Proteus Tutorial: Working with Modes.
Note: The features described below refer to version 2.0 or later of the Proteus Operating System.

Proteus Modes.  If you have not yet explored the various modes available in Proteus, or have recently updated your operating system to version 2.0 or later,  this brief tutorial will review the operating modes available to you.

Modes are the various ways in which Proteus can function.  Much of the power of the  three-button interface is due to this ability to quickly select the features associated with each mode.  

Pressing the middle ('mode') button steps through the various functions described in the table below. 

 


Mode

Name

Function

Pxx

Program memory bank

One of two separate program storage areas. Proteus ships with fifty sessions stored in this area, numbered P00 – P49.

Uxx

User memory bank

A second internal memory area, recommended for storage of sessions you’ve created yourself, downloaded from the Internet, etc.

Usr

User (manual) mode

Use this mode to select individual frequencies by hand.

PC

PC (personal computer) mode

Use this mode if you are creating your own programs on a PC and would like to preview them in real time. Also used when Proteus is being controlled by a biofeedback device, such as ThoughtStream.

AS

AudioStrobe mode

Use this to play AudioStrobeR encoded audio (CD’s, etc.) through Proteus.

DL

Download mode

For downloading firmware (OS) upgrades and session(s).

 

Here's a description of how each of the modes operate: 


Pxx


1.     Press the Mode Select (middle) button until the display reads “Pxx”, where “xx” is a number between 01 and 99. (Program 00 is permanently set as the “random” program).

2.     Select a session by pressing the bottom button. A single press causes the display to increment one step at a time, while pressing and holding it causes the display to increment automatically. Notice that the rate at which the session number is displayed speeds up when you hold the button down.

3.     TIP: you can cause the display to decrement rather than increment if you press the Start (top) button together with the bottom button. Be sure you press and hold the bottom button first then press the top button.

4.     Press the Start (top) button to start a session.

 

Uxx


1. Press the Mode Select (middle) button until the display reads “Uxx”, where “xx” is a  number between 00 and 99.

Note: If there are no sessions stored in the Uxx area or if they have been overwritten by a download to the “Pxx” area the Proteus will not display the “Uxx” mode.

2. Select a session by pressing the bottom button. A single press causes the display to increment one step at a time, while pressing and holding causes the display to increment automatically. Notice that the rate at which the session number is displayed increases as you hold the button down.

3.     TIP: you can cause the display to decrement rather than increment if you press the Start (top) button together with the bottom button. Be sure you press and hold the bottom button first then press the top button.

4.  Press the Start (top) button to start a session.

 

Usr


Use this mode to manually select and run specific frequencies without the use of a PC connection.  

1.  Press the Mode Select button until the display shows "Usr".

2.  Press the Start/Stop (top) button  once. The light and sound will begin an eight second soft-on sequence. If you press it twice the soft-on sequence will be skipped and the session will begin at full brightness and volume.

At this point, the lights and sound will run steadily at whatever frequency is shown in the display. If you'd like to change to another pulse rate, or between on/off and left/right modes, do this:

3.  Press and hold the select key to increment the current flash rate in 0.1 hz increments.

TIP: you can cause the display to decrement rather than increment if you press the Start (top) button together with the bottom button. Be sure you press and hold the bottom button first then press the top button.

4.  Press the mode/pause key to toggle between LightFrame+audio on/off and left/right. If the left and right decimals on the display are flashing left/right, then so are the lights and sound.

Note: While in user mode you can also adjust the LightFrame color mode or switch between external audio and digital data input.

5. You can change the audio pitch by holding down the middle and bottom buttons at the same time. The pitch will increase to 400 Hz then shut off for one second before starting over at 40 Hz. The pause is for those people who want to use external audio without any internal sound.

 

PC


This powerful feature, introduced with the release of version 1.6 of the Proteus operating system, is used for two primary functions:  real-time preview of sessions you are editing with Proteus Editor, and for setting Proteus to be controlled via biofeedback (initialu, ThoughtStream).  To use this mode,  just press Mode Select until PC is displayed, and follow the instructions in your software documentation for proper use of this mode.

 

AS


AudioStrobeR is one of the most powerful features included in Proteus.  When you select this mode, any AudioStrobe-encoded compact disc will control the LightFrames, allowing precise synchronization between the lights and the audio on the disc.    We've included an AudioStrobe sampler CD with your system, and suggest that you explore this disc to gain a clear idea of what it is capable of.  Contact your dealer for more information about the various available titles.

Tip:  for best results, connect the Proteus audio input to the line output on your CD player.  Then plug your headphones into the headphone jack on your CD player.  Eliminating the audio path through Proteus improves the audio quality of your experience.  

To use AudioStrobe:

1.  Press the Mode Select (middle) button until the display reads “AS”.

2.  Connect your audio source (CD player or PC) to the AUX input on the lower right side of Proteus.

3.  Start your CD and settle back!  Use the volume control on  your CD player to adjust the audio volume; light brightness is adjusted as usual via the top right control knob on Proteus.



 

DL


Use this mode to download sessions and operating system upgrades into Proteus.  You will always know if data is actually making its way into the system because the display digits will rapidly change during download.  

To use this mode, select it by pressing the Mode Select button.  Then follow the instructions included with the reference guide included with the operating system version you are currently using.
