I have the DMX operator 384 S/N: 13554247 connected to some Inno Pocket Spots. It is working fine except that the joystick do not respond proportional, it should give small increments when just pushed slightly. (It react too fast)

The Pan and Tilt Speed can be adjust on the Inno Pocket Spot through DMX. While in 9 channel mode, channel 7 controls the movement speed. While in 11 channel mode, channel 9 controls the movement speed. The default speed is set to the maximum, use the channels mentioned above to slow down the movement.

I can use the MIDI and USB protocols simultaneously?

Hello Hernane,

THank you for reaching out to us. Unfortunately, you cannot run midi and usb at the sametime. It's either/or. If you have any futher questions, feel free to let us know.

I'm an audio engineer with a local band in WI. We just purchased the DMX Operator 384. We also have 4 SlimPar 56 lights from Chauvet. I have assigned fixture one starting point at d--1 on the light, fixture two at d--33, fixture three at d--65 and fixture four at d--97. Fixture one is responding completely out of sync with the other fixtures. Specifically the blue light on the control faders is backwards up is off down is full on. I am new to this but any help would be great. Is there a way to perform a factory reset on the DMX Operator 384? Thanks again.

Hello John,

Make sure the slim pars are in the same channel mode as the rest of them. If this doesnt help contact are service dept. 


Can I set fade times between scenes so I can smoothly fade from one scene to another?

Hello Kieran,

You cannot set fade times between scenes. You can only adjust the fade time. For example if you set a fade time of 5 seconds all the scenes are going to fade in 5 seconds. If you looking to set fade times for each scene I would recommed My Dmx 2.0 software for that. Let me know if you have any further qquestions.
