I recently bought and brought beam to do a show. It worked perfectly fine when I was creating the shows. I created a timecoded set and a project where I would trigger lights from session view.
When I pulled up to my gig, to my horror all my lights did not work. I tried loading both shows and nothing was sending to beam. I used the command+3 view to see if any signal was being sent and nothing was sending.
I restarted Beam, reloaded my projects, restarted ableton, and my MacBook multiple times.
I resorted to just turning the lights to sound active and spent the entire gig trying to get my projects to trigger. I noticed if I started a completely new project and loaded instruments and started hitting midi notes I started seeing signal, but right when I saved and tried reloading the show, nothing was being sent.
Am I missing something? This was a major bummer I spent weeks preparing lights for this show only to have to revert to sound active lights and sitting there regretting my beam purchase.
The weeks leading up to this I had no problem opening projects and getting it working.
I did not update my OS or Beam within this time.
