Record a Standalone Show:

  1. Open our EMU software.
  2. Navigate to the Settings gear icon in the top right corner, then navigate to the Output tab.
  3. Identify the device from the list; use the Rescan for Devices button if the device doesn’t appear.
  4. Click on the Settings gear icon next to the device, and navigate to the Standalone tab.
  5. If there is already a show on the DIN-Pixie, you must delete it within the Delete tab. Before beginning the recording process.

Fill out the following information:

  • Name the show in the Show Name Field
  • Set how many times to play the recorded show from the Play Count drop-down.
  • Set a delay between each time the show plays by using the Loop Delay drop-down.
  • Set whether you want it to play immediately on power-up or not using the Play on Powerup drop-down.
  • Set the number of DMX channels to record (the less you record, the longer it can record for).

  • Choose which Outputs will put out the data by selecting from the Output on the Port drop-down menu.

Select the Input from the drop-down:

  • DMX: This will record from the DIN Pixie’s DMX Input ports.
  • Art-Net (127.0.0.1) is an internal loopback address. The software outputting Art-Net would need to be outputting on the internal network adapter. The recording Universe will need to be set and match the incoming source.
  • Art-Net (x.x.x.x) is the IP address of your computer’s network card. The software outputting Art-Net would need to be outputting on the internal network adapter. The recording Universe will need to be set and match the incoming source.

  • We will then need to set the Universe.

You can record a perfect loop effect using the Recording Control section. This will listen to the Trigger Channel, and when the DMX value is equal to or above the set Value, it will start recording. The recording will then stop when it goes below that value. This channel doesn’t necessarily need to control a fixture/LED; it can be a patched dummy channel with no real-world function.

Click Record

When you are done recording, click Stop

Click Upload to DIN Pixie. Your show will upload (this could take some time depending on how many channels you recorded and for how long.)


Transfer Standalone Show (Export/Import)

A standalone show can be imported into the DIN-Pixie using the Import Tab, though if there is already a show on the DIN-Pixie, this will need to be deleted within the Delete tab first. Here you can ‘choose file’ (opening the standard File Explorer window). Once you have clicked Open, it will display the Standalone’s show’s information at the bottom of the Import Tab. Once you are happy, click on the DIN-Pixie button.
