Heads down on halloween

Not going to be posting much here. heads down on halloween. struggling last night with interfacing pneumatic valves to my dmx control system. tried a gilderfluke part to convert dmx input to analog output but it seems quite finicky about dmx input. Looking at maybe using a Dove Systems MTX-DE8 8 Channel DMX to Analog Decoder which is maybe where I should have started in the first place, since I have a lot of Dove dimmers and they have been rock solid for me. The good folks at PNTA are helping me sort it all out — great folks for gear here in town.
