Launched in 2016, Absolute Cycle has become Asia's leading rhythm cycling studio, featuring venues with sound and lighting systems designed to make working pedals as much fun as working a dance floor.
To achieve the latest round of upgrades to Absolute’s four Singapore-based studios, the system integrator chose French lighting software experts Chromateq to create fresh control solutions.
During the past four years, Absolute has conducted over 10,000 sessions, led by a sizable roster of instructors who play the role of DJs while working the class into a healthy sweat.
With a growing chain of locations and expanding mix of music playlists, the project called for a flexible system that would allow for frequent onsite custom lighting programming. And with such a large rotation of class instructors, the playback system also needed to be as simple and reliable as pushing a button.
To meet these two requirements, Chromateq’s highly-customizable PRO DMX software was used in combination with Chromateq’s Club 1024 controller.
A custom touch screen trigger button layout was created in PRO DMX that perfectly matched the studio’s color scheme. The software’s instant response to trigger input in LIVE mode allows instructors to easily and reliably choose their desired light shows with the touch of a button, as well as access to blackout and other general function scenes.
Chromateq’s founder, Vianney Bourjot, has been delighted with the cooperation: “This is the type of project that allows us to demonstrate the advantages of working with our team to provide technical advice before, during and after the installation.”
“We enjoy bringing our decade plus of experience in both entertainment and architectural lighting to the discussions, especially where fun lifestyle concepts like this one are involved. The fitness coaches get to enjoy doubling as light jockeys, and we enjoy offering a solution that allows for customizing the user interface to the client’s needs.”
