I’ve been keeping an eye out for new lights for a while now. I loved the idea of the ADJ hexapar but did wonder whether the UV part of the light would get used much.
These on the other hand just have four elements on the chip – Red, Green, Blue and Amber. Amber is a great addition because it just lifts the other colours and stops them looking over saturated thus giving a more retro “Par Can” feel rather than the very intense LED colours you normally from these setups.
Unlike the cheap four head unit I bought which focuses the colours in different places and gives some strange shadowing effects on the wall behind.
I think these will be great mounted on the front trusses in place of the aging Cabaret Colour 3’s we have on there now.
I’ve set the DMX to 1-8, 9-16, 17-24 and 25-31 which means that the trusses are mirrored so modifying fixture 1 and 2 puts all four lights into a single rake of faders and the lights are mirrored so the trusses run 1 – 2 – 4 – 3 which means the inner lights are paired and the outer lights are paired.
It works for me!
