I bought my first one more than 3 years ago and I'm getting ready to order another one. NOT as a replacement because the first one is still doing fine, but for a second show.
This model includes both a chase feature AND an audio feature which follows the beat of the music which makes it very adaptible in different settings. Given the channels are split you can even have half of your lights chase while the other half flash away to the beat. On top of that, add the remote fog machine and strobe light controls (and yes, for best results, stick with Chavaut items so the play well with each other)!
I've used this unit almost every weekend for over 3 years now without fail. It has only recently developed a problem with channel 2 inside the controller itself. I haven't had a chance to look at it yet, but I'm certain it will be a minor repair.
For this price where else can you get this much bang for your buck?

The controller arrived ASAP however at a glance there were loose parts and a control knob is missing (just the knob). I am not going to risk additional damage to the unit by plugging it in to 120 VAC. I prefer to return the unit for a credit thus apply the amount tendered on the price of an OBEY series DMX controller. I am a designer thus it is my obligation to insure the best interests of my client and I could not in good conscience pass this unit off on someone in good conscience.Fortunately MF is an established company with a large inventory from which , lesson learned, I will select an upgrade with which to stake my reputation lest to do otherwise I will be the first in line to hang for it!

Ehh...

By Joelio12

Comments about Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller:

Not a bad controller but lacking certain features. No sensitivity settings or line input for chase mode, fog and strobe features require seperate power components, and a dimming feature would be cool.. but hey, you get what you pay for. I've used it for a few live shows and it had gotten a good response... fun stuff :)

Chase Speed is 1 minute to 13 minutes

By DJ K

from New Mexico

See all my reviews

Comments about Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller:

The chase speed is NOT 20 seconds to 15 minutes. The users guide says: "Adjust the ?timer speed dials? for each band to adjust chases speed from1-13 minutes."My experience with this product confirms the user's manual 1-13 minutes. The sound activated chase worked fine though, which is what I wanted, but 20 seconds is a big difference from 1 minute.The quality isn't that good as one light would stay on all of the time.

Not happy with Control

By On Stage Band Lead Singer

from Macomb IL

Comments about Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller:

I purchased it and it would not chase and would not fade out black, There is NO instructions on how to use this product or setup. I will return for something else that is more usefull. I run a live band and I need my hands free to play guitar. This is not for bands as it seems to take hands on and we can not do that.

Good One

By Dj Sergio PR

from Manatí, P.R.

Comments about Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller:

It is a nice contoller and before I owned, I used it a lot of times. It works great and have good features. The only thing is that when I bought mine and recieved it, the Power Input was broke or something because it doesn't make contact with the cable. Because of that, I obviously send it back. Now, I'm waiting for the new one... but it's really a nice product.

Very Versatile Controller

By Uncle Willie

from Cross Junction, VA

See all my reviews

Comments about Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller:

Allows manual, timed and sound selection of lights. Sound activated produces random combinations of four lights (not sequential) for added interest. Timed steps thru lights every couple of minutes so you don't forget to. Has two banks of four switches - I use one timed and one sound activated. Switch one or two out of the sequence for added interest. Be careful to not overload the house circuit breakers with too many "on" lights.

not bad for the money

Comments about Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller:

if you are looking for something to start out with to control your lights then this is great. just a basic controller to chase and control your lights without you doing it yourself. if you have quite a few lights and want to have a better effect with the controller then get another relay pack to go with it.

Not a very good controller

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller:

I bought this controller a little over a year ago and it went kapoot at our last gig/show. Not very happy with it. It does make a loud clicking noise when it chases. Kinda irritating...I thought this was a good controller at the time and I could live with the loud clicking, but now that it doesn't work I have 2 options: buy the same controller, or upgrade to a better controller, but then you have to get dmx cables, new relay packs. If I get a better controller, the relay packs for my chauvet are totally worthless because they require the 9-pin cable. Be aware of this if you decide to buy this controller...

I use it for a live band

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller:

Too the reviewer that was concerned with the clicking. That is a relay opening and closing. That means its working. Overall good product. I do not have time or need for fancy dmx stuff. This is easy. We have our snd man do a few things to accentuate a few songs and the rest of the time leave it on "static". If you want the best pay for it.

Good Unit with Limitations

By tolson86

from Cedar Rapids, IA

See all my reviews

Comments about Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller:

There are a couple reasons why I will not be using this controller on my other systems. First, when the unit flicks the individual lights on and off, there is a pretty loud clicking sound. Second, the sound-activated chasing is way too fast (like strobe fast). Besides these two issues, you get a lot for the money.

I bought it because it had a good review.

By rintaro mori

from New England

Comments about Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller:

I own some chauvet hopefully this is the only one that is in this quality
I got to admit I looked at the review and wanted to get this controller. The first unit I had was in good cosmetic form. I like the sound mode but the relay mode wasn't working so I send it back for replacement. The next one I got had a broken knob. I was thinking "what the heck, it seems safe and no one is going to see it" but again the relay/chase doesnt work. I sent it back again hoping third time was a charm. EVen worse condition, I'd blame it to UPS because there was a whole on both the original box and the double box... still the relay mode doesn't work. I gave it a try. I returned it and got an elation t4 instead.
the knobs gets breaks easily
if you want something that just work on sound mode, there are other product available that is cheaper.

Chauvet Light System

By Disc Jockey

from Fort Worth, TX

Comments about Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller:

This product is easy to use, but the switches malfunction. With 2 controllers linked, you have the capability of 16 lights beating to the music. I currently can only use 12 of the switches because of malfunctions, and I have only used the system 6 times. I am a DJ and I would not buy this product again.

Comments about Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller:

This is the best controller for the money hands down . This product is compact, and allows you to control many diffrent lights, or a lot of the same, based on your needs.If you have a small budget, buy this one, I now own three, for diffrent purpose in my show, one for spots, the balance for other lights that need to run on my command, onb on auto pilot,

Comments about Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller:

I bought two Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controllers and a Hurricane 900 Fog Machine, connected them together (with a Live Wire Mid-320 Midi cable sold separately) for remote fog connection right on the controller, a couple of Chauvet Vue 4.1 lights, and some par cans for an excellent mobile DJ light show. Cost effective, simple to use, looks and works really great. Turn your Lighting effects on & off, plus it will chase as an added feature. I?m very pleased, you will be too!

Very Low Quality

By Mo J.

from Detroit, MI

Comments about Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller:

I'm using the product for a mobile performance art project that involves many simple bulbs that flash in a series, a fairly simple operation. I was amazed when the this controller arrived in the mail. The knobs were very loose and the chase mechanism didn't work at all. Instead, lights would flicker at random and whenever the unit was jostled even slightly, lights would go crazy. The strobe input jack was pushed inside the unit and some of the cheap plastic fasteners used to attach the circuit boards to the case were also cracked off inside the unit, shaking around. The overall construction is atrocious. There's no way this unit could even stand up to the rigors of my project, which I'm sure is nowhere near the abuse it would take if used by an actual gigging DJ/musician.
