Once again, I'm about to make the mistake of waring my heart on my sleeve on an internet message board. I got sick of my modell kirmes some time ago so my fun money has been going to buying new lights for my entertainment center. Previously I only had those really lame "spin & puke" motorized effects on relay packs which I actually used at "real" raves. Now I finally have proper mirror scanners, par cans on a dimmer pack, and a beginner (cheap) DMX board. Here are some .MOV files of my "Jungle Room" from this past Xmas. Blues Chase A smoothed out movement chase w/ blue gobos. For those times when LTJ Bukem comes over to rinse out my wack Radio Shack speakers. Color Chase A smoothed out movement chase w/ chasing colors. This is very simple and basic but its nice for those Happy Hardcore moments. Slowing down the effect wheel makes for a trippy look as well. Dylan Drazen Chase For those times when I'm listening to a Dylan Drazen hard techno mp3 set. This is a typical look that you would find in a club that features hard techno. I first saw a look like this at a Return to the Source, Goa Trance party at the Roseland Ballroom. The one featured there was more simple yet it looked like falling ninja swords from the ceiling, it was beautiful. This version here is more random. Green Fade Chase *Broken link fixed* A smooth chase with dimmer action and green gobos. Its not very exciting, I deleted it soon after I shot this video file. Halo Chase This is based on the same chase, as "Green Fade". When I went over to my neighbors house for Xmas, I showed them these files while taking photos of them. One of the neighbors said this one reminded her of Halo. At the time I had not played the original Halo but now that I have, I can see what she means. It does slightly resemble the Covenant ship in Halo. The hallways in that ship are exactly the same color as this chase. Industrial Chase For those times when I'm listening to Front 242 or.....*gasp* some techstep from No-U-Turn. This chase was really boring for me.... It was beleted soon after. Not only that but when running this chase at the fastest speed, the mirrors loose their home position. Strobe_Chase.mov *broken link fixed* For those Amen Rinse Out times..... Strobe Chase 2 The same as Strobe Chase 1 but from a different angle. I got sick of this set up so I re-arranged all the lights the other day. Now everything is on a 5 ft truss by the window and the MB is the centerpiece on the truss instead of on the ceiling. I can now get a nice "moonflower" style effect by having two scanners really close to the mirror ball. My new 8 Par-38 cans w/ Leviton 4ch DMX dimmer pack are not shown in these video files as I got those in March. When I get a proper job after graduating I'm saving up for HES Studio Spots or Technobeams and a Whole Hog 3 board...... after buying a new car and having a house that is. N-JOI!
