Got the Obey 4 with the Chauvet mini color strip fx unit. The Obey 4 is a 4 fixture, 4 channel per fixture DMX unit, but you can use it with a single fixture in up to a 16 channel mode or dual fixtures in up to 8 channels each by selecting a different "fixture" for the different channels. It's a bit awkward to use the unit this way - but its nice to have this flexibility with the unit. I got the unit a day early (thanks MF!), and so I was able to play with it prior to the award dinner/dance event where I DJ'd. This is not the first DMX unit I've used, but it is the first one I have owned. For small relatively simple events of less than 150 people (my application) the unit is/was fun to use and was intuitive to me. I used all of the features on the controller for various purposes during the evening - all worked flawlessly. The sound sensitivity definately had a "sweet spot" for effective operation, but this was probably more of a function of the lighting unit rather than the controller since the Obey 4 does not appear to have a built in microphone. The unit comes with a quick start manual that is very minimal. The online manual is better, but some of the descriptions could have been better worded to convey the actual operation of the unit. Great unit if you have to train someone in 5 minutes on how to use it for a basic light controller. Solid construction, but wish that it had come with a standard wall cord with a built in power supply versus the wall wart - but it is a small wall wart.

Why not build it out to fit in a normal rack space? At 12 inches across it's more than a half rack space but is not long enough to fit in the normal rack space. It's good if you want to run some simple uplighting, thats about it.

      Comments about CHAUVET DJ Obey 4 DMX Controller:

      I'm not one for Chauvet products but this is a nice controller. I was looking for something to control my new uplighting package and the Obey 4 has it covered! It has a bit of a learning curve to figure out all it can do but worth the effort in the end. The buttons have a nice 'click' to them and it's well made overall. Lots of bang for the buck! Get one!!!

        OBEY 4 does pretty well

        Comments about CHAUVET DJ Obey 4 DMX Controller:

        I have 6 LED cans that I needed to control, after buying the OBEY 4, I realized the each of the cans uses potentially 6 DMX channels. My plans are to run to zones of lights, so this did work out pretty good since there are 4 zones available, each of my two zones taking up 2 zones. I do still find areas where the lights go squirly a bit and I have to reset the controller but for the most part, setting my cans to ID 1 and ID 3 and controlling them from the OBEY on Fixture 1 and 3 works fine. If I am missing something here, someone let me know!
