||Select one or more universes||None|
||Return the current selection||A selection string|
The Universe command selects one or more universes in the system. Universes are the logical blocks of 512 DMX channels that are sent and/or received by the CueServer across the Ethernet network. Use the Universe command in conjunction with an action command like Enable, Disable, or Set to enable/disable the universe or to change the universe’s properties (such as it’s broadcast priority). When used alone or in logic expressions, the Universe command returns
1 to indicate is the universe is disabled or enabled.
Either a single universe number can be specified, or a range of universes can be specified using the various selection operators like +, -, > and ~.
The wildcard character
* can be used as the universe number to mean all universes.
Determining Which Universes Are Selected
The question mark
? can be used to ask what the current selection is. A selection string will be returned, which will consist of a single number (like
3) or a range (like
5>7+9), or if no universes are selected,
0 will be returned.
Selects universe 1. Future action commands will be directed towards universe 1. Also returns
1to indicate if the universe is currently disabled or enabled.
Universe 3 Disable

Universe 1>3+5>8 Enable
Enables universes 1 through 3 and 5 through 8.
Set Universe.Priority 150
