I have a 2 ADJ Accuspots, 2 ADJ Deluxe scans and 4 ADJ LED punch pros

I mainly use sound 2 light 95% of my events. Up until last year I just used the internal sound programs in the lights which is no different to the crowd than using sound 2 light on the software. My main reason for software control is to override with cool stuff like i have a program that slowly does the fluid moving figure 8's around the room while the LEDS fade between colors for slow songs and such.

Other things I want to do is to have functions that override the sound 2 light. For example, I want to be able to click a button and immediately get bright white light from the led punch pros for crowd lighting. The problem is right now I need to shut off sound to light then click my cue for those type of functions which is too many steps for something that I would want to be able to do on a seconds notice. There has got to be something I'm missing.

Thanks for the help in advance!

You could set that scene "bright white light from the led punch pros" as the favorite (star icon at the top). Clicking that should interrupt whatever cue you're using at the time and put your favorite into effect. Click again to go back the the current cue. Or even better you could use the programmable override buttons.

Or why not have a cue that just does that one scene? Keyboard shortcuts can be assigned to cue buttons making it easy to turn off cue #1 and turn on cue #X immediately. That's what I've been doing to eliminate a dark space between cues and also kill any extraneous dmx data from one cue to the next.

Sound to light is also only effective when the speaker icon is enabled for each sequence in the cue. Hope this is making sense.
