  • August 5th — Lead time on shipping Element 2 Consoles is estimated at 18 weeks *  once the factory is given an order (which will also secure your place in line).

    The primary cause of this longer than normal lead time is a critical "brain" chip which interfaces the circuit board to other devices.  When ETC noticed supply issues earlier this year, they tested similar chips as a drop-in replacement (no success), and started a redesign process on moving to an entirely new chip.  Despite shipping consoles at near-2019 levels, supply of the old "brain" chip continues to outstrip demand, which in turn has increased lead times.
  • * Due to the rapidly changing situation, lead time can change within hours of an update.  Sometimes it can be extended due to supply chain issues like delayed/missing packages of critical parts.
  • The good news is ETC has secured an ample supply of the new "brain" chips, so once the redesign is complete they can build at scale.  Despite the different chip, it does not affect product functionality or quality.

The Element 2 console adapts the award-winning Eos family control platform for venues with modest rigs and maximum hands-on fader control needs.  Affordable and easy to use, Element 2 brings the fundamentals of lighting control to the forefront while allowing access to a wealth of advanced control features below the surface.  Simply record cues and fade times into Element's cue list for basic playback, or use effects, palettes, cue parts, discrete timing and follow times to create intricate lighting looks and transitions.

Need a setup that can be run by students or volunteers?  Customizable Magic Sheets let you create a simple topographical or abstract interface to quickly control your rig from a touchscreen monitor.  Use the Element 2 console's pageable, LTP (Latest Takes Precedence) faders to directly control your channels, or flip a switch and use them to control submasters, IFCB palettes, presets, manual timing and global effects masters and more.  Element 2 provides the same generous programming keypad as the larger desks in the Eos family, so you can move between consoles with ease.
