Workflow calman+controlcal+Lumagen XD

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Well have Pioneer elite 151, just got lumagen xd (couldn't turn down price). I have calman and unlocked isf n/d/a. EF-1000 just acquired. Now, will probably get Calman.

Is following workflow for radiance in calman all i would need to do? How do i connect both Radiance and controlcal since would both need usb->rs232.

Workflow in my mind is a little jumbled. Any help appreciated (you out there Turbe?)

Hi,

I would calibrate the display first.. Then, you could adjust the Radiance using whatever workflow you want/need. My personal feeling is that the Radiance is overkill for the 151.. though I have a Duo in my loop with my 141, I only use it for my FP and have it pass through for the Pioneer. Since you have the radiance, might as well take advantage of it for experience.. I doubt you will see the difference (assuming you nail the 151FD to begin with).

Turbe, thanks for quick reply. I was thinking lumagen was a little much but I have an electronic "spur of the moment" purchase issue. I will probably use Radiance for pattern generator and do TV first. Any thought on this if radiance and controlcal use rs232? (need to buy another cable/usb key i'm assuming to use both at same time).

You can use two USB-to-serial adapters. That is what I do, I have two of the radio shack gigaware brand adapters.

I use the OEM version of this dual adapter myself, I did have a OEM version available at a pretty good price for my Users but sold out quickly.

It has a metal housing, FTDI chipset and allows you to visually monitor each port for both send and receive (IMO, something you want in a dual port). The USB cable is not attached, another bonus IMO.

Thanks for teasing us! That thing is awesome.

Do you not need one of the add-ons for the Radiance workflow to be of use? I'm thinking Interactive ($99) at least, maybe even Autocal ($199).
