10Scene Window

QuickQ v6 adds full support for the SnakeSys 10Scene system. The new 10Scene Window allows users to configure 10Scene wall panels, gateways and zones.

10Scene Panel

The new 10Scene Panel tab allows users to emulate a wall panel in any of the 10 zones, or control all of them.

Contact Events

Each of the four 10Scene connectors on the back of the QuickQ Rack has a contact pin that can be configured to trigger an Execute or Playback or join two zones together so that the Wall Panels for both zones control the lights in both zones.

Gateways

The Gateways tab can be used to connect extra 10Scene wall panels to a QuickQ Console or Rack. Each Gateway has two 10Scene sockets and can control contacts 1 & 2. The firmware on the Gateway can be upgraded from the Gateways tab.

Settings

The 10Scene system can be configured from the 10Scene Settings tab. Connections to gateways and the buttons on the QuickQ Rack can be enabled in the Settings tab, and the 10Scene mode can be selected. When zoned control is selected the zones can be joined in this window.

There are also buttons that allow the zone of each 10Scene wall panel to be set.

Remote Control

QuickQ now has much expanded remote control possibilities. There is a new Protocols tab in the Network Settings where Ethernet Remote Control and Open Sound Control can be turned on and off. There is also a log of messages that have been received.

Open Sound Control (OSC)

Playbacks and 10Scene zones can be controlled by the OSC protocol. All the commands available from the Ethernet Remote protocol are also available from OSC. QuickQ can receive commands and also provide feedback to OSC applications such as TouchOSC

Ethernet Remote Control

The Ethernet Remote Protocol has had some new commands added. Using the protocol it is possible to:

MIDI Control

MIDI can be used to start, stop, Go, Pause and set levels on playbacks. QuickQ now uses the velocity of a note to set the level of a playback. A note from the next octave (starting at note 72) will press Go on a playback, while a note on the next octave (note 84 onwards) will press Pause on a playback.

Access Levels

QuickQ v3 introduces a new feature to lock down console programming. Access Levels can be used to prevent users from making unwanted changes to the show files.

There are 3 access levels, Admin is the default and allows unlimited control of the console, patch and settings. Programmer allows users to program shows but not to change the patch or settings. Operator prevents any changes to the show file, but the show can still be operated as normal. When in the Operator level the home screen changes to the Execute window.

The access level can be changed in the Settings window. The Admin and Programmer access levels can be password protected, and passwords can be changed in the Settings window. The current access level and the passwords are stored in the show file. The user must enter the current Admin password before they can change a password.

When changing to the Operator user the console will be cleared.

Theatre Mode

QuickQ v2.0 introduces Theatre Mode. This turns Playback 1 into a theatre cue stack, Playback 2 becomes a manual crossfader for the cue stack on Playback 1. In Theatre Mode lowering a Playback to 0% does not automatically release the cue stack. If a light's intensity is at 0% in a cue then it will automatically be moved into position ready for the next cue. New cues recorded while in Theatre Mode will have a default fade time of 3s.

To turn on Theatre Mode click on Settings in the menu then select Theatre Mode.

Default Palettes.

On the QuickQ console setting all the faders to 0 and pressing Clear will return all fixtures to their default positions. The default positions are stored in the first palette in each Attribute window. To change the default values simply record some new values into the first palette, which is labelled as Default.
