Detailed Features

Theatrelight Cuemaster Scene Faders

Using the memory page overlay system you can change between any of the ten pages of Scenemasters. In each Scenemaster you can record a manual scene, a fade scene, a chase or an entire show, each coded in a different colour on the status LED above each Scenemaster fader.


You can operate the Cuemaster as a two preset manual console using the park facility. You can also set the scene or channel flash keys to latch mode which transforms the flash keys into on/off switches.

Theatrelight Cuemaster Edit Functions

The Edit Functions allow you to quickly and easily edit scenes, chases or show cues. The Compare function compares the newly edited scene with the original scene. You can modify, delete or insert cues into a chase or a show and stack scenes or chases to create a show that can be operated by a single button.

Theatrelight Cuemaster Grand Master Fader


The Grand Master fader (left) controls the entire output of the console. The D.B.O. key allows for dead blackouts. This key also controls the disable and enable of the flash keys to allow safer operation.



You can set different fade times on cues of a show as well as for fade-scenes, allowing for two separate fade times simultaneously. Any chase speed can be set by tapping a key to the tempo of live music and you can playback each chase with its own independent chase speed.
