    Default UK meet a big disapointment

    Yes you heard me right i was really disapointed

    1, JEM you are a F**K**G ...... B****D

    2, Just when i thought i was content and happy with the banthai beast and it had peaked its performance along comes jeremy (JEM) and says to me ..... "would you like to try my pangolin through your projector" with a smug look on his face ....

    well me being quite happy with Mamba and knowing its a nifty bit of software ..... i say yes ....

    so Jem connects his "arty farty" QM2000 to my projector

    now this was where my disapointment starts ..... my projector suddenly stepped up a level .... and created new colours and smoothness that i had never seen before What i have been proud of using for the last few years ( mamba ) just did not do it for me .... it was the end of a relationship .....

    Last night i was in bed at the hotel..... with my mamba interface on the pillow next to me ..... and told her ..... it over ..... me and you are finished

    and that was it .....

    12 hours later ...... i was in a new relationship .....

    she sat with me in the car all the way back from Liecester ... never said a word ...... but i new that she was as sexy as hell and couldnt wait to get her home to give her a good seing to

    heres a picture of her naked

    Congrats!!

    I sympathize with your mental anguish - I gave in a couple of weeks ago and added the QM2000.net version to my roster!!

    it opened my eyes .... just when i thought it couldnt get much better ( apart from thinking of stealing martins Kavant Projector whilst he was in the gents ) it suddenly stepped up a level ....


    And thankyou Mark ( fluff ) whos arm i had to twist to get him to sell it to me ... thanks buddy

    problem is .... now i have to get live pro ...

    it like platform computer game .... just when you complete one level you have to start spending all over again when you start the next level

    all the best ... Karl

    Just out of curiosity, what do you think is the difference between the Mamba and the QM2000 as far as color goes? Does the Mamba do 24 bit color or not?

    Your Beast is analog RGB, Right?

    Resistance is useless...

    You experienced yesterday exactly what I experienced when I first used the QM2000.Net, it really is quite amazing to say the least. What i'm still trying to get to the bottom of though is why the output isn't as bright when running the QM2k. Mark (Fluff) did try to explain it to me and I sort of understood it, but my brain was on another planet yesterday.

    I'm sure you'll be delighted with your new partner Karl, and I wish you many years of happiness together .

    Cheers

    Hi James

    i dont think i can put the difference in words .... or photos

    its just mystical .... everything is so smoother ..... the colours are more pastel and blend like nothing i had seen before, the visual difference is vast ..... now just like audiophiles that say there is a vast difference between direct cut LPs and pressed LPs ( personaly i can not tell the difference ) it may be that as a lover of laser light ... i can see a vast difference ... but im guessing that most of the general public go ooooooohhhh laser and thats it

    Now im not going to put mamba down ( yes my first post was done tongue in cheek ) its a great bit of software and its got good support and ol grumpy has done it wonders and im sure he will carry on and keep improving it ..... i would recommend it to anyone.

    But yesterday ( thanks to Jem ) i was knocked off my feet and i seriously did not expect that there would be that much difference

    I left the meet yesterday .... knowing that to see my laser look as good as it did that afternoon i had to make the move ....
    and i really like Mamba so much it was gonna take a lot to make me move

    The beast is analogue ... and mamba is only 8 bit colour .....

    but with LD2000 its not just the shades .... its the fluidity ( if thats a word ) the natural feeling .... the feathering ....

    IVE SEEN THE LIGHT ...

    sorry james .... got carried away there ....


    all the best .... Karl

    No, that's cool! That's what I was asking.

    It must have to do with the combination of 24 bit color and scan optimizations and critical timing issues.

    I'm just currious because, as you know, I'm in that game too!

    ha! Thats great Karl! Welcome to the light! I've been saying it for 2 years on this forum, if you want the MOST out of your projector, get a QM2K!

    It must have to do with the combination of 24 bit color and scan optimizations and critical timing issues.
    24bit color? I think it's 8bit color, and 6 channels of it! I don't know how Pangolin does it and I don't care to know how they do it, I'm just glad they CAN do it!!!
