The music venue I'm currently working at has an amBIENT XC unit controlling around 255 RGB channels of LED fixtures down a single universe. The LED fixtures in the venue are split into 2 groups; lighting for the bars and lighting for the audience space. I would like to program a couple of static scenes, one simply with all the fixtures blue (for pre/post show) and one with the audience lighting off and the bar lighting blue and dimmed to around 20% (for during show).
At the moment I have changed one of the lightscapes so all the colour options are blue. I then changed the fixture patch so that the maximum output of the audience lights is half that of the bar lights. When a show starts I simply use the brightness slider on the amBIENT unit to dim the whole set-up until only the bar lights are left on.
The dynamic programming capabilities of the amBIENT are very impressive but I'm surprised it's not possible to program static scenes like this, unless I've missed something?
Also I see on the amBX Professional Lighting homepage that the unit can be controlled via an iPhone. Is there a guide to advise me how to set this up?
