The LCS2 (or L2 as we like to call it) was created FOR church techs BY church techs. Inspired by the needs of our own church, other local churches, and a general lack of capabilities in other products. For years we used free software and several MIDI control panels to try and create an environment that was flexible and volunteer friendly. Windows updates, USB devices, too much desk space, and no way to easily adjust a moving head position, all added to the frustration.
The L2 is the perfect blend of manual and automatic control creating a volunteer friendly atmosphere. Many churches pre-program their lighting cues in advance, then leave a volunteer to press the button. That is fine if you have the time and staff for pre-programming. However, at smaller churches (like ours) there is no time to pre-program cues, and you never know where the musicians will stand until Sunday morning rehearsal.
We created the L2 to EASILY re-aim, adjust, and manually control moving heads on-the-fly without a computer and mouse. Most consoles and computer software require you to be in "Program" or "Run" mode for cue playback, with this approach you cannot edit presets once you are up and running. That just doesn't work in the unpredictable world of live worship services. Pastors can change their path at any time, and who knows where your guest speaker will go. You need a console that can operate modern complex moving head lights, but will also allow you to adjust settings quickly while running live.
Backlit keyboard keys and illuminated soft-touch keys below each fader. Fader soft keys allow you to switch between scene and edit mode directly. To edit fixture parameters, simply press the soft key for the desired fixture, the motorized fader bank will change to fixture edit mode with each fixture channel function displayed on individual OLED displays.
Compact design with full direct access to most functions without needing to dive into menus. Large keyboard means quick entry or navigation to any screen without using the touch screen. Of course, you can also use the touch screens!
Designed to fit in the typical tech booth, the LCS2 is only 27" wide and 21" deep. Don't let that small size fool you, the LCS2 is packed with power to run your large Easter or Christmas productions as well as Sunday services.
The back panel includes rigid panel mount XLR connectors for DMX output and Ethercon style ArtNET network jacks. MIDI Input and Output on standard 5-pin DIN jacks. SMPTE LTC Input and Output use transformer balanced XLR connectors ensuring no ground noise between lighting and sound systems. Audio Output is by standard balanced XLR connectors for playing sound effects, narration, intro slates, or even intermission announcements.
Custom hand-crafted wood side and front panels are available in several colors and finishes. Match the look of your sanctuary, and add a touch of elegance to your booth.
