Beat triggering – more information


Thanks for expressing more interest in this idea.

At the moment if you want to leave Fiesta running unattended (not physically pressing keys to trigger effects) you would click demo mode and tick the appropriate pages, the laser then plays the selected effects to play over time.

How long each effect is played is set by setting the duration of the time.

What would be useful, in a club environment, is the ability to step through the effects tagged in demo mode, to the beat of the music.

This would require analysing the music, detecting what is the base beat to determine the BMP (Beats Per Minute) then allow the effects listed in the demo mode to be triggered at this speed.

I hope this clarifies the idea. If you are unclear you can download the Light Jockey program from martin it has a beat analysis module that i use to run Intel lights through steps in a scene.
