Syncing Light Show with Music
« on: September 29, 2013, 02:54:11 pm »

Say I want to design a light show for a specific song, carefully timing all the lighting up with the music.  How can a DMX controller be synced to music?

Just doing some preliminary investigating for a small venue.  The budget for the control system would be under $10,000, but I would be interested in how the pros do it.

Thanks!

A quick Internet search for "synchronizing DMX to music" yielded a few dozen results/options.

it is done via tTimecode...try either a GMA on PC or a MARTIN M2GO....for example (with your sepc'd budget). however this to get this spot on it takes a lot of time. otherwise  you can rough it in by using follow and next commands.

Do you mean a recorded song, or a live performance? It does make a difference.
