Patching MAC Auras?

Hi All,
I am having difficulty patching Mac Auras, it seems there is only one mode available and it is a multi patch fixture. Can someone walk me through it?

    In the fixture library you will see
    Mac Aura
    Mac Aura FX

    You need to patch them both.

    I understand that but how do I assign an address to the FX portion?

    You will need to patch the Mac Aura Standard then the Aura Fx.
    You do not need to address the FX on the fixture, we just break up the protocol into different fixtures to give the user the control they need.

    So an example: (you may need to add more than one fx)
    Unit 1 - Mac Aura Standard: 1
    Unit 1 - Mac Aura FX: 15
    Unit 2 - Mac Aura Standard: 26
    Unit 2 - Mac Aura FX: 40

    So, If I had 50 of these, would I need to patch them one at a time or is there a way to patch the 50 Standards with an offset of 14 and then the 50 FX filling the slots left by the offset?

    There are no offsets in patch. I just put them in order for the patching. Makes it much easier.

    Ex. Fixture A - Std. 101, FX 102, Fixture B - Std. 103, FX 104….this way I can use 101>104@1 enter and it will fill it all in.

    hey guys can any one share the Martin Mac Auras fixture profile for Hog 1000?

    Using jxgriffi's numbers and assuming you're using 6 fixtures

    Set your Aura User numbers to 101>106
    Then set all your Aura FX user numbers to 101.5>106.5 (or any number after the decimal you'd like)

    Then patch 101>106 @ 1

    There is also patch offset/gap now or you use the profile i have linked to in several posts before.

    Or use dotted user numbers, the full number for the "main" fixture and the Aura as x.1
    Then you can patch 1 thru xxx at xxx
    Also later when programming you can always select the whole fixture (main + aura) at the same time
