    Hi All! I'm finally getting started with sequencing, but I've been decorating with old school lights for years. I have about 30k total, 90% are wrapped on trees. Adding more every year. Most are the 100-count incandescent strings, but I've been adding LED when I can get them for cheap after Christmas.

    I've went through the 101 a few times now and browsed the forums for hours. I'm sure I'll have a ton of questions. I always just lurk in forums and never post, but after seeing the community here, I think I'll change that!

    Also, I placed a few orders over the last couple of days for lights, controllers, etc. I can wrap my head around the DC stuff, but I'd like to get my AC lights involved. I know that can be done with a LOR, which is something I looked into a few years ago, but it seems there are other options.

    Merry Christmas all!

    With that many lights already this may be a redundant statement :

    Welcome to ACL !

    Many of us use Pixel controllers which have 1-4 DMX outputs - which are then used to drive (via controllers) the incandescent lights.
