  • Doing everything we need

    As reviewed by Todd Goepferd on 1/6/2011

    I purchased this for our church after demoing a ETC Smartfade 12/48 DMX controller ($1300). Our church has an ETC Unison 24 channel dimming rack installed which controls the house lights and 4 light bars with a combination of Ellipsoidal and ETC Source Four ParNel lights. We have not added an LED lights yet, but expect to do so in the next few years. I was concerned that the Chauvet board, being roughly 1/6th the cost of the ETC board would be short on features or quality. Since I've only had it a few weeks, I cannot speak to longevity, but I can say that it feels solid and definately has all the features I need which include: Ability to program multiple scenes for use during church services, dramas, and small plays ( children's musicals mostly ), ability to jump into manual mode with easy access to 48 DMX channels, room to grow, adjustable fade times. I was able to program a handful of scenes for our worship services in about half an hour once I understood how to program the scenes. I did find the manual weak, but enough to get me going. The tricks I learned are to keep the fade time fader up all the way initially so that the lights respond quickly. Also, once you are in record mode, it stays there until you exit record mode. That is nice for recording multiple scenes quickly. Entering record mode is not at all intuitive and requires numerous button presses, so follow the exact steps in the manual. If you have to jump into and out of record mode often, it would be annoying. My only complaint is that the push buttons make a clicking sound. Since, I only use the faders for services so that is not an issue. We had some people stand in various spots near the sound booth and none of them felt the click was noticable or distracting. In fact, they only noticed it when I pointed it out. It would not be a problem at all when music is playing, but pressing buttons during a sermon or other speaking time could be an issue.

  • Great small board packed with big features

    As reviewed by George on 12/8/2008

    I recently purchased this board to use on a long term MTV Show. It was simple to use right out of the box. It's packed with a lot of features usually found on far more expensive controllers and I look forward to experimenting with them. My only complaint is that the LEDs are so bright that the glare they produce makes it hard to read the board unless you shine a brighter light onto the face of it. Overall a great value for the money!

  • Chauvet Consoles = CRAP!

    As reviewed by Nick Logue on 5/28/2011

    This console may be the worst I've ever used for any production in my entire life. The first one that came was defective so they had to send me a new one, then when I finally got the new product a week and a half later (Chauvet customer service sucks by the way) I opened it up, checked it out and turns out nothing was broken the 2nd time. 1st of all the there is no MIDI at all besides to link to other consoles and exchange show files. 2nd you can only have 12 submasters at once because if you try to change pages it takes all of the subs from the other page out. 3rd the faders feel like plastic and the DMX response sucks and feels like crappy 8 bit scanner motors. 4th the product has no on and off switch. 5th its impossible how to figure out how to assign anything on the console besides the Aux switches which are a great touch by the way! 6th the audio input is a single RCA?! Sucks! 7th you can only put playback cues on the bottom row of faders. 8th you can't reassign channel numbers to anything on the 2nd page. Need I go on?! Furthermore I have returned the console to chauvet bought 2 BCF 2000's and am currently running Freestyler DMX on my laptop in tangent with 2 BCFS and its amazing what you can do with it compared to the peice of crap Obey 40 you see here. Yes your right Chauvet it does Obey when you can only tell it do 5 THINGS!!!!! If you have ever worked with a HOG or a Grand MA do not purchase this console or you may be forced to inflict bodily injuries upon oneself.
