SoundSwitch Fixture Manager User Guide
Welcome to the SoundSwitch Fixture Manager User Guide! This guide will help you understand and use the Fixture Manager application effectively.
What is the Fixture Manager?
The Fixture Manager is a tool designed for creating fixture personalities compatible with the SoundSwitch Desktop Software and Engine Lighting-supported Hardware.
NOTE: Any fixtures created using the Fixture Manager require SoundSwitch 2.8.1 or newer.
The Fixture Manager offers two main workflows:
1. Public Sharing Workflow: Create a fixture personality and share it in a public database for yourself and others to use.
2. Local Workflow: Develop fixture personalities that are instantly available in the SoundSwitch fixture library without the need for public sharing.
With the Fixture Manager, you can not only create fixture personalities but also edit official Production Fixture Personalities by SoundSwitch and Public Fixture Personalities created by other users.

Additionally, we've provided tutorials to guide you through creating common fixture types:

In order to use the SoundSwitch Fixture Manager, you require an "inMusic Profile." To create this profile, follow the link provided below. Once you have created your inMusic Profile, you can use the login information (credentials) from that profile to sign in when you open the fixture manager. This allows you to access and use the SoundSwitch Fixture Manager.
Please keep in mind these important community guidelines:
- Use the public server at your own risk; functionality isn't guaranteed.
- SoundSwitch may block users for abusive behavior, but local files remain accessible.
- Periodically, the support team may transfer files from the public to production servers.
- SoundSwitch reserves the right to remove personalities from the public server for various reasons.
Support Policy for Public Fixtures:
SoundSwitch's policy regarding public-created fixtures is as follows:
1. No Troubleshooting or Assistance: SoundSwitch will not provide troubleshooting or assistance for fixtures created by the public.
2. Contact SoundSwitch Support: If you require a fixture profile or encounter any issues related to fixtures, please contact the SoundSwitch support team directly as they can create a official personality for you.
3. Fixture Profile Creation: The support team will create a fixture profile for you and offer assistance with any fixture-related concerns you may have.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in following this policy.
