First Impressions - Twelve Drummers

Even at first sight it looked like another large project, somewhat similar to “The 11 Pipers” but with more lighting elements to control, and luckily without any music requiring synchronising to the lighting animation.

The “11 Pipers” had 22 active lighting elements but this one, “The Twelve Drummers” would have 51 (picture 2), so in hardware terms this would require a much larger control unit.
