Hippotizer V 2

Couple of questions about patching a Green Hippo Version 2 Dual mode on a Hog3.



First, I can’t seem to find a profile for simple (or preset) mode, which is fine. I’d like to use it in Full mode anyways. So here’s the question.

In patching, we have Hippo Master and Hippo Layers. If I’m running the Hippo in Dual mode, how do I patch this? Would it be:

Hippo Master 1 = Output 1 Master @ DMX 1
Hippo Layer 1 = Output 1 Layer 1 @ next free DMX
Hippo Layer 2 = Output 1 Layer 2 @ next free DMX
Hippo Layer 3 = Output 1 Layer 3 @ next free DMX
Hippo Layer 4 = Output 1 Layer 4 @ next free DMX
Hippo Master 2 = Output 2 Master @ DMX 1
Hippo Layer 1 = Output 2 Layer 1 @ next free DMX
Hippo Layer 2 = Output 2 Layer 2 @ next free DMX
Hippo Layer 3 = Output 2 Layer 3 @ next free DMX
Hippo Layer 4 = Output 2 Layer 4 @ next free DMX

Or would it be something different? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank ya.

Brian

    Ahem, I messed up with some copy pasting.

    What I meant was:

    Hippo Master 1 = Output 1 Master @ DMX 1
    Hippo Layer 1 = Output 1 Layer 1 @ next free DMX
    Hippo Layer 2 = Output 1 Layer 2 @ next free DMX
    Hippo Layer 3 = Output 1 Layer 3 @ next free DMX
    Hippo Layer 4 = Output 1 Layer 4 @ next free DMX
    Hippo Master 2 = Output 2 Master @ next free DMX
    Hippo Layer 1 = Output 2 Layer 1 @ next free DMX
    Hippo Layer 2 = Output 2 Layer 2 @ next free DMX
    Hippo Layer 3 = Output 2 Layer 3 @ next free DMX
    Hippo Layer 4 = Output 2 Layer 4 @ next free DMX

    Or do the masters go back to back? Or at the end? Or some combination therein...

    Master, 4 layers, Master, 4 layers is the correct way. The reason is that Dual mode was designed to be equal with 2xExpress Hippos
