    Amazing, thanks!

    Hey jdavisrader, Any way you could provide the vixen files (.vix) for the songs you did?

    Ah, yep, there it is! Thanks!So I'm considering modifying this a bit to work with the star. Did you follow any kind of tutorial to write this converter script? Very awesome work, thanks for all this! People have been talking about making the sequencing easier in these comments, this is just what is needed.

    Awesome work jdavisrader! I just downloaded everything you shared and plan on playing with it tonight. Thanks so much for contributing!

    Question for you jdavisrader,In your Sequencing Songs.pdf directions, you have a step that says:'Open the converter, (I’ve found that chrome works best) and click on the “Choose Files” button'Can you elaborate on this a bit more. What exactly is "the converter"? I don't see any button that says converter and I don't see anything menu options for a converter in Vixen.

    Just tried your Wizards sequence out and it was great! Nice work. I didn't have an issue with the timing.

    Some of the terminals will have multiple wires under the screw. I'm not an electrician though so consult one if you're not comfortable.

    Did you purchase the relay suggested here? There is no limitation as far as I am aware. I've definitely had all 8 channels of the relay on at once. Perhaps you got a faulty one?

    I've recently gone through this whole process (within the last few months). What exactly are you having issues with? Pretty much all you need as far as software is the OS and pygame, both of which are redily available.

    You load and play the file by calling xmas.py. It would look something like: python xmas.py test.txt test.mp3
