well i can tell u right now that you won't be able to assign reverse pan/tilt with that controller. it is basicaly a 24 ch. dmx dimmer board. and u don't have any assignable fixture buttons. so personally i would sell that and get something like the dmx operator. the controller u have now is mainly used for pars and other various effcts not dmx scanners. you only have 24 channels which i think won't be enough for all 8 of ur scanners unless u run them all at the same starting address. time to upgrade! my two watts on it. let me know if u need anything else. or if i skipped something. p.s. if u have 8 or 10 dj scans you will be using 32 to 40 dmx channels. you could get away with puting them all at the starting address of one but why limit your self to having them all do the same stuff?? in my honest opinion the cooles things are to have more control over all the lights individualy and create mulitple looks with diferent lights. you know? jingles!
