You need to tell us where you're at; and if there's no one in the area, I'm sure someone can help you online.

DMX controllers

Post by erikschorr » Wed Jun 10, 2009 4:05 pm

If you're not familiar with outboard DMX controllers, or don't want to spend the money for a "universal" controller, it's actually easier to get a USB-to-DMX adapter, and use supplied software (or write your own) to do all your DMX stuff.

I've heard these are pretty good systems:
http://dmxusb.com/

http://www.enttec.com/index.php?main_me ... s&pn=70304

Many of them can be controlled with windows or linux software, and most of them are buffered, so can continue sending the proper DMX signal even if the source has been disconnected.
