Using virtual controllers to group channels - Part 2:
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Please note that  you do not have to do each channel individually. You can select a range of channels with the select tool and add them to the virtual controller at one time. Hope that makes sense.  You can view that process here You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Also be aware that there is a configuration option to hide channels added to a vc(s) in the parent controller. Selecting this option will hide the channels in the parent controller as is demonstrated in the above mentioned video.

David also showed how to add your controllers to a library. If you type in your own "Group" name when you "add" or "add all" you will create a group that is unique to your environment. That way when you can then drag your entire group to your grid and it will add all of your defined controllers to the sequence. You can view that process here You are not allowed to view links.

There are also some great videos on the LSP web site on the home page and also in the TIPS and Tricks section. Perhaps DM could also post his videos there so they can be shared with LSP users who are not members of this forum.

Now we just need a concept of a configuration which ties together the common LSP drawing, the controllers
and gives the ability to save the layers as well.

Create a sequence that has all of your controllers, drawings and layers in it then save it as a base sequence. When you create a new sequence just load the controllers from the base sequence and yu will get all of your controllers, drawings and layers.

Make sure you don't miss the addendum to DM's video in the post above.

Thanks Mike -- great tips!

Is there any proven way to import existing sequences and then get to the same place (with all your controllers and drawing) ? 

My concern is that I might need to do some scrubbing of LOR sequences (in advance of importing into LSP) ... so that it all works out nicely when I import.

Currently no way to "Load Default controllers during an import however you might try this.

Create your base sequence with drawings.
Add all of your controllers to the library under your own group.
Import the LOR sequence.
Drag the controller you created in LSP on top of the controller created during the import.
Or add your entire group to the imported sequence and the copy the effects from the imported controllers to you created LSP controllers. I think this is the slower of the two.
It does need to be done one sequence and one controller at time but at least you wont have to redo all of your drawings.

Hope that helps some..
Thanks
Mike

Thanks again ... I think the drag and drop method will probably work best for me.  Since I'm just going to be importing LOR PC16 controller based sequences ... its just a matter of dropping the right ones in.  Then all the new controllers (pixelnet) can be dragged in ... and then sequenced in LSP 2.    I'll need to try it and see what issues arise.  If I can minimize issues, I may re-arrange in LOR S2 first, then import.

Interesting, when I try to go there with my FireFox browser I get a big warning page instead:

"This web page at You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login has been reported as an attack page and has been blocked based on your security preferences."

Looks like the site was perhaps partially hacked.  If you respond to ignore the warnings you go to another site, but eventually the LSP site also shows up.

A few of us were having ussues of smartstring nodes not always lighting when they were supposed too while playing  from the sequencer with the output enabled. Ever with all the vizualizers off. However they do play fine from the scheduler.
