    Hi Everyone,
    I m new to ACL but not new to the CLAP. I have run a show for about 5 years in Virginia. First in the Richmond area and for the last 2 year just south of DC. I started with a 16 channel LOR and last year graduated to Renard and a sndevice e682 running 6 snowflake pixels. I also started doing Halloween last year with an RGB singing pumpkin.
    This year I am adding a pixel mega tree (8 foot with 600 pixels) and my neighbor across the street. Its been a lot of fun figuring our the wireless communications between my house and theirs. My wife is hard at work sequencing and I am building props. I never thought of Christmas lights as a year round hobby until this year!

    Any way I am glad to be here and can't wait to share experiences with everyone!

    John

    It's nice that your wife has CLAP also. :)
    Even with some of the links a little dated, if you haven't found it yet, the AusChristmasLighting 101 manual is a great resource or quick reference guide.

    Welcome to ACL!! This is such a great forum. I live in Richmond and have done animated shows for the past 2 years. Last year I made it on the Tacky Light Tour with 50,000 lights. I would have liked to see your display while you were still in the area. Do you have any videos?
