Patch fixtures

Each individual fixture you want to control by zactrack has to be patched into zactrack. All standard channels of each fixture will be patched commonly with a DMX start address and an output universe which the DMX node listens to.
In addition zactrack enables the control of additional zactrack functions per fixture from the console. For more information and download of the fixture type go to zactrack Fixture Types.
These additional zacFixtures will be also patched with a DMX start address and any preferred input universe.

Here is an example:
