    Default New Member from Troutman

    I have been playing with the LOR software for about 8 years not but I never had the opportunity to actually order some hardware until 3 years ago. My Friend introduced me to his neighbor who had 4 controllers and owned a private Zoo and was planning a drive through light show. I set up 4 songs for him the first year which was not without any issues we had one controller go up in smoke 3 days before opening and LOR was able to get us a new box the day before. That summer I tore into the box and replaced the transformer and patched some of the leads on the board.

    The Second year we went with 5 controllers with 7 songs and this year I built 4 new controllers from the DIY kits from LOR with 7 songs with an additional 3 songs just for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We plan to add 4 more controllers next year to the building. The building is 300 feet long so I got lots of room to do things.

    Great Scott! Another Scott!

    Welcome to the forums here; you are obviously not a newbie to the addiction.

    300 foot long building, huh? Sounds like a great place to have a mini or even just a regional get-together.

    Pictures? Videos?

    Yea! Another Scott! This won't be confusing at all! LOL

    You've got lots of company in that area of the state. Several displays within an hour of your area. My parents live off exit 36 on 77, too, so we're up that way a few times a year, as well.

    Welcome to the addiction!
