Best free app for iPad?

(1/8) > >>

Tim Weaver:
So I have a band that bought some led cans and the Enttec ODE because the guy at the store said it was the ticket.

I wouldnít have done it this way, but whatever. Itís bought.


The rig is exceedingly simple. Two trees. Some ADJ hexpars. White light only, turn it on and leave it on. Since we already use iPads for mixing, monitors, lyrics, charts, etc. I might as well use the iPad to turn the lights on and off.

So Iíve never used any iPad apps for lighting but all Iíve ever heard about is Luminaire. I downloaded it and Leo and behold itís a subscription service. Iím not paying monthly to turn on the white lights at the start of the show. Especially since only do about one show a month! Lol

So are there any free apps out there that arenít DJ focused? Apps that I might understand coming from a real lighting desk?

Nate Zifra:
I just came across this the other day, and haven't had a chance to try it out, but At Full from Blizzard Lighting might check the boxes for you.  The free version appears to give you the ability to create basic scenes and chases.  Then you can pay to upscale it for FX and other features.  It says it will work with ArtNet and sACN interfaces.

Yes Luminair just started doing that. Those of us who were already using the app are grandfathered in and can continue to use Luminair v3 bought and paid for.
Look at Vibrio....http://vibriolighting.com

Hi Tim, wondering if you ever messed around with Vibrio or similar and have any feedback. I'm at a point where I'm looking to get away from D Pro and off a laptop to an iPad based system that I can hand to volunteers on occasion.
