A new version of software for the Mantra Lite console has been released.

The main changes are as follows:

New Features:

  1. Wings are now supported. One or Two wings can be connected to the Mantra Lite to increase the number of fixtures, playbacks and DMX universes avialable.
  2. Shapes. The shape generator allows easy creation of Circles, Fig8, BallyHoos and other FX’s on the Pan & Tilt of any moving light.
  3. Unpatched fixtures are no longer shown on the rig view display.
  4. It is now possible to record a blank cue in a cuelist. This is commonly required at the start and end of a cuelist, to enable a blackout.
  5. The pop-up keyboard now has a larger font that is easier to read.

Bug Fixes:

  1. Recording a memory left a blank entry in the Undo list
  2. An Auto-saved would fail to load at power on if the console was powered off immediately after changing the show name with the Save-As function. The show was safely stored on the disc drive, but had to be manually reloaded.
  3. The first time you selected a cue in the cue edit window it sometimes selected multiple cues.
  4. Show import failed if the show already existed in the console.
  5. If a new show was loaded or one was imported and no changes are made to it, the console did not remember this if power was turned off too quickly (less than one minute).
  6. It was possible to crash the Mantra if you were adjusting a Slider in the Other app when the yellow fader for that fixture was set to zero (de-selecting the fixture).
  7. Numerous precautionary measures are now in place to prevent possible crashes when editing cues that are live on stage.
  8. Selecting multiple cues in the cue edit window and editing the name would crash the console.
  9. In rare circumstances it was possible for a screen to become misaligned, so that parts of two different screens were showing (eg. Rig and App screens).
  10. Duplicate cue copied any live information (cues and fixtures on the stage) as well as the cue in the cue list.

Known Issues:

  1. If a cue inside a chase contains an Animation, and the previous or next cue has the same light at 100%, then the light will momentarily flash to full at the start/end of the fade.
  2. Some language buttons are greyed out – these languages will be added soon.
  3. Issues may be experienced with USB keyboards where the keyboard loses focus when
    the Caps Lock on the USB keyboard is tapped.
  4. Cues with zero intensity do not play back correctly, making Move-In-Black impossible.
