The best I have found for software only DMX control is Enlighten by Mega-Lite. It has a great User interface and I use it with a touch screen so it make it feel real hands on. I found info at www.enlightenpro.com.


interesting software...not what i'd consider overly stable though, within five minutes of use i was able to generate at least 4 different error codes doing basic things with some 250 kryptons patched in

reminds me of light jockey hahaha

i like the mini-media server that's built in though

Nothing like a bit of thread necromancy to round out the year, eh?

i use freestyler a lot with that controller.
its actually not bad software. older versions were quite buggy and crashed more. but the latest has seemed to be very stable.

there is a lot you can do with it. some of it can be limiting and harder with moving lights though, depending on what you want to do.

though... i prefer to pull out my LP-X24 any day of the week, if I have the time or room to program and set it up.

Hi
are any of these wirelessly controllable via laptop? I'm just starting to explore software control options but would need a cat5 remote atleast. Wireless network would be preferable.

Thanks

you might try Elation's Compupro. They have 3 or 4 different versions of it, but the older versions may work, may not. It has an easy graphic inerface, easy to set up, easy to control.

By the way, it's a free download from their site.... www.elationlighting.com



Thats what I use, elations compulive.  Never crashed on me, it does take a little learning to get into intermediate programing.  The only thing I dont like is with the moving heads when I go to manually move them it has a 5 to 10 second delay before you can actually move the fixture with the mouse, pain in the booty when you are setting up alot of movements.

Looking back on this thread has reminded me again that I should not rely on other people's opinions to make recommendations.

Several of my former clients had purchased Bluelight and were quite happy with it. I looked at the website and it seemed quite impressive, especially at the "introductory" price.
Earlier this year I was sub-contracted to install a system that used the current version, and I was looking forward to learning a new system's tricks. Truly disappointing.

Disapointing in what respect, Duane?
