To get started with the *spark d-fuser, please watch the ‘getting started’ video to the right – it’s best seeing these things in action. It's also your reference for how things should work, so if you're having problems go back to this video and see where things go differently for you.
This document gives some more detail and explains the troubleshooting options if things aren’t working as expected. Download this and keep it around.
The controller's RJ45 socket allows the *spark d-fuser to communicate with other equipment you have on stage or as part of the venue. But how? This more advanced video shows using the mixer in a vj setup, and finishes with this kind of stage integration: using a network cable to connect the controller to a laptop and get audio fades slaved to the video crossfader.
If you wish to use the OSC network mode of the *spark d-fuser, this document will show you how.
The *spark d-fuser is designed to be customised. For example, if you want to alter the list of resolutions in the controller menu, this can be done by simply editing a list of resolutions in a configuration text file. This document illustrates the process of editing the ‘ini’ configuration file.
To customise the *spark d-fuser controller, you need to access the firmware and support files on the controller’s internal USB drive. This document illustrates the process of opening the controller to access this drive.
The firmware that runs the controller can be updated. The current production version is v25. You can download the latest update and installation instructions here.
