Custom Sequencing


Custom sequencing allows you to configure your house/venue with any layout and add any songs to your holiday line up. A Luminous Harmony custom show will be 100% tailored to your specific layout, making your show one of a kind. We’ll work with you to bring your vision to life, or if you don't know any more than that you want lights programmed to music, let our years of experience take the reins and create a custom show that is truly unique.

Due to high demand for the Christmas season, we highly recommend you contact us for custom sequencing before the end of August if all of your channel configuration files are completed, or earlier if they are not. Clients are accepted first come-first serve basis. Fill out our Custom Sequencing Quote Request Form soon to start the process of adding your project to our schedule!

Our pricing and discount structure for residential displays is listed below. Please contact us for more information about pricing and discount date ranges if you are working with a drive thru or other commercial entity.

Residential Pricing

Custom Regular (AC) Channel Pricing

Our prices are calculated based on the number of channels in your display, the seconds of audio being programmed, and how many days in advance the order is placed relative to the delivery date.

Prices for singing faces vary based on complexity of the song; please contact us for a specific quote. Additional fees may apply for one show ordered less than 10 days from the requested delivery date or for more than 12 minutes worth of shows ordered less than 30 days from the requested delivery date (if sequencing space is still available).

Number of AC Channels Price/Second (121+ Days) Price/Second (60-120 Days) Price/Second (Regular Price)
1-32 $2.06 (25% off) $2.34 (15% off) $2.75
33-64 $2.36 (25% off) $2.68 (15% off) $3.15

Custom Smart RGB (Pixel) Pricing

If you have RGB elements in your display, no problem! We can add them into a sequence that already has regular AC channels, or create a show of entirely RGB. Our RGB pricing varies depending on how your lights are organized (in multi or single strand props), if your display is solely RGB or also has AC lights, and what type of RGB lights are in your display (smart or dumb). Discounted rates for orders placed earlier in the season are offered in the same structure as programming for regular channels; please contact us for a quote.

Additional fees may apply for one show ordered less than 10 days from the requested delivery date or for more than 12 minutes worth of shows ordered less than 30 days from the requested delivery date (if sequencing space is still available).

Example Custom Sequencing Pricing

In this example, your song is two minutes long. This would be 120 seconds of audio. Your display contains 64 regular channels. (This is equal to four Light-O-Rama Pro/Residential controllers.) You have also reached out to us for a quote regarding your RGB Mega Tree, which has been assessed at an additional $0.90 per second for programming since there are AC channels in your display. You ordered your show on July 20 (within the 25% off range) and requested that your show be delivered by November 20 (in time for a Black Friday weekend premiere).

64 Regular Channels $2.36 x 120 seconds $283.20
Smart RGB Pixels $0.90 x 120 seconds $108.00
Total $391.20

Quality Assurance

At Luminous Harmony, we believe in the motto “you get what you pay for.” Backed by 17 years of music experience, we take the time to program all of our Custom and Create Your Own Harmony sequences to the actual rhythms of each instrument and vocal line rather than delivering a show composed of simple repeated chase and flickering on/off commands. Due to the time and effort we put into each of our sequences, we encourage you to contact us well before your premiere date in order to secure a spot with us for the season (and to recieve the best discounts)! An example of the high quality code in each Luminous Harmony sequence is shown below.

Set Up Requirements

In order to create Light-O-Rama sequences, your virtual layout needs to be created within the software before programming can begin. If your display contains solely non-RGB lights and you would like to use LOR Showtime Designer Classic (S4), we need a channel configuration file for the Sequence Editor and a visualization for the LOR Visualizer. If your display contains any smart RGB devices, a preview will need to be created in LOR Showtime Designer Pixels (S5) Sequencer that contains both your RGB and non-RGB lights. If you are unsure of how to design your display or assign your channels, we would be happy via our Custom Layout Design Services.

We highly recommend that you complete all of the required layout files yourself in order to ensure everything is in the correct location and that RGB devices are configured in the correct direction. If it is necessary for Luminous Harmony to complete the set up process and create the Channel Configuration, Visualization, or S5 Sequencer Preview, the following documents are required:

  • A spreadsheet with channel assignments and light colors (template can be provided)
  • A drawing of the display layout with clear references to the spreadsheet file
  • Digital pictures of any non standard fixtures or devices
  • Written indication of any programming restrictions for devices (example - if strobe lights can only be turned on or off, no fades)

If Luminous Harmony creates these software files, a one-time $15 fee for the Sequence Editor channel configuration and $25 for the Visualizer template will be charged for every increment of 16 regular channels in LOR S4. If you are using LOR S5, a one-time $40 fee will be charged for the Sequencer preview creation of every increment of 16 regular channels. Please contact us for a quote if your display contains RGB; additional fees will apply if your RGB Unit IDs or DMX Universes are missing from the above list of documentation and must be assigned by Luminous Harmony. The incremental cost per 16 AC channels is the same for additions to displays that already have Luminous Harmony previews or visualizations from prior years.
