Controlling other DMX figures with pixel mapping

Question - I have some pixel tape that I and controlling with Madmapper and everything is working out great. We're also using QLC+ to control some face and stage lighting, but I'm wondering if I could control them with MadMapper as well.

I have some bar lights that have 8 individual sections that can be pixel mapped (RGB). The only challenge is that there is a master strobe and master dimmer on the last two channels. Unfortuantely, there is not a mode without the Master Dimmer function. If I could have it set permanantly at 255, that would work. Is there a way to specify a DMX channel to a specific value?

Yes there are a lot of options to control special DMX fixtures, not only using R,G,B,L (luminance), W (white) etc.
A full example in the screenshot, here the fixture is made of
Channel 1: Red
Channel 2: Green
Channel 3: Blue
Chennel 4: A slider will control this 8 bits value (you can control this slider with the mouse, with a MIDI controller, a keyboard key, OSC, playstation controller or even DMX input)
Channel 5: A slider - same
Channel 6: Fixed value: 255

Hope it's clear enough
