Create Your Own Harmony Sequencing

Overview

The “Create Your Own Harmony” series is a middle ground between a Canned sequence and a Custom show. This unique sequence series gives you the musical synchronization quality of a Luminous Harmony custom show without the configuration limitations of a one-layout canned sequence or the time requirements and preparation of going custom. This concept allows you to choose from different configurations for each set of 16 channels (up to 64) based on what works best for your layout so that you ultimately “Create Your Own” show. By following our layout guidelines when planning your display, this sequence series can eliminate the need for you to spend time trying to adapt a sequence after purchase, but still allow you creative freedom when designing the layout of your display. Sequences are added to our library each year throughout the spring and summer; like us on Facebook or check back to our website to stay up to date on new releases.

Design Your Layout

Luminous Harmony offers five different configurations to choose from for each additional set of 16 channels in your display after choosing one of two configurations for your first 16 channel controller.

For a visual overview of how to design your layout to work with our Create Your Harmony sequences, watch our Luminous Harmony "How To" video on Create Your Own Harmony Show Design.

The diagram below shows a few different options for each of our five configurations. The pictures show examples of common arrangements, but feel free to creatively make the options work with your layout while following the concept of each configuration. You can view our channel assignment recommendation examples per configuration, or watch videos of our Create Your Own Harmony shows for more ideas of how to design your display. Please be aware that haphazardly grouping fixtures together that don’t truly match one of the configurations will result in a lower quality sequence.

CYOH Configuration Diagram.

For each set of 16 channels that are in your display, you will choose the configuration that works best with your layout. After you place your order, we'll create a copy of our master template for each sequence and configure it to match the controllers and channel assignments in your display. More channels in your display means more musical elements can be clearly brought out through the lights. For example, a 16 channel display might only be able to bring out the main melody of a song and occasional percussion without looking chaotic. As you expand in number of channels, the background vocal/instrumental/percussion lines can be brought out through those additional groups of fixtures in a more organized and artistic way.

Did you know that our unique format also allows you to further customize your "Create Your Own Harmony" layout? You can customize your sequence by choosing which specific fixtures in your display you want to have bring out certain musical elements (Main Melody, Percussion/Beats, and Harmonies/Background Vocals). For example, "channels 17-32" do not actually need to be on Controller 2. If you feel your Controller 3 or 4 would be better suited to bring out the percussion line, no problem! All you have to do is change the Unit ID after purchase.

Pricing

Pricing for Create Your Own Harmony sequences is determined by how many groups of 16 channels are in your display. All sequences will be preconfigured to fit your channels before delivery as part of the price.

Music is not provided with the sequences due to copyright laws and must be purchased separately. We recommend purchasing the mp3 files from the listed audio links in the sequence library in order to guarantee that the music will line up with the sequence; music from other providers may have varying seconds of silence prior to the song’s start, meaning the music may not match up with our programming if you use those files.

Our "Classic" 16, 32, 48, and 64 channel Create Your Own Harmony sequences are delivered in protected format since the shows will already be configured to work with whichever one of our 312 layout options matches your display. All you will have to do is attach the music file to the sequence and your show will be ready to add to a playlist. If you need to add unique or non-AC channel fixtures into your sequence after purchase (such as singing faces or custom pixel props), please select the “Modifiable” version of the sequence when placing your order to receive an editable copy of the show file.

Channels in Display Classic Sequence Modifiable Sequence
16 $29.99 $49.99
32 $34.99 $54.99
48 $39.99 $59.99
64 $44.99 $64.99

How to Order

If you already know which configuration you want for each set of 16 channels and which songs you’d like to purchase, please submit a Create Your Own Harmony Sequence Order Form.

Tanks For Your Service Sequence 2020

This year's "Tanks for Your Service" sequence is "Wrong Side of Heaven" by Five Finger Death Punch. You will need Light-O-Rama version 5.1.0 or higher to play this sequence, and license level "Pro" to use any of the pixel effects. The Tanks For Your Service sequence creation each year is sponsored by the Holiday Lighting Think Tank.

