ColorSource Presets cannot be recorded when the fixture is in Direct or 1-Channel Mode


I want to re-record Presets on my ColorSource fixture, but the changes are not sticking - it continues to play back the Factory-default Presets

Description/Explanation of Issue

According to the Installation Guide, "When the fixture is in Direct mode or 1-channel mode, you cannot re-record presets."


  1. Verify the mode that your fixture is in.
  2. Change the mode to 5ch (5 Channel) or rgb (RGB).
  3. Re-record the preset and verify it is playing back properly
  4. Return your fixture to its original mode.
