DMX Cables vs. Microphone Cables

So, after an all-nighter Friday night with Alex, Tanner, Lance, Paul, Matt, Smooth, and Tim reprogramming all the lights and a half-nighter (new word?) Saturday with Smooth rerunning a ton of cables. The reason for all this work turned out to be related to using microphone cables instead of DMX cables. We would get intermittent strobing on the LED lighting and random movement on the moving head LEDs. Since replacing the cables (and making the run way shorter), we haven’t had a single glitch. Ah, the joys of cables.
