Auto release on shutdown

RScottRScott Registered User
Does anybody know if there's a way to get the Whole Hog III to automatically release all cues on shutdown? When you shut down the board, at least on our system, all the lights stay up with whatever values they had from the last used cue. They will stay on until we restart the system, which is just kind of a pain sometimes. I know it's possible to program in a startup macro - is there an option for a shutdown macro as well?

    I dont know of a shutdown macro but I always hit pig+release before shutting down to ensure all of my cuelists are released.

    Yeah, we know about Pig+Release, but all of us (especially our lesser-trained volunteers) often forget to release the cue(s). I'm just trying to see if there's a way to get the console to do it once the system is given the quit command.

    What dimmer racks are you using. I know that ETC Sensor racks have a DMX loss fade time that you can set to a specified time to fade the lights after the racks loose signal.
