Windows SBA Download link?

I'm trying to download a Windows version of SBA, but clicking the links on my emails I only get a link expired message (purchased ~7 months ago and working fine on my Mac, but looking to move to a Windows surface)

Is there a client download area somewhere?

thanks,

WISH: Onscreen play/stop buttons on showscreen

Hey Dave,
Hopefully in a future release you can add a play button to the Show Library page.
I'm trying to set this up on a touchscreen windows tablet and not sure how to play the song without having a spacebar.
Equally, single click to load a track would be great too.

thanks!

Re: Show Buddy + Show Buddy Active iPad control

There are a couple of options; 1/ You can setup a laptop somewhere else on stage, and control the laptop from the iPad using VNC or something similar. 2/ Or, as I am in the middle of doing right now, get a Windows 10 tablet like the Microsoft Surface that can run Show Buddy d...

Re: Is anyone running Show Buddy on a mac mini or other mini computer?

I don't know the venues you play, but I wouldn't trust a computer at my feet/pedal board. If you did manage to somehow keep it clean and hidden, you may need to consider airflow and cooling. You'd also have the dmxis module and cables at your feet? By the mixer seems a much safer/cleaner place. Your...

Re: Is anyone running Show Buddy on a mac mini or other mini computer?

I use a MacBook with no problem, so there's no reason a mac mini would have an issues. How would you control it?

I was thinking of using a raspberry pi style SBC mounted behind my mixer, but there is no Linux/arm support so that idea was cancelled.

Re: Forward/Backward

Hey Joe,
I'm not sure if it's just me - but once you set up the chase, hit save, change to a different preset, then back to the one you just made.
This can often sync everything up together.

What you are doing should work, I have chases going both ways.

Hey Dave, I just purchased SBA this morning, along with ordering some new lights to add to what I've been using with DMXIS (total of 20 LED's now, so still quite small, but good for the level I play at). I'm reworking all of my presets from DMXIS and really enjoying having the visualiser available. ...

Slightly off topic, but if I use ShowBuddy Active with my DMXIS hardware, does that mean I no longer would use the DMXIS software?

Re: DMXIS Automation addon idea/prototype

So.... I couldn't find DMXIS for Raspberry PI, even though last week I'm sure I saw a download link.

In any case, my original plan still works, but the Raspberry PI will be replaced by my MacBook until I buy a Intel NUC or other small Windows PC.

Does each fixture have a dimmer that you control within DMXIS? If so, select them all and put chase to 1 and type t...

Re: MIDI device not showing in DMXIS application

Are you expecting to see DMXIS as an available midi device?

There's no hardware midi in DMXIS so there is nothing to show in the midi hardware options.
It will show midi devices connected to your PC, like a foot controller or audio interface etc.

Is there something not working for you?

Re: New set up requirements

Hi Darren,
What sort of control do you want, and do you use backing tracks at all with your duo?

What lights do you have, how do you place them, any photos?

Do you use a laptop or tablet at your gigs now?

The more info the better.

Re: Oscillators won't work after update 1.5.7 from 1.6.3

I'm pretty sure the oscillator gets its clock from the audio input, so you need to have something selected otherwise there is nothing to sync to

You can have no output selected, that's fine.

Re: DMX Newbie

DMXIS hardware will take in up to 2 footswitchs, via the TRS port.

DMXIS will also take in midi commands from your laptop, so you could use a midi footswitch like the one I listed above to give you more than 2 footswitches.
