Hog 1000 - suggestions to run show on the fly

djnik26djnik26 Registered User
I've been around a Hog3 almost every day for the past 4 years now. I know the ins and outs of it pretty well. I just got a new gig at a venue with a Hog 1000. They have a decent count of fixtures (High End of course :-)) so I really want to have some fun with them. I just want to see if anyone has any suggestions for the best way to run my show on the fly. Do I record the different looks onto the playback masters and stack them on top of each other? Is the palette system as functional as it is on the Hog3? What are some major differences between the two effects engines (do I still have all the same parameters as on the Hog3?)? I've started to read the manual but the screenshots that would answer my questions seem to be few and far between. Thanks a lot for anyone who is able to offer some insight!! :notworthy:

    The biggest difference is that you can't create effects on the 1000,
    you can edit existing effects, but you cannot create your own...
    as the 1000 has a mini effects engine.
    you are best off if you have a computer with you to create the effects you are looking for in Hog PC,
    then you can edit them in the 1000.

    Yes they do have a monitor. Any idea what effects are in the engine already? What parameters can I modify? Just things like size and rate?

    if you hold down set and spin the offset wheel you can get a spread look of a offset between fixtures. I run a hog 500 andi run all my shows live. on each fader i have one fixture group. Like for example on Playback fader 1 i have all spots. I have like 12 cues in that cue list and some of them are effects. That's what i would recommend doing. i don't program in colors or beams.
