Title: what dmx controller should i get
Post by: dave celko on April 30, 2013, 04:55:25 pm
currently im running 5  dmx controllable lasers on just sound active mode.
2 four head lasers ( 2 green heads and 2 red with mixed yellow ) 12 channels of control
and 3 single  head lasers that are red/purple and mixed pink  9 channels of control

the only other laser i may add will be an dmx/ilda laser but if i do i want to run that one with ilda instead of dmx to take advantage of what it can do

i will add a few other small lights, few led light bars and a dmx strobe


any recomendations on a controller for somone who has never used one and will be learning

Elation Showdesigner 1 MAP $749. Will do all that you have plus what you are planning later plus more down the road. Learning curve is not bad, capabilities are very good.

I picked up a Showdesigner 1 after reading many recommendations here, from Duane and others.  I was new to it as well, and this controller has proven to be fairly easy to learn and pretty flexible for what it is.  Most of my lights are 6-12 channels...

Hope that helps, good luck.
