Just stumbled upon this lovely track from an upcoming EP: sourced from this little talk with DMX Krew about some acid tracks: http://www.beatsandbeyond.com/featured/talking-acid-dmx-krew.html EP upcoming somewhere this month :) --- As bitroast (I think) posed earlier, a subforum would be a good idea for DMX Krew, considering his cons(is)t(a/e)nt output.
My band is in the process of putting together a relatively DIY light setup that we can take with us put together at shows. Right now our plan is to purchase a few LED lights strips and use those to illuminate the stage. Additionally, we're are interested in the possibility of having these LEDs react to MIDI signals from our instruments. My question is this: Does anyone have experience with stage lighting and have you encountered an affordable strategy for converting our MIDI signals into DMX signals and outputting them to our LEDs? Ideally the system would allow us to identify the separate MIDI signals by channel and filter the different MIDI parameters to control light intensity, color, and fade time, etc... Now, I've got a good working knowledge of Max/MSP 5 so I could probably, with a little reading up about the DMX protocol, build exactly the custom patch I require. I may very well end up doing this. What I will then need is a USB to DMX interface so that I can send the DMX signals out of my computer. I found the Anyma uDMX which is roughly $250(!) and the ChamSys MagicDMX which is waaay more affordable but their FAQ suggests that it has some proprietary nonsense which will not allow me to use it without their lightning software. Does anyone know of a good, affordable, alternative?
