    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!

    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.

    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!

    It's just ok.

    By Steve-Tl0Lp

    from Brookings, Oregon

    Comments about Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller:

    This controller is good for turning on effect lights or chasing with par cans. However, the pars get turned on 100% which can be excessive. I prefer dimmer packs.The relays in the relay packs do click quite loud. I also needed to purchase another cable to connect the second relay pack. The fog control also only works with certain foggers. The strobe control works well, I have 2 Techno Strobes 2000s' hooked up. I also wish that the lights would turn off when there is no music but it doesn't work that way. it's stuck on the last chase pattern when the music stops.I got this for a simple controller to turn on my effect lights and use dimmer packs for my pars that are sound activated.I'll be looking into dmx for my next purchase, as this was a temporary solution.

    Controller Review

    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,

    Very Versatile Controller

    By Uncle Willie

    from Rural Virginia

    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 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...