You can download our version of the TFYS sequence below, then purchase the audio from the provided Amazon link. The Unit ID/Channel assignments for our sequence can be found in our layout document, along with what parts of the music each group of channels is assigned to so that you can better customize how the sequence will fit into your display.

Create Your Own Harmony FAQs

When you purchase a “canned” sequence or receive a pre-programmed sequence from another light show enthusiast, it is rare that the show will actually work with the setup of your display unless you change your layout to match the exact channel configuration of the sequence. After you purchase one of those sequences, you usually have to spend hours changing the channel configuration to work with your own, or you have to take bits and pieces of the programming that work with your display, sometimes even needing to combine multiple versions of the sequence from different sources to end up with something that works for your layout.

Specific setups in canned sequences don’t always translate well to other configurations. For example, the programming for four colors on four mini trees would be very different from two arches with eight channels each. The C.Y.O.H. series adapts each song’s melody, harmony, and percussion rhythms to work properly with the allotted 16, 32, 48, or 64 channels in the sequence, arranged in the configuration options you choose

With a “Create Your Own Harmony” sequence, there are no needed extra hours of work after you purchase a sequence if you choose one of our 312 ways to set up a show. And if you DO decide to add additional props, you'll know exactly which musical themes are assigned to which channels in a C.Y.O.H. sequence, which will ease your process of show expansion. By answering the configuration questions in our order form, we can configure your C.Y.O.H. sequence to match the correct configuration options for your display before you recieve it.

Our sequences are all programmed by a musician with over a decade of experience using Light-O-Rama software. Check out the videos in our Create Your Own Harmony sequence library to see examples of the high quality programming you can expect from a Luminous Harmony sequence.

If this is your first year or you need help configuring your established display to the C.Y.O.H. setup, please visit our design services page. All first year displays that use Luminous Harmony design services have guaranteed compatibility with all shows in the C.Y.O.H. series.

Due to the complexity of most main melodies, it works best programming wise to have multiple groups of non-overlapping fixtures (four groups of four), or a straight line of elements (one group of sixteen) in order to have maximum musical versatility. The other three configurations will also generally take up less space in your display, and we want the main melody to be a large and featured element of your show!

Yes! With both the Classic and Modifiable sequences, you choose which of our configurations matches your display for each set of 16 channels. The Modifiable version simply gives you unlocked access to our code and timing grid so that you can add in your own sequencing for props that are unique to your display.

Our custom sequencing services allow you to have any song sequenced to the specific set up of your display.

New C.Y.O.H. songs will be released throughout the year for various holidays and events. Sign up for our mailing list or like our page on Facebook to receive information about new shows and promotions.

While purchasing a C.Y.O.H. sequence is a faster process than custom sequencing, we recommend making initial contact at least 3 Days before you need your shows since we custom configure every sequence you purchase to match the layout in your order form. Sequences ordered duing non-peak season times may be delivered more quickly. If you would also like Luminous Harmony to design your layout, we recommend making contact at least 6 weeks prior to your show premiere to ensure we still have space for the season.

You can expand your display and receive updated C.Y.O.H. sequences as long as your display upgrades within one of the available configurations, and fits within the channel counts available.

The price to upgrade per 16 channels is $9.99 - this covers receiving the additional 16 channels as well as a reconfiguration of channel assignments for the entire sequence.

The show completely changes as you grow in number of channels due to the assignment of the melody, percussion, and harmony music lines, meaning that if you order a configuration #1 for both your first and second sets of 16, the programming will be different. If you order a show with 16 channels one year, then upgrade the sequence to a 32 channel show in the next, the programming for the first set of 16 channels will completely change when the second set is added.

After you've provided the necessary information about your configuration via our order form, you will receive a link to a Google Drive folder that will contain all of the C.Y.O.H. sequences you purchase. If you would prefer to receive your sequences via email, let us know through the order form or by sending a message to sequencing@luminousharmony.com.
