Comments about Elation DMX Operator Programmable DMX Controller:

Great unit. Instruction Manual is set up for users with previous knowledge of these type of boards. Just get the addresses right on the lights then experiment or use YouTube. There are a lot of independent user vid's that will help you learn this DMX controller.

So Far So Good

By Kurt Fisher

from Kresgeville, Pa

Comments about Elation DMX Operator Programmable DMX Controller:

Other than having the world's worse manual ever written, this is a nice unit for the price. It's really easy to program once you figure it out but I'm still trying to figure out how to get it into manual scene mode (without chases) without unplugging it.

Simple yet somewhat versatlile

By Mike

from NJ

Comments about Elation DMX Operator Programmable DMX Controller:

I bought one of these operators, along with 3 moving heads and an Atomic 3000, for my home system mainly to learn about DMX lighting and just to put on a decent show when throwing parties and gatherings. It�ۡ���s not very fast when trying to make quick manual changes on the fly. Making manual changes while running a user-designed movement macro is very limited. (All channels fade at whatever the fade speed is set to) The shows look very professional if they are programmed properly by the user but once again, manual control is limited and latency causes problems. Although there are some difficulties with this device, everyone complimented on my lighting system and was very impressed. I would recommend this product to anyone new to DMX lighting. Furthermore, I would not recommend controlling more than 5 or 6 DMX lights (lights should all be exactly the same) or lights that have more than 8 channels with this device; par cans, maybe scanners, that�ۡ���s about it.

Great Bang for thr Bucks!

By Unity Reggae Band

from Baltimore, MD

Comments about Elation DMX Operator Programmable DMX Controller:

I have had a great time with this unit and would recomend it for bands and DJs alike. The unit is plug and play, but if you want manual control instead if using the chase scenes, then you have to call the company to find out that you have to re-boot and turn fader 1 all the way up to 255 to emable this feature. Overall:"I'm Loving It"...
