Offering a combination of convenience and portability, with many of the advanced functions you'd only expect from a full-sized lighting board, the Obey 40 puts a ton of flexibility in your rack. Eight faders let you take control of up to 12 intelligent lights and 192 channels of DMX. A total of 30 banks of eight instantly selectable scenes lets you set up complex shows, and a set of six chase effects controls makes adding energy to your shows easy. On top of that, you even get fog and strobe control built right into the Chauvet Obey 40 DMX controller.

Compact enough for a mobile rig, powerful enough for installations

You don't need to cart around a large-format lighting board to create an impressive light show anymore, thanks to the compact yet flexible Chauvet Obey 40. With its extended feature set, not only does the Obey 40 let you control a multitude of simple fixtures, it also lets you get the most out of intelligent lights. What's more, you can set up complex chase effects and up to 240 entire lighting scenes before your show, making it easy to jump from one entire configuration to the next.

All of the hands-on controls you need to create memorable shows on the fly

If you've ever dealt with a minimalist lighting controller, then you already know how frustrating it can be to try and make changes on the fly without enough hands-on controls to tweak your lights effectively. Chauvet's Obey 40 controller makes this easy by providing you with eight dedicated faders and more than enough buttons to jump between scenes, trigger chases, and edit deeper functions on the fly. You'll be amazed by how easy it is to sit down at the Obey 40 and create a truly impressive light show.

Advanced controls let you operate strobe fixtures and fog machines

It's easy to add your advanced lighting gear into your Obey 40 rig, if you have a Chauvet strobe fixture or fog machine. These typically come equipped with special control ports (a 1/4" jack for strobes and a proprietary DIN for fog machines), which let you plug right into your lighting controller to make them part of your show. On top of that, the Obey 40 features MIDI input, which lets you sync your scenes and other events with your DJ software, DAW, or other MIDI sequencers.

Chauvet Obey 40

I bought it for our church and am disappointed that it doesn't allow me to fade the lights between scenes and that it doesn't retain any memory. It seems overly complicated and maybe I just haven't figured out how to properly program it. It will suffice until I can find the right board.

Obey 40

I purchased the Obey 40 to control my new Tri Bar lights . The Chauvet Tri bar is excellent . My complaint is with trying to learn how to operate it with the Chauvet Tri Bar light ." IT IS EXTREMLY DIFFICULT " The instructions are not very clear , especially for a first timer such as me . I have spent several days reading and watching many videos and I still have not figured this system out ! I am rating it low because of the difficulty in learning how to operate it . It may be a great controller , but for novice like me , it is way to hard to understand.

Chauvet lighting Obey 40 controller

I bought the Obey 40 to control 2-4BAR Tri's and 2-6SPOT's after seeing a similar setup on Youtube. Unfortunately, the documentation that comes with the lights is useless, and the help that you get from the people at Chauvet is even more useless. I've managed to figure out some of the way these things work from watching Youtube videos, but for the most part, I am sadly disappointed, and feel that they are not worth spending the money on (the lights and controller are well built, but the operating instructions suck!). I wish I'd gone with someone else's light system.
