Channel 1 controls the light intensity and the strobe rate. It also allows you to
execute a random "stand-alone" program using automatic or music trigger, and to
reset the fixture to its home position.
Channel 2 controls the rotation of the parabolic reflector. This channel has no
effect if the stand-alone program is selected on channel 1.
Channel 3 controls the color/gobo wheel. This channel functions even if the
stand-alone program is selected. When strobe is selected, the wheel alternates
between the selected position and the one before it. To strobe between open and
closed, select the open position.
Channel 4 controls the mirror drum's pan (swivel) angle.
Channel 5 controls mirror drum rotation. Channels 4 and 5 have no effect if the
stand-alone program is selected.
Channel 6 controls the drum's pan speed, allowing you to vary the speed with
controllers without cross-fade times. If your controller has cross-faders and you
use them, turn the speed function off by setting channel 6 to 0 percent. This
channel has no effect if stand-alone is selected.
