Im trying to figure out how to patch Color Blasts to a Road Hog Full Boar via a City Theatrical PDS-375 (6-way Power Supply) for the Color Blasts. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Just patch Generic RGB-LED.

    If you patch 6 RGB_LED units...address them in a row. Set the PSU to the first address and you're done.

    This is the only really sensible way to manage all the individual "cells" within the fixture. You have to do a little work up front to save you loads of programming time later.

    If you don't want individual control, then patch a single RGBA and put your fixture in the appropriate mode.
    Another option (if you can't change the mode on the unit) is to patch a single RGBA fixture to all the DMX start points of the individual cells.

    Hope this helps. :)

    Plus they are very fast to patch when you patch them as a range.

    ie.
    1 thru 12 @1
    Will patch fixtures 1-12 starting at address 1.
    Fixture 1 = DMX 1
    Fixture 2 = DMX 4
    Fixture 3 = DMX 7
    Fixture 4 = DMX 10
    and so on

    I have patched entire universes that way.
    Including different fixture types
    101-110 VL3000
    201-212 VL2500

    101 thru 212 @ 1 will patch them all in sequential order starting at DMX 1
