    Question music between shows

    Ok, I give up....How do I get music to play in the dead spots between shows? I thought I seen a forum/article/faq somewhere weeks ago, but I cannot find it now. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated....

    I'm gonna hanker a guess and say that you put one in as a "sequence" with minimal light changes in it or just have some stay on the entire song (or two) and then have your sequence start after that (or vice versa...). I'll let others correct me since I might be wrong...

    How long is your show?

    How much time is between your shows?

    Any reason you need to have set show times instead of running continous?

    Couple of ways depending on the answers to the above questions:

    1 You could use Zara radio

    2 Set up some music only sequences that do not control lights in your show schedule

    Possibly other ideas or suggestions if we knew more about your show or schedule.

    Thanks, as I was waiting for the sleep fairy to get to me last night, I came up with sequencing songs with no or small light movements.....
    I changed my shows to start every 15 minutes until I get all songs designed. Not much open time this way. I'll check into Zara, I've seen that is some threads but made the assumption it was a type of transmitter.

    During my first year I got a very good tip - - to make sure I have at least one song with ALL lights on. And I discovered that having one full song with no sequencing served to clear people out so the next group of cars could get up closer. I did not expect that added benefit. It's also a good time for people to see your full house display. I also added some minimal sequencing but just some very slow fades .... mostly keeping everything on. Also be sure to put in your Christmas Carolina promo .. That will send people to our site to find more displays ...
    Thanks,
