode (Dimmer, Program, Speed).

7 Channel „R,G,B,W,Dim,Speed,Musik“ (replaces first mode Dim,Prog,Speed)

1 R (0..255)
2 G (0..255)
3 B (0..255)
4 W (0..255)
5 Dimmer (0..255)
6 Speed/Strobe (0..255) strobe time on=off= in seconds:
0: Off
1: 513850 = 142h = 5.9days 🙂
2: 64231 = 17.8h
3: 19031 = 5.3h
10: 513 = 8.55m
20: 64
37: 10.1
64: 2.0

Would it be possible to update this in the official profiles for ApeLight Maxi, LightCan, ApeStick 4, ApeCoin?

We'll need official documentation from Ape Labs.

This should only be a hint, since the fixtures also have the WWW marking.

Then I change the whole thing myself with the Fixture Builder.

Here is the official changelog from Ape Labs, the new firmware is available now.

Sorry I'm a bit 'late to the party' on this one :(

I have 15 apelab maxis configured in a single group (B) on my Wolfmix

Is there an easy way to activate 'MusikMode' for all these fixtures and save it as a preset please?

Thanks

DJ Gaz
