I am using a Maxim XLP PatPad console and was trying to employ a simple RGB 5050 LED strip with a 3channel RGB LED controller from Lixada (Made in PRC).
If the LED controller is controlled by three Faders (three DMX channels), everything works fine. I can set scenes, apply fader times, save scenes and playback these scenes from a stack. Fading times are properly reflected in playback mode. However this takes three faders for individual control of one LED controller
I was trying to use the PatPad as this would only consume one fader per fixture. If I am using the Generic RGB template from the library to control the LED controller via the PatPad, the following problem appears:
Playback of saved scenes does not reflect the set and saved fading times. The LEDs will change their colors instantly in a spilt second and do not observe the desired and set/saved fade timings.
Am I using the wrong template?
Greatful for advice.
