Following its debut appearance at NAMM 2016, the new Swarm Wash FX from Chauvet DJ is now available, providing mobile DJs with a range of eye-catching four-in-one effects, thanks to its rotating derby, UV LEDs, red/green laser and white SMD strobes.
The new Swarm Wash FX has been fitted with a four separate features that allow users to produce a range of looks. Colourful moonflower effects can be created using the RGBAW rotating derby, while an additional LED source of eight quad-colour (RGB+UV) diodes enables mobile DJs to wash the dance-floor will UV colour.
Adding to the mix, Chauvet DJ has also equipped the new fixture with a powerful laser comprising two diodes, one red (100mW) and one green (30mW), and a ring of 12 white 1W SMD strobes, allowing users to project overhead laser beams and create intense strobe effects that are ideal for getting the party started.
These four-in-one multi-colour effects make the Swarm Wash FX suitable as a centrepiece for mobile rigs, while using multiple units can bring colour and movement to the dance-floor and create energetic over-head effects that look great with fog or haze. Furthermore, with wide coverage angles attributed to each feature (ranging from 46-82⁰) mobile DJs have the scope to produce a wide-reaching display for their guests.
In terms of control, users have access to 2- and 18-channel DMX modes; Auto and Sound Active programs (for a quick set up); and the option to use the separately sold IRC-6 wireless remote – the latter of which offers control over the Swarm Wash FX’s primary features. Multiple units can also be easily data-linked via the XLR connectors, for DJs who want to get more creative with their lightshow.
Well-suited to the modern mobile rig, the Swarm Wash FX weighs in at a modest 4.2kg and boasts compact dimensions (335 x 332 x 241mm), allowing mobile DJs to incorporate multiple units into their setup should they wish. The power for these units can then be conveniently linked, enabling users to run up to 26 units at 230V. Chauvet DJ also sells a carry bag, the CHS-40 VIP Gear Bag, which is designed for transporting and storing the Swarm Wash FX safely.
