Summary of Main Features
The Creation II – 4096 controls up to 2048 channels over DMX or 8 ArtNet universes. The console comes equipped with a comprehensive fixture library and a powerful fixture setup wizard, which makes fixture configuration simple and efficient. The integrated library editor allows you to add new fixtures or update existing ones at any time – even during the show.
The Creation II – 4096 also supports on the fly replacement of complete fixture types, which is particularly handy when an already programmed fixture of one brand needs to be replaced by another. All updates and backups are done simply via the in-built USB ports.
As for the hardware, the Creation II – 4096 is based on a fanless industrial single board computer, which runs from a solid state disk. Together with the auto sensing fanless power supply, we eliminated any mechanical parts inside the console, greatly increasing the robustness and reliability of the hardware. In combination with our embedded Linux operating system, which has a boot time of 42 seconds, the console delivers maximum stability and reliability.
The combination of the comprehensive feature set, the compact hardware design and a sensible market based price, make the Creation II – 4096 an excellent choice for all shows and venues with up to 320 lighting fixtures, with a maximum of 2048 DMX channels or 8 ArtNet universes.
The Creation II – 4096 features advanced functionality in a number of areas for such a small and compact console. One of these is the multi-functional button panel which gives full flexibility without needing to invest in additional hardware.
4 panels are included in the standard desk configuration with each of these panels having 16 memory buttons, along with a graphical status display. Using the control section, you can reconfigure the behavior of each of the 4 button panels at any time. You can individually choose options such as fixture and group selection, playback of cue-lists, effects activation, preset recall or even macro playback, among others. This easy and fast re-configuration makes it possible to quickly adapt the consoles‘ user interface to any demands during the show. It doesn’t matter whether you enjoy having dozens of extra buttons for programming or if you prefer having up to 64 additional cue-lists at your fingertips when it comes to showtime – any configuration can be achieved within seconds.
The desks‘ control faders are also configurable by the user to match their preferred setup. Whether it be intensity sub-masters for fixture groups, effect or cue-list controls, or even master speed timing control, the choice is yours.
Presets now have the functionality of much more than just fixture parameters, such as colors and positions. The Creation II – 4096 allows you to create effect presets or timing presets – timing can be stored with other parameters, or as a separate entity to be applied to any transition. As you would expect all cues referencing these presets are updated when you make any changes, no matter what information they are storing.
