If you are using a LONG cable between, make sure you have terminated the far end with a termination resistor. The units should work together.

SOURCE: using 24 chauvet par 56

Read about terminating the chain with a resistor 120 ohms. If your run has appreciable length, a termination MAY be necessary to avoid digital reflections that can corrupt the message between the control and the lights. Having separate power sources CAN subject the units to "ground bounce" that can also corrupt the digital control. You need to power all the units from a single source or conditioner if possible. Another solution might be to use one of the DMX radio links which would isolate the ground problem. Another fix you MIGHT try is to get some of the clamsheel ferrite devices that clamp around the wires. Put these around the digital cables, not the power cords:

SOURCE: I am using 3 Chauvet

1) Make sure to use a DMX terminator. (This is basically a XLR connector with a 120 ohm resistor soldered between pins 2 & 3)

2) Plug the cables in the DMX IN/OUT connectors... not the master slave one.

My sound active mode is not working correctly. it goes at a fast pace even turned all the way down.


If you're sure you're in sound mode then it sounds like yet another faulty chauvet unit. Buy something from a better manufacturer and you've got a chance but in our experience Chauvet are a rule unto themselves and the kit is not worth buying. We have had nothing but trouble with them and no longer buy their kit no matter how tempting the price.

They are not worth trying to fix, if you really like this unit you can get a secondhand one for about 25GBP or find one from a decent manufacturer or even better how about a USB interface to DMX for your PC?

Check if you may need to use a terminating resistor on the DMX chain. Sometimes digital reflections on the cable can cause random behavior.

Search "DMX termination" for explanation.

Also MAKE SURE you set the program mode to 021 (RGB).

It sounds like you might be in one of the automatic modes or sound triggered.

I am assuming that you are imbedding the changes in the midi sound files themselves. They will need to be on a separate track with the correct midi channel assigned at the beginning of the track.
