MASTER DIMMER is the lever on the right side of the control board, directly under the red button and above the track ball. This acts as a dimmer for ALL the lighting, except the COLORBLAST LEDs #37

 HOW TO SELECT and ADJUST THE LIGHTS:

TOUCH SCREEN + Wheels Directly Below the Touch Screen:

# 1  TOUCH SCREEN

This is where you will touch/select the light(s) you wish to activate (red light = currently active)
and deactivate (green light means light was active during this session but is NOT currently active.
That light may be lit but you can NOT change it unless it is RED).

#1 touch the light(s) you wish to activate. You can scroll up / down as there are lights 1 thru 45.

#2 Light(s) showing RED are active and can be changed.

#3 Once your lights(s) are selected (red showing) then select the “Intensity” button (active = intensity is red)


# 2  WHEELS

#1 Once light(s) are selected (see above) and the “intensity” button is active (red light is on)

#2 Roll the wheel UP = ON or DOWN = OFF. The Max UP = 255 and the Minimum = 0 = OFF

#3 Get in the habit of selecting “Unselect All”, found at the top of the touch screen, after you change a light,
because if you don’t then when you select your next light to change the previous one will still be on
and you will also change that light too. Change a light. “Unselect all” Change another light. “Unselect all”.
