Just in case anyone sees this in the future, I took the gamble and bought an unbranded one from aliexpress.

It arrived with a rattle to it, so in opened it up and a few screws had come loose in transit! Screwed them back in, and it's been fine!

A bit of a learning curve for me, but fixture files downloaded from the avolites website work, and the desk is absolutely fine!

So far it's been used on 3 gigs, and is absolutely spot on for my purposes!

thats the problem, they still fetch over a grand on the usual channels.

i have been waiting on pc wings etc, but again, £1100 for a little hardware thing needing a computer added etc, vs an [albeit cheap] sub £400 pearl'ish, figured it will likely be perfectly adequate.

will have a play and get back to people.



Hi Ginger, just found this thread while looking for reviews of the showtec desks. What's your verdict after a couple of years? Worth it? There also appear to be unbranded versions on aliexpress which are super cheap.

I just need to control 4/8 movers, plus some led pars for some wedding gigs. Getting a 'proper' desk seems like overkill!

Thanks!!

bump... im running Chamsys [live stuff] and Freestyler [dancefloor/dj stuff], using double touchscreens etc etc. However, i really want a hardware interface, cant really get into it when im squinting at screens! Like the idea of the Chamsys wings, but their premium price tag is too much for me to justify. [amazed none of the Chinese folk have made cheap versions of USB lighting hardware yet].

anyhow, these 1024's have come into the sub £500 range cased [used], similar featureset to pearls, under half the price. Are these functional for occasional use/'low level' lighting work? The lack of pixel mapping from Chamsys would be missed but otherwise.... not something anyone i know would dream of owning haha.

Might be stating the obvious, mini-mad, but watch out for the power saving on the lappy closing down your usb ports.

Down with signatures!

If it's the 3 pin £10 cheap one it's time limited, could that be your issue?

Lol.... i think hes calling you James!

What would you know anyway!! Lol

Iv used the chamsys USB jobbie on a laptop and iv had that crap out a few times but im blaming it on an unstable USB port(s)

If it sounds like a gorilla is trying to escape, turn it down.
